What do Carol Burnett, Faye Dunaway and Patty Duke have in common?


They all won a Theatre World Award in 1959/60?



That may be true, but that isn't what I was looking for.

Okay, I'll give you a hint. Two of these women's stage works relate to what they have in common on film.

Hm... I never noticed that. But again, I wasn't referring to that.

Give up?

What if I say that Michael Caine will soon be included in that list?

(Forgot about that one - sorry!)

Guessing wildly here: is it that they've all reprised roles they've done before? Or appeared in remakes of films they were in the originals of ... [terribly sentence, but ya know wot I mean]

No.

There you go!

Carol Burnett was in two different film versions of Once Upon a Matress - in the first one she played Princess Winifred the Woebegone, and in the second one she played Queen Aggravain.

Patty Duke played Helen Keller in the first version of The Miracle Worker and then took on the part of Anne Sullivan in the second one.

Faye Dunaway played the investigator Vicki Anderson in the first Thomas Crown Affair and then played Crown's psychiatrist in the second one.

Finally, Michael Caine played Milo Tindle in the first Sleuth film, and will soon be playing the part of Andrew Wyke in the 2008 version.

Pretty interesting, no? Anyone know of any others like this?

(By the way, I believe the theatre awards in 1959-60 you mentioned were only for Patty and Carol and were for these same original stage roles - but Faye wasn't on that list for that year. Come to think of it, did she ever do any stage work back then?)

Nice one, CL! Nope, dunno any others.
Oh yeah -- Dunaway's Theatre World Award was in 1965 for Hogan's Goat -- so all three did actually win it! As to her stage career, I quote here from Yahoo's Movie Bios:

quote:
Following her 1962 graduation, Dunaway faced a choice most young actresses could only dream about: a Fulbright scholarship to study at LAMDA or a guaranteed acting job as a member of the American National Theatre and Academy (ANTA) in its production of "A Man for All Seasons". She chose the latter has never looked back.

For two years, Dunaway honed her craft onstage in various ANTA productions before earning attention as the doomed Kathleen Stanton in William Alfred's "Hogan's Goat" in 1965. (Each performance required her to fall down a flight of stairs to her death which enthralled audiences.) It was only a matter of time before the big screen beckoned.


PS LAMDA is a famous theatre school in London - London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.

**************
NEW TRIVIA
There's a famous superstar who grew up in the midwest in an alcoholic family; his older sister actually appeared onstage before him and outlived him after a long film career sadly marred by her own alcoholism. She literally exploded in a scene from a Fritz Lang film. Back in the midwest the family were close to another who would produce three superstars in father, daughter and son, plus several filmstar children. Who are all these people?

I'll hold off with an answer just in case ...
