I think I've figured it out.

Chuck Connors was Burl Ives' son in Ives' Oscar winning role in The Big Country. Ives also appeared in White Dog.
Dan Aykroyd was Jessica Tandy's son in Driving Miss Daisy, and Tandy was in The Birds

Others:

Nick Nolte was James Coburn's son in Affliction and Coburn was in The Americanization of Emily
Mark Wahlberg was Melissa Leo's son in The Fighter
Al Pacino was Marlon Brando's son in The Godfather
James Dean was Jo Van Fleet's son in East of Eden
Debra Winger was Shirley MacLaine's daughter in Terms of Endearment

A-37 is Ewan McGregor, who was Christopher Plummer's son in Beginners; Plummer appears in All the Money in the World.

Among the actors, one of the definite answers is wrong.

Of those with a question mark, 7 are right and 2 are wrong.

Of those with alternate answers, 4 include the correct answer and 1 does not.

Among the movies, the same movie has been inadvertently included as the answer to two different question. It's right once.

Of those with a question mark, 3 are right and 2 are wrong.
My bad. B-8 was a typo, so B-10 and the rest of the definite movies must be correct. Updating…

Identify the 65 actors in List A and the 40 movies in List B. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, form 66 pairs, each consisting of one movie and one actor, according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. The same basic Tangredi applies to all pairs, but some of them go one way and some of them go the other way. You’ll see.

One actor will be used twice.

Sixteen movies will be used twice and five movies will be used three times.

There will be no alternate answers.

LIST A: ACTORS

A-1. “I want to save part of my life for myself. There's a catch to it, though: it's got to be part of the young part. You know, retire young, work old. Come back and work when I know what I'm working for. Does that make any sense?”
CARY GRANT

A-2. This knight’s film career included adaptations of works by Leo Tolstoy, Eugene O’Neill, H.G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, Graham Greene, Robert Louis Stevenson, Boris Pasternak, Edgar Rice Burroughs – and, of course, Shakespeare.
RALPH RICHARDSON

A-3. “Stop going for the easy buck and start producing something with your life. Create, instead of living off the buying and selling of others.”
MARTIN SHEEN?

*A-4. JAMES DEAN

A-5. “Mama! Oh, Mama, just think of it! I shall be queen! Queen of France!”
NORMA SHEARER?

A-6. This actor appeared in the last film of a trilogy about a popular superhero and the first film in a continuing franchise about a popular doll.

A-7. “He knew what I was even before I did. The morning I left for college, he walked into my room and held out his hand and it was filled with money, a big sweaty wad of money, and he said, ‘Take this and I don't want you ever to come back.’ I grabbed him and hugged him and he turned around and walked out. I haven't seen him or talked to him since.”

*A-8. NICK NOLTE

A-9. “Let me tell you something, my two fine bedfellows, you're so dumb, there's nothin' to compare ya with! You're dumber than the dumbest jackass. Look at each other, will ya? Did you ever see anything like yourself for bein' dumb specimens? You're so dumb, you don't even see the riches you're treadin' on with your own feet.”
WALTER HUSTON

A-10. He was easily the most distinguished actor to appear in a certain 2013 made-for-television movie that – along with its sequels – has become a byword for bizarrely-conceived schlock.
JOHN HEARD?

A-11. “This is some rescue! You came in here, but didn't you have a plan for getting out?”
CARRIE FISHER

A-12. In 1940, she made her film debut – and got her only Oscar nomination – for recreating her stage role in a Pulitzer Prize-winning classic.
MARTHA SCOTT? JUDY HOLIDAY?

A-13. “Josh? He's nobody's boyfriend. He's just this guy that Becky and I like to torture.”

A-14. The day after this actress died at the age of 82, Bette Davis paid tribute to her, telling Dick Cavett she was a “gorgeous woman … the most beautiful person as well as actress,” and praising her for being a thorough professional who was never late and never missed a line.
GLADYS COOPER

A-15. “Gretchen, I'm sorry I laughed at you that time you got diarrhea at Barnes & Nobles…. And I'm sorry for telling everyone about it…. And I'm sorry for repeating it now.”
AMANDA SEYFRIED

A-16. The character that this actor played in a Best Picture Oscar winner was based on a real life British lord who refused to allow his name to be used – and who regretted the decision after he saw the movie.
NIGEL HAVERS

A-17. “You think I would let my kids near you? Look at yourself! You know what my lawyer said? My lawyer said that you're going to prison for 20 years, Jordan! Twenty f**king years! You're never gonna see the kids again! No, I'm not f**king letting you near my kids!”

A-18. This Canadian actor is perhaps best remembered today for playing a particularly repellent overseer, but it was his role as a vicious killer stalking two children in a cave that really gave me nightmares as a kid.
VICTOR JORY

*A-19. MARK WAHLBERG

A-20. Being a direct descendant of a beloved hero of the American Revolution did not save this Oscar-winning character actress from the Hollywood Blacklist.
ANNE REVERE

A-21. “I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right.”

A-22. This performer is the youngest actor ever nominated for an Oscar in a leading role.
ADRIAN BRODY? JACKIE COOPER? JUSTIN HENRY?

*A-23. AL PACINO
A-24. JOHN DEREK

A-25. “So you're Lonesome's new tootsie, huh? ‘Lonesome,’ that's a hot one. I hope you have better luck keeping him lonesome than I did.”
PATRICIA NEAL? KAY MEDFORD?

A-26. After appearing in the last of her six films opposite the same leading man, she went on to play a wide variety of stage and screen roles for five decades, while he continued to play the same role six more times without her.
MYRNA LOY? MAUREEN O'SULLIVAN?

A-27. “There was a demon that lived in the air. They said whoever challenged him would die. Their controls would freeze up, their planes would buffet wildly, and they would disintegrate. The demon lived at Mach 1 on the meter, seven hundred and fifty miles an hour, where the air could no longer move out of the way. He lived behind a barrier through which they said no man could ever pass.”
SAM SHEPHERD?

A-28. In a 1997 television movie, he took on a role that had previously been played by Walter Abel and E.G. Marshall.
DUSTIN HOFFMAN

A-29. “You can sew almost anything into the canvas of a coat.”
DANIEL DAY LEWIS

A-30. In a few weeks – unless the Tangredi curse gets to her – this actress will turn ninety – which is considerably younger than the character she played on a creepy episode of The Twilight Zone.

A-31. “We're not just an uncle and a niece. It's something else. I know you. I know you don't tell people a lot of things. I don't either. I have a feeling that inside you there's something nobody knows about ... something secret and wonderful. I'll find it out.”
TERESA WRIGHT

A-32. For a time, this actress took on a new name when a bird was killed during the filming of one of her early movies and she felt the spirit of the bird enter her.
BARBARA HERSHEY

*A-33. DEBRA WINGER

A-34. When this distinguished Scottish-born stage actress took a role in a popular soap opera at the age of 58, it was only supposed to be for the duration of a single story line, but she was brought back by popular demand and was still playing the role when she died – 32 years later.
EILEEN HERLIE?

A-35. “We're the victims of a foul disease called social prejudice, my child. These dear ladies of the Law and Order League are scouring out the dregs of the town. Come on. Be a proud, glorified dreg like me.”
THOMAS MITCHELL

A-36. As far as I know, she was the only actress ever to play a nude love scene with Vincent Price’s wife.
SUSANNAH YORK

*A-37. EWAN McGREGOR

A-38. One of the oddest moments of this British actor’s career found him raising his voice in song with Bing Crosby and William Bendix. (William Bendix?)
CEDRIC HARDWICKE

A-39. “Níor lig mé m'fhear chéile isteach i mo leaba liom aréir. Chuir mé fuinneamh air a chodladh i - Ó, i mála codlata! Mála codlata!”
MAUREEN O’HARA

*A-40. CHUCK CONNORS

A-41. “Vince threw hot coffee in my face. I'm gonna' be scarred. The whole side of my face will be scarred.”
GLORIA GRAHAME

SHIRLEY KNIGHT?

A-49. “He's escaped from the insane asylum. Seven years ago he murdered two children, broke into the house and found them asleep in bed. There was a little boy, four and a half, and his little three year old sister. After the coroner's investigation, their bodies were taken to the mortuary where the undertaker took one look at them and said their bodies couldn't be reconstructed for the burial without six days of steady work. Then he asked what had been the murder weapon, because looking at the mess in front of him, he couldn't imagine what had been used. The coroner told him there had been no weapon, just his hands.”
DONALD PLEASANCE?

A-50. This actress has worked with both Charlie Chaplin and Woody Allen.
CLAIRE BLOOM

A-51. “This business of hating Jews comes in a lot of different sizes. There's the ‘you can't join our country club’ kind and ‘you can't live around here’ kind. Yes, and the ‘you can't work here’ kind. And because we stand for all of these, we get Monty's kind. He's just one guy, we don't get him very often, but he grows out of all the rest.”

A-53. “Top of the world, son!”

“Not on your first visit!”

Is this STEEL MAGNOLIAS?

If it is, it gives us Sally Field and Shirley McLaine for Pat Hingle and Debra winger, respectively

And we need a Melvyn Douglas movie to go with paul Newman (Douglas's Oscar for Hud).

I'm not sure how Frank is doing this, but Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin both won Oscars as mother/daughter in The Piano, and Hunter was in Broadcast News. There may be a Paquin movie somewhere as well.

It gives is Brando to complete Al Pacino and Vivien Leigh to complete Thomas Mitchell.

I think I've figured it out.

Chuck Connors was Burl Ives' son in Ives' Oscar winning role in The Big Country. Ives also appeared in White Dog.
Dan Aykroyd was Jessica Tandy's son in Driving Miss Daisy, and Tandy was in The Birds

Others:

Nick Nolte was James Coburn's son in Affliction and Coburn was in The Americanization of Emily
Mark Wahlberg was Melissa Leo's son in The Fighter
Al Pacino was Marlon Brando's son in The Godfather
James Dean was Jo Van Fleet's son in East of Eden
Debra Winger was Shirley MacLaine's daughter in Terms of Endearment

A-37 is Ewan McGregor, who was Christopher Plummer's son in Beginners; Plummer appears in All the Money in the World.


Adding some more

A-16. NIGEL HAVERS, son of Peggy Ashcroft (B-40. THE 39 STEPS) in A Passage tom India
A-46. TYRONE POWER, son of Alice Brady (B-18. THE GAY DIVORCEE) in In Old Chicago
A-10. JOHN HEARD, son of Geraldine Page (B-38. THE RESCUERS) in A Trip to Bountiful
A-59. ANTHONY HOPKINS, son of Katharine Hepburn in B-19. (BRINGING UP BABY) in A Lion in Winter
A-22. JACKIE COOPER, son of Wallace Beery (B-1. GRAND HOTEL) in The Champ

Has to be Cooper - Brody is youngest winner, Henry was in supporting category)

and the OTHER way

A-9. WALTER HUSTON, father of Jimmy Cagney (B-6. CITY FOR CONQUEST) in Yankee Doodle Dandy
A-53. MARGARET WYCHERLY, mother of Jimmy Cagney(B-6. CITY FOR CONQUEST) in White Heat


I am an idiot. Cagney didn't WIN an Oscar for White Heat.

A-53 MARGARET WYCHERLY is here for Gary Cooper in Sergeant York. I don't see a Cooper film off the top of my head but there's one here, I am sure.

B-8. It was the first film adapted from a work by arguably the most influential American novelist of the 20th century. (The second, eleven years later, starred the same leading man.)

How about A FAREWELL TO ARMS. the second would be For Whom the Bell Tolls and gives us Gary Cooper.

A-56. COLLEEN DEWHURST, mother of Diane Keaton (B-14. CRIMES OF THE HEART) in Annie Hall. (second use and as I said, doubtless also here for Durning/Lange for the third use)

Mildred Dunnock was Liz Taylor's mother in Butterfield 8.

So, there's got to be a Taylor movie here - one for her Butterfield 8 Oscar and for Anne Revere's National Velvet Oscar.

I just realized that can't work that way.

Anne Revere is mother of Jennifer Jones (Portrait of Jennie) in Song of Bernadette

Mildred Dunnock is mother of Liz Taylor (??) in Butterfield 8

Really, I need to get back to work.

B-30. With a plot that anticipated the later – and far better – Roman Holiday, this romantic comedy nevertheless holds an important place in Hollywood history, leading as it did to a landmark legal decision.

I just realized that this is probably Princess O'Rourke. Which is one of the films that caused Olivia deHaviland's suspension.

Gives us

A-2. RALPH RICHARDSON, father of Olivia deHaviland (B-30. PRINCESS O'ROURKE) in The Heiress
A-54. CHARLES BICKFORD, father of Jane Wyman (B-30 PRINCESS O'ROURKE) in Johnny Belinda

I’m pleased this game’s a bit easier. It may be finished in record time! I’m using this lull to update the consolidation…

Identify the 65 actors in List A and the 40 movies in List B. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, form 66 pairs, each consisting of one movie and one actor, according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. The same basic Tangredi applies to all pairs, but some of them go one way and some of them go the other way. You’ll see.

One actor will be used twice.

Sixteen movies will be used twice and five movies will be used three times.

There will be no alternate answers.

LIST A: ACTORS

*A-1. CARY GRANT
*A-2. RALPH RICHARDSON
*A-3. MARTIN SHEEN
*A-4. JAMES DEAN
*A-5. NORMA SHEARER

A-6. This actor appeared in the last film of a trilogy about a popular superhero and the first film in a continuing franchise about a popular doll.

A-7. “He knew what I was even before I did. The morning I left for college, he walked into my room and held out his hand and it was filled with money, a big sweaty wad of money, and he said, ‘Take this and I don't want you ever to come back.’ I grabbed him and hugged him and he turned around and walked out. I haven't seen him or talked to him since.”

*A-8. NICK NOLTE

A-9. “Let me tell you something, my two fine bedfellows, you're so dumb, there's nothin' to compare ya with! You're dumber than the dumbest jackass. Look at each other, will ya? Did you ever see anything like yourself for bein' dumb specimens? You're so dumb, you don't even see the riches you're treadin' on with your own feet.”
WALTER HUSTON

*A-10. JOHN HEARD
*A-11. CARRIE FISHER
*A-12. MARTHA SCOTT

A-13. “Josh? He's nobody's boyfriend. He's just this guy that Becky and I like to torture.”

*A-14. GLADYS COOPER

A-15. “Gretchen, I'm sorry I laughed at you that time you got diarrhea at Barnes & Nobles…. And I'm sorry for telling everyone about it…. And I'm sorry for repeating it now.”
AMANDA SEYFRIED

*A-16. NIGEL HAVERS

A-17. “You think I would let my kids near you? Look at yourself! You know what my lawyer said? My lawyer said that you're going to prison for 20 years, Jordan! Twenty f**king years! You're never gonna see the kids again! No, I'm not f**king letting you near my kids!”

*A-18. VICTOR JORY
*A-19. MARK WAHLBERG
*A-20. ANNE REVERE

A-21. “I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right.”

*A-22. JACKIE COOPER
*A-23. AL PACINO
A-24. JOHN DEREK

A-25. “So you're Lonesome's new tootsie, huh? ‘Lonesome,’ that's a hot one. I hope you have better luck keeping him lonesome than I did.”
PATRICIA NEAL? KAY MEDFORD?

*A-26. MAUREEN O'SULLIVAN
*A-27. LEVON HELM

A-28. In a 1997 television movie, he took on a role that had previously been played by Walter Abel and E.G. Marshall.
DUSTIN HOFFMAN

A-29. “You can sew almost anything into the canvas of a coat.”
DANIEL DAY LEWIS

A-30. In a few weeks – unless the Tangredi curse gets to her – this actress will turn ninety – which is considerably younger than the character she played on a creepy episode of The Twilight Zone.

*A-31. TERESA WRIGHT

A-32. For a time, this actress took on a new name when a bird was killed during the filming of one of her early movies and she felt the spirit of the bird enter her.
BARBARA HERSHEY

*A-33. DEBRA WINGER
*A-34. EILEEN HERLIE
*A-35. THOMAS MITCHELL

A-36. As far as I know, she was the only actress ever to play a nude love scene with Vincent Price’s wife.
SUSANNAH YORK

*A-37. EWAN McGREGOR

A-38. One of the oddest moments of this British actor’s career found him raising his voice in song with Bing Crosby and William Bendix. (William Bendix?)
CEDRIC HARDWICKE

*A-39. MAUREEN O’HARA
*A-40. CHUCK CONNORS

A-41. “Vince threw hot coffee in my face. I'm gonna' be scarred. The whole side of my face will be scarred.”

*A-46. TYRONE POWER
*A-47. RICHARD BEYMER

A-48. This actress has played both the daughter of Robert Preston and – regrettably – the mother of Kevin James.
SHIRLEY KNIGHT?

A-49. “He's escaped from the insane asylum. Seven years ago he murdered two children, broke into the house and found them asleep in bed. There was a little boy, four and a half, and his little three year old sister. After the coroner's investigation, their bodies were taken to the mortuary where the undertaker took one look at them and said their bodies couldn't be reconstructed for the burial without six days of steady work. Then he asked what had been the murder weapon, because looking at the mess in front of him, he couldn't imagine what had been used. The coroner told him there had been no weapon, just his hands.”
DONALD PLEASANCE?

A-50. This actress has worked with both Charlie Chaplin and Woody Allen.
CLAIRE BLOOM

A-51. “This business of hating Jews comes in a lot of different sizes. There's the ‘you can't join our country club’ kind and ‘you can't live around here’ kind. Yes, and the ‘you can't work here’ kind. And because we stand for all of these, we get Monty's kind. He's just one guy, we don't get him very often, but he grows out of all the rest.”
ROBERT YOUNG

A-52. This Florida-born actor played the same role in all four installments of the first modern Batman franchise.
PAT HINGLE

*A-54. CHARLES BICKFORD
A-55. ANNA PAQUIN

*A-62. ELLEN BARKIN
*A-63. DONALD SUTHERLAND

A-64. In 1969, she played the title role in a movie produced by her then-husband; they subsequently named their only child after the movie. (The marriage didn’t last and the child no longer goes by that name.)

HENRY FONDA

Logan's Run is 1976. I think this is ROLLERBALL, which would be the link to John Houseman.
