Ok, how about an animated one: LotR to Toy Story?

I'm a bit new to this but didn't Walt Disney produce Toy Story and POTC, if so

Toy Story->Disney->POTC->Orlando Bloom->LOTR

Not to sure if thats good enough but it's a first try.

I found another one for Toy Story:
Toy Story > Tom Hanks > Radio Flyer > Elijah Wood > LotR

I think that Toy Story was a bit tricky so here's another animated one: the Beauty and the Beast (and don't use Disney this time )

Yes...I'm afraid the rule is only cast and crew, not production companies or anything else.

White Tree challenge: mission impossible

Try connecting Tarkovsky's Stalker to LOTR. Go on, try, I dare you.

Pipe OK, I dare ...

Actually, I found Beauty and the Beast quite a difficult one, and had to resort to Christopher Lee:


Quote:
Beauty and the Beast -> Angela Lansbury -> The Last Unicorn -> Christopher Lee -> LotR
As for your challenge, Evisse, how about:


Quote:
The Stalker -> Aleksandr Kajdanovsky -> Bvs vadsz -> Sadie Frost -> Bent -> Ian McKellen -> LotR
or even:


Quote:
The Stalker -> Aleksandr Kajdanovsky -> Bvs vadsz -> Sadie Frost -> Shopping -> Sean Bean -> LotR


Edit: And, for another challenge, how about Ingmar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander?

Pipe Or you could stick to the rules of the game ...

... and do it like this:


Quote:
The Shining -> Shelley Duvall -> Time Bandits -> Ian Holm -> LotR


As for Pocahontas, how about:


Quote:
Pocahontas -> Mel Gibson -> Mad Max 2 -> Bruce Spence -> LotR
Or, if we are excluding actors who aren't in the theatrical releases of the LotR films (Bruce Spence plays the Mouth of Sauron), then there's:


Quote:
Pocahontas -> Christian Bale -> Equilibrium -> Sean Bean -> LotR
Now, anyone care to have a go at Fanny and Alexander?

I think that Bekah did narrow it down to cast and crew. But anyway, it was not meant as a reproach, Lammoth.

And congatulations for solving Fanny and Alexander in only 6 moves. Very impressive.

Next up: Un Chien Andalou.

Un Chien Andalou

Ok, I'll bite:
(turns out it was easier than I thought, just like my previous challenge!)
Salvador Dali -->Father of the Bride(designer for this one, believe it or not) -->Elizabeth Taylor -->Peter O'Toole (Under Milk Wood) -->Sean Bean or Orlando Bloom (take your pick )
or if you consider Troy not yet released (but still very soon to come):
Liz Taylor -->Paul Newman -->Kevin Costner (Message in a bottle)-->Elijah Wood (The War).

Boots Wagner and the Oscars

Well done Evisse.

But, if soundtracks are allowed, this is quicker:


Quote:
Un Chien Andalou -> Wagner's Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde -> 76th Annual Academy Awards -> LotR
The music was both the score for Un Chien Andalou and the Katharine Hepburn Memorial at this years's Oscars, at which RotK cleaned up.

Ah yes, Saucepan, you win with Metropolis, but Bekah, even if you had gotten to Al Pacino the same way, you could have skipped two steps and gone straight to Johnny Depp and POTC by using Donnie Brasco.

Da-da-da-daaaa! for JD fans.

Great thread, very enjoyable to follow...but hold on a second.
Quote:

Christopher Lee is in the Last Unicorn? As what?! Or who actually. I'm so ignorant of my own favourite movies. Only recently have I actually started to pay attention to the people who are in them.

Oh, and I wonder how LOTR will link to "12 Angry Men"

Hi everyone, I thought I'd bump this thread up and see if anyone would like to have another go at this. There's a movie link that no one solved...

I know you're not supposed to bump threads, but it's been four years (and about two since I even visited Barrowdowns briefly).

Wow, coincidence! I was seriously just browsing this thread earlier and wondering if I could maybe... bump it. Go Bekah!
So now I'll jump back in.

"12 Angry Men" Peter Fonda -> "On Golden Pond" Katharine Hepburn -> "The Lion in Winter" Timothy Dalton -> "Scarlett" Sean Bean

Haha. You knew I'd work in the Bean somehow.
What about 10th Kingdom, that venerable Hallmark series?

Well, I started this thread. I wanted to see how it was getting along. Not very well, it seems. But maybe there'll be new interest in it.

The photo in my avatar is now about five years out of date, but I can't remember how to fix it and there aren't any pictures on the computer I'm using anyway. Oh well.

Anyway. Tenth Kingdom.

Kimberly Williams (or Williams-Paisley) played Virginia Lewis in 10th Kingdom --> played Annie Banks in Father of the Bride with Martin Short (the wedding planner) --> who also played in Merlin as Frick, along with Helena Bonham Carter (Morgan LeFay) --> who then played with Johnny Depp in Sweeny Todd --> (you can see where this is going now) who played alongside Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribbean. And Orlando Bloom, obviously, is Legolas.

OR...Martin Short also played with Jason Done (Mordred) in Merlin, who then played with Juliette Binoche in The English Patient, who played with Johnny Depp in Chocolat - but that takes it one step further and the object of the game is to do it in as few steps as possible...

I've found a quicker one now. Dianne Wiest plays the Wicked Queen in 10th Kingdom, but earlier played Peg in Edward Scissorhands which starred Johnny Depp (again). And Johnny Depp was in POTC with Orlando Bloom.

So that's one two three steps. Yay, go me.
