How are these characters better known or connect them to the films in which they appear.


1) John Clayton = Tarzan aka Lord Greystoke

2) Arthur Bach = Dudley Moore as Arthur

3) Henry Jones = could this be Indiana?

4) Eva Peron - ???

5) Rose DeWitt Bukater = some iceberg chick called Winslett

6) Richard Blane - doesn't he run Rick's Cafe in northern Africa during WWII?







So far so good!!

One more to go.

Of course I considered that ... just couldn't believe it would be something that obvious!

But -- assuming it's right, how's about you taking the next round ... I'm actually trying to get some work done, and keep skyving off here

[if that's ok with Beanie!]

OK, here's a silly one.

James Caan turned down Popeye Doyle. Both Caan & Hackman were considered for the lead in Close Encounters of the Third Kind AND both were reported to turn down the lead in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

I didn't know that; that's not who I was thinking of; I'll be more specific. The actor who turned down Popeye Doyle later acted in a film with Hackman.
