26. Jack Benny in Buck Benny Rides Again

125. Jimmy Stewart in Destry Rides Again

Anna Neagle, James McAvoy, and Liv Ullmann haven't been used at all yet.

Still looking for a fifth match for Gary Cooper

I count 7 people who've been used twice, so four more of those.

ANNA NEAGLE was Victoria the Great, which would make that a triple.

James McAvoy voiced Gnomeo in Gnomeo & Juliet, Arthur in Arthur Christmas, and played Victor in Victor Frankenstein.

Liv Ullman was Anna in The Passion of Anna, (Is Jim Caviezel on the list) and Joan in Pope Joan

Hey, krox, totally not trying to be snarky, but your comment about Caviezel in this post makes me think you might not know how to search a page for character strings. In Firefox, for instance, you can hold Ctrl-F to bring up a search window. If you then put in, for instance, caviez, it would show you every instance of that character string on that page, and then you can scroll through them.

Very useful for Frank puzzles. But with great power comes great responsibility. :)

Every actor has been used!

There are now 39 pairs, 18 triples, and 1 quad. So only two more matches remain to be found. Frank never mentioned the quad, so it's OK if necessary to change it to a triple and use Donlevy, Redford, Malkovich or Powell elsewhere.

Frank did say he'd never heard of the Great Buck Howard, so I think that one's out of the quad. Doesn't necessarily mean Malkovich is used elsewhere, though, since he is on the list for Being John Malkovich.

Wallace Beery appeared in Viva Villa, which makes that a triple and I believe finishes the puzzle.
