Capt. Cook- this one will keep you going for the day- BORIS KARLOFF. (had actually hopped for Bela Lugosi but that may be stretching it thin).

You really must be staying up nights! I COULD cheat here and say "Tower of London", in which Karloff starred with Vincent Price and take that route. However, with the popularity of Cameron's movie, the old movie channels have been running "The Old Dark House" again, in which Boris had a feature role along with Gloria Stewart (Old Rose).

Here's an easy one - Richard Harris.

Best regards,
Cook

Since Shelly mentioned this on another thread I thought I'd better answer this last one.

Richard Harris in "Camelot", co-starring Laurence Naismith as Merlin. Naismith as we all know was Captain Smith in "A Night To Remember".

Here's one which has a bit of a twist. Albert Finney, in one step, to 3 (count'em 3) 'Titanic actors' in one movie.

Good luck.

Best regards,
Cook

Albert Finney played Daddy Warbucks in the original Annie film. Victor Garber assumed that role for the Disney version, which also had Kathy Bates. Actor number 3? I yield the floor to the next torch-carrier.

Is the movie Murder on the Orient Express? Am I getting warm? Had NO idea Laurence Naismith was MERLIN!

Well, I won't keep you in suspense any longer. This one may have been an obscure movie except every Christmas they show it at least 3 times - much to my glee as I think it's very good.

"Scrooge", the musical adaptation by Leslie Bricusse, stars Albert Finney in the title role and a sort of who's who of Titanic movies. Alec Guiness, who was in "Raise the Titanic", plays Jacob Marley, and from "A Night To Remember", Kenneth More plays the Ghost of Christmas Present AND Laurence Naismith plays Old Fezziwig. AND, as if this weren't enough, (sorry I don't know his name), the actor who played Evans, the Californian Wireless man in "A Night To Remember", plays a toymaker in "Scrooge". So, actually, there were FOUR Titanic actors in this one.

Thought you all might get a kick out of this one.
Best regards,
Cook

That one takes the cake. Today's bit of trivia-there is a British soft-core p~~~ queen named Titanic Toni (we need not stretch our imagination to guess what portion of anatomy to which this refers!)-she has made 6 forgettable films all with the title containing "Babe"- sigh... what next? On the Brainbuster front (no pun intended), can you Get Back to Titanic in 2 degrees with Patty Duke? * Hint- Celeste Holm, Burl Ives and Ray Bolger have something to do with it!

I can do it in one: She was in Power and the Glory in 1961 with George C. Scott, who played Capt. E.J. Smith in the 1996 TV-Titanic movie.

Well alrighty then! I was thinking of a terrific mini-series called Captains and Kings (the grandaddy of all miniseries) starring Richard Jordan as the Irish immigrant hero. Patty Duke played the miserable long-suffering female lead. It was a great flick with the whole immigration issue, some ship footage, and Richard Jordan who later went on to play DIRK PITT-my hero- in Raise the Tianic. He died far too young- Jordan that is.

Me? Gee whiz. All righty then. Let's see...
Got one.

Peter Cushing.

I can get there in two.

Have fun!

Josh.

Rats. Just thought of something. You can actually get there in one with Cushing.

Do it with one and two degrees, then!

Josh,
Who should'a given it more thought...

Ah HA, Josh! I'm just guessing here but I think you just remembered "Star Wars" in which Cushing costarred with Alec Guiness.

I'm still working on the 'two-step' version.

Best regards,
Cook

Hi Josh,

Okay, I'm really rotten at this, but I *think* I might have your two step....

Cushing starred in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" with Andre Morell (Okay, there's one of my weaknesses.... I adore Sherlock Holmes!
Happy
)

Andre Morell starred in "The Slipper and the Rose" with Kenneth More, who of course, starred in ANTR...
