It's going to be the three stooges followed by laurel and hardy.
Way down on those would be the cast of the carry on movies - I'm sure you can find 2 of them that we're in most of those films, probably Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtry.
Carry on wise Kenneth Williams was in 21 Carry on films with Charles Hawtrey and 21 with Joan Sims.

Only two suprisingly Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid and The Sting
That is a surprise. Jack Lemmon and Walter Mattau must have starred in a few films together?

Can't think of anything that comes close to Abbot and Costello, they must have it.

Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter have now appeared in a really alarming number of films together, they need to give it a rest for a while. Off the top of my head, they're both in:

- Alice in Wonderland
- Sweeney Todd
- Corpse Bride
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- Dark Shadows
- The Lone Ranger (this year)

And I'm sure I'm forgetting a few there.
You beat me to it on that one, but it must save Tim Burton a lot of time when casting. Is he even aware he can use different actors?

Burton-Depp-Bonham-Carter must hold the record for the threesome who have made the most films together.

Add in Danny Elfman, who's scored almost every Burton film, and it's without doubt the most common director-actors-composer team ever. It's getting really dull - it comes to something when Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows feel like the same movie.

Helena Bonham Carter is easily explained given he's married to her, but it's a bit weird that he makes his wife get off with Johnny Depp once a year. Maybe they've got an open relationship.

Given that they did three 90-minute-ish films per year, I'm definitely one of those people who wishes the modern-day Sherlock could be counted as movies. They're the same in every way but release.

Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce made me think of actors who played Charters and Caldicott (Naunton Wayne and Basil Radford), first appeared in The Lady Vanishes.

Turned out that they appeared in 12 films together. Not bad.

1. The Lady Vanishes (1938)
2. Night Train to Munich (1940)
3. Crook's Tour (1941)
4. The Next of Kin (1942)
5. Millions Like Us (1943)
6. Dead of Night (1945)
7. A Girl in a Million (1946)
8. Quartet (1948)
9. Passport to Pimlico (1949)
10. Helter Skelter (1949)
11. Not Cricket (1949)
12. Press Girl (1949)

It's just occurred to me that Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker appeared in all six Star Wars films together (the only actors to do so). They despise each other though. Still, it's possible they'll have reached 9 by the time the new trilogy's over, not counting the stand-alone ones.

Eric Barker and Richard Wattis seemed to have made dozens of films together but it was probably only about 6.
