is my attempt at a fusion of two fiery passions: crosswords and the cinema. The puzzles in this monthly series will be chock-full of film-related trivia and wordplay, and will shirk the use of abstruse and obscure language and factoids that crosswords are notorious for. That is to say, Adieu au Notorious Langage
The key to this puzzle is the entry at 56-Across. Keep this in mind when answering the three other clues marked by asterisks. Happy solving.
