This is a bit tenuous, and has a few links in the chain.

What links My Beautiful Laundrette and The Pirates of the Caribbean?

Are we talking Kuddly Keira or working the other way.

(originally I thought the link was - one's a good film the other isn't)

How's about...

MBL directed by Stephen Frears, who later directed Cheri with Rupert Friend in it, who met Keira on the set of Pride and Prejudice and Keira was in the Pirates thingy

....sounds like something from "Hello" magazine

Well, Stephen Frears is right, but it goes pear shaped after that. Not Keira I'm afraid. Another actress who is currently flavour of the month somewhat.

Actually, that link is a bit misleading. I should just forget it. I'd forgotten that the last bit was Pirates, so the link back from that is Prince of Persia. So now, all you have to do, is find a person who links that film with MBL (directed by Stephen Frears)

Just to recap - is the link an actress (but not Keira Knightley)?

Two musical giants, with a surname beginning with the same letter, and separated by about 200 years shared a house (errmmm.... not at the same time you understand )

The poem - is it either the Iliad or the Odyssey?

mmmm don't do nobility - has no validity in my book. Oh sorry this should be in the rant thread.

Or maybe I should just admit I haven't a clue.

The woman's surname is the same as a type of nobility (I'm in complete agreement John, as I expect you'd guess). It's to do with something sold in a particular shop.
