Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/18/10

The one sure way to conciliate a tiger is to allow oneself to be devoured.”   — Konrad Adenauer

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 07/18/10

Visual Description:  The filming of a scene from the movie “A River Runs Through It”.

CUNNEA  =  NUANCE,  FUTTIO  =  OUTFIT,  RAJUAG  =  JAGUAR,  DITNIC  =  INDICT,  SPICHY  =  PHYSIC,  ROOBLE  =  BOLERO   —   Giving us:  ACTITGRNDCSIOER

Clue/Question:  What the actor needed for the fishing scene.

Answer:  A “CASTING DIRECTOR

(Tough one!  No?  Some very interesting clue words today.  I really had my reservations about “bolero” for a while, and that held me up from getting the answer.  I was leaning towards something with the word leading, but I couldn’t get the “l” in the right spot with/from “rooble”.  When I finally gave into “bolero” – no other arrangements made a word – I looked harder at the cartoon, and “casting” finally appeared.  After writing out the remaining letters then I was able to see “director”.  You know . . . I think it’s extremely rare for the casting director to be anywhere near the filming of any part of the movie.  By the time they actually start shooting the film his/her job is long done!  Another part of the problem, and maybe this was just my newspaper, was I couldn’t tell if the letter “A” before the open quote was designating Answer, or was part of the answer.  Wow!  That was a lot of rationalizing for the lateness of this spoiler, huh?)   — YUR ;~)
