Clue - correct!

Actually I was thinking of Sean Connery starring with Catherine Zeta Jones in Entrapment and she in the same mini-series above. I didn't even know about Diamonds Are Forever!

Barry Bostwick?

I'll name Carrie Fisher in 2.

Can I play ? I watch a lot of guff, so here's proof of my credentials...

Barry Bostwick was in The Rocky Horror Picture Show with Tim Curry ( mmm, I know, but isn't it NICE ???? )

And Tim Curry wandered around being horrid in the Titanic mini series...

Carrie Fisher in Star Wars movies with Alec Guiness, and Mr Guiness in Raise The Titanic.

So, anyone fancy Jennifer Saunders to A Night To Remember in 3 ?

Rocky Horror - yep!

Carrie Fisher's mother Debbie Reynolds played Molly Brown in The Unsinkable Molly Brown (partly set on the Titanic).

Jennifer Saunders - I'm going to take the easy route and say French and Saunders At The Movies, when they did Titanic - "God! It smells like a urinal in here!"

I can do Vanessa Paradis in 6!

Dave, if this is your route, this one really IS a bit obscure. Are you thinking of (1) Jennifer Saunders, who stars with Joanne Lumley in "Ab Fab" and (2) Joanne Lumley starred with Patrick MacNee in "The Avengers" and (3) Patrick MacNee played Thomas Andrews in the television version of "ANTR"?

Good one!

What about Edward G. Robinson to "Titanic" in 2?

Best regards,
Cook

Mine was even more obscure TV

Joanna Lumley was in Sapphire and Steel with the great David McAllum

but I was being naughty...and I like yours 'cos it gets Patrick MacNee in, and you should always try to do that.

Edward G Robinson in Soylent Green with Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston in True Lies, as was Bill Paxton

How about... Bela Lugosi in 2 ?

Bela Lugosi - not got a clue.

Vanessa Paradis:

Played daughter of Gerard Depardieu in some pervy French film.
Depardieu was in Green Card with Andie McDowell.
Andie McDowell was in The Muse that featured James Cameron.
Cameron, as we all know, directed Titanic.

Actually that's 4, not 6. Can't count either.

Mmmm...what about Madonna in 5 to 1997 Titanic?

How about one that links all four major Titanic films, the 1953 Titanic, ANTR, SOS Titanic and Cameron's Titanic?

Clifton Webb who appeared in 1953 Titanic starred with Laurence Naismith in The Man Who Never Was who played Captain Smith in ANTR which starred Norman Rossington as the third class steward (Everyone up top, get yer lifebelts on AT ONCE) who starred as the Master-at-arms in SOS Titanic which also starred David Warner as Laurence Beesley who also starred as Lovejoy on Cameron's Titanic.

Best I can do with Bela Lugosi takes me through "The Old Dark House". Lugosi starred with Boris Karloff in several flicks ("The Black Cat", "The Body Snatcher", etc.) and Boris Karloff was featured in "The Old Dark House" with a very young Gloria Stewart (Old Rose in "Titanic").

Excellent work, John L, in your connecting up the 4 'Titanics'!

Try this one - Vanessa Redgrave in 2.

Best regards,
Cook

Correct answer Pat - though it raises the horrible thought that Ed Wood, Vampira and the Amazing Criswell are but three steps removed...

Vanessa Redgrave in ' Murder On the Orient Express' with Sean Connery

Big Sean with ' The Longest Day' with Kenneth More ?

Actually, I was thinking of Vanessa Redgrave in "Camelot", in which Lawrence Naismith (Capt. Smith in "ANTR") played Merlin. I totally forgot about "Morgan"!

Lord no, have you seen her lately...?

But seriously, well, fairly seriously...

Madonna in Dick Tracy with Dick Van Dyke

Dick Van Dyke in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with Desmond Llewelyn

Desmond Llewelyn in The Living Daylights with Timothy Dalton

Timothy Dalton in Mary Queen of Scots with Vanessa Redgrave

And then, as discussed above for David Warner...
