Correct on IQ1 and 2. The last one was South Carolina senator “Pitchfork Ben” Tillman. I’ll forgo my DQ, because on reflection, he’s a bit too obscure to really be fair.

Still holding one DQ, though.

Yes. I am Tybalt! , Juliet's choleric cousin. He has a lot of family pride and a hair trigger, but only a little more so than, say, Romeo.

2 and 3 are Walter Findlay and Walter Matthau, so I'm guessing 1 is Walter Payton.

And as always, spelling doesn't count, just in case I got some of those wrong.

7. Known for the arts
8. Actress, best known in niche category
9. No awards, but respected in her field
10. Caucasian
11. Has done film, but not what she's mainly known for
12. Not considered eccentric
13. Best known from TV
14. Attractive, but not what she's known for

Can't really objectively say if anyone's a beauty, or handsome, or eccentric. Not liking these subjective questions.
