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.”

This is ROWAN ATKINSON as Zazu from "The Lion King".

Could Richard Harris be on the list for "A Man Called Horse"?

Harris is on the list for Horse.

And Atkinson is on the list for Mr. Bean's Holiday, which matches with Jacques Tati in Mr. Hulot's Holiday.

PETER SELLERS

98. The shortest road from Vidal Sassoon to Rodgers & Hammerstein is through this actress.
98 is Nancy Kwan, who was in The World of Suzie Wong
Sellers was in The World of Henry Orient

I don't think that Sellers is on here for Dr. Strangelove. First, it's not the entire title of the film, and second, I don't think that Frank is including titles like Mr., Dr., etc. which are really part of the person's name. He did an entire Mr. and Mrs. puzzle once if I remember.

86. On screen, she had the unusual distinction of playing love interest to both Marlon Brando and Sabu.
This is Jean Simmons, who was Young Bess, making that a triple.

You're right, although I think I did slip up once here. Borderline case.

25. “With the world so set on tearing itself apart, it don't seem like such a bad thing to me to want to put a little bit of it back together.”

119. “They've committed a murder! And it's not like taking a trolley ride together where they can get off at different stops. They're stuck with each other and they got to ride all the way to the end of the line and it's a one-way trip and the last stop is the cemetery.”
HARVEY KEITEL? EDWARD G. ROBINSON?
Working backwards to get this one. 119 is Edward G. Robinson. That's from Double Indemnity, and Robinson was in a movie called The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (I'm kind of curious how that got past the censors in 1940).

The logical match to that is The Amazing Spider-Man, so I went looking for an Andrew Garfield film, and here it is. The quote is from Hacksaw Ridge.

5. “King Kong ain't got s**t on me!”
DENZEL WASHINGTON

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

49. “Oklahoma Kid. That's me. I'm the Oklahoma Kid. You f**kin' varmint! Dance. Dance. Yahoo, ya mother**ker!”
JOE PESCI

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.”
TOM HANKS (or FRED ROGERS?)

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.
RICHARD BURTON (twice?)

65. "Rob, top five musical crimes perpetuated by Stevie Wonder in the '80s and '90s. Go! Sub-question: Is it in fact unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter-day sins? Is it better to burn out or fade away?”
JACK BLACK

66. In addition to her Oscars and her National Medal of the Arts, this actress was named a Dame Commander of the British Empire and a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.
OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND??

67. "Couldn't you like me, just me the way I am? When we first started out, it was so good; we had fun. And ... and then you started in on the clothes. Well, I'll wear the darn clothes if you want me to, if you'll just, just like me.”
KIM NOVAK

81. “Just take this pen, please, and write me?”
IONE SKYE

85. “You know what? I respect women! I love women! I respect them so much that I completely stay away from them!“
STEVE CARELL

88. This actor is a licensed pilot and has black belts in budo-jujitsu, capoeira, hapkido, and kendo – but it was another hobby of his that nearly killed him in 1988.
GARY BUSEY

95. “Oh come off it, Major! You put me right off my fresh fried lobster, do you realize that? I'm now going to go back to my bed, I'm going to put away the best part of a bottle of scotch. 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. But you really put me off. I mean you ... you're what we call a regular army clown.”
DONALD SUTHERLAND

99. “We had different needs. I needed him to treat me decently and get a job, and he needed to empty my bank account and leave. “
HELEN SLATER

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.”
JEREMY IRONS

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.’”

These confirm a few of my guesses and add another match.

Joe Pesci - My Cousin Vinny
Olivia de Havilland - My Cousin Rachel

Steve Carell - Get Smart
Michael Caine - Get Carter

Helen Slater - The Legend of Billie Jean
Will Smith - The Legend of Bagger Vance
Kim Novak - The Legend of Lylah Clare
(I guess Frank couldn't fit Klinton Spillsbury on the list for The Legend of the Lone Ranger)

Gary Busey - The Buddy Holly Story (making that a triple)

Colin Farrell - Saving Mr. Banks
Matt Damon - Saving Private Ryan

Not Burton but Robert Stephens, whose third wife was Maggie Smith. He was in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, making that a triple.

Don't think I didn't think of it!

Colin Farrell - Saving Mr. Banks
Matt Damon - Saving Private Ryan
Since Farrell is defensible, I will step in and say that I didn't intend to use him in my 'Saving' group. I wanted to include Saving Mr. Banks, but he didn't technically play Mr. Banks.

94. The mysterious man he played in a 1998 film was similar to – but far less sinister than – the mysterious man played by Sterling Holloway on an episode of The Twilight Zone.
I think that Frank is going for Jim Carrey in The Cable Guy here, but The Cable Guy came out in 1996. The Truman Show came out in 1998 but isn't as good a fit for the clue.

If Carrey is the answer, he was in Bruce Almighty, which would match with 85. Steve Carell in Evan Almighty (and set up another possible match for Carrey if there's another actor in a The __________ Show movie).

I think you have the Sterling Holloway character right: the mysterious television repairman in "What's in the Box?" Jim Carrey in The Cable Guy was a cable installer, not a tv repairman.

There's another actor who played a mysterious television repairman in a 1998 film - quite a popular film, too. And his powers were just as mysterious.
