10. “What gift do you think a good servant has that separates them from the others? It’s the gift of anticipation. And I'm a good servant; I'm better than good, I'm the best; I'm the perfect servant. I know when they'll be hungry, and the food is ready. I know when they'll be tired, and the bed is turned down. I know it before they know it themselves.”

I couldn't remember who said it, but since I was correct in thinking it was from Gosford Park, I don't feel too bad about looking it up: HELEN MIRREN.

65. In 1945, Warner Brothers introduced a cartoon character based on this actor’s most popular role.

I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that this is Pepe Le Pew, who was based on the lead character in Algiers, played by CHARLES BOYER.

42. “You screwed it all up. You screwed up my mother, you screwed me up. He was a man. Right, a real man, see? Everything I wanted, he wanted for me! You stupid bastard. You got me so mad, drove me crazy. ‘I want my cake, Bedelia! You bitch!’ You calling me a bitch!”

"I want my cake, Bedelia!" is another one of those lines that pops up in internet memes a lot, but I could never remember where I first heard it. This came from George Romero's Creepshow, and the speaker was VIVECA LINDFORS.

44. “There is a dead cobra over there. Please do me the kindness of having it removed.”

Not a Bond film, Mr. K. A Poirot film. PETER USTINOV as the Belgian sleuth in Death on the Nile.

54. “You ain't got to love me, but you gonna know that I love you.”

We've already seen her in a Tangredi game this year, and here she is again: NAOMIE HARRIS in Moonlight.

62. “As long as she ate the mouse, she can't see nor hear. Now sing.”

Another one that I couldn't place for the longest time: RUTH GORDON in Rosemary's Baby.

Susan Kohner was in the remake of Imitation of Life. Claudette Colbert starred in the original

Vivica Lindfors was in I Accuse, which was about the Dreyfus case. Joseph Schildkraut played Dreyfus in Life of Emile Zola

I am not sure that is enough to carry through for an entire puzzle and we would have to find the refinements.

UNLESS we are looking at Imitation of Life of Emile Zola

I am just spitballing here to see if anything sticks

53. His on-screen wives have included Susan Sarandon, the actress in Clue #35, and two of the three sisters in Crimes of the Heart.

Blythe Danner is #35. The three sisters in Crimes of the Heart were Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange, and Sissy Spacek.

55. As the spokesman for a major British corporation, this actor/writer promised to take good care of us.

This was British Airways in the 1970s, but I cannot place the person's name.

63. In a dual role, this actor got to both kill and be killed by Christoph Waltz.

I was trying to remember who did this in Django Unchained. The guy's name is JAMES REMAR.

I believe we are looking at NICK NOLTE for #53, which triggered a third pairing for me. Tangredi would be actors who played married historical characters in films.

Blythe Danner played Martha Jefferson in 1776, and Nick Nolte played Thomas Jefferson in Jefferson in Paris

Joan Allen played Pat Nixon in Frost/Nixon, while Frank Langella played Nixon himself. (This one may be problematic, since it's from the same movie. Anyone else on the list play Tricky Dick in the movies?)

Viveca Lindfors played Mrs. Dreyfus, and Schildkraut played Mr. as Melly noted above.

Joan Allen played Pat in Nixon, so this match works.

Yes, you've got it.

Going back to Susan Kohner, who made only ten films: She played Sigmund Freud's wife in her last film, Freud: The Secret Passion. 20. ALAN ARKIN played Mr. Freud in the Sherlock Holmes film The Seven Per Cent Solution

Another person on this list who didn't make a lot of films was 75. MORGAN BRITTANY. She played Vivien Leigh in Gable and Lombard. She was married to Laurence Olivier, played by 1. KENNETH BRANAGH in My Week with Marilyn.

That's one reason I couldn't figure this one out. It's mousse, not mouse. Mia Farrow ate some drugged pudding, not a rodent.

Yes, but part of Ruth Gordon's character is that she says "mouse" instead of "mousse."

WTG, melly! Time for another consolidation.

One of the wrong answers in the last consolidation was corrected (so all the other quotes must be right), but the other error is still out there.

Identify the 90 actors in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 48 pairs according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Six actors will used twice.

*1. He received one Oscar nomination for playing a role that had previously earned another actor an Oscar nomination, and another Oscar nomination for playing that actor. Got that?
KENNETH BRANAGH

2. KATHERINE HEPBURN

3. Her biographical roles included one singer who survived a plane crash and another who survived alcoholism.
SUSAN HAYWARD

4. CHARLES LAUGHTON

5. She was one of the first stars to receive a Best Actress nomination for playing a thoroughly evil woman. (How evil? She deliberately let her lover’s kid brother drown, that’s how evil.)
GENE TIERNEY

6. “He was a man who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and up to Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364.”
JOHN GOODMAN?

7. On screen she has played someone who grew up to be Lillian Gish and the mother of someone who grew up to be Anthony Hopkins.
MARY STEENBURGEN

8. LUISE RAINIER

9. This actor was directed four times by Blake Edwards but only once by his own big brother.
RICHARD MULLIGAN

10. “What gift do you think a good servant has that separates them from the others? It’s the gift of anticipation. And I'm a good servant; I'm better than good, I'm the best; I'm the perfect servant. I know when they'll be hungry, and the food is ready. I know when they'll be tired, and the bed is turned down. I know it before they know it themselves.”
HELEN MIRREN

11. Like Jessica Tandy and Joanne Woodward before her, she received the Kennedy Center Honors in tandem with her husband.
RUBY DEE

12. RICHARD HARRIS

13. She received her only Oscar nomination for reprising her Tony-winning role as a mother who discovers her daughter has unexpected behavioral issues.
NANCY KELLY

14. UMA THURMAN

15. In the mid-1960s, this Hollywood legend stopped making feature films and took on the lead in a hit television western series.
RONALD REAGAN? BARBARA STANWYCK?

*16. FRANK LANGELLA

17. She starred opposite Charlie Chaplin in her third film and is still working.
CLAIRE BLOOM?

18. “Most fish languages are a combination of bubbles and mouth movement. At the moment, all I can make is large bubbles and they keep telling me I'm shouting.”
REX HARRISON?

19. This actress of mixed Spanish and Lebanese descent first achieved popularity in the title role of a telenovela.
SALMA HAYEK

*20. ALAN ARKIN

21. A busy leading lady of the 1940s, she had not made a movie in twelve years when she suddenly and spectacularly emerged as a Broadway star, appearing on the cover of Time magazine and winning a Tony award.
ALEXIS SMITH

22. HARVEY PRESNELL

23. This actress boosted my writing career by appearing in two readings of one of my plays at the Pasadena Playhouse – and then derailed my writing career by dropping out of a planned production there to star in The Mountaintop on Broadway. (I still don’t hate her as much as I do Norman Mailer, though.)
ANGELA BASSETT

24. BILL MURRAY

25. This British actress – who is still active in her eighties – shares her name with a late American jazz and cabaret singer.

26. “You know, sometimes I wished people was like dogs, Luke. Comes a time, a day like, when the bitch just don't recognize the pups no more, so she don't have no hopes nor love to give her pain. She just don't give a damn.”
GERALDINE PAGE?

27. Fans of Doctor Who – and I know you’re out there – may remember this actor from his portrayal of the Valeyard, a manifestation of the Doctor’s dark side

28. SIGOURNEY WEAVER

29. In a 1951 film, this actor won what is arguably the most suspenseful tennis match in film history.
FARLEY GRANGER

30. JANE FONDA

31. She enjoyed a career resurgence in the same Broadway musical as the actress in Clue #21, although she was a bigger name at the time thanks to her recent stint in a popular sitcom.

32. ROBERT LOGGIA

33. She and her co-star in a hit 2002 movie won the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss – and they sure as hell deserved it.

34. “I'm forty-seven. Forty-seven years old. You know how I stayed alive this long? All these years? Fear. The spectacle of fearsome acts. Somebody steals from me, I cut off his hands. He offends me, I cut out his tongue. He rises against me, I cut off his head, stick it on a pike, raise it high up so all on the streets can see. That's what preserves the order of things. Fear.”
DANIEL DAY LEWIS

*35. She is the Tony-winning and Emmy-winning mother of an Oscar-winning actress.
BLYTHE DANNER

36. “You can't fight her. No one ever got the better of her. Never, never. She was beaten in the end, but it wasn't a man, it wasn't a woman. It was the sea!”
LAURENCE OLIVIER?

37. Before winning his Oscar, this actor had appeared on both The Twilight Zone[i] and [i]The Outer Limits, as well as playing a villain on Batman.
CLIFF ROBERTSON? BURGESS MEREDITH? ART CARNEY?

VIVECA LINDFORS

43. His long career included films based on works by Rudyard Kipling, H.P. Lovecraft, and James Hilton.
RONALD COLMAN

44. “There is a dead cobra over there. Please do me the kindness of having it removed.”

45. She got an Oscar nomination for playing the wife of a Nobel Prize-winning poet.
MIRANDA RICHARDSON

46. DAME JUDI DENCH

47. The warning in the preceding clue was directed at this actor.
COLIN FIRTH

VIRGINIA McKENNA

60. HARVEY KEITEL

BASIL RATHBONE

62. “As long as she ate the mouse, she can't see nor hear. Now sing.”

66. “He found me first when I was fifteen. We were hunting; it was nearly dark. My horse fell; I was thrown. I woke to Richard touching me. He asked me if I loved him: 'Philip, do you love me?' And I told him yes. Do you know why I told him yes? So that one day I could tell you all about it. You cannot imagine what that 'yes' cost. Imagine snuggling to a chancred whore, and bending back your lips into something like a smile saying, 'Yes, I love you, and I find you beautiful.’ I don’t know how I did it.”

*67. Her on-screen husbands have included Liam Neeson, Jeff Bridges, John Travolta, Joe Mantegna, William H. Macy, and the actors in two of the preceding clues.

RUBEN BLADES

70. “Do you know about the early days at the Kimberly diamond mines? Do you know what they did to the native workers who stole diamonds? Don't worry, they didn't kill them. That would be like junking your Mercedes just because it had a broken spring.”

MARIO VAN PEEBLES

72. “My family, they got shot down by D.E.A. officers because of a drug problem. I left with the greatest guy on earth. He was a hitman, the best in town, but he died this morning. And if you don't help me, I'll be dead by tonight.”

*73. He played a major role in one film about the life of Jesus and – 38 years later – gave his final performance in another film about the life of Jesus.

CHADWICK BOSEMAN

82. “It was plain to see that my old pet needed someone, but if it were left up to Roger, we'd be bachelors forever. He was married to his work writing songs. Songs about romance of all things. Something he knew absolutely nothing about.”

83. Her three best films were directed by Orson Welles, John Frankenheimer and – most memorably – Alfred Hitchcock.
JANET LEIGH

84. FRED WARD

One of the definite answers is wrong. The actor suggested fulfills two of the three conditions. The correct actor intersects with the one suggested in one of the relevant movies.

Of the answers with a question mark, three are incorrect. The one with multiple choices includes the correct answer.

WTG, melly! Time for another consolidation.

One of the wrong answers in the last consolidation was corrected (so all the other quotes must be right), but the other error is still out there.

Identify the 90 actors in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 48 pairs according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Six actors will used twice.

*1. He received one Oscar nomination for playing a role that had previously earned another actor an Oscar nomination, and another Oscar nomination for playing that actor. Got that?

3. Her biographical roles included one singer who survived a plane crash and another who survived alcoholism.
SUSAN HAYWARD

4. CHARLES LAUGHTON

5. She was one of the first stars to receive a Best Actress nomination for playing a thoroughly evil woman. (How evil? She deliberately let her lover’s kid brother drown, that’s how evil.)
GENE TIERNEY

6. “He was a man who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and up to Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364.”

I know when they'll be hungry, and the food is ready. I know when they'll be tired, and the bed is turned down. I know it before they know it themselves.”
HELEN MIRREN

This actress boosted my writing career by appearing in two readings of one of my plays at the Pasadena Playhouse – and then derailed my writing career by dropping out of a planned production there to star in The Mountaintop on Broadway.

This could be the one. I can't find a Lovecraft film with Ronald Colman.

I think this is the wrong one.

Lovecraft is Dunwich Horror so maybe SAM JAFFE?? (Gunga Din, Lost Horizon and Dunwich).
