Joan Fontaine's sister (both Oscar winners). Jon Voight's daughter (ditto). John Huston's father or daughter (ditto). John Ford's brother. Michael Douglas' father. Two of the Baldwin brothers. Any of the Barrymore clan. Dana Andrews' brother (impossibly difficult).

Actually, Joan Fontaine's sister and some members of Barrymore clan were in the original version, among some others questions that were removed. This is edited by administrator. When I got a notification that it will be featured today, it also said "...I removed a few of the less-guessed answers."

Wait, Olivia de Havilland was removed? Because she wasn't guessed as frequently? Maybe it's GOOD that she was on here. That way all of the people that failed to guess her would then....heaven forbid...learn the name of a great actress. *sigh*

Sad to me that less than a third knew Ingrid Bergman. What a great actress she was - three Oscars, two Emmys, and a Tony award.

I read Joan as John... and then couldn't think of a famous brother of those two and was wondering why you didn't just ask for the sister Joan. Whoops.

On the Arquette one, Alexis should be accepted. She had been trans for years before death.

Sean Penn also has a brother Michael that is an actor.

Michael is not an actor of any note – he's a singer-songwriter. Gen Xers will recognize his big hit “No Myth” (“…what if I were Romeo in black jeans…”) and also “This & That” a year later. He’s now a very respected film & TV composer. He’s been married for over 20 years to Aimee Mann (of ‘Til Tuesday fame, followed by an outstanding solo career), and together they formed a recording collective that allows artists to retain all their own copyrights – a principle they are passionate about.

I’d never heard of Chris Penn before this quiz, and while maybe he would have had a bigger career if not for his untimely death, I think that Michael’s accomplishments certainly makes him deserving to be accepted as valid answer in this quiz. Whadda ya say? :-D

With all the terrible spellings that are always accepted on Jetpunk, it's a little silly to not accept "Hedron" for "Hedren". I mean, I figured it out, but come on!
