The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Thank you so much! :bounce: I will apply my winnings toward the Tusk blu ray when it comes out, Johnny was so funny in that role!

Congrats to Stroch and Shaman-art! :applause2:

After I realized I had missed one answer I was sure I would be at the bottom of the contest heap, that was a very difficult puzzle. Everyone who participated deserves congratulations for trying! And congratulations to the moderators for creating a challenge worthy of ONBC!

I am very glad that you all enjoyed the puzzle, and I didn't realize it was so hard. I'm sorry about that! But thank all of you for trying, and I hope even if it was hard, it was fun. :heartbeat:

One hard thing...what Grenouille wanted most in life was...to exist, because he had no scent, he felt he did not exist (the cave episode), which he wanted...and exist fit the spaces, but did not correspond to.....Bukowski with the s. So maybe smell, but he could do that, better than most, so ?? Last movie Crusoe...not Benny (Adian Q), Benny and Joon, too early, wrong # of letters.......movies in the books...characters....Bobby Dye. Definitely , must be smell with an "E" in the middle. But maybe not, since Grenouille could definitely smell, he just did not have an odor. Transitive/intransitive??

Also, sadly, 30 across, sure of Hemmingway. Doesn't fit. Racks brain for food/meal themes. Authors with 9 letter last names. No dice. Retrieves copy of Movable Feast to search, glances at cover. One M. Same mistake in high school, where I lost 30 points for misspelling his name 3 times in an essay. :headache:

I did very much enjoy the crossword, and thank you for putting it together.
