Sorry! Good one, Beck!

The Grapes of Wrath!



Onnicle: “Buddy, you are one helluva clavichord player! I have looked for a teacher for years! Do you give lessons?”


Onniclue: Play right, even though life may not always treat you right. Check your opinions at the door and you won’t offend people in power. Meddle with the government, but you might lose your freedom.

VACLAV HAVEL!

(I czeched my answer)

Onnicle: Little did I know that the burly Russian (tho’ "nyet" - and the infamous Russian curse that I can’t mention here - were the only words I ever heard him speak) would, at the end of the match, whimper. I also was surprised that he grudgingly shook my hand.

Clue: A vocal group most popular in the early-to-mid ‘60s. Still out there, and still funkified. This one will have you goin’ out of your head.

I guess I was too young; not really on my radar...

Onnicle: Although not often "Hungary", he enjoyed eating "Turkey" with mashed potatoes, and, rarely, a hamburg off the grill. Luxuries were a bit scarce...

Onniclue: Geez.

Gary Burg(h)off who played "Radar" on M*A*S*H


Onnicle: I know I am young, but I want to be the first female jockey to win at Del Mar. Meet me (giddy after my march to victory) at the rural cottage so we may celebrate with Louis and Robin.

Onniclue: Everyone remembers the daughters, but how about the parents?

LOUISA MAY ALCOTT

Onnicle: Well past a reasonable interval, the late prince’s staff was able to show arsenic was to blame. By some fluke, the enemy had slipped under their radar that terrible evening. A doddering, female invader - most capable, I assure you - had effected the deed singlehandedly, while fumbling with her pesky walker and a parasol of faded colors, with which she hid her face.

Clue: A blockbuster movie of the late 20th Century and its four main characters

Whew! I looked for Yoda, but didn't find him. Now that's my generation! :0)

Ooooh. I would have to cheat and look those up, so I'll let somebody else have a shot at it. My bad.
