Answer:  FIELD OF SCREAMS

(Oooh!  A very scary Jumble pun!  And look, folks.  It’s just in time for Halloween.  This looks like one of Bucky B. Katt’s – of “Get Fuzzy” fame – movie mash-ups.  That stereotypical – selfish and mean spirited – Siamese cat is always looking to “improve” on things that are already popular.  Mainly because he doesn’t think that they’re “interesting enough”.  Ghosts can be benign, and even friendly, while zombies just want to eat our brains!  So, it would be infinitely harder to make a tender and heartfelt movie about connecting with your dead dad if you made the dead baseball players zombies, instead of ghosts.

All six of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Five of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “fdaari” in earlier Jumbles.  All the clue words came to me immediately.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  By itself, it was nicely cryptic.  But the cartoon and the clue/question set up the final answer as a pretty obvious slam dunk.  Oops!  Wrong sport.  Maybe an infield fly would be the better metaphor.

Super great cartoon!  Zombies coming out of a cornfield is definitely more scary than ghosts who look like regular baseball players.  But zombies all kind of stumble-walk, like Frankenstein’s monster.  Even at age 65, I think I could outrun those decaying boogers.  At least fast enough until I get to . . . the running car.  A very menacing looking Ray Kinsella too!  I don’t think Jeff’s – and Bucky’s? – reimagining of this modern day classic would appeal to me.  But the rest of the world seems to be zombie crazy, so who knows!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I just wasted twenty minutes of my life reading a wholly over-analytical, negative review of “Field of Dreams”, by some cranky sports writer.  He attacked just about every aspect of the movie.  And, even though he had watched it at age 16, 31 and in his 40s, he came away each time with the same opinion . . . that the movie stinks.  I’m a life-long sports fan, who had only heard of Shoeless Joe Jackson a year before, with the movie “Eight Men Out”.  To me, it made absolutely no difference that Ray Liotta’s Shoeless Joe was a right-hander, with a slightly New York accent, even though the real one was a lefty from South Carolina.  “Field of Dreams” was NOT a baseball biopic, it was a light mystical fantasy.  I’m generally not a fan of “magical thinking”, and I’m a bit of a contrarian myself, but this guy’s assertions were just ridiculous.  He probably hated “Dancing With Wolves” too.  LOL!     YUR
