Great quiz, but the "new and popular quizzes" banner blocks the years 1986-90 at least on my screen.

Yeah. Saw it now. I made now two columns. It's not beautiful but better than not being able to complete the list.

You need to type Marlon Brando for On the Waterfront, but just Brando for Godfather. Should be same, no? And the answer for Hamlet, if you type Lawrence Olivier it works but if you just type in Olivier it doesn't. You have to put in Oliver. Likewise you have to type in Seymour Hoffman but Seymour isn't part of his last name. Wikipedia lists his brother's last name as just Hoffman. Daniel Day-Lewis I understand but most other quizzes just accept Lewis.
