(Awesome Jumble!  None of the clue words are new, yet all of the jumbles are.  I thought that “tageen” was a great jumble, and I even had to back into “rarity”.  The answer letter layout was a swonderful jumble too.  Nothing in it gave the answer away.  The cartoon is no less than a masterpiece, with the classic old movie theater, and the people’s outfits.  Especially the women’s!  I can just imagine my Gramma, back in her heyday, seeing her first “talkie”!  Actually, the woman in the foreground looks a little like the Tony Curtis drag character, from “Some Like it Hot”!  Not exactly a seminal moment in cinematic history, like “The Jazz Singer”, but a very funny movie nonetheless.  Tony actually made for a pretty cute dame!  More believable than Jack Lemon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  The closing line of “Some Like it Hot”, when Jack Lemon admits he’s a man, was a little ahead of its time, and definitely hilarious.  Check it below.     YUR

    UR, I too took some time getting Negate and Rarity, and I wasn’t able to back into them, because I just could not figure the puzzle out without their clue letters. I’m glad you mentioned the drawing, I just sat and looked at it this morning, because it was that good! I also thought of my gramma (I seldom see people spelling ‘gramma’ like I do!), back in the day! Love the ‘Some Like It Hot’ insert! You’re right, this jumble…s’wonderful, and so was your commentary today! A+ all around.

    Thanks, jenn! “Grandma” was never how me, my siblings, or my cousins, ever referred to her. It was always *Gramma*! And, now my (step) grand kids refer to me as Grampa Dave! It will be the same whenever the blood grand kids come along.

    I took it all in too! Even the shoes! The ladies’ look somewhat like our “shooties” today, but I bet they had buttons on the inside side and not zippers!

    Grand jumbler, and I didn’t get stuck. I did have to take pen to paper to figure out NEGATE, but it didn’t take long…for a change!!

    I had a one sided discussion with the husb about what it must have been like to come out of the theater after seeing and hearing a movie like that! Loved the “music and no orchestra” comment. And now, those who have them, can watch a movie on their phone if they’d want to. Goodness!

    Take care all!! LL

    Thanks for the high praise! I did like that cartoon as well. David seems to be throwing more throwback themed puns lately.

    I am not familiar with the term “shooties”, LL. What are they? — YUR

    Unc, shooties are basically boots that have been cut off at or a little under the ankle bone. They might slip on, they might zip, but they are not at all like like flats/ballerina shoes. They are a cross between a shoe and a boot–shooties!! 🙂 LL

    Oh. Okay. Thanks for the explanation, LL! — YUR
