WTG, Melly! That means one actress played the mother of her real-life husband (icky).

I don’t have anything helpful to add, but I have an off-topic question. I just noticed that Helena Bonham Carter plays Princess Margaret in The Crown. I really liked Bonham Carter as Elizabeth Duchess of York in The King’s Speech. Frank, have other actresses played a mother and daughter?
Turns out my question wasn’t really off-topic. Since that’s out of the way now, can you answer the question?
I can't think of one offhand, other than cases of one actress playing two generations in the same film (such as Frances Farmer in Come and Get It.)
Here's a lowbrow one: Helen Slater was the title character in Supergirl, and she plays Eliza Danvers, Supergirl's mother, in the Supergirl TV series.

Patrick Stewart played Richard the Lionhearted in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, and an older Stewart played Henry II in a TV movie version of The Lion in Winter (opposite Glenn Close).

Am I correct that we still have one incorrect definite and one of the question marks is wrong.

1. LAUREN BACALL married to Humphrey Bogart (81. MARJORIE MAIN in Dead End)
60. JAMES BROLIN married to Barbra Streisand (1. LAUREN BACALL in The Mirror Has Two Faces)
95. SUZANNE PLESHETTE married to Troy Donahue (38. DOROTHY McGUIRE in A Summer Place)
99. JENNIFER JONES married to Robert Walker (43. MARION LORNE in Strangers on a Train)
41. RHEA PERLMAN married to Danny DeVito (70. ANNE RAMSEY Throw Mamma from the Train)
16. TIMOTHY HUTTON married to Debra Winger (72. SHIRLEY MacLAINE in Terms of Endearment)
90. NATALIE WOOD married to Robert Wagne (53. MARY ASTOR in A Kiss Before Dying)
57. ROBERT WAGNER married to Natalie Wood, (18. MAUREEN O'HARA in Miracle on 34th Street)
21. EMMA THOMPSON married to Kenneth Branagh, (59. JULIE CHRISTIE in Hamlet)
78. CLARK GABLE married to Carole Lombard (23. ALICE BRADY in My Man Godfrey)
98. LAURENCE OLIVIER married to Vivien Leigh, (12. BARBARA O'NEIL in GWTW)
13. VIRGINIA CHERRILL was married to Cary Grant (71. ETHEL BARRYMORE in None But the Lonely Heart)
5. RITA HAYWORTH married to Dick Haymes (83. FAY BAINTER in State Fair)
84. HANK AZARIA married to Helen Hunt (32. KATHLEEN TURNER in Peggy Sue Got Married)
34. RICHARD JOHNSON married to Kim Novak (65. BETTY FIELD in Picnic)
10. RIP TORN married to Geraldine Page (63. UNA MERKEL in Summer and Smoke)
100. PAUL NEWMAN married to Joanne Woodward (15. SYLVIA SIDNEY in Summer Dreams, Winter Dreams)
37. BOBBY DARIN married to Sandra Dee (75. LANA TURNER in Imitation of life)
62. FRANK SINATRA married to Mia Farrow (9. MAUREEN O’SULLIVAN in Hannah and Her Sisters)
55. KAY KENDALL married to Rex Harrison (8. GLADYS COOPER in My Fair Lady)
22. JOEL McCREA married to Frances Dee (79. SPRING BYINGTON in Little Women)

6. DICK POWELL married to June Allyson, in Little Women with 53. MARY ASTOR. This might be wrong because we’ve already got Astor as Mom to Robert Wagner and I think that’s a better match. And for it to be the second match for Astor, it would have to be the other way.

68. BARBARA STANWYCK married to Robert Taylor (17. ALLA NAZIMOVA – some Nazi movie I can’t remember – she’s in a concentration camp, she’s a musician or something musical). I was going crazy trying to see how we were going to find Tyrone Power for Blood and Sand. :D :D :D

Am I going crazy or was Robert Taylor an answer in this puzzle to give us Judith Anderson as Stanwyck’s mother in Martha Ivers?

86. ED HARRIS married to Amy Madigan (44. ELLEN BURSTYN …..)

in that movie where Gene Hackman leaves Burstyn for Ann-Margret. I think Madigan got an Oscar nom.

Box Office Poison = flops?. Not GWTW or Stare Fair...
Don't worry too much about the title of the game. That was a private joke of mine, referencing a hit song, which has no value as a clue.

My first thought was Ernie K. Doe's "Mother in Law," but it doesn't reference poison. The LSWE-meister is curious...

Lots of possibilities: 14. MADONNA married to Sean Penn, 24. ANNE BANCROFT married to Mel Brooks, 30. ANNETTE BENING married to Warren Beatty, 42. ALI McGRAW married to Steve McQueen, 48. ANGELINA JOLIE married to good ol' Billy Bored, 49. JERRY STILLER married to Anne Meara.

I thought I found a match: 51. RONALD REAGAN married to Jane Wyman (69. AGNES MOOREHEAD in Johnny Belinda), but Wikipedia says Agnes was Jane's aunt.

Jane Wyman is driving me crazy. I'm not familiar enough with Nancy Davis's movies to come up with anything there.

I am taking a break - I know that some of the matches we've got may not work because they use actresses in the same way twice.

But I am stuck - I KNOW we've got some obvious that I am just missing.

And we STILL don't have the incorrect one identified or the question marks figured out.

Well, I think it's only fair to tell you that the two clues involved are 39 and 89. I just rechecked my facts and they're right. (Peggy Ashcroft does have a memorial plaque in Westminster Abbey, but she is not interred there.)

I am taking a break - I know that some of the matches we've got may not work because they use actresses in the same way twice.

But I am stuck - I KNOW we've got some obvious that I am just missing.

And we STILL don't have the incorrect one identified or the question marks figured out.
Well, I think it's only fair to tell you that the two clues involved are 39 and 89. I just rechecked my facts and they're right. (Peggy Ashcroft does have a memorial plaque in Westminster Abbey, but she is not interred there.)
Thanks. I can stop tearing my hair out trying to find the Diane Cilento movie. :D

How about Daniel Craig for 89? Gives us Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon's daughter in The Lovely Bones.

AND for 39, how about Sybil Thorndyke? I think that will solve Jane Wyman - IIRC Thorndyke is her mom in Stage Fright.

Frank said that the actors who were used twice were in different capacities, and I already matched Natalie with Maureen O'Hara in Miracle on 34th Street, which seems a more famous mother/daughter movie. This could be an accidental double.
