Ok. All the actors in a) have appeared in well known adaptations of novels by Vladamir Nabokov and in b) in adaptations of novels by Franz Kafka.

Jeremy Irons (a notable Humbert Humbert) played Kafka in the same titled film of 1991 and Christopher Plummer played Nabokov in 1991's... "Nabokov on Kafka" - basically the final link in this literary brain burner.

What is the cinematic connection - or perhaps non-connection? - between James Woods, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner?? And how does Costner relate to the following motley collection: Henry Fonda, Patrick Dempsey, William Petersen, Martin Sheen, Paul Rudd, Tim Matheson?

My guess for the second half of that question is that all have portrayed a Kennedy. I know Dempsey and Sheen played JFK for telefilms, and Petersen played his pop, Joe, for another telefilm. . . . and while I'm at it, Costner appeared in "Thirteen Days as a Kennedy confidante. Right track, or wild string o' coincidences?

correct... Ford, Gibson and Woods turned down or were considered for the role of Jim Garrison in JFK, the role that eventually went to Costner...and the connection from him to all the others is Kennedy: they all played Kennedy in various movies and TV movies.

Sorry I've been away so long, gang. Truth is, I've had so many reviews rejected for (in my opinion) minute and silly reasons, I've sort of "retired." Thanks to Beanmimo for reminding me it was my turn!

What do the following films have in common?

Staying Alive (1983)
Strangers On A Train (1951)
Alexander (2004)
Scotland, PA (2001)
A Bridge Too Far (1977)
Run Fatboy Run (2007)

Beanie, that has to be a joke, right? Tennis is only mentioned in one of these.

OK here's a stretch, the directors of four all have uncredited appearances in the movies as far as IMBD is concrened, do you know something about Alexander and Run fatboy run that it doesn't!!

That's it, Beanie!!!! Each film's director can be spotted in a scene, thusly:

Staying Alive (1983) -- Star John Travolta bumps into director Sylvester Stallone during street scene.
Strangers On A Train (1951) -- Alfred Hitchcock is shown struggling to get an old-style musical bass onto the train.
Alexander (2004) -- Oliver Stone is quickly shown looking up at a statue.
Scotland, PA (2001) -- Billy Morrisette is seen walking his (real-life) dog and waving at the star.
A Bridge Too Far (1977) -- Richard Attenborough plays one of the escaped lunatics in the forest.
Run Fatboy Run (2007) -- David Schwimmer is seen passing the star a cup of water.

Great job (with a mini-cheat assist lol)! You're up!

At least I'm a barefaced cheater and not one of those sneaky ones...

Anyway, high time I got a question together.

What links Pretty in Pink to Casablanca in the same way Death Wish 2 is linked to The Fugitive?
