Game #173: Game of Terror

Identify each of the 60 people below. Match them into 30 pairs according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Then match each pair with a word from the Associated Words list.

Alternate matches are probable, but only one combination will allow you to complete the game. While some of the clues may be hard, the Tangredi should not be that hard to spot.

1. He was the only U.S. President born on the Fourth of July.

2. One of only three boxers ever named ‘Sportsman of the Year’ by Sports Illustrated, he was also named ‘Fighter of the Year’ a record six times by The Ring magazine.

3. She “was Twelve Years a Whore, five times a Wife (whereof once to her brother) Twelve Years a Thief, Eight Years a Transported Felon in Virginia, at last grew Rich, liv'd Honest and died a Penitent.” (And what have you been doing with your life?)

4. Fearing that labor activists or disgruntled former employees might try to steal this industrialist’s body, his family had him buried in the middle of the night eight feet underground in a lead-lined mahogany coffin sealed inside a block of concrete covered with railroad ties. (Someone commented that his heirs just wanted to make sure the son-of-a-bitch couldn’t come back.)

5. Now considered one of America’s most influential modernist poets, he committed suicide at the age of 32 by jumping off a steamship into the Gulf of Mexico.

6. This American philosopher famously said that “the moral flabbiness born of the exclusive worship of the bitch-goddess success … is our national disease.” (His brother was no doubt shocked.)

7. DJMQ: Knighted in 1981, this British choreographer first danced with Alicia Markova at the Royal Ballet in the 1930s and went on to found a company with her.

8. In 1901, this German neuropathologist began studying a 51 year-old woman who exhibited odd behavioral symptoms and short-term memory loss and arranged to take possession of her brain after she died. It took a while for the medical community to take note of his discoveries.

9. “March 15, 2015. My whole world stops and crashes down into tiny little pieces.” This tweet, and hundreds more like it, was prompted by a monumental career decision made by this pop star.

10. As you may recall from my last game, Katy Jurado was the first Mexican actress nominated for an Academy Award. Nearly half a century later, this actress became the second.

11. One of the victorious commanders at the Battle of Bunker Hill, he later replaced William Howe as Commander in Chief.

12. After 27 years with CNN, this correspondent made her final broadcast on December 21, 2014.

15. Almost seven decades after the Supreme Court squashed his attempt to overturn Executive Order 9066, the State of California declared an annual “Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution” in his honor.

16. Her most recent reelection bid earned her the highest popular vote total of any candidate in U.S. Senate history.

17. The Impressionist movement began to take shape with the meeting of Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoir, Frederic Bazille, and this Anglo-French painter whose most notable work was a series of landscapes of the River Thames.

18. Though she herself was not indicted, her promoters were charged by the FTC in 2002 with deceptive advertising, billing, and collection practices. (She should have seen that coming.)

19. This American is best remembered as co-inventor of the gyrocompass.

20. “Hope for the best,” counseled Mel Brooks, “Expect the worst/You could be Tolstoy/Or” this once-insanely-popular-but-now-out-of-print American novelist.

21. A major sex symbol of the 1960s, he first gained widespread notice in a small role in a film adaptation of a novel by the writer in the preceding clue – a shocking scene in which he beat up one of the film’s main actresses.

22. This Scottish-born singer became the leading soprano at the Opera Comique in Paris, where she originated roles in works by Debussy and Massenet.

23. This stripper’s dalliance with a powerful Arkansas congressman earned her a spot on a list of Top Ten U.S. Sex Scandals.

24. My college roommate was one of the many people who saw this dispensationalist’s 1970 best-seller as a road map to the end of the world.

25. Yves Saint-Laurent once described this model as his “dream woman,” but she became equally well-known for her philanthropic work and her marriage.

26. Aristophanes and Thucydides didn’t have much good to say about this Athenian political leader who rose to power after the death of his rival Pericles.

27. This astronaut served as Command Module Pilot during the first joint U.S.-Soviet space venture and subsequently commanded three Space Shuttle missions.

28. This powerful sorceress was the leading ally and protector of Princess Ozma, but was also extremely protective of her bunny and paper doll subjects.

29. Earlier this month, the iconic cultural magazine that he co-founded and continues to publish celebrated its 50th anniversary.

30. This string theorist is the senior of the three Americans who were awarded the Nobel Prize for their discovery of asymptotic freedom. (No, I don’t know what that means.)

31. Of the five libel suits filed by this former security guard, the only one that did not end in a settlement was the one against the Atlanta Constitution – which, he said, “pretty much started the whirlwind.”

32. As a college player, this linebacker won the first two Buck Buchanan Awards and later became Appalachian State University’s first inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame. (He also appeared in three NFL Pro Bowls.)

33. This lyricist met his longtime songwriting partner in 1967 when they both answered an advertisement in a British music industry paper; to date, however, only one of them has made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

34. In 1988, he became the first Asian American playwright to win a Tony Award.

35. Before taking on her current gig, she served as America’s first female Solicitor General.

36. This actor had his most notable film role in a 1982 science fiction classic, but he became even better known on television for introducing himself and his siblings.

37. He gained prominence as the first professor of psychology in the United States and the publisher of Science magazine, but his dismissal from Columbia – prompted by his public opposition to the World War II draft – led many universities to adopt the tenure system.

38. Another veteran of the Battle of Bunker Hill, he later led a protest against debt collection that turned into an armed uprising.

39. As far as I can tell, she is the only popular cookbook author and cooking show host to have once worked at the OMB. (She is also no relation to Ava Gardner.)

40. His refusal to have sex with his wife is a major plot point in a Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the 1950s.

41. As Commissioner of the Sick and Wounded, this Scottish doctor was instrumental in persuading the Royal Navy to adopt citrus juice as a means of preventing scurvy.

42. In 1950, this Polish Jewish immigrant and his younger brother founded a record company that would soon become instrumental in the development of soul music and rock and roll.

49. Known as the “Bentham of Hallamshire,” this British philosopher is best known for his 1821 “Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions.” (Read it lately? It's a real page-turner.)

50. He was a victorious U.S. general during the Mexican War, but as a Confederate general he suffered a major defeat at the Battle of Westport; after the war, he took his remaining troops to Mexico rather than surrender.

51. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his classic 1944 novel Journey in the Dark. (Yeah, I don’t remember it, either.)

52. The murder of this civil rights leader led to the conviction of his white supremacist killer – more than 30 years later.

53. Describing the work of this German contemporary – who has variously been associated with expressionism, surrealism, cubism, futurism, and abstract art – Marchel Duchamp observed that “most of his compositions show at the first glance a plain, naive expression, found in children's drawings.”

54. This serial killer – whose complete body count may never be known – called himself "the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you'll ever meet" and one of his own defense attorneys described him as “the very definition of heartless evil.”

57. In his breakout film role, he played a character loosely inspired by a real ruler of the Protodynastic Period of Upper Egypt. (Verrrrrrrrrrry loosely.)

58. Early in his career, this great jazz trumpeter had a notorious fight with Cab Calloway that ended with him stabbing Calloway in the leg with a knife. (Unsurprisingly, Calloway then fired him.)

59. In the speech that helped secure him the Presidential nomination, this candidate warned the delegates, “You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns….”

31. Of the five libel suits filed by this former security guard, the only one that did not end in a settlement was the one against the Atlanta Constitution – which, he said, “pretty much started the whirlwind.”

Probably Richard Jewell

33. This lyricist met his longtime songwriting partner in 1967 when they both answered an advertisement in a British music industry paper; to date, however, only one of them has made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Yeah, considering that there are only 60 clues and 30 pairs. I don't recall seeing a Tangredi game with so few clues. I know that the shortest one I ever composed had only 77 clues--both "Switcheroo" and "Mixed Media" fit that bill.

I don't recall all the specifics of the burial, but George Pullman had something very similar (or exactly like this). Is there a keyword that belongs to Liv Ullman?

14. He holds the Number 5 position on the NHL all-time penalty list with 3300 minutes, as well as Red Wings records for most penalty minutes, both overall and in a single season.

Robert isn't exactly a common surname without the S at the end, which is why I am sure about this match:

55. I(RENE) JOLIOT-CURIE + 14. BOB P(ROBERT) = RENE ROBERT, onetime star of the BUFFALO Sabres
