Game #179: The Name of the Movie

Identify the 110 actors in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, them into 38 pairs and 17 triples according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Twelve actors will be used twice and one actor will be used six times.

1. He was only the sixth movie star to preserve his footprints and handprints – along with an impression of his signature accessory – in cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.

2. “There's a big difference. Ale's sort of fermented on the top or something, and beer's fermented on the bottom, or maybe it's the other way around. There's no similarity at all. You see, the trouble with being descended from a brewer, no matter how long ago he brewed it, or whatever you call it, you're supposed to know all about something you don't give a hoot about.”

3. Since 1995, he has been nominated for the Oscar three times as an actor and four times as a producer, winning once in the latter category.

4. “Mr. Allen, this may come as a surprise to you, but there are some men who don't end every sentence with a proposition.”

5. His career included films based on works by Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Galsworthy and Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

6. “You know what? I respect women! I love women! I respect them so much that I completely stay away from them!”

7. The first woman to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Director also directed this actor to his only Oscar nomination.

8. “I'm such a fool, such an old fool. These are only tears of gratitude - an old maid's gratitude for the crumbs offered.”

9. In a 1998 movie, this actor played the lover of a real-life woman another of whose lovers – sort of – had been played 59 years earlier by an actor in one of the preceding clues. Got that?

10. “We see a deadly sin on every street corner, in every home, and we tolerate it. We tolerate it because it's common, it's trivial. We tolerate it morning, noon, and night. Well, not anymore. I'm setting the example. What I've done is going to be puzzled over and studied and followed ... forever.”

11. In a 1942 film – one of the first to arise out of U.S participation in World War II – this actor commanded the heroic but doomed American defense of a titular coral atoll in the Pacific.

12. “This is a $4,000 sofa, upholstered in Italian silk. This is not just a couch.”

13. He was the only knighted actor ever to star on episodes of The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.

14. “Top five musical crimes perpetuated by Stevie Wonder in the '80s and '90s. Go! Sub-question: is it, in fact, unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins? Is it better to burn out or fade away?”

15. In 1934, he took on a classic role that would later be played by Orson Welles, Robert Newton, and Tim Curry.

16. “Do I look all rancid and clotted? You look at me, Jack. Eh? Look, eh? And I drink a lot of water, you know. I'm what you might call a water man, Jack - that's what I am. And I can swear to you, my boy, swear to you, that there's nothing wrong with my bodily fluids. Not a thing, Jackie.”

17. She won an Emmy for playing T, Buck, Alice, Shoshana, Gimme, and Chicken.

18. “If I had known how much you talk, I'd never have come out of my coma.”

19. In 1933, he actually was what he claimed to be for the next four decades.

20. “What happens to us in the future? Do we become a**holes or something?”

21. A good friend of Amelia Earhart, this actress flew solo across the United States several times and sponsored an annual air race that bore her name.

22. “If we're not gonna make it, it's gotta be you that gets out, cause I'm not capable. I'm f**king Irish, I'll deal with something being wrong for the rest of my life.”

23. This prolific – in more ways than one – musical comedy star also played a key role in launching the March of Dimes.

24. “He is always very depressed. I think that if he'd been a successful criminal, he would have felt better. You know, he never made the 'ten most wanted' list. It's very unfair voting; it's who you know.”

25. In the opening credits of a classic comedy, members of the cast were likened to a doe and fawn, a leopard, a cat, a cow, a fox, an owl, a monkey, a horse – and, in the case of this actress, a lamb.

26. “Pazuzu, king of the evil spirits of the air, help me to find Kokumo!”

27. She was the first actor to lose an Oscar to one of her castmates, but she got even more attention to losing an Oscar to the actress in Clue #25.

28. “Oh, no offense. Movies are entertaining enough for the masses, but the personalities on the screen just don't impress me. I mean they don't talk, they don't act, they just make a lot of dumb show.”

29. Regarding his unwillingness to remove even his shirt in scenes with a female co-star, this American actor explained, “I do love scenes, but not ones with gratuitous sex. And it’s not just about my wife, although that’s important. It’s sin, pure and simple. I mean, it’s wrong. It’s awkward."

30. “You should have seen the Atlantic Ocean back then.”

31. Regarding his willingness to remove a lot more than his shirt in scenes with or without a female co-star, this Irish actor explained, “I couldn't care less about who sees my bits. My friends asked how I could do scenes like that and not get excited, but it wasn't like that. My bits looked the size of a cashew nut!”

32. “I wouldn't marry you if you were young, which you can't be … if you were honest, which you never were … and if you were about to die tomorrow, which is too much to hope for!”

33. After making his debut in a non-speaking role as a body builder in a beach movie, he – quite appropriately – worked as an animal trainer and wrangler for Walt Disney Studios.

34. “I steal.”

35. The film that won him the second of his two Cesar awards also earned him his only Oscar nomination, in a role that had earlier won another actor an Oscar.

36. “You leave public opinion to me. Now, Joe, I think you'd better go back into the Senate and keep those senators lined up.”

37. Describing a much-publicized motorcycle accident, this actor said, “It knocked a big hole in my skull, which filled with bone from my jaw.” Yowza.

38. “No! I'm not finished! There's nothing here about technique! There's nothing in here about structure! There's nothing in here about intentions! It's just a bunch of crappy opinions, backed up by even crappier comparisons. You write a couple of paragraphs and you know what? None of this cost you f**kin' anything! The f**k! You risk nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! I'm a f**king actor! This play cost me everything! So I tell you what, you take this f**ked malicious cowardly sh*tty written review and you shove that right the f**k up your wrinkly tight ass.”

39. He was the first actor to win five Emmy awards, all for the same role.

40. “That's a Smith & Wesson, and you've had your six.”

41. I won’t swear he’s the only Oscar-winning actor ever to host a game show, but he’s the only one I can think of.

42. “Killin' generals could get to be a habit with me.”

43. In 1961, when she signed a five-year contract to do a sitcom, former co-star Burt Lancaster warned her it was a big mistake. (It wasn’t.)

44. “Now this looks familiar. Where have I seen this before? Hm, let me think. Oh, yes, I remember! This is just the way your father looked before he died.”

45. Three decades after playing a superhero on the big screen, she played the foster mother of the same superhero on the small screen.

46. “God, she's beautiful. She's got the prettiest eyes. She looks so sexy in that sweater. I just want to be alone with her and hold her and kiss her and tell her how much I love her and take care of her…. Stop it you idiot, she's your wife's sister!”

47. In 1953, he hopped through his signature screen moment.

48. “Every piece of this is man's bullsh*t. They call this war a cloud over the land. But they made the weather and then they stand in the rain and say 'Shit, it's raining!'”

49. Deborah Kerr, Audrey Hepburn, and this actress all received the same service from the same specialist.

50. “The murderer is right in this room. Sitting at this table. You may serve the fish.”

51. In the film referenced in Clue #45, he played the father of the actress who is the answer to that clue.

52. “First, the young ladies. They must prove that they are worthy and appreciative of the courtesies we are going to show them. Soon, boyfriends and marriage will concern you. No man likes a slut for long. Only the worst type will marry one. And the competition for men on the outside is rough. Next, men. I've seen garbage collectors who are cleaner. Toughness is a quality of the mind, like bravery, honesty, and ambition. If you want to wear your hair long, clean it, or else you will soon get lice and smell. Soon your principal interest will be girls. You will be much more attractive to them with clean clothes, clean shoes, hands, face, teeth, etc. Now, any questions?”

53. Upon his death in 1961, a Swedish newspaper called him “the incarnation of the honorable American.” (He was also one of Hollywood’s most notorious horndogs.)

54. “Something must be done. Without the ring, there will be no sacrifice. Without the sacrifice, there will be no congregation. Without the congregation – no more me.”

55. Oscar-wise, he completes the following list: Cate Blanchett; Bing Crosby; Paul Newman; Peter O’Toole; Sylvester Stallone.

56. “Is there some reason that my coffee isn't here? Has she died or something?”

57. This British star’s brief sojourn in Hollywood included an inspiring biopic of a World War I martyr and the film versions of three post-World War I Broadway musicals.

58. “My father's guilty. He lied to me, he lied to everybody. I just left home. I need you.”

59. This British actress has played the mother of the actor in one of the preceding clues and the wife of the actor in another.

60. “I've been called many names over many lifetimes. I am born of death. I was there to spark and fan the flame of man's awakening, to spin the wheel of civilization. And when the forest would grow rank and needed clearing for new growth, I was there to set it ablaze.”

61. For a time, she was both the shortest adult actor to win an Oscar – beating out Josephine Hull – and the second oldest actor to win an Oscar – surpassed only by Josephine Hull.

62. “If nothing else, there's applause ... like waves of love pouring over the footlights.”

64. “I can't believe my grandmother actually felt me up.”

65. His career included films based on works by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ray Bradbury, Mark Twain, Toni Morrison, and Eugene O’Neill.

66. “I'm the defendant and the plaintiff simultaneously. I file against myself, I represent myself, I convict myself, hereby expanding the full scope of the legal desert, because the judgment's built in. The only thing left is forgiveness and I grant that to myself. An act doesn't make the person guilty unless the mind is guilty as well.”

67. In 1961, she took on a tear-jerker role that had earlier been played by Irene Dunne and Margaret Sullavan.

68. “Lord, I'd just like to thank You for that waitress in South Bend. You know who she is - she kept calling Your name.”

69. One of the stars of the first film written and directed by the actor in the preceding clue was named after this respected actress.

73. Sadly, I couldn’t work the actress to whom he was married from 1967 to 1974 into this puzzle, so he will have to do.

74. “Jesus, Frank, don't f**king lie to me. I have a rendezvous with death, and so does the President, and so do you, Frank, if you get too close to me.”

75. He was the only actor ever to win both the Oscar and the Tony twice.

76. “I don't know who you are. And I don't know what we've been playing at. So I was crying. Because I don't know if I love you anymore. And I don't know what I'm going to do without that.”

77. He achieved his greatest popularity in a role that had first been played in the movies by the actor in the preceding clue.

83. In 1934, this actor took on a classic role that would later be played by – among others – Arturo de Cordova, Jean Marais, and the actor in Clue #29 (who, presumably, kept his clothes on.)

84. “All right, fellas, let's go and say a prayer for a boy who couldn't run as fast as I could.”

85. Of the twelve individuals who have completed the EGOT, it took this actress the longest time to do it – a total of 45 years.

86. “Do you know how many times I've heard stories like this? It's every orphan's fantasy. My real mom and dad were rich, and beautiful. But there was a mix-up at the hospital. And I got switched with another baby. But one day, there's gonna be a knock at the door. And there they'll be, with open arms, crying, ‘My darling. My treasure. We didn't know. How can we make it up to you?’ Let me tell you something for your own good, Julius. It’s a crock!”

87. She was the central figure in a memorable moment that also involved Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Lupita Nyong’o, Jared Leto, and three actors represented in previous clues.

88. “When you go for a job, the person giving you that job will not want to hear your problems; ergo, neither do I. You're going to work harder here than you've ever worked anywhere else. And the only thing I ask from you is ganas.

89. The bob cut that Vidal Sassoon created for this actress became a fashion sensation and is still associated with her name.

95. This actor’s best movie was sandwiched between his cameo in Around the World in 80 Days and his cameo in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

96. “You're both out of your senses. This isn't worth a life, anybody's life. What are you fighting for? This shack, this little piece of ground, and nothing but work, work, work? I'm sick of it. I'm sick of trouble. Joe, let's move. Let's go on. Please!”

97. In 1935, this actor played one of the ‘umblest characters in English literature – just ask him.

98. “You know something Fantan? This world is so full of crap, a man's gonna get into it sooner or later whether he's careful or not.”

99. For a brief period in the late 50s – early 60s, this American was the highest paid movie star in Europe. (Why?)

100. “Well, on Earth, when our psychocardiogram readings are in harmony and we wish to ‘make love,’ as you call it, we take an exultation transference pellet and remain like this. Here, let me show you. For one minute or until full rapport is achieved.”

And you feared to be in my debt. “

109. In 1921, he took on a classic role that would later be played by Gene Kelly, Don Ameche, Michael York, and Logan Lerman. (Logan Lerman?)

38. “No! I'm not finished! There's nothing here about technique! There's nothing in here about structure! There's nothing in here about intentions!

Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! I'm a f**king actor! This play cost me everything! So I tell you what, you take this f**ked malicious cowardly sh*tty written review and you shove that right the f**k up your wrinkly tight ass.”

1. He was only the sixth movie star to preserve his footprints and handprints – along with an impression of his signature accessory – in cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
WAG: Harold Lloyd (glasses)? Charlie Chaplin (cane)?

2. “There's a big difference. Ale's sort of fermented on the top or something, and beer's fermented on the bottom, or maybe it's the other way around. There's no similarity at all. You see, the trouble with being descended from a brewer, no matter how long ago he brewed it, or whatever you call it, you're supposed to know all about something you don't give a hoot about.”
I recognize it but can't place it - maybe 'About A Boy' Hugh Grant?

5. His career included films based on works by Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Galsworthy and Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
WAG: Spencer Tracey?

8. “I'm such a fool, such an old fool. These are only tears of gratitude - an old maid's gratitude for the crumbs offered.”
Bette Davis (Now, Voyager)

14. “Top five musical crimes perpetuated by Stevie Wonder in the '80s and '90s. Go! Sub-question: is it, in fact, unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins? Is it better to burn out or fade away?”
Jack Black (High Fidelity)

16. “Do I look all rancid and clotted? You look at me, Jack. Eh? Look, eh? And I drink a lot of water, you know. I'm what you might call a water man, Jack - that's what I am. And I can swear to you, my boy, swear to you, that there's nothing wrong with my bodily fluids. Not a thing, Jackie.”
Peter Sellers (Dr Strangelove OHISWALTLTB)

19. In 1933, he actually was what he claimed to be for the next four decades.
Jack Benny (I'm guessing he turned 39 in 1933)

20. “What happens to us in the future? Do we become a**holes or something?”
Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future)

21. A good friend of Amelia Earhart, this actress flew solo across the United States several times and sponsored an annual air race that bore her name.

24. “He is always very depressed. I think that if he'd been a successful criminal, he would have felt better. You know, he never made the 'ten most wanted' list. It's very unfair voting; it's who you know.”
From Take the Money and Run - I think it Janet Margolin said this as opposed to Louise Lasser.

28. “Oh, no offense. Movies are entertaining enough for the masses, but the personalities on the screen just don't impress me. I mean they don't talk, they don't act, they just make a lot of dumb show.”

37. Describing a much-publicized motorcycle accident, this actor said, “It knocked a big hole in my skull, which filled with bone from my jaw.” Yowza.
Yowza makes me think of either Joe E. Brown or Gig Young but I don't know about either of them being in a motorcycle accident.

42. “Killin' generals could get to be a habit with me.”
From the Dirty Dozen - I'm pretty sure Charles Bronson said it.

46. “God, she's beautiful. She's got the prettiest eyes. She looks so sexy in that sweater. I just want to be alone with her and hold her and kiss her and tell her how much I love her and take care of her…. Stop it you idiot, she's your wife's sister!”
Michael Caine (Hannah and her Sisters - who just recently said it would not do another Woody Allen movie)

49. Deborah Kerr, Audrey Hepburn, and this actress all received the same service from the same specialist.
Guessing the specialist is Marnie Nixon - so I think it probably must be Natalie Wood who did her singing in West Side Story

50. “The murderer is right in this room. Sitting at this table. You may serve the fish.”
William Powell (The Thin Man)

52. “First, the young ladies. They must prove that they are worthy and appreciative of the courtesies we are going to show them. Soon, boyfriends and marriage will concern you. No man likes a slut for long. Only the worst type will marry one. And the competition for men on the outside is rough. Next, men. I've seen garbage collectors who are cleaner. Toughness is a quality of the mind, like bravery, honesty, and ambition. If you want to wear your hair long, clean it, or else you will soon get lice and smell. Soon your principal interest will be girls. You will be much more attractive to them with clean clothes, clean shoes, hands, face, teeth, etc. Now, any questions?”
Sidney Poitier (To Sir, WIth Love)

54. “Something must be done. Without the ring, there will be no sacrifice. Without the sacrifice, there will be no congregation. Without the congregation – no more me.”

Jennifer Aniston (Office Space)

72. “There's a lot to be said for making people laugh. Did you know that that's all some people have? It isn't much, but it's better than nothing in this cockeyed caravan.”
Is this Joel McCray in Sullivan's Travels?

74. “Jesus, Frank, don't f**king lie to me. I have a rendezvous with death, and so does the President, and so do you, Frank, if you get too close to me.”
John Malkovich (In The Line of Fire)

And I got switched with another baby. But one day, there's gonna be a knock at the door. And there they'll be, with open arms, crying, ‘My darling. My treasure. We didn't know. How can we make it up to you?’ Let me tell you something for your own good, Julius. It’s a crock!”
I don't think it's Carol Burnnet (Annie) and I know I've heard this line but I can't place it.

87. She was the central figure in a memorable moment that also involved Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Lupita Nyong’o, Jared Leto, and three actors represented in previous clues.
Was this the Meryl Streep Selfie taken at the Oscars a few years ago?

90. “We didn't forget him, we just miscounted.”
Cathrine O'Hara (in one of the Home Alone movies)

104. “In love or war, with people like us/We've got to work fast or we'll miss the bus/If you straddle a fence and you sit and wait/You get too little and you get it too late/What'll you say if we see it through/You stick by me and I'll stick by you/And our eighteen children will be glad we said/’Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.’”
Lucille Ball/Henry Fonda (Yours, Mine and Ours)?

108. “We have known each other many years, but this is the first time you've come to me for counsel or for help. I can't remember the last time you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife is godmother to your only child. But let's be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you feared to be in my debt. “
Marlin Brando (The Godfather)

110. “I'm shakin' the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I'm gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I'm comin' back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I'm gonna build things. I'm gonna build airfields, I'm gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I'm gonna build bridges a mile long.”
Jimmy Stewart (It's A Wonderful Life)

All but one of the answers with a question mark are correct.

All but one of those with alternate answers include the correct answer.

Everything suggested since this consolidation is correct.

All of the definite answers are correct.

Of the ones that have a single answer with a question mark, three are incorrect. In the case of #1, the mistake was mine: I miscounted, the person I'm looking for was actually the FIFTH star, not the sixth. In another, the name suggested is also correctly suggested as an answer to a different question. (I should have been more specific about the Vidal Sassoon question.) In the fourth case, the answer is just incorrect.

All of the ones with several alternates include the correct answer. In one case, one of the incorrect answers is the correct answer to a different question.

I'm not sure if it's correct, but MIKE MAZURKI was in Some Like It Hot between those two other movies.

If #1 is the fifth star at Grauman's, than I am pretty certain it's HAROLD LLOYD (with the signature glasses)

The haircut can't be Mia Farrow - that's the correct answer to another question (the director father) The only haircut I can think of, though, was the Jean Shrimpton cut and I am pretty sure that's not who Frank wants.

2. “There's a big difference. Ale's sort of fermented on the top or something, and beer's fermented on the bottom, or maybe it's the other way around. There's no similarity at all. You see, the trouble with being descended from a brewer, no matter how long ago he brewed it, or whatever you call it, you're supposed to know all about something you don't give a hoot about.”
HUGH GRANT? HENRY FONDA?

Tis is definitely Henry Fonda to in The Lady Eve. Pike's Ale, the ale that won for Yale. Or some such Sturges stuff.

97. In 1935, this actor played one of the ‘umblest characters in English literature – just ask him.

For heaven's sake -ROLAND YOUNG. Uriah Heep in David Copperfield.

NANCY KWAN!!! THE HAIRCUT IS NANCY KWAN.

The bob was longer than the five points cut and certainly longer than the Farrow pixie.Covered the ears and had some teasing at the back.

I don't know about Cordova, but Marais and Caviezel both played the Count of Monte Cristo... so this should be ROBERT DONAT.

I concur and withdraw my Hugh Grant suggestion - as soon as I saw The Lady Eve/Henry Fonda response I knew exactly why I knew the quote - so make that a definite.

Also, Richard Farnsworth is given twice - I think 33 is wrong and 63 is correct.

Could this be Elvis Presley when he was in the army?
