Six Degrees of Separation Blogathon





Nostra over at My Film Views has another new blogathon! I think everyone's familiar with the 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon game. The theory that anyone can be connected to someone else in show biz in 6 steps or less. I was assigned Groucho Marx to Leonardo DiCaprio by Jenna and Ellie over at Flick Chicks. Here it goes!

Groucho Marx was in Skidoo with Mickey Rooney




Mickey Rooney was in The Muppets with Amy Adams

Amy Adams was in Catch Me if You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio



I'm passing this on to M. Brown over at Two Dollar Cinema Connect Leonardo DiCaprio to Shirley Temple!

  1. Skidoo? SKIDOO! I don't even know what that movie is, but I think I love it.

    Shirley Temple, you say? Mmm, that sounds good. I'll have that.

    Thanks for the pass, Brittani.

    1. Weirdly enough, I was just reading a book called 'My Year of Flops' that was talking about Skidoo. I had to laugh when I saw it was part of Marx's filmography.

  2. Man, this thing is spreading fast. Great connection. I had no idea such a direct route could be taken from Groucho to Leo.

    1. I know! It's kind of hard to keep track of how many people have already gotten this.

    1. Thanks, I had to do classic and modern, it seems a bit harder.

  4. Oh wow, I had no idea how quickly that would go. Here I was thinking that would be a challenge.

  5. Wow... I wouldn't have come up with that one. Especially as I haven't seen a lot of films with the Marx Brothers.

  6. Nice job Brittani! I'm not familiar w/ Groucho Marx at all so this is quite enlightening :D

    1. Ha, neither was I (Or Jenna and Allie when they passed this to me for that matter) Good to see we're not alone.

  7. Well done, Brittani! I had forgotten that (a very young) Amy Adams was in Catch Me If You Can.

    1. I'd love to see her and Leo in another film together again.

  8. Nicely done! I never would've guessed Marx and DiCaprio could be connected in just 3 degrees of separation.

No seriously, post one. I need attention.
