And one more:

* 35 Across - The Cowboys

which, considering the trivia question I posted earlier in another thread, I'm fairly embarrassed that I missed that one during my first perusal of this puzzle.

 

By the way, Kid, 34 Down and 40 Down are really making my head hurt because the obvious answers just don't fit within the puzzle. :_|

A couple of more potential answers:

* 15 Down - The Hallelujah Trail

* 18 Down - The Mark Of Zorro (And, yes, I went "Doh!" and hit myself in the forehead once I realized what "Slash, slash, slash" meant. Very very nice clue!)

39 Across - The Good The Bad And The Ugly

 

15 Down - The Hallelujah Trail

18 Down - The Mark Of Zorro

 

"Slash, slash, slash" was a very direct clue. I was wondering

when it would dawn on someone :P Thank you, Liam.

I have just discovered two errors. 30 - Down contained six extra squares.. 40 - Down contained two extra squares. I have edited them out of this version. Please excuse the error. Near as I can figure, the rest of the puzzle is good to go. Thank you.
