Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.

Science Fiction. Some people love it, some people hate it. Even those who love it know that some stories are great and some... well... aren't.

The following movies represent some good and some not so good science fiction. But these movies were selected because of an interesting connection.

Cocoon
The Island of Dr Moreau
Meteor
Planet of the Apes

One star from each of these movies worked together on another, earlier, production. Can you find the name of that earlier production?



Answer

Jessica Tandy was one of the stars of Cocoon.
Marlon Brando, whose famous quote from On the Waterfront was the basis of the hint, starred in the 1996 remake of The Island of Doctor Moreau.
Kim Hunter starred as Zira in the 1968 version of The Planet of the Apes - and its sequels.
Karl Malden starred in Meteor.

These four actors were the original cast of Broadway's A Streetcar Named Desire.
