A few things you might want to fix.

1) Fleming. One "m"

2) Please accept last names without the title. Such as Nelson. 3) Laurence Olivier was knighted in the year 147? Didn't realize he was that old.

I know that "cardinal" is a great title, but if it's in the question, then it shouldn't be required in the answer.
