Movie Trivia Answer 11/29

Well there is more than one path to Grandma's house!
Or to Kevin Bacon.

I think it's fun how everyone got from Alan Alda to Kevin Bacon via different routes.

Libby and Hubby first did it in 3 degrees (see the comments) but when I reminded them it was to be 5 actors between Alan Alda and Kevin Bacon, here's what they came up with (in an email back to me):

"From Me *s*

Alan Alda was in The Aviator with Cate Blanchett (1)
Cate Blanchett was in I'm Not There with Heath Ledger (2)
Heath Ledger was in Monster's Ball with Billy Bob Thornton (3)
Billy Bob Thornton was in Primary Colors with Kathy Bates (4)
Kathy Bates was in About Schmidt with Jack Nicholson (5)
Jack Nicholson was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon (6)

From Hubby

Alan Alda was in The Aviator with Cate Blanchett (1)
Cate Blanchett was in Bandits with Bruce Willis (2)
Bruce Willis was in Armageddon with Ben Affleck (3)
Ben Affleck was in Boiler Room with Giovanni Ribisi (4)
Giovanni Ribisi was Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks (5)
Tom Hanks was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon (6)

*ta da*"

Here's mine:

Alan Alda was in Murder at 1600 with
Dennis Miller who was in Disclosure with
Demi Moore who was The Butcher's Wife to
George Dzundza who was in No Way Out with
Will Patton who played in The Spitfire Grill with
Marcia Gay Harden who was in Mystic River with
Kevin Bacon.


New question on Saturday--and it'll be Christmas movies!

I have never been very good at that game so I am impressed with what everyone came up with!

I really have never figured out how in the world people do this. It is amazing to me that all 3 of you came up with something different. I was also very touched by your post about the child you are sponsering and her family. It is a wonderful thing you are doing.
