  • I did this almost three years ago and it went over pretty well, so I though I'd try this again. What I'd like you to do is figure out the connection with the stars that connect to John Wayne. We will stay with major stars and stay away from directors, uncredited players, writers, producers, and studios.

    Example:


    Connect: Steve Martin to John Wayne.


    Steve Martin was in Trains, Planes & Automobiles with John Candy
    John Candy was in Only The Lonely with Maureen O'Hara
    Maureen O'Hara was in McLintock! with John Wayne.


    There may be several ways to connect it, but you must connect the actor to a movie that another actor was in.


    Here is the first one.


    Connect Angelina Jolie to John Wayne


    I look forward to what you come up with.


    Cheers B)

    Michael J. Fox – Back to the Future to John Wayne – The Long Voyage Home



    read it here . . . .


    I confess, we were unable to come up with a connection between Ewan McGregor and John Wayne, but look forward to seeing what it is :rolleyes: .

    This is an easy, short one -

    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.

  • I didn't realize that this trival was that hard. I know Viper gets them but it seems that no one (except Chester and the Mrs.) can do these. I'll try myself in couple of days if no one is going to do this.
