Dang! I had a 50% chance of getting 17 Across right. And didn't. So my new guess for that one is Georgia.

 

And, in the category of "you learn something new every day", I have seen *Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N.* multiple times and have never realized that there was an R.N. in the title. Another "Doh!" moment.

I was flabbergasted to see that 19 Down was not *The African Queen*. :( And then I realized that my guess was one letter too short. :0 Obviously I've lost my ability to count. :_|

 

So here's hoping that I won't make a wrong guess for the same clue twice in a row:

 

19 Down - *The Princess Bride* (Recount just in case. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16. Yep, looks like I got enough letters this time.)

 

And another guess from the eighties:

 

34 Across - *The Ice Pirates* (I'm hoping that this isn't the Guinness one, Kid. I know it got panned back in the day. But I kinda liked it.)

 

And one from the seventies:

 

29 Across - *Swashbuckler* (Another one that got panned which I liked. And not just because it had Genevi?ve Bujold in it. But she was definitely one of the reasons that I did since I was 16 when it came out!)
