In fact the only requirement to make these kinds of connections is to have a sufficient body of film knowledge to make seemingly unconnected themes or actors connect. With sufficient knowledge, one can connect sets of films and actors using this linking system.

In this case, I have chosen JK Simmons at the beginning of the unique cinema connection and Susan Kohner at the end. Actually they never appeared in anything together. Their careers have no time crossover. Finally their appearance themes are unrelated. But in spite of these factors, they can be connected by following a set of unique cinema links.

But through a series of cleverly selected links the former connected to the latter in some terrific movies over a period of about seven decades. This is the story of unique cinema connections.
