Going back to SSS mentioning Jack Cassidy's The Eiger Connection...

I just realized that Eiger is two letters away from being Steiger, as in Rod Steiger.

If Sidney Poitier is correct on #3, they could connect via In the Heat of the Night.

And the "St" addition to "Eiger" just happens to be the abbreviation for Saint, who is definitely made in Heaven...

Steiger also appeared with Lee J. Cobb in On the Waterfront, Omar Sharif in Dr. Zhivago, and Claire Bloom in The Illustrated Man (and there's probably some others as well), so I don't think that narrows it down enough.

I think Frank mentioned toppling dominos as a clue. Maybe there's a movie with Domino in the title that plays into this.

No, that wasn't a clue, not this time. I just meant that once you figure out the Tangredi, the matches will be crystal clear. There won't be any ambiguity whatsoever. A couple of people on this list should give it away.

And don't look for any hidden clues in that wording, either.

And I'm Marguerite too: vain, jealous, obsessed with self, looking at my face in the mirror – ‘Are my teeth nice?

He was the Soubeyran I'd hoped for all my life, whom I tormented to death because I didn't know who he was. If I had told him about the spring, he'd still be playing his harmonica, and you'd all be living in our family home. No one knows it, but I'm too ashamed to face anyone, even the trees.”

37. Only two actors have played James Bond in more films than he.
PIERCE BROSNAN

That can be a virtue when it drives us to excel. Resourcefulness, courage - perhaps not on the battlefield, but there are many forms of courage. Devotion, to my family and to you.

RONALD REAGAN

54. “Now what kind of an attitude is that, ‘These things happen?’ They only happen because this whole country is just full of people who, when these things happen, they just say ‘These things happen,’ and that's why they happen!”

KAY KENDALL
62. “Some people think the Crucifixion only took place on Calvary. They better wise up! Taking Joey Doyle's life to stop him from testifying is a crucifixion. And dropping a sling on Kayo Dugan because he was ready to spill his guts tomorrow, that's a crucifixion. And every time the mob puts the pressure on a good man, tries to stop him from doing his duty as a citizen, it's a crucifixion. And anybody who sits around and lets it happen, keeps silent about something he knows that happened, shares the guilt of it just as much as the Roman soldier who pierced the flesh of our Lord to see if he was dead.”

And in a few years when I haven't been around to be on your tail about something or irritating you, you could remember that time that I bought you the baseball glove when you thought we were too broke. You know? Or when I read you those stories? Or when I let you goof off instead of mowing the lawn? Lots of things like that. And you're gonna realize that you love me. And maybe you're gonna feel badly, because you never told me. But don't - I know that you love me. So don't ever do that to yourself, all right?”

72. “May 23rd. My first batch of subjects arrived today, and I have to admit that I am very excited. This could be the dawn of a new age. Nuclear power is meaningless in a world where a virus can kill an entire population and leave its wealth intact.”

UMA THURMAN

77. Her film career included adaptations of works by Charles Dickens, Sinclair Lewis, George Bernard Shaw, W. Somerset Maugham, Damon Runyon – and, of course, Shakespeare.
JEAN SIMMONS

78. “It is clear that we are just an advanced breed of primates on a minor planet orbiting around a very average star, in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. But ever since the dawn of civilization, people have craved for an understanding of the underlying order of the world. There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe. And what can be more special than that there is no boundary? And there should be no boundary to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there is life, there is hope.”

79. This actress said, “"To sit out the McCarthy era in a house on Rodeo Drive as [the wife of a major MGM star] is not so bad. But the atmosphere that prevailed eventually destroyed my marriage. My ideas ran against the political currents of the time. By 1957, we were divorced."
BETSY BLAIR

80. “John, the kind of control you're attempting simply is ... it's not possible. If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life will not be contained.

JEFF GOLDBLUM

81. She received her only Oscar nomination in competition with two other actresses from the same movie. (None of them ever won.)

GREGORY PECK

83. She served as matron of honor at the second wedding of the actor in Clue #53.

88. “You know what I'm realizing? My life is just going to go. Like that. This series of milestones. Getting married. Having kids. Getting divorced. The time that we thought you were dyslexic. When I taught you how to ride a bike. Getting divorced ... again. Getting my master’s degree. Finally getting the job I wanted. Sending Samantha off to college. Sending you off to college. You know what's next? Huh? It's my f**king funeral! Just go, and leave my picture!”

All I know is that I can't get a record contract, we cannot get a record contract unless we take those tapes to the record company. And granted, the tapes themselves are, ah, uh, um, oh, you own them, all right, but the magic that is on those tapes, that f**king heart and soul that we put onto those tapes, that is ours and you don't own that. Now I need to take that magic and get it over the record company. And they're waiting for us, we were supposed to be there a half hour ago. We look like a**holes, man.”
JOHN C REILLY

91. Joan Crawford accused this younger actress of “setting the cause of Hollywood glamor back 20 years” by accepting an Oscar in a home-made dress.
JOANNE WOODWARD
92. “I don't know if you'd be particularly interested in hearing anything about me. My life, I mean. Most of it doesn't add up to much that I could relate as a way of life that you'd approve of…. I'd like to be able to tell you why, but I don't really... I mean, I move around a lot because things tend to get bad when I stay. And I'm looking ... for auspicious beginnings, I guess.... I'm trying to, you know, imagine your half of this conversation. My feeling is, that if you could talk, we probably wouldn't be talking. That's pretty much how it got to be before I left.”
JACK NICHOLSON
93. The film version of a Broadway hit ended with a “curtain call” in which this actress gave the girl playing her daughter a well-deserved spanking.

96. “Sondheim! Send in the clowns!”

This is Mel Brooks, who was married to Anne Bancroft, who co-starred in The Miracle Worker with Patty Duke.

I feel so stupid for missing this. I even thought to myself that Diane Cilento was once married to Sean Connery, which of course links with Kevin Costner for The Untouchables.

Oh, look. They're toppling like dominoes.

I really thought you were going to hit it when you started focusing on Jack Cassidy.

Look up a couple I KNEW I knew

14. “Well, if I was gonna kill you, I wouldn't do a dumb thing like hitting you on the head. First of all, I don't like the fingerprint angle. Of course, I could always wear gloves. Press your hands against the pipe after you were dead and make you look like a suicide. Except it don't seem hardly likely that you'd beat yourself to death with a club. I'd murder you so it didn't look like murder.”

HUME CRONYN in Shadow of a Doubt

That gives us

14. HUME CRONYN was married to Jessica Tandy, winner for Driving Miss Daisy with 98. MORGAN FREEMAN


And I was looking for this guy:

52. “Oh, you got a letter? I got run over! Helen gets her hair chopped off, Julie gets a body in her trunk, and you get a letter? That's balanced!”

RYAN PHILLIPPE

52. RYAN PHILLIPE was married to Reese Witherspoon, winner for Walk the Line with 42. JOAQUIN PHOENIX

Was also looking for this one:

72. “May 23rd. My first batch of subjects arrived today, and I have to admit that I am very excited. This could be the dawn of a new age. Nuclear power is meaningless in a world where a virus can kill an entire population and leave its wealth intact.”

SINEAD CUSACK

for

72. SINEAD CUSACK married to Jeremy Irons, winner for Reversal of Fortune with 46. GLENN CLOSE


53. RONALD REAGAN was married to Jane Wyman, winner for Johnny Belinda with 12. LEW AYERS


70. ROBERT WALKER was married to Jennifer Jones, winner for Song of Bernadette with 8. LEE J COBB

93. The film version of a Broadway hit ended with a “curtain call” in which this actress gave the girl playing her daughter a well-deserved spanking.

Could this be The Bad Seed? It would give us NANCY KELLY to go with Edmond O'Brien, who won for The Barefoot Contessa with 7. AVA GARDNER


29. DINA MERRILL was married to Cliff Robertson, who won for Charly with 39. CLAIRE BLOOM

87. On one of my least favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone, he played a Confederate soldier who has a chance to defeat the entire Union army, but won’t do it because he refused to traffic with the Devil.


I just realized this is GARY MERRILL

51. ZSA ZSA GABOR married to George Sanders, who won for All About Eve with 87. GARY MERRILL

VANESSA REDGRAVE?


This has to be correct because she was in Howards End with Emma Thompson, who was married to 67. KENNETH BRANAGH.

And Gary Merrill was married to Bette Davis who was in Dangerous with Franchot Tone.

I don't see it, but I would think that Frank would figure out a way to get Robert Stephens and Elsa Lanchester into this puzzle.

I thought Robert Stephens would have made things too obvious. As for Elsa Lanchester ... are you sure she isn't here? Not saying she is but ... are you sure?

AND HERE SHE IS!!!


20. “I'm not one to use hyperbole, ladies and gentlemen, but I'll tell you this, for the first time in my life I had the caca scared out of me!

ELSA LANCHESTER - Murder by Death!

So, 20. ELSA LANCHESTER, married to Charles Laughton who won for Six Wives of Henry VIII with ???? I suspect the co-start is among the unanswered clues.

Joanne Woodward, Michael Fassbender, Kay Kendall....

I'm going with movies that included a real life romance for $200, Tangredi.


I am not sure Matches Made in Heaven works ....Montgomery Clift? Karl Malden?

I am wondering if it is stuff in the sky ...

Clift - A Place in the Sun
Paul Bettany - After the Rain

but I am not sure this holds up.

I am at a complete loss here.


I'm still taking credit for the Tangredi. (Well, I always take credit for "the Tangredi". I named it, people!) I didn't read the whole thing, but I knew that with so many actor couples that it had to be something about husbands and wives. I must admit I just read a few of the answer posts, so I "could" have figured it out, I just didn't have want to.....ha!

If I have time today, I will do a proper consolidation, since we haven't had one yet and I have to figure out where the completion for Elsa-Charles and Henry VIII comes from.
