Longest time between SEQUELS?

Off the top of your head, which movie franchise has had the longest amount of time between sequels?

I'll start:

I think

Last Picture Show (1971) --> Texasville (1990) = 19 years


Any others?

Gone with the Wind (1939)
Scarlett (1994)

55 years.

Spoiler:
Ok, Scarlett was a miniseries for TV but it was still a sequel of sorts

There was a sequel to Birth of a Nation made in 1917. It's lost, though.

My money is on Blues Brothers and Blues Brothers 2000. That's 18 years for a legitimate sequel.

All these sequels are blasphemies!

What about a sequel from the same production team? I don't think the same people who did The Wizard of Oz were involved with Return to Oz. Except for Paul Newman and the novel basis connection, I don't think The Hustler and The Color of Money have any mutual production artists. Hmm...
