The Dabbler’s Round Blogworld Quiz #19

Here’s this week’s devilishly fiendish Round Blogworld Quiz question (see the previous ones and their solutions here) is supplied by quiz-whizz Adelephant. As usual, find the link between these cryptic clues. A point for each item you get, and an imaginary cream bun of regal proportions if you get them all. If you get the link straight off, please don’t give it away too early!

What links “Wood Painting – The Movie!” to: Clint Eastwood; a Temptations album track that turned out to be good for someone else; plus the bearer of the ‘Claws of the Scorpion’ and the Norman invasion (with opposing knights)?

Clues will be given as necessary, and the solution will appear later.

    I think I might have got the connection (but not all the details). Is the Temptations track ‘War’, later a hit for Edwin Starr?

    Common Seal, Monk Seal, Elephant Seal, Leopard Seal, Swan-necked Seal, Bearded Seal, Hooded Seal, Spotted Seal, Ringed Seal, Ribbon Seal.

    Only the Hooded Seal is relevant here.

    I think Jonathan and Ian’s clues are much better than mine.
