Blogger friend Birgit of BB Creations is a movie maven. (I don't know anyone else who has seen Start the Revolution Without Me.) Several days ago, she did a post around the concept of six degrees of separation. Within five moves, she connected Strangers on a Train to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure in five moves.  Check out the post yourself.

After reading Birgit's post, I wondered if you could connect any two actors within six moves.  Bela Lugosi and Tina Fey, for instance.  Birgit made the connection, but she's giving me a chance to make my connection before unveiling hers. If she hadn't, I probably wouldn't.  Researching the question was fun and didn't take as long as I thought it would. 

So, here you go: How Bela Lugosi and Tina Fey are connected.

1. Bela Lugosi and Greta Garbo co-starred in Ninotchka.

2.  Greta Garbo was in Grand Hotel with Joan Crawford.

3. Joan Crawford starred in "Eyes", an episode on Night Gallery, which was directed by Steven Spielberg.

4. Steven Spielberg directed Lincoln, in which Joseph Gordon Leavitt portrayed Robert Todd Lincoln.

5. Joseph Gordon Leavitt played an uncredited cameo bit in The Brothers Bloom starring Mark Ruffalo.

6. Mark Ruffalo had a role in Date Night starring Tina Fey

BINGO!

  1. That is excellent! I did something completely different. Way to go!! OK here is mine-Bela Lugosi co-starred with Boris Karloff is "The Body Snatchers". Boris Karloff starred in "Targets" (a great film) which was directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Peter Bogdanovich directed Madeline Kahn in "What's Up Doc". Madline Kahn was the guest star on "Saturday Night Live" with Will Ferrell and Will Ferrel was one of the prime-time members along with Tina Fey on this TV show. So that is how I linked up but I like yours better. I could link up all the way to madeline kahn in 2 secs but then I got stumped.

    1. Thanks, Birgit! This was fun. Using my intuition, along with Wikipedia, I made choices up to Gordon-Leavitt. Then I went backwards from Tina Fey. Next up is Katherine Hepburn to Zach Galifanakis.
