Re: 6 Degrees of William Shatner

I haven't looked for a connection, but Denver has been in:

Back To The Beach (A guilty pleasure of mine.)
Did You Hear the One About the Traveling Saleslady?
The Sweet Ride
Who's Minding The Mint?
For Those Who Think Young
Take Her, She's Mine
A Private's Affair


At least one of those movies has a big name star. And yes I had to go to IMDb to find that list, I knew only Back To The Beach. Except for BttB all those movies were before Gilligan's Island. Type casting is a real bitch.

Haven't seen that since it was on CBS when I was maybe 16, around 1976. Jacqueline Bisset AND Michelle Carey! Geezus, talk about something that needs to be on blu-ray.

To make this post slightly treklike I should point out that Warren Stevens and Percy Rodriguez and Michael Forest and Charles Dirkop are all in the movie as well. And if you count DS9 and TNG as trek, there's michael sarazzin and seymour cassel too.
