October 31st is a special day for the Adams family, because it is the birthday of both daughter Danielle and her mother Nicole.

This year Danielle turns 18, and her father, Doug Adams, has organized a week-long film festival as a special birthday gift for her, and his wife. (We won't mention how old Nicole is, but she certainly doesn't look old enough to have an 18 year old daughter!) Each night will feature a pair of movies with a special theme.

The festival will begin, aptly enough, with the movies Psycho and Halloween.

The other 12 movies in the festival are listed below. Can you determine the theme and correctly match the pairs of movies that will be shown?

Almost Famous
The Birds
Man, Woman and Child
Private Benjamin
Shakespeare in Love
Star Wars
The Wizard of Oz
Working Girl
The Unsinkable Molly Brown

Note: It isn't necessary to determine on which nights the movies play.


The theme of the film festival is that the stars of the two movies are mother and daughter.

Janet Leigh starred in the 1960 Hitchcock classic Psycho, and her daughter Jamie Lee Curtis starred in 1978's horror classic Halloween.

The other mother/daughter pairings are:

Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz
Liza Minnelli in Cabaret

Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca
Isabella Rossellini in Fearless

Goldie Hawn in Private Benjamin
Kate Hudson in Almost Famous

Blythe Danner in Man, Woman and Child
Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love

Tippi Hedren in The Birds
Melanie Griffith in Working Girl

Debbie Reynolds in The Unsinkable Molly Brown
Carrie Fisher in Star Wars

An illustrious group of mother-daughter actresses! Very nice teaser.

Excellent teaser! I didn't get any of them right, but I gave it a good, long try! Nice job! Into my faves.

Very well done. All good choices and for the most part good movies. It fact, I'll nuke some corn, and grab one of those DVD now.

The mother/daughter theme was obvious from the back story and the first two films both starring JLC.
Simple to figure, but obvious care was taken in putting it together. Very entertaining.

I Liked that a LOT and I sadly did not solve it.

Definately extremely hard...since I don't nearly know any actresses... let alone in which movies they played and who they are related to!
