WORDY WEDNESDAY #36
CHARADAGRAMS
When the answers to the PARTS clues are anagrammed and then assembled, they form the answers to the WHOLES clues. For example, if three of the PARTS clues are “Forearm bone”, “Holy item associated with a saint”, and “Telepathy and such”, and a WHOLES clue is “Event in which the Earth casts a shadow”, then the answers ULNA, RELIC, and ESP can be anagrammed and assembled into LUNA/R ECLI/PSE. PARTS clues are in alphabetical order by their answers; WHOLES clues are in no particular order, and you must determine which answer goes in which row of blanks. The letters in the shaded squares, reading down, will form two words that can be anagrammed and assembled into the final answer, a movie title.

PARTS: Suffer from poor health; “Were you raised in a ____?”; “Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great” author; Vagrants; Indian textile; Provide with duds; Chip's partner; Be courageous; Item soaked overnight; Mr. Knotts; Uses the rubber end of a pencil; Foul up; Use acid, perhaps; Performs a veterinary procedure, maybe; Big smile; Actor Ledger; Crowd; Have as a logical consequence; Falters; Wrestler Captain ____ Albano; Spiked ball on a stick; Fable feature; Be bothersome; Drug dealer's foe; “This game's rigged!” (2 wds.); Convent member; Kenobi played by Alec Guinness (hyph.); Sharif of Doctor Zhivago; Big bird; Seat; First episode, sometimes; Dispense a drink, perhaps; Sovereign's territory; Smells; Perform extremely well; Participates on The Voice, for example; Poison
