Still, Danson and Steenburgen, who met on the set of 1994's "Pontiac Moon," have kept working together. They again played estranged lovers last year in the TV movie, "It Must Be Love." In it, they're trapped in a snowstorm together, and, well, and you can probably guess the rest.
50 Years: Roy Rogers and Dale Evans
In 1944, when Dale Evans and Roy Rogers began working together, she was working on her third marriage and he had tied the knot twice. Two years later, she was divorced, he was widowed, and at a rodeo, he proposed. Thus began 50 years of "Happy Trails."
The King of the Cowboys and the Queen of the West rode together (he on Trigger, she on Buttermilk) through 27 films and two TV shows, recording more than 400 songs along the way.
Perhaps one secret to their longevity: No public displays of affection, at least onscreen. As he once famously said, "I get to kiss the horse."
That's not for everybody, but Trigger never complained.
