57. ROBERT WAGNER married to Natalie Wood, (92. CLAIRE TREVOR in Marjorie Morning star)
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.
Yeah - I said that some of the moms were duplicates and that would not work. The June Allyson - Mary Astor - Little Women, for example. The Kiss before Dying is too good to be wrong.

I think we have two Fay Bainters, too. I am too scrambled to think.

Did we ever get the documentary maker?

That might clarify something.

I have no clue who it might be

Well, I'll be damned! All these decades I thought the opening line of the song was "The word is poison I know." Now I discover it's "The worst person I know."

Oops.
LOL! If it were possible to award JJC points before the LSWE begins, you'd have a head start on the field...

I just realized we didn't have this one.

14. Madonna married to Sean Penn (84. Millie Perkins in At Close Range).

Second use of Perkins, each in a different way.

LEE GRANT. Down and Out in America is the documentary.

SO....

58. PAULA PRENTISS married to Richard Benjamin (19. LEE GRANT in Portnoy's Complaint.

We still need to figure out if Dick Powell is here for Joan Blondell or June Allyson (other than the Mary Astor match).

So, we ARE good for Mary Astor. :D

I am figuring that the Rita Hayworth-Dick Haymes-Fay Bainter in State Fair was probably a duplicate that Frank had not anticipated. Because the Orson Welles marriage is, well, the Orson Welles marriage. :D

Glad you enjoyed it.

Oddly enough, I don't have another one ready to go just yet. I have the matches, I just have to write 150 clues.

150. Ye gods!
