Does anyone remember that game show "Degrees of Separation", where you had to link people together by a certain number of degrees? Well, my mom is always playing that, saying "I've met this actress, and she's worked with this actor, so I'm connected to that actor!" Well, I found out today that my great grandfather on my mother's side used to hang out with Eddie Fisher, who was in "All About Eve" with Bette Davis, and Bette Davis was in "Now, Voyager" with Claude Rains. So that's 4 degrees!

Anyone else wanna give the game a try?

My sister plays a variation of this game...however, the only celebrity my family's ever been connected with is Colonel Sanders. :^\

Hmmm...I once knew a girl whose grandmother knew Jack Haley.... ::thinks::

Well, and my mother's family's supposed to be descended from Sir Francis Drake, but it's just a rumor.

I was just doing this the other day. I can pretty much connect myself to anyone -- or at least all of my favorite actors.

My grandmother's first cousin was Gregory Peck. He was in Spellbound with Ingrid Bergman, who was in Casablanca with Claude Rains. Four degrees for me too!
