1)What role was played by bothe Jo-Carrol Dennisson and Madonna?

2)By Madonna and Faye Dunnaway[*]?

3)By Faye Dunnaway and Kim Bassinger[**]?

4)By Kim Bassinger and Melissa George?

5)By Melissa George and Diana Barton?

6)By Diana Barton and Isabelle Huppert[**]?

[*] "Madonna and Faye Daunnaway played her" was a clue in an accrostic I was doing and that clue inspired this game.

[**] Question 6 and 3 both have a footnote for a reason. What is that reason?

A) By Jessica Lange and Beverley D'Angelo?[*]
B) By Beverley D'Angelo and Kim Hunter?[**]
C) By Kim Hunter and Helena Bonham Carter?[***]
D) By Helena Bonham Carter and Angela Lansbury?[****]

[*] Inspired by another accrostic. (This one is easy.)
[**]This one's even easier.
[***] This is either hard or easy depending on whether you are a big fan of one or both of these actresses.
Technically this isn't the same role but c'mon, it's really the same role. And it's utterly impossible to resist this role to link Kim Hunter to this ... unforgettable ... role of the usually divine Ms. Carter.
[****]This one is hard. Unless you follow the hint.
Connecting Helena Bonham Carter to Angela Lansbury is certainly irressitable if possible. Hint: Elsewhere on these boards I did a comparison of Goerge Hearn to Johnny Depp to Gene Wilder to Mathew Broderick in common roles. This link is very similar to one part of that link.

By Vivienne Leigh and Marge Simpson? (An easy one {if you are a Simpson Fan} and a Hint to an easy one above.)

By Marge Simpson and Jenny Mollen? (A preposterously hard one, even if you are a Simpsons fan. Think ... tree-house...)

Okay, maybe I'm being sleep deprived but:

By Marge Simpson, Eileen Herlie (twice!), and Glenn Close?


(One of my favorite Simpsons' bit!)
Hint in the same things, roles were shared by:

Lisa Simpson, Jean, Simmons, Linda Marsh, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Bart Simpson, Laurence Olivier, Richard Burton, and Mel Gibson.
Moe Sizlak, Basil Sydney, Alfred Drake, and Alan Bates.

I know Carter played Anne Boleyn once - did Lansbury, too, way back when? Either that or they share a Shakespeare role, though I don't think Lansbury did Twelfth Night. Oooh, they were both in Sweeney Todd! (Carter's hasn't come out yet...)

I think that was a hard one - I had to look it up. You've actually seen the short film The Raven (which gets a 1.1) on IMDB? Yowsa.

Yes! Very good! I guess I wasn't thinking of the Halloween story vignettes very much at the time I posted. (The Marge Simpson and Vivienne Leigh role is *not* a story vignette.) But by the time I posted the other Marge Simpson questions they became obvious. Marge as Lenore (portrait only) I thought was obscure as was the Jenny Mollen Raven.

Except on IMDB in the Tim Burten version her name is listed as "Ari" (????) Yep. Very good.

The Simpson's musical was "Stop the Planet of the Apes; I want to get Off". Dr. Zegas had a few lines but did we hear Dr. Zira say anything?

Yep! I'll give it to you. Mrs. Lovette in Sweeney Todd.

All from the same sources:

Yep.

Moe played Claudius in Bart Simpson's Hamlet (one of my favorite bits "Oh, great. Now Hamlet's acting funny. Well, No-Body out-crazies Ophelia! Hey-Nonny nonny, whoa, hey,... *splash*" And "So, I've put poison on the weapons, the cups, the food the drapes, and even on RosenCarl and GilderLenny" "If Hamlet touches either of us, he's a goner!" "BOOYEAH!" *high five each other and drop dead*)
Basil Sydney in Laurence Oliver's Hamlet, Alfred Drake in Richard Burton's Hamlet, and Alan Bates in Mel Gibson's Hamlet.

The other roles were obviously therefore, Gertrude, Hamlet, and Ophelia in the same sources. Special mention should go to Police Chief Wiggum as Polonius "I hid in the curtains because I have a fear of being stabbed".

Huh? How on earth did you get that? It's casually mentioned in one episode when Marge asks of a professional (rather than a school) production of Camelot, "Was that any good? Because to me Ralph Wiggum will alwasy be Sir Lancelot."

Good job!

Since you can do the hard ones try some of the easy ones.
