Still up in the air: Dupont, DuPont, du Pont? Clayton Moore’s real name is Jack Carlton Moore according to NYTimes and CNN.com, but L.A. Times says Jack Carlson Moore. According to Lee Krasner’s bio, her birth name is Lena, "she preferred to be called Lenore, later Lee." Billboard Top 40 says Donna Summer’s real name is Adrian Donna Gaines.

Some cells in third column contain mixed italic and roman text. Just in case, the following titles should be in italics: 32 Dona Flor, 62 Without Limits, 118 Norman…Is That You?, 134 Sabrina.
