Author Comments: 

Yes, the above actors did appear in a film together. To keep things from getting too obscure I have only chosen movies which rated 7 or better on IMDB. Also I took steps to ensure that both actors were in the top 6 actors listed in the credits. This last bit implies no uncredited appearances as well.

Have Fun!

A few of these I need to think on...

2 - The Fugitive
3 - O Brother Where Art Thou
7 - The Deer Hunter
11 - The Opposite of Sex
13 - Requiem for a Dream
14 - As Good As It Gets
15 - Diner
16 - Ragtime ? (I just know it is one of the later films to star Cagney, so I'm guessing here...)
18 - Oh, I'll guess Angel Heart, though I've never seen it...

Shalom, y'all!

8. Network
12.Quiz Show

2 points for JBlack!

All correct except for 15 and 18! 7 points for you!

Is 19 The Big Easy?


001: TOP SECRET, a very funny send-up of WW2 movies. Sight-gags galore (I'll never forget the shattered German soldier, nor Peter Cushing's big eye).

1 Point, Thanks, Bertie!

005. is Diner not 15.
015. Is I think Breaking Away..a nice little movie.

2 Points, Thanks!

#22.Carnal Knowledge A geat movie.

Actually I was thinking of a different film but that one is good as well.!

009 is "Mallrats" Great list!

You are correct! Sorry it took me so long to respond. :-)

#32 is Wonder Boys, I believe

Good Job!

Is 19 DOA?


Great Guess! But unfortunately, no.

#21 is The Onion Field
#30 is MASH - one of the all-time funniest films
#4 is A Little Romance, which I believe was Diane Lane's film debut
#31 is The Player
#29 is Jackie Brown

Am I right???

Hey, Buck! You are correct on 4 (finally!), 21, 29, 30, 31. You get five points! :-)

okay, lisa bonet and jon voight - enemy of the state, right?

Yeppers! One point for you...

another aidan quinn/jeremy irons - dead ringers?

Nope, but very good quess.

Can I play again???

Okay, here goes!
33 is "Places in the Heart", which won Sally Field the Oscar for Best Actress (where, upon winning, she uttered the memorable line 'You like me, you really like me!')
36 is "The Getaway" - the original, not the awful remake
39 is "Atlantic City"
40 is "Thief"

dgeiser13, I think you missed this post.

You're correct. I have reattributed and scored accordingly. Thanks, AJ.

So did I. Whoops!

Shalom, y'all!

Kim Basinger and Jack Nicholson appeared together in the original Batman.
Russel Crowe and Danny Devito were both in L.A. Confidential.

Good job, AAA! :-)

Scott Glenn and Kathleen Turner appear together in Virgin Suicides.

My brother, Chris, gets one right!

Also, Danny Glover and John Malkovich both appeared in Places in the Heart. I think this was the movie which Sally Field made her "you like me. you really like me." speech.

And another...

Sorry, Chris. I had to take one away because someone had answered this already.

This is a really cool list! I think I'll have to clone this.

William Hurt and Kiefer Sutherland were in "Dark City" (1998) together

Lucille Ball and Katharine Hepburn were in "Stage Door" (1937) together

Kirk Douglas and Robert Mitchum were in "Out of the Past" (1947) together

3 for you AJ!

37. The Getaway
40. Atlantic City
44. Nobody's Fool
45. Glory
46. Much Ado About Nothing
48. The Game

Shalom, y'all!

You got them alright, Bangsie. But, unfortunately someone had answered for 37 already and I had failed to notice. 5 points for you!

ok, I know this one, from a viewing in Anthropology 205:

36. The Mission


Judy Garland and Spencer Tracy were both in "Judgment at Nuremberg", which, ironically enough, I put on my own Weird Actor Pairings list using two different actors, not realizing until tonight that "Judgment at Nuremberg" was an answer on your list as well.

Also, is the Hackman / Farrow collaboration a Woody Allen movie?

Right on Nuremberg. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Also, the Hackman / Farrow collaboration is a Woody Allen movie.

Hmm. Is it Hannah and Her Sisters?

Adrien and Keanu is: The Last Time I Committed Suicide, but I haven't watched it yet, and only know about it because of my Brody obsession.
Angelina Jolie and Sean Connery is; Playing by Heart, another I haven't seen. Ha ha.

I want to say Michael Caine and Ewan Macgregor is Little Voice, yet another movie I haven't seen. It seems to me this is the case, because I can't remember Caine being in any of the considerable Macgregor movies I've seen.

Yes to all three. Good job!

Dennis Quaid and Barbara Hershey were in The Right Stuff. Is that right? I think it is. Umm...and Mia Farrow and Gene Hackman were in a Woody Allen movie called Another Woman. Michael Caine and Benny Hill were in the original Italian Job.

10. Last Time I Committed Suicide
29. Children's Hour

Both correct but someone else got #10 first. Good job!

Yes to all three. Good job!

24. is 'The Italian Job' (1968?, not 2003!).

Good job but someone else guessed it first! Sorry!
