Lola Falana -  Arturo,  I had no idea what the first clue was and for  "____ Grange" all I could think of was Red Grange, the legendary football player.  If we want more participation, we need more easily recognizable clues.

Next: 

Singer Who Gave Us "Oh, Sweet Pea, C'mon And Dance With Me" + Oscar Winning Actor In "Judgement At Nuremberg" + Paul Newman And Patricia Neal Starred In "_____" + Bob Hope Shared A Bed With Trigger In "_____ Of Paleface"

Miles, i didn’t see these clues as difficult; I’ve definitely tried to make them more accessible recently.  Obviously, not everyone is going to know every clue every time.  “When they go low” has become a popular catchphrase in the last several years; I hear it on tv at least once a week.  I know of a town named La Grange  And of a Z. Z. Top song of that name.  Not that esoteric.

Gena Rowlands - Nice clues, Lav.

Lavender, I suppose we could do film titles.  The only thing that I would ask is that before posting clues, the poster states whether it is a film title or a celebrity name.  I would also hope that the film title would be of the classic era vintage.  Remember, this is a classic film message board and most people who view these threads are the same ones who watch classic movies on TCM.

Next:  This is a celebrity name.  This person has been seen on TCM many times.

Line From Old Song, "Does Your Mother Know You're Out , _________, Does She Know That I'm About To Steal Ya" + Early Pacino Film "The Panic In Needle _______"+ Tom Selleck Film "______ Alibi"
