Answer:  PART-TIME

(The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.”  “I think she’s got it.  I think she’s got it!”  Accents can really be a bitch.  Some people pull them off so – seemingly – effortlessly, but they generally take a lot of work.  I haven’t watched My Fair Lady in quite a while, but it’s a great play/movie.  No new clue words, but I really liked the jumbling of both “italic” and “nephew”.  Hoyt did a fine job with the answer letter layout too!  You really have to re-arrange the letters to get today’s answer.  Well, not me of course.  I’m the idiot savant of Jumbles!  Ya have to be good at something!  Knurek also did a fine job . . . setting the stage.  That’s about it, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

    As a crossword maven, I came up with ANEAR for the second word. Yeah, perhaps obsolete but it lives on in crosswords. I would have never come up with something as mundane as ARENA without cheating.

    ITALIC I had to back into! I loved Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday.” Thanks, YUR, for that memory!

    Art. I think you’re just OLD, bro! LOL! Actually, I don’t doubt that others might have come up with this *archaic* word as well. But, I think that is Mr. Hoyt’s out.

    Lesley. That movie is one of my wife’s favorite movies. It’s a great movie. She was so beautiful!
