You've all heard the game "6 Degrees to Kevin Bacon", yeah? Basically, you name an actor, and see if the other guy/gal can string along relationships with other actors that have appeared in the same movie, and make it lead to Kevin Bacon in six degrees or less. Ug, it's best explained by example:

Ok, lessee... Burt Reynolds

ok...

1. Burt was in Striptease with Demi Moore
2. Demi Moore was in Destination Anywhere with Kevin Bacon!

Boy, uh, that was easy. But, unlike I just did, you cannot use a search engine to get your answers. :twisted: You must use your knowledge of film to get there.

So, let's give this a spin... see what we can do. In 6 degrees or less, can you link any actor to a movie containing a cephalopod or a reference to a cephalopod? I'll give a random try, let's see what you can do:

Meg Ryan!

Sweet! WK with the first response by a nose! But Clem did it in less steps... Well done!

WK, maybe it is 7 degrees... I may have got it mixed up with the old community site sixdegrees.com. :?

Next... Gene Wilder!

ummm this is kida weak, but its a try....

gene wilder - slim pickens - blazing saddles
slim pickens - 1941

in 1941 he gets dragged aboard a submarine, and submariners have been called 'squidies' before, although i dont believe the any cephs were directly mentioned

:(

:lol: A truly valiant effort, but as the person who threw out the actor name, I guess I am judge, and I'd have to say that unless they were called squiddies in the movie 1941, or they saw or referenced a ceph of some sort, then I'm not getting the connection.

That said, it's far better than I can do... I got nuthin.

oh, I'll try my own, but this is a real butcher's job:

1. Gene was in Young Frankenstein with Teri Garr
2. Teri was in Tootsie with Bill Murray
3. Bill Murray was in Stripes with John Candy
4. John Candy was in The Great Outdoors with Dan Akyroyd (sp?)
5. Dan Akyroyd was in Trading Places with Jamie Lee Curtis
6. Jamie Lee Curtis was in a Fish Called Wanda, which featured an octopus logo on the door of John Cleese's office at the beginning of the movie, for his company, Octopus, Inc.

...I think...
