I wish they would explain some of these, like the last one for example.
I got it right but I am not sure how.

12 out of 15. I had to guess on most of these since I have only seen a few of the movies.

8/15 and lucky to get that.
Paul Langton, Barbara Parkins and Ryan O'Neil all appeared on the T.V. series Peyton Place.
What other T.V. series did all 3 appear in?
MrsPhilHarris LarryLeGros 2 months ago
Perry Mason probably. I think everyone was on it.

9/15. This is as much a test of movie knowledge as classic TV knowledge.

You got 14 out of 15
You're a true fan of TV stars. Nothing fishy about that!

14/15, missed the last one. They went DEEP into the cast of some of those movies for the connections.

12/15 -- Tough one! I guessed on a few that I got right.
MrBill 2 months ago
10/15; I had to guess a lot because I had not see a lot of these movies or could not remember who was in them.

6 out of 15. I don't watch very many movies.

I've got a tough one for you. See if you can guess the TV show from these movie clues:

Bye Bye Birdie, Grease, and The Ghost and Mr Chicken.
MrsPhilHarris SalIanni 2 months ago
Is it Bewitched?
Nope, BBB had Paul Lynde, but I don't think anyone else was in the other 2!
booster SalIanni 2 months ago
"The Love Boat"? Just about every actor and actress in the country was on that show at one time.
daDoctah cperrynaples 2 months ago
Bye Bye Birdie had Paul Lynde as you say, The Ghost and Mr Chicken had Dick Sargent (was trying to remember what else I saw Joan Staley in besides 77 Sunset Strip), and Grease had Alice Ghostley. I think we have a winner here.
SalIanni SalIanni 2 months ago
A couple of you got it right. The answer is Bewitched. The stars were Paul Lynde ("Bye Bye Birdie"), Alice Ghostley ("Grease") , and "The Ghost and Mr Chicken" had 2 of them: Dick Sargent and Sandra Gould (Gladys Kravitz #2).
MrsPhilHarris SalIanni 2 months ago
Yeah I got it!

11/15. Had to guess on a lot of them. Reading the posters didn't always help. Saw the Great Escape and immediately thought McQueen instead of Garner.

12/15, and had to guess. This was a really good quiz.

14/15! 2 questions I need to be answered: What TBV star was in "Beach Blanket Bingo" and which Maverick star was in "Forbidden Planet"? My first thought on the second was Jack Kelly, but I saw the movie on TCM and don't remember him!
teire cperrynaples 2 months ago
Turns out Jack Kelly was in Forbidden Planet. Linda Evans was in Beach Blanket Bingo. IMDB.
daDoctah teire 2 months ago
Speaking of Beach Blanket Bingo, here's another one for you: what MeTV show features stars of Beach Blanket Bingo, The Sound of Music, and She-Wolf of London?

And if you get that one, try: Tarzan and His Mate, The Outlaws Is Coming! and The Invisible Man Returns?
MrsPhilHarris daDoctah 2 months ago
I think the first is Lost In Space with June Lockhart in Shewolf and that blonde daughter in BBB. Couldn't figure out Sound Of Music unless you mixed up the Cartwright sisters. The other I'd Batman. Tarzan has Inspector Gordon, The Outlaws has Adam West & the invisible Man Returns has Vincent Price.
