WORDY WEDNESDAY #350 
PENT WORDS 70 
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 That ____ Cat! (1965 film where a cat assists an FBI agent, with an unnecessarily punctuated title) / Chaperone
2 Give authority to / For each
3 Peter of The Maltese Falcon (1941) / Dreck
4 Very soft mineral / Bassets and such
5 Impudence / Has the same opinion
6 Dopehead / Certain legume
7 "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)" band / Russian composer Mussorgsky
8 ____ McBeal (1997-2002 TV series) / One who manages accounts on a ship
9 Character who asks, "Would you eat them with a fox?": hyph. / Off-kilter
10 It may be noble / A ____ Cat!?! (2013 film where a cat speaks to humans, with an even more unnecessarily punctuated title)
