I'm not sure about this one. I don't really think of Nader as an "environmental activist."
23. BTK guy is named DENNIS RADER.

I am betting our activist is WINONA LaDuke for

38. WINONA LaDuke + 23. Dennis RADER = Winona Ryder (Jo)

You got the basic idea on this one very quickly, but the Tangredi still needs some refinement. Look at the instructions and the various matches that have already been made.

I didn't get a chance to comment on the consolidation or the answers that came after, so here goes:

#50 - dammit, there are TWO people who fit this clue!
Well, then. If it's not David Dubinsky, then it must be SIDNEY HILLMAN.


13. LILLIAN Wald + 50. Sidney HILLMAN = Lillian Hellman (Foxes)

Since there are 30 ways to switch the six vowels, this has to be correct. And I am amazed such a game could even be put together with recognizable names....

I also think Frank might have said to look at the wrong answers. And is there something in the order of the first name as well?

Also, this one won't because 50 isn't Dubinsky but Hillman.

50. David Dubinsky + 4. Yul Brynner = David Brenner (Tonight)

BUT, the match is too good, so one of the missing answers has to be a David

This is JULE STYNE, who goes with Oliver Wendell Holmes for Oliver Stone (Wall Street).

And I now know why there were only 60 clues in this puzzle instead of the usual 100 or so in Frank's puzzles. Clever Tangredi, Frank.

If this is Samuel de Champlain, it could match with Bob Feller for Samuel Fuller. Fuller was called both Sam and Samuel at different ties in his career.

Should have known 31. It's DOYLE BRUNSON.

Could Frank possibly be referring to Charles Dickens by his pen name, Boz, in #1? I can't think of any other author who had characters with those names.

If there's a Charles among the unknown clues, we could get Charles Bronson (Dirty).
