Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Tools    





^
That's actually seven degrees. (Six names, six degrees.) But yeah, I've been tempted to succumb to going one degree over as well!

Yossele Rosenblatt ...was in The Jazz Singer (1927) with Al Jolson.
Al Jolson was in Rhapsody in Blue with Alexis Smith.
Alexis Smith was in The Age of Innocence with Michelle Pfeiffer.
Michelle Pfeiffer was in mother! with Ed Harris.
Ed Harris was in The Lost Daughter with Paul Mescal.
Paul Mescal was in Aftersun with... Frankie Corio.

(Yeah, it can be solved, but according to what understanding of six versus seven degrees? Let me know if there actually is a way to shorten this by one degree...)

Moving on...

Ava Gardner and Addison Rae
