The BITS-PILANI QUIZZING FORUM!

Unbeatable.

Connect the three pictures. The person out of focus in the third picture is irrelevant to the connect.





The First picture a portrait of Prof. James Moriarty by Sidney Paget.
The second, is Alan Moore.
The third picture is one of Beat god Neal Cassady, who isn't some actor who played James Moriarty in some obscure film. Cassady inspired the character Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouc's book, On the Road.

According to Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier, Dean Moriarty appears in a story( a 'Sal Paradyse'), which suggests that he is the great-grandson of Professor James Moriarty. The story, incidentally, has Sal and him teaming up with Mina Murray and Alan Quatermain against a villain named Doctor Sachs(A play on another of Kerouac's characters, Dr.Sax).

No one gets this one. A couple of you posted the right wiki extract, but didnt get the connect.

The connect seems to be 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen'. The person in second pic is Alan Moore, the writer of the aforementioned comic. The first pic is an illustration of Moriarty by Sidney Paget. The person in third pic is Richard Roxburgh, the actor who played Moriarty in the movie.
