Madame Bovary (are titles ok?)
I thought of this one but discarded it, since her full name is Emma Bovary ;)

As the head arbiter, I would rule against titles, honorifics, etc. being part of the name. Seems to be one step farther away from the original intent of First+Last = Title. (Here's a film with more than one: Captain Newman, M.D.)

I'll go through the rest of the offerings some time today and update the running list. I'm not surprised there are a lot more answers here than I might have originally thought. Keep them coming.

A handful that I've thought of since posting:

Harry Brown
Ally McBeal
Peter Gunn
Mike Hammer
Ellery Queen
Lou Grant
Stoney Burke
Agatha Raisin
"The COMPLETE GUIDE To Republican Ethics: tRump Edition" is right ===> here

Great! Go ahead and enter me now. Here are my responses! (I just dumped my database):

1) Diane Keaton
2) Tom Hanks
3) Woody Allen
4) same as (1)
5) Diane Keaton

I can't help it if Bugs Bunny never taught me this stuff with the other cultural learnings 8-) .

ETA - Oh crap! I meant Meryl Streep for #1,4,5. The crooked nose lady - I just saw her name below. Yeah, I'm good at this...

Think of it this way: if he does it before the Oscars, there will be less trivia to work with.

The losing streak ends here, since we are diving into TV shows:

Perry Mason
