Does Anyone Else Smell Bacon?



If you've ever played Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, then you may want to check out the Oracle of Bacon. It is uncanny how many actors you can name and have them somehow lead to Kevin Bacon. The most distant I was able to find was three degrees.

Pretty cool. I call "foul" on one though: I said "Paul McCartney" and they said, "Paul McCartney was in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978) with Steve Martin. Steve Martin was in Novocaine (2001) with Kevin Bacon."

Paul McCarrtney was not in that piece of shit movie. The BeeGees and Peter Framton were. Only his music was in the film.

I am impressed though (even if it is just a program that finds links in the IMDB.com database. It found this:

Kyra Schon was in Night of the Living Dead (1968) with Debbie Rochon.
Debbie Rochon was in Terror Firmer (1999) with Theo Kogan.
Theo Kogan was in In the Cut (2003) with Kevin Bacon.

You of course know that Kyra Schon was the litle girl in NOTLD. It was her only acting role. It was the only acting role for most people in that movie, so finding a Kevin Bacon link is quite a feat!

Figuring out who has an ErdÅ‘s–Bacon number is the REAL challenge.
