5/31 crew: Prince Rainier III of Monaco was famously wed to Grace Kelly, who starred in High Noon, whose theme song was sung by Tex Ritter, father of John.
Menahem Golan, Israeli schlockmeister, numbered amongst his "classics" Deadly Heroes, featuring Billy Drago, who was much-beloved as Barbas, the Fear Demon on Charmed, but probably best-known as Frank Nitti in The Untouchables, where he, uh, made an impression on Oscar Wallace, played by Charles Martin Smith, the director of Welcome to the Hellmouth.
The RMS Titanic was launched from Belfast on May 31, 1911. (Hey, it had 10 good months, right?). Titanic featured David Warner as an evil valet, and Warner was in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country with Kim Cattrall, who was on Sex and the City with Chris Noth, who was on The Good Wife with Matt Czuchry, who made it through the pilot episode of Jake 2.0 as the best friend of title character Christopher "James Stanley" Gorham…before new show runner David Greenwalt took over with episode 2, decided Gorham didn't need a best friend, and sent Czuchry's character to Alaska, off-screen, never to be seen again.
Or we could connect Star Trek VI: Enough with the Shakespeare Quotes! to IOHEFY by noting the cameo of Iman (who also had an off-screen one-nighter with Chris Noth's Mike Logan in an episode of Law & Order, but I digress…), who later married David Bowie, who had been in Legend with Mia Sara, who was in Ferris Bueller's Day Off with Alan Ruck, who was in Speed with Keanu Reeves, who was in at least one of those awful John Wick movies with Ian MacShayne, who of course was on Deadwood with our own John "George the Janitor" Hawkes
Or we could mention that Warner was in Time After Time, playing Jack the Ripper to Malcolm McDowell's H.G.Wells, and that McDowell had been in A Clockwork Orange (infamous Fringedwellers quote about Spike, wrt the Sodding™ Chip: "Oh, no! They've chocolate-oranged him!"), where McDowell is, ahem, unkind whilst singing "Singin' in the Rain", which was of course from Singin' in the Rain, starring Debbie Reynolds, grandmother to Billie Lourd, who was in Scream Queens with Lea Michele, who was on Glee with Dianna Agron, who was in Bare where there's…a certain scene with Dianna and Paz de la Huerta in a car that rather explains how Dianna was the subject of All Those Songs by Taylor Swift (when TS sings "I'll do anything you want, if you say it with your hands" in "Treacherous", she's not praising Dianna's facility with American Sign Language, I don't think…) and Taylor was in The Hannah Montana Movie with Miley Cyrus, who in 2011 made a trip to the North Carolina filming of The Hunger Games to see future husband Liam Hemsworth, but (allegedly, but alleged in print) spent some time getting…close to star Jennifer Lawrence, who of course had just been in Winter's Bone with that same Academy Award-nominated John Hawkes.
(What, you don't like random lesbian hook-up rumors as connections? Fine, Miley was in LOL with Demi Moore, who got her start on General Hospital playing sister to Janine Turner, who was in Cliffhanger with Sylvester Stallone, who was in Creed with Michael B. Jordan, who was in Fantastic Four but not the Fantastic Four movies that starred Jessica Alba, who was in Idle Hands with Seth Green. Happy now?)
(What, you don't want ANY salacious rumors? FINE. Billie Lourd was in Billionaire Boys Club with Ansel Elgort, who is not actually the same person as Miles Teller but was in Insurgent with him, and Teller was in Fantastic Four with Michael B. Jordan…and that's still the wrong Fantastic Four flick, so…oh, hell, back all the way up…
…the missing link between Debbie Reynolds and Billie Lourd is of course Carrie Fisher, who was in four Star Wars movies with Harrison Ford, who was in The Conversation with Cindy Williams [the title refers to surveillance expert Gene Hackman eavesdropping on Ford and Williams's oblique dialogue], who was the other half of Laverne & Shirley with Penny Marshall, who was on The Odd Couple with Tony Randall, who was in Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson, who was in Giant with Elizabeth Taylor, who was in Cleopatra with Martin Landau, father of Juliet. There you go! Sheesh!)
(I suppose I could have saved a lot of trouble just by noting that Sex and the City also featured Willie "Fear is for the Weak" Garson, huh? Oh, well…)
Jim Hutton was the father of Timothy, who co-starred in Leverage with Aldis "Kid in a Demon Mask" Hodge. (And Christian Kane.) Or you could point out that Jim was in Walk, Don't Run with Cary Grant, who was in North by Northwest having a very rough time with that same Martin Landau…but if you disdain Jim/Timothy Hutton as only a parental link, you won't like Martin/Juliet either, so…North by Northwest also features Eva Marie Saint, who was recurring on Moonlighting, as was Curtis Armstrong, who was in Revenge of the Nerds with Anthony Edwards, who was on E.R. with guest stars such as Chad Lindberg and Clea DuVall (who played a couple). (Or, if you don't like guest stars, either, E.R. also starred Julianna Margulies, who starred in The Good Wife with Matt Czuchry, who was on Gilmore Girls with Danny Strong, okay?)
More later; I have to de-bug this "dread machine". Oh, and Happy Birthday!
