Entertainment Trivia For 05/03/06

Correlate these two people: Ida Lupino, Otto Preminger. And the answer isn't an actor, director, or other crew member with whom they both have worked (of which there are many).

Hint #1: Opera

Hint #2: Family Guy: Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows

The Answer! They both directed take-offs on Georges Bizet's opera Carmen. For Preminger, it was the cinema classic Carmen Jones, starring the lovely Dorothy Dandridge. For Lupino, it was the TV classic, Gilligan's Island: The Producer, guest starring Phil Silvers.
