Jane Seymour (Version 2.0) had a voice credit in "The Quest for Camelot," in which Celine Dion did the singing parts of the same character (Lady Juliana).

Here's one for ya. Mr. T.

Mr. T, eh Josh? Yeesh!! Righto, chances are I'm missing something obvious and there may be a shorter way of doing this one, but for now this is all I can come up with!

Mr. T with Talia Shire in Rocky III. Talia Shire starred with Eli Wallach in "The Godfather III" Eli Wallach with Thelma Ritter (from the '53 Titanic) in "The Misfits".

This one has absolutely no relation to any movies, but it's a "Six degrees" to an actual real life connection.

I recently found out that my grandmother took a voyage on the Cunard liner Carmania in 1921.

James Gibson served on the Carmania.

Before serving on the Carmania, Gibson served as apprenctice on the Californian.

Stanley Lord was captain of the Californian.

So there's my connection to Stanley Lord.

Anyone else want to play it this way?

This is likely gonna be more than six degrees for me, and I'm not quite sure how it works out in the end, but on 8 October 1904, a Maria Gulch arrived at Ellis Island via the La Touraine from Le Havre, France.

As we know, La Touraine would later send an iceberg warning to Titanic.

Gustav Schwabe?

Sure, but I thought we had to connect them through movies. Anywho, Gustav Schwabe was the uncle of Gustav Wolff, who was a founder of H&W.

Shelley,

Sorry to be the proverbial Bremen, but here goes:

Myers was in Austin Powers with Elizabeth Hurley

Who was in Bedazzled with Brenden Frasier

Who was in the Mummy with Bernard Fox

Bernard Fox was only Archibald Gracie in the 1997 film, but also appeared as Fleet in ANTR.

Ha!

O.k.-the easiest route would not be Batman but rather Much Ado About Nothing (the only way to keep my senior class awake through Shakespeare back in 1995!)
Keaton starred with Emma Thompson who shared the screen with our own KATE WINSLET in Sense and Sensibility who went on to Cameron's Epic.
Michael Keaton was born Michael John Douglas but since there was already one Michael Douglas in Hollywood-he borrowed Keaton from Diane Keaton! He and I nearly share a birthday- Sept 9, 1951. So-there in TWO Old Bean!

NO!!!!!!!

I've seen that version of Much Ado, but I completly forgot! My solution was 4.

I respectfully (if not reluctanly) relenquish the title.

Darn you!

I'll be back!!!

Very well then, Sean Penn.

Michael Keaton, eh? Okay. Lets make it harder. How about 6 degrees between Michael Keaton & Titanic using only women! here goes:
Michael Keaton was in Speechless and Beetlejuice with Geena Davis. Geena Davis was in Accidential Tourist with Kathleen Turner. Kathleen Turner was in V.I. Warshawski with Anne Pitoniak who was in The 1000 Acres with Jennifer Jason Leigh. Leigh was in Delores Claiborne with Titanic's own Molly Brown--Kathy Bates. OR Drop out Jennifer Jason Leigh and Anne Pitoniak starred on Broadway with Kathy Bates in Night Mother. (I saw it. It was AMAZING!!!!!)
Okay, who's next??

Terry Gilliam star and writer of Monty Python co-wrote Starship Titanic with Douglas Adams. Is that the way it works?

Ooh, good one, Anne! I hadn't thought about that one. I was going with "Time Bandits", which starred John Cleese and Michael Palin (written by Gilliam, I believe) in which there is a section where the 'Bandits' landed on the Titanic.

Your turn.

Best regards,
Cook
