Seven steps to Brighton...

Did you know the final episode of M*A*S*H was aired today in 1983? Apparently, it was the most watched television program in history.

Which got me thinking about Alan Alda, which for some bizarre reason, then got me thinking about that 7 seven steps to Kevin Bacon thing. You know – that process where you need to trace a connection between a Hollywood actor to Kevin Bacon in a maximum of seven steps.

So I thought, hmm, can I get from Alan Alda (in M*A*S*H) to a Brighton connection in 7 steps? Well, knock me down with a line from Suicide is Painless, I did:

  • Alan Alda was in What woman Want with Mel Gibson
  • Mel Gibson was in Lethal Weapon with Danny Glover
  • Danny Glover was in The Color Purple with Whoopi Goldberg
  • Whoopi Goldberg was in Girl Interrupted with Angelina Jolie
  • Angelina Jolie was in Tomb Raider with Daniel Craig
  • Daniel Craig was in The Power of One with Morgan Freeman
  • Morgan Freeman was in Driving Miss Daisy with Joan Plowright, who

    Lives in Brighton…!
I'm off to put my 'smart a***' pants on now...
