69. JMMQ: This choreographer’s best-known work, Le Jeune Homme et la Mort, told the story of a young man driven to suicide by his unfaithful lover.
ALVIN AILEY? AUGUST BOURNONVILLE?

How about ROLAND PETIT?

87. ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY = 69. PETIT + 4. PRINCE

I was going crazy to make Terrell Davis into Floyd Little.
Well why wouldn’t it be LITTLE? He was the RB I was trying to think of. The question suggests that he was like seventh all time when he retired and that’s a relatively low career number. I think when Davis retired a lot of people were beyond that mark.
Turns out, Terrell Davis played seven season to Little's nine. So, 15. is FLOYD LITTLE

35. This French-American artist gained renown for her installations and monumental sculptures, especially a 30-feet high spider made of steel, bronze and marble.

LOUISE's last name is spelled BOURGEOIS

So, who would match up with 69. PETIT and 35. BOURGEOIS? Now that we have....

87. ANTOINE DE SAINT-EXUPERY = 15. LITTLE + 4. PRINCE

Is Karl Marx anywhere?

ANTHONY WOOD
WOOD CARVER is a more likely phrase than MARBLE CARVER. Other phrases that BBs have suggested: WILD RIDE, CLAY COURT and HULL HOUSE. That's almost all the missing ones.
