      This is an easy, short one -

      Robert Hayes (as Ted Striker) - Airplane - Robert Stack (as Kramer)

      Robert Stack (as John Sullivan) - The High and the Mighty - John Wayne (as Dan Roman)

      Pretty short connection for movies that are 26 years apart.

      Ahem...I believe I did one also! :P

      Will Geer ((Pop Chaney) with Harry Carey Jr. (Cort Hayjack) in Bandolero

      Harry Carey Jr. (Brad) with John Wayne (Ethan Edwards) in The Searchers

      and....

      Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain to John Wayne in The Horse Soldiers

      Nicole Kidman (Ada Monroe) with Donald Sutherland (Reverend Monroe) in Cold Mountain

      Claire Trevor (as Janie McDougall) - Allegheny Uprising - John Wayne (as James Smith)

      I have to admit that I utilize IMDb for character names, but I have seen all the movies I listed, except Allegheny Uprising. I find these fun, if I am familiar with the movies and actors, but I can understand it not being fun for some. Some of mine are longer because I want to make connections of actors/actresses and films with which I am familiar. Sometimes I make them long because it is fun :rolleyes: . The other thing I personally choose not to do is to include TV episodes, if I can help it.

      Paul Newman was in The Hustler with Piper Laurie (who played Sarah).

      Piper Laurie played Cathy in Louisa (1950) with Charles Coburn (who played Abel Burnside).

      Charles Coburn played Father Burke in Trouble Along the Way with John Wayne.
