Clue/Question: The movie about the winner of the marathon featured a . . .
Answer: LEADING MAN
(Very cute. A Tom Hanks, a Steven Spielberg and a couple of stock characters. Nice jumbling of the clue words. Very surprisingly, “again” is new to the clue word database. ralis95 has some work to do. Three words from Sunday’s Jumble Spoiler, which I’ll try to post tomorrow, as well. Beautiful job on the answer letter layout, but I think the cartoon and the gag were pretty self-evident. Be well and do good, friends. We reached our 500th subscriber/follower today! That’s gotta count for something.) — YUR
