If you’re a movie fan (I know you’re already a fan of wordplay), this one is definitely for you. If you’ll remember my Letter Banks puzzle from a while back, it’s a concept introduced by Will Shortz a while back in which shorter words or phrases hold all of the letters needed to spell a longer word or phrase. It’s not really an anagram… if you’re not familiar, click through and it’ll all be explained to you. Instead of single words, the letter banks in this puzzle are for a movie title and one of its stars. This is the first time I’ve really forayed into the movie realm, so this is right up the alley for all you movie buffs out there.

For something a little extra, some of the letter banks are appropriate to the movies and stars to which they correspond. (The others don’t really mean anything at all apropos to their titles.) See if you can figure out which ones they are. I didn’t try to do this for all of the examples, but there were some I stumbled upon that I couldn’t resist.

I’ll be back with another crossword puzzle, of course, on Tuesday. The answer to  Freestyle Puzzle 37 will appear there too. But I hope this will tide you over until then.

As always, share this link! Pass it around!
