More Oz Connection

How about we play Oz Connection again!  Perhaps you recall our little game: It's kind of a three-way combination of Ozian lore, Trivial Pursuit, and a pop-culture quiz all rolled into a game approximating the party game called "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon." It's an amusing thing to do while driving to an Oz Con. It goes something like this:

One person says, "E. B. White," and then another player must try and link E. B. White to Oz as closely and quickly as possible. While there are probably MANY different routes, the first to pop into my head was: E. B White wrote Charlotte's Web. In the 1973 film version, the voice of the Goose was contributed by Agnes Moorehead, and she played Mombi in the Shirley Temple television production of The Land of Oz. You can check out our previous couple rounds by typing "Oz Connection" into our SEARCH window.

Post your answers in the blog's COMMENTS section - not on Facebook. Just click the "comments" link at the bottom of this post.

I will not publish or post any of the proposed Oz Connection answers until Friday morning. This will give everyone a chance to answer. Remember there is no single answer - there are many different ways you might connect these three to Oz. There is also no prize beyond the fact that it's a great way to show your own obsessive geekiness and superb cultural knowledge! Have fun!

Give me your best Oz Connection for the following three people:

Farrah Fawcett-Majors
Groucho Marx
