Yes, that's it.  Tom Drake, whose real name was Alfred Alderdice, was billed as Richard Alden when he played Cary Grant's son in "The Howards Of Virginia"  in 1940.  He was billed as Tom Drake in "Two Girls And A Sailor" in 1944.  Do you think the name change came from that turkey and duck thing?  It's your turn, Starliteyes.

It must be Koala + Tea + Street or Quality Street.


Starliteyes, I have found that the best test of a clue is if it can be solved as a stand alone clue without the context of the rest of the puzzle.  When I saw _______ Bear, I certainly didn't think of Koala.  If you had put the word marsupial or Australian in the clue, it would have come more easily.  I might have used the clue _________ Lumpur.  For the second clue, ______ For Two, If you had put quotation marks around the clue, then it would have been obvious that it was a title.  Otherwise, one might consider the phrases Dinner For Two, or Table For Two.   Scarlet ________ could have been Scarlet Ribbons or Scarlet Letter.  What I'm trying to say with all this is that I think it works better when the clue is not ambiguous.  By giving a frame of reference, that will generally lead your reader in the right direction.  


Here's a quick one:
