The film "Fathom" (made in the 60s)
is perhaps the nucleus of an ultimate six-degrees game.

Through cast and crew, the linkage is an extensive branching out network! (including links to Elvis)

Did`nt Raquel Welsh make her film debut in an Elvis film ? (Roustabout?)

Real stinker of a film that one, even the superb Richard Briers is awful.

Yeah, near the beginning, some students enter the 'tea house' and are cheeky to a waitress.

Welch's first [and last] line is:

"So how come it's called a tea house, dear ?"

She missed the Oscar nomination for a supporting actress by a whisker.
