New Game. . . 'The Seven Degrees of Sherlock Holmes'.

OK, I'm going to start a new game. This is the first day, and as far as I know, the first time it has ever been played. So until we find out otherwise, if you like it, give me credit.

The new game; - 'The Seven degrees of Sherlock Holmes'.

No this is not an attempt to find out how much college education Sherlock Holmes has, that pursuit is for more scholarly Sherlockians than I.

This game is about picking an actor/actress and see if we can get to some connection to Sherlock Holmes in seven steps or less.

OK, just for fun I started with Rock Hudson.
Very popular when I was growing up.

OK, Rock Hudson was in a movie called 

Which also starred Yvonne De Carlo 

Who starred in 

Which also starred John Carrindine 

Who was in the 1939 'Hound' with Basil Rathbone 
Hey! Desert Hawk also starred Richard Greene, which actually makes the connection even shorter.

Of course we also have the Charlton Heston connection to Sherlock.

See how it works?

Wow, this is going to be fun.

And with such a big film like The Ten Commandments, there are probably lots of Sherlockian connections to be found

Give it a try, and tell me your results.
If I remember, I will try a new one each Tuesday.

Have fun.


  1. Such a game would be a bit beyond me and my knowledge of Holmes movies, old movies and IMDB skills. Scott Monty and Burt Wolder on Episode 49: I'll Have a Blue Christmas of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere play a version of your game: Six Degrees of Frank Middlemass--he was in both the Cushing and Brett "Blue Carbuncle" and "Young Sherlock Holmes". I'm sure B2B will do very well with your challenge.
