Identify and Connect

I was planning to use this in the Moksha AV Quiz, but it was too easy for an open quiz.This is a very stripped down version of the connect. As a result, some connections are vague.

1.
Hint - Shady Actress. Famous relative. Identify the relative.

Additional Info -
"For his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in A(not relevant to connect) and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style."

2. Movie trivia - In the movie, 'The Shawshank Redemption' , when Warden Norton opens the bible where Andy Dufresne hid his rock pick, it opens to the Book of X.

3. Movie trivia - As a publicity stunt for this film, Cecil B. DeMille had public displays and monuments of the X erected around the country. Known as decalogues, most of them were placed in or near government buildings.

4.


5.

Jaideep Jagannathan said...

@abhiram - 1 and 2 both correct.
@rohan - 4 is correct.
@roshan - no.

Jaideep Jagannathan said...

The 5 original clues -
1. Ernest Hemingway. The pic is of Mariel Hemingway, his granddaughter, the text is his Nobel Prize citation. One of his works is the clue.
2. Exodus
3. The movie The Ten Commandments which among other things depicts the plagues inflicted on the egyptians.
4. Neil Gaiman - creater of The Sandman.
5. The Gadsden Flag. The blanked out slogan is the clue.

There are enough hints here. I have also added an additional clue, which should make the connect obvious.
