Answer:  IN LARGE PART

(Excellent pun!  Kong was definitely the biggest part of the movie.  Well, other than the Empire State Building, that is.  And boy, was he ever a character!  So popular was he that they’ve remade, and ripped off, the story at least a dozen times!  But the original, as cheesy as it is by today’s standards, is still the best.

No new clue words today.  However, all of the jumbles came up as new.  I actually had to back into “aorta” today.  I just wasn’t seeing it.  I had a little trouble with “diorno”, but just a little.  The answer letter layout was a superior eleven letter jumble.  I can see some of you guys struggling with the final answer.  The phrasing of the clue/question was definitely not of the usual sort.

Great period piece cartoon again!  1933 was the year that my mom was born.  Movies were such a big thing, that people would dress up to go see them.  Great outfits!  And, a super job on the movie poster.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Indeed that final answer gave me four minutes of trouble. I kept trying to work APE in there or an -ING word. Nope. I struggled to see anything other than IN… or AN… I finally focused on the cartoon dialogue and got the hint for LARGE and then the rest of it right away. Good puzzle!

    Climb on all!
