SECTION SIX 32
This puzzle's grid has six rings and six sections. Each ring contains a series of words placed end to end, reading either clockwise or counterclockwise; all the words in a given ring will read in the same direction. Ring 1 (the outer ring) contains six answers that read clockwise; the starting spaces are numbered in the grid. Clues for the answers in the remaining rings are given in order, but their starting points and direction are for you to determine. The sections (separated by the heavy lines radiating from the center) will help you place the inner rings: in a given section, each ring segment contains all but one of the letters in the next segment outward. In other words, a section's outermost segment contains six letters; the next segment inward contains five of those six letters in some order; and so on, until only one of the original six letters remains.

Arrange the letters in the six starred spaces to form the final answer, a 6-letter word.
Ring 1
1 Rocker Clapton
2 1958 Hitchcock classic
3 It takes two to do this ballroom dance
4 Diabetic's need
5 White stuff of which some fabric is made
6 Passage underneath a curved structure

Ring 2
* Coal miner's bird, perhaps
* The tiniest amount
* Acknowledgment
* Common garment for a businessman
* The ____ Purple (1985 film)

Ring 3
* ____ for Elephants (2011 film)
* Montoya of The Princess Bride
* Bad thing to add to injury
* Like some arteries

Ring 4
* Set on fire
* It might authorize a police officer to make an arrest
* Sideways Stories from Wayside School author Sachar

Ring 5
* PG-13, for one
* Muslim country's ruler, perhaps

Ring 6
