Great list!

Also, director John Huston's children are both actors: Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston.

Thanks, Kathy.

Despite being sons of John Huston, both began their artistic careers in the late '60s. Consequently not added to the list. I have not checked yet Hayley Mills. The same happens with Kirk Douglas, Lloyd Bridges and others.

Oh, I see, Kandi. What is the cut-off year for being considered for this list?
Posted: 3 years, 9 months ago at Jul 18 15:02
It is very difficult to answer this question, Kathy. I asked this question to myself. I have not forgotten Anjelica Huston. I checked IMDB and got the answer. My list gives a general idea of the old actors of the same family. Most I already knew. Several of them have been suggested here on the site through a friend.
I thought of something around until the late 50s.
