George Clooney- Son of Nick Clooney (introduced films on the AMC Channel) and nephew of Rosemary Clooney, a famous pop singer of the '50's.

Jamie Lee Curtis- Daughter of Janet Leigh (the gal from the stabbing scene in "Psycho") and Tony Curtis, a star from the 50's whom you would never recognize if you knew him "when".

Carrie Fisher- Daughter of Debbie Reynolds (who is still working) and Eddie Fisher, before Fisher ran off with Elizabeth Taylor.

Drew Barrymore- Granddaughter of John, and niece of Ethel, two of the most famous stars of yesteryear.

Michael Douglas- Son of Kirk Douglas, star of "Champion" and innumerable other blockbusters.

Anyone else know of any contemporary stars who were related to stars of an earlier era?

@Phoenix32890,
My word, Phoenix. I know every one of those folks, but the only one that I can think of at the moment is Hank Williams and Hank Williams, Jr. (just got through playing Sr. on the radio thread)

Paris Hilton...............Not a star, but she is the grand-neice of Conrad "Nicky" Hilton, who was (very briefly) married to Elizabeth Taylor. His half-sister's mother was Zsa Zsa Gabor, so maybe some of Paris' behavior is genetic! :-)

For those who don't know, she's the Hilton of the Hilton hotel chain.

I can't believe that nobody has yet mentioned Jane Fonda and Peter Fonda, offspring of Henry Fonda, a superstar in the 1940s, '50s and '60s. That came to mind immediately.

Anyone mention Michael Douglas yet? Son of Kirk Douglas?

Angelica Houston.
