The Movie-TV Connection Game (September 2017)

Peter Cushing and Harry Hamlin.
Welcome, big-brained game players! As always, you'll 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. George C. Scott and Chuck Connors.

2. Grant Williams and Raquel Welch.

3. Tyrone Power and Sean Connery.

4. Robert Loggia and Robert Wagner.

5. Peter Cushing and Harry Hamlin.

6. Slaughter and Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows.

7. The Absent-Minded Professor and Hobson's Choice.

8. Henry Fonda and Cliff Robertson.

9. Keir Dullea and Eric Braeden.

10. Lee Majors and Glenn Corbett.

11. Edmund O'Brien and Tom Tryon.

12. The Happiest Millionaire and Peter Pan (1953).

13. Clifton Webb and Alec Guinness.

14. Petula Clark and Clint Eastwood.

15. Christopher Lee and Christopher Walken.

    1. Well done on both counts. There are several connections between Fonda and Robertson. There's THE BEST MAN, of course, plus another political connection.

    2. Both Fonda and Robertson played Presidents of the US who would be assassinated -- Fonda in The Young Mr. Lincoln - Robertson in PT109.

  2. Oh dear, I'm terrible at this game, but I usually join in too late, so I'll throw in a few guesses :
    #4 - both played cat burglers on TV
    #7 - both films deal with shoes
    #15 - both actors portrayed Bond villains

    1. You're being too modest! You are right x 3. I thought the "shoes" question might be hard.

  3. 9. Both faced omnipotent (and deadly) computers in sci-fi films; Dullea in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Braeden in Colossus: The Forbin Project
    10. Both played astronauts on TV in the 70s; Majors in The Six Million Dollar Man telefilms and TV series, and Corbett in the 1973 TV movie The Stranger.
    14. Both starred in expensive (and not terribly successful) movie musicals in the 1960s; Clark in Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Eastwood in Paint Your Wagon.

  6. 12. Could it be that they were both made by Disney? That might be a little too obvious. Perhaps these pictures have something else in common.

    Yours Hopefully,

  13. 10. Glenn Corbett guest-starred on Lee Majors' show "The Fall Guy"?

  14. 14. This is a stretch, but... Pet recorded a cover of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and Clint used Roberta Flack's version in "Play Misty For Me?"

  16. Wow, who would have thought that Lee Majors and Glenn Corbett shared so many connections! The first one I thought of was that both played returning Vietnam veterans: Corbett in the TV series ROUTE 66 and Majors in the TV movie THE BALLAD OF ANDY CROCKER.

  17. To close this edition out, the other connection between Clint Eastwood and Petula Clark is boarding schools: Clint in THE BEGUILED and Petula in GOODBYE, MR. CHIPS.
