Not a bad thing but seeing how short that was genuinely made me exclaim FUCK out loud. :)
Like I said before Caine is a key lynchpin to all movie history. Without him it would all fall in on itself.Him and John Hurt it seems.

A Hard Days Night starred George HArrison

Using IMDb is n't cheating in my book, especially if people keep choosing difficult routes.
 
For my own amusement: Batman: the Movie to The Dark Knight:
Batman: the Movie starred FRANK GORSHIN who was in
Twelve Monkeys with BRAD PITT who was in
Se7en with MORGAN FREEMAN who was in
The Dark Knight.

I think it's fun either way, but even if you use IMDB and prove how completely different films from different eras and countries can still connect, it's still quite fascinating (to me anyways).
