Jumble Spoiler – 03/23/22

Untitled | Tom hanks, Splash movie, Tom hanks movies

Visual Description:  Shortly after “Bosom Buddies”.


Clue/Question:  Ron Howard directed Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah in a movie that – – –

Fourth Grade Nothing: Bosom Buddies with Tom Hanks


(And, pretty much ever since the world has been Tom’s oyster!  He’s my generation’s Jimmy Stewart.  He’s America’s every man.  Pleasant looking, without being strikingly handsome.  But he has played a few romantic leads.  For me, his most memorable roles were in “Big”, “Philadelphia”, “Forrest Gump”, and “Saving Private Ryan”.  But he’s been in a slew of other great movies.  And of course, as the voice of Woody in the “Toy Story” animated series.  But I’ll always remember him as Kip Wilson, in “Bosom Buddies”, a show that hearkens back to Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, in “Some Like It Hot”.  Although Kip and Henry weren’t running from gangsters.  It’s such a shame that Peter Scolari is no longer with us.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words a number of times.  However, all of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  No real stumpers though.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  Excellently cryptic.  As someone who used to be good with entertainment trivia I immediately recognized the movie.

Great cartoon of Howard, Hanks and Hannah.  The three H’s???  I guess back in 1984 Opie Taylor/Richie Cunningham still had hair!  Super Hanks and Hannah!  I like the Oscar statues in the background.  I didn’t remember “Splash” being nominated for an Oscar.  Well, it was 38 years ago!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Another great one, Ken! (Hope you’re on the mend.) I also like a lot of his smaller, low key, dramatic roles, like Agent Hanratty in “Catch Me If You Can”, and Michael Sullivan in “Road to Perdition”. He’s just very easy to watch.

    I always knew you were *thick*, Ken! But I didn’t realize it was also at the blood level. 😄 You’re a smart guy, but don’t be a smart aleck with your doc. Follow the prescribed regimen, and mind yer P’s and Q’s. You’ve got friends on this blog who would miss you if you weren’t here.

    I fear we might have lost our friend, lwc. It’s been quite some time since he has posted any comments.

    Speaking of “the beat goes on” I’m going to leave you with something MUCH schlockier than some Sonny and Cher toon! Dig this, bro!

    The DeFranco clan from Canada but they had a little East NY Brooklyn in them,,,Yea!!^… WoW,,,
    Jack Benny*…What a unique show-biz personality!!…A one-of-a-kind act,,,miss him☆

    Iwc is on my/our pray-up list…

    Wow, Ken! That is terrible, my friend. I’m glad to hear that you DIDN’T break your *freaking* hip, but I can imagine the pain and suffering that you went – and may still be going – through. I’m telling you, as we get older – and I figure you’re no spring chicken – our various injuries/maladies can act like a domino effect. One damn thing leads to another!

    Well, I hope that you’re pain isn’t too severe, and you can hold off, as comfortable as can be expected, until the doc can perform that knee replacement surgery. Try to be a patient patient, and know that we are all holding good thoughts for you, brother.

    Roger that on the “…as we get older…”
    My chicken-hop is more like…”slow dancing, just me and my lady, slow dancing, just listen to the music…….”

    Best of health to you and yours~☆

    What would the ailing rich man give to have back his health???

    A soothing Byyyyyyy…….k
