73. “What the cops never figured out, and what I know now, was that these men would never break, never lie down, never bend over for anybody. Anybody.”

74. This star’s screen spouses have included Julianne Moore and the actor in the preceding clue.
I don't know who 73 is, but I have a feeling that 74 is Annette Bening, who was involved with Julianne Moore in The Kids Are All Right (I'm not sure if they were actually married or not). I'm pretty sure that Bening is in the puzzle because she was also in Being Julia, which would match with Being John Malkovich.

I'm not seeing any matches, but off the top of my head I am seeing possibilities for a lot of them that maybe someone else can come up with a match for:

Meryl Streep - Sophie's choice

Paul Muni - Life of Emile Zola, Story of Louis Pasteur

Bridges Brothers - Fabulous Baker Boys

Renee Zellweger - Bridget Jones's Diary

Steve McQueen - The Thomas Crown Affair

Peter Sellers - Dr. Strangelove

Mia Farrow - Rosemary's Baby

Oscar Isaac - Inside Llewyn Davis

Emily Blunt - Mary Poppins Returns

Shirley Maclaine - Sweet Charity

Alan Alda - The Seduction of Joe Tynan

11. Jean Arthur = The Devil and Miss Jones
82. Edward Arnold = The Devil and Daniel Webster

120. Though they achieved film stardom at about the same time, he never appeared on screen with his first wife – perhaps remembering how she had stolen a big Broadway musical out from under him.

I will bet this is ELLIOTT GOULD

Which gives us The Devil and Max Devlin

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.
I thought this was Strode, especially since Sergeant Rutledge is a perfect match with Sergeant York. But it's Richard Farnsworth, who appeared in The Straight Story, which matches with Jimmy Stewart in The Stratton Story and The Glenn Miller Story. And I'm sure there's another _________ Story with another actor somewhere for a triple.

If Sergeant Rutledge isn't on there, the most likely other match is Steve Martin for Sergeant Bilko.

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.
And Adjani was in The Story of Adele H., which matches with Paul Muni in The Story of Louis Pasteur.

62. This French actor/writer/director was selected by Entertainment Weekly as one of the 50 Greatest Directors of All Time – even those his body of work consisted of only six feature-length comedies.
This is Jacques Tati, whose best known film is Monsieur Hulot's Holiday. My guess is that one of the answers is Rowan Atkinson for Mr. Bean's Holiday.

I can’t get any matches, so I’ll just post another consolidation…

Identify the 125 actors in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 40 pairs and 20 triples according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself.

Eleven actors will be used twice and one actor will be used five times.

*1. MARLON BRANDO
*2. LAURA DERN

3. “Twelve fox years ago, you made a promise to me, while we were caged inside that fox trap, that if we survived, you would never steal another chicken, turkey, goose, duck, or a squab - whatever they are, and I believed you. Why? Why did you lie to me?”
MERYL STREEP

4. His marriage to another Hollywood star lasted until his death – on their 57th wedding anniversary – in 1990.
HUME CRONYN? JOEL McCREA?

LEO McKERN

13. “Well the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they're above it all. The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can't. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper.”

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

*15. CHARLES LAUGHTON

16. He played the chief villain in the movie from which the above quote is taken.
CEDRIC HARDWICKE

17. “On the surface, everything seems fine. I've got this great guy. And he loves my kid. And he sure does like me a lot. And I can't live like that. It's not the way I'm built.”

JACK BENNY

27. “You realize we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us.”

*30. JOSEPH FIENNES
*31. RICHARD HARRIS

32. In different screen comedies, she posed as the wives of Jason Sudeikis and Adam Sandler.
JENIFER ANISTON?

*33. AL PACINO

34. He said the film he most regretted making was a reboot of an old TV show – but at least it netted him a #1 record.

PETER SELLERS

48. The reason there has never been a film version of The Catcher in the Rye is that the he refused to allow any other screen adaptations of his work after seeing the 1949 movie starring this actress.

50. In 1946 and 1947, this star of movie musicals had the highest salary of any woman in the United States.
GINGER ROGERS? ESTHER WILLIAMS? BETTY GRABLE?

*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? It's a decision we make to release a person from the feelings of anger we have at them. It's strange, but sometimes it's hardest of all to forgive someone we love.”

*56. PETER USTINOV

57. “Yeah, f**k you, too. F**k me? F**k you, F**k you and this whole city and everyone in it. F**k the panhandlers, grubbing for money, and smiling at me behind my back. F**k the squeegee men dirtying up the clean windshield of my car - get a f**king job! F**k the Sikhs and the Pakistanis bombing down the avenues in decrepit cabs, curry steaming out their pores stinking up my day. Terrorists in f**king training. SLOW THE F**K DOWN! F**k the Chelsea boys with their waxed chests and pumped-up biceps”.

58. During his long career, this character actor worked under the direction of Alfred Hitchcock, Ernst Lubitsch, Preston Sturges, Howard Hawks, Sam Wood, Clarence Brown, and – in his Oscar-winning role – George Stevens.
CHARLES COBURN

*59. GENE WILDER

60. Though he earned a knighthood – primarily for his stage work – he never quite lived up to his early promise as “the next Olivier,” and his career came to be eclipsed by that of his third wife.

61. “I want you to remember this word, okay? It's kind of like a code word: Yahoo. Can you remember that?”

And under normal circumstances, you being normally what I would call a very attractive woman, I would have invited you back to share my little bed with me and you might possibly have come.

111. “I can't believe my grandmother actually felt me up.”
MOLLY RINGWALD

112. Another winner of the Triple Crown of Acting, he gave this explanation for why he would turn down a knighthood: "I became an actor to be a rogue and a vagabond and play by my own rules so I don't think it would be apt for the establishment to pull me in as one of their own, for I ain't.”

HARVEY KEITEL? EDWARD G. ROBINSON?

*120. ELLIOTT GOULD

121. “After I killed them, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off me hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions. Shortly thereafter the instructions came through. ‘Get the fuck out of London, youse dumb fucks.’”

I can’t get any matches, so I’ll just post another consolidation…

Identify the 125 actors in the clues below. (Every other clue is a quotation.) Then, match them into 40 pairs and 20 triples according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself.

*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?

F**k the Chelsea boys with their waxed chests and pumped-up biceps”.
