The Movie-TV Connection Game (March 2017 Edition)

The connection between Jiminy and Gregory?
Spring is almost here! And what better way to celebrate than with the return of the Cafe's most popular game! You will be given a pair or trio of films or performers, your task is to find the common connection. It could be anything--two stars who acted in the same movie, two movies that share a common theme, etc. As always, don't answer all the questions so others can play, too. There is a single best answer for each question.

1. Sharon Tate, Stella Stevens, and Ann-Margret.

2. Leo G. Carroll and Richard Anderson.

3. Elsa Lanchester and Veronica Carlson.

4. David Hasselhoff and Jerry Van Dyke.

5. Ronald Colman and Ray Milland.

6. Warner Oland and Michael Landon.

7. Otto Preminger, Anne Baxter, and Art Carney.

8. Sandra Dee, Lesley Ann Warren, and Karen Valentine.

9. Judy Garland and Moira Shearer.

10. Spencer Tracy and Errol Flynn.

11. Jiminy Cricket and Gregory Peck.

12. Christopher Lambert and Jock Mahoney.

13. Faye Dunaway, Buddy Ebsen, and James Dean.

14. Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Wood.

15. Elizabeth Taylor and Dumbo.

  5. # 1, each co-starred with Dean Martin in a Matt Helm movie. Bizarrely, I literally watched the other one in the series, with Janice Rule as his co-star, just last night!

    # 7, each were Batvillains.

  11. This quiz is moving right along. The only unanswered questions are 10, 13, and 15. There's also another answer for 2.

    1. Excellent job on what was probably the toughest question on this quiz!

      Delete
  13. Sadly, I saw this post too late to jump in on a few of these excellent questions! Nice job, everyone! As for another answer for #2: I believe Richard Anderson guest starred in an episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which featured Leo G. Carroll as Mr. Waverly and both actors were featured in sci-fi films in the 50s; Carroll in "Tarantula" and Anderson in "Forbidden Planet" and "Curse of the Faceless Man"

    1. Very interesting! Another connection is that Anderson and Carroll played the same characters on two different TV series. Carroll was Mr. Waverly in both U.N.C.L.E. TV series and Anderson portrayed the boss of both THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and THE BIONIC WOMAN.

    3. That's right, Rick! I forgot about that! Nice one! By the way, Anderson actually guest starred in two U.N.C.L.E. episodes: The Quadripartite Affair in Season 1 & The Candidate's Wife Affair in Season 3.
