100. She completes a list that includes Willem Dafoe, Daniel Day Lewis, Kirk Douglas, Jose Ferrer, Ed Harris, Marcia Gay Harden, Salma Hayek, and Anthony Quinn.

All of these actors were nominated for Oscars for playing artists.

Van Gogh, Christy Brown, Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Pollock, Lee Krasner, Kahlo, Gauguin.

That said, I have NO idea who the actress is.

14. As children in the late 1950s-early 60s, they each appeared as guests on a popular TV adventure series starring their father.
BEAU & JEFF BRIDGES


63. “Make no mistake, I shall regret the absence of your keen mind; unfortunately, it is inseparable from an extremely disturbing body.”
GARY COOPER

64. Each of these bandleaders appeared as themselves in a variety of 1940s musicals, including one based on the film referenced in the preceding clue.
BENNY GOODMAN
Question 64 refers to EACH of these bandleaders, and the answer is Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. They appeared together in I Dood It, which had the same general plot hook as Ball of Fire.

Now it's interesting that Beau and Jeff Bridges only appeared together in one film, The Fabulous Baker Boys. In addition to I Dood it, the Dorseys appeared together in The Fabulous Dorseys, a biography of themselves. Now this can't be a coincidence.

Bobby Van wasn't in many movies but he starred in The Affairs of Dobie Gillis.
And Joan Fontaine was in The Affairs of Susan.
28. He and Paul Newman were the first actors to receive “staggered-but-equal” billing in a Hollywood film, with one name appearing to the right and higher than the other.
This isn't Redford but Steve McQueen in The Towering Inferno.

McQueen was The Cincinnati Kid.
Gene Wilder was The Frisco Kid.

Orson Welles was Citizen Kane.
Laura Dern was Citizen Ruth.

Cheating a bit since this is a remake but

William Powell was My Man Godfrey
David Niven was My Man Godfrey

Since there are 20 triples here, some of the pairs I've identified might also be two-thirds of a triple.

36. He drove a chariot in The Ten Commandments, rode a racehorse in A Day at the Races, and fought gladiators in Spartacus – but you won’t find his name in the credits for any of them.

87. “He's dead. I'm crippled. You're lost. Do you suppose it's always like that? I mean war.”
36 is Woody Strode, who was in Sergeant Rutledge. And Gary Cooper was Sergeant York.

87. is Richard Burton in The Longest Day.

Steve Reeves was Hercules Unchained.
Jamie Foxx was Django Unchained.

Reeves was also (I cheated on this one) in a movie called Sandokan the Great, which would match with Richard Burton as Alexander the Great.

I'm not sure if this works or not, but Henry Fonda was Young Mr. Lincoln and Gene Wilder was Young Frankenstein.

Joseph Fiennes was Shakespeare in Love. George Segal was Blume in Love.

If Matt Damon is on there for Saving Private Ryan, then the match could be with Saving Mr. Banks. The Mr. Banks referred to is Emma Thompson's father, who was played by Colin Ferrell.

If Sean Connery is on there for Finding Forrester, then the match could be with Ellen de Generes for Finding Dory.

And if Michael Caine is on there for Get Carter, the match could be with Steve Carell for Get Smart. All of which assume that these actors are among the unknown clues.

The Tangredi needs a bit of definition/refinement, but that will come soon enough. I knew the Dorseys would give the show away!

102. is John Heard, from Prison Break. He played Governor Frank Tancredi.
Heard was in Cutter's Way; Al Pacino was in Carlito's Way.

I think the refinement here is that the actor has to play the duplicated name. Thus Heard was Cutter and Pacino was Carlito.

100. She completes a list that includes Willem Dafoe, Daniel Day Lewis, Kirk Douglas, Jose Ferrer, Ed Harris, Marcia Gay Harden, Salma Hayek, and Anthony Quinn.

All of these actors were nominated for Oscars for playing artists.

Van Gogh, Christy Brown, Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Pollock, Lee Krasner, Kahlo, Gauguin.

That said, I have NO idea who the actress is.
Blatant lookup, but it appears to be Isabelle Adjani, who was nominated for Camille Claudel in 1988.

She was my first thought of that but she wasn't a painter. I came up with Alicia Vikander after going through names. Also a blatant lookup.

MARLON BRANDO

One minute later, I leave the bathroom, and a minute after that, you enter the bathroom. And that's when I'm starting to dress. Three minutes later, I'm having my coffee, and a minute after that at seven twelve, you leave the bathroom. At seven thirteen, I put on my eggs, and I leave to finish dressing. Then you put on your shoes, and take off my eggs at seven sixteen. At seven seventeen, you start to shave. At seven eighteen, I eat my eggs, and at seven twenty-one, I'm in the bathroom fixing my hair, and at seven twenty-four, you're in the kitchen putting on your eggs. At seven twenty-five, you make your bed. Seven twenty-six, I make my bed. And then while you're eating your eggs, I take out the papers and cans. At seven twenty-nine, you're washing the dishes, and at seven thirty, we're all finished. You see?”

It's no wonder you all emigrated to America, because they wouldn't have you in England. You're a lot of savages, that's what you all are. A bunch of bloody savages. A plague on you. I'll be back. “

*52. STEVE REEVES

53. “Someone hurt my friend Lloyd, and not just on his face. He is having a hard time forgiving the person who hurt him. Do you, do you know what that means? To forgive?

TOMMY & JIMMY DORSEY
