Answer:  WALKEN ON AIR

(Ooh!  That’s a great stinky pun!  I’m a big fan of Christopher Walken, and my wife and I really like the movie “Catch Me If You Can”.  It’s based on a true story. It has a terrific cast, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, James – not Josh – Brolin, Amy Adams, Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Banks, and more!  And, it’s just so well done.  A very compelling story.  It’s a great Saturday, or Sunday, afternoon watch.  And, it’s now 20 years old!  Chris Walken also had one of the most memorable scenes in the movie “Pulp Fiction”.  Great actor.  Very versatile.

We’ve seen all of today’s clue words before.  Three of the Jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “cniwe” before.  Not crazy about the word “grille” though.  It’s archaic, like olde and shoppe.  It’s essentially the same as grill.  They should just drop the E and broaden the definition of grill.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  You really had to pick up on the clue in the clue/question.  At least I did.

Cool cartoon.  But before reading anything I thought I was looking at Boris Karloff!  LOL!  Drawing Christopher Walken must be very difficult.  I give Jeff an A for effort though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I’m glad I didn’t try to solve this one after getting the words unscrambled. I’ve never heard of the dude! (The last movie I attended was Planes, Trains, and Automobiles in the spring of 1989.) I’m quite contemptuous of what I term the “Product Placement Industry” and do my best to avoid it.

    C’mon, Art! The remake of “Pennies from Heaven” – referenced in the Jumble cartoon – is from 1981. And, he has been in a slew of other movies before then and since then, most notably “The Deer Hunter”, from 1978. He also played Annie’s wacko brother in “Annie Hall” in 1977.

    I’m not a fan of “product placement” either, but I’ve always been able to ignore it. Now, excuse me while I go for a glass of Pepsi! LOL!

    Why is the Ralis95 clue word database arcane?

    Is this in regards to the word “grille”, John? The word is still a legitimate word. I was just opining that the word – maybe – should go the way of “olde” and “shoppe”. The ralis95 database is simply a dedicated compilation of all the clue words used in the Jumble, by the Jumble creators, for many many years.

    Unc,

    It seems as if John’s question about the Ralis95 database came out of nowhere. Or, am I overthinking the question.

    Just wondering !

    I though it was because my post referenced two archaic words: “olde” and “shoppe”. But now I’m thinking this John might be some kind of spammer! He sent the same comment, as “anonymous” this time, under a slightly different IP address. Both from Tanzania. I deleted it, and I might delete the first one, even though I responded to it already.

    The database IS a little “arcane”, in that only myself and David L. Hoyt have copies of it. That’s the way the man wants it, so I abide by his wishes, lwc.

    Tanzania… Wow !

    I don’t think that neighborhood is anywhere around here. 🙂

    Thank you YUR, for your explanation regarding Ralis95,
