This is incorrect. Lila Lee passed away in 1973, so she could not have been in the 1989 film Blood and Sand with Sharon Stone. Lee was in the original 1922 Blood and Sand with Rudolph Valentino, so it appears Google has the two movies confused.
However, there is a legitimate way to use Lila Lee to link to Houdini to Kevin Bacon in 4 steps:
1. Harry Houdini and Lila Lee appeared in Terror Island.
2. Lila Lee and John Carradine appeared in The Emperor's New Clothes.
3. John Carradine and Jack Nicholson appeared in The Last Tycoon.
4. Jack Nicholson and Kevin Bacon appeared in A Few Good Men.
Back in 2012, iTricks reported that Houdini's Bacon number was 4 using actor Arthur Hoyt as the link. Joe Notaro at HHCE showed how you could also link in 4 steps through actor Tully Marshall. But I like using Lila. Houdini seems to like it too.

I'm not sure how one goes about correcting a Bacon number on Google. But I'd still like to find a way to do the link in 3 steps. Anyone care to try?
