Puzzle by Patrick Blindauer / Edited by Will Shortz
GRUMPY OLD MEN with THE APARTMENT in a line of double-letter squares clued as (4D. 14-Down starring Jack Lemmon) and OCEANS ELEVEN with GUYS AND DOLLS (21D. 14-Down starring Frank Sinatra), along with DOUBLE FEATURE (14D. Drive-in theater draw … with a literal hint to 4- and 21-Down) constitutes the interrelated group of this Thursday crossword.
The across entries containing double-letter squares are a bit difficult, especially for anyone unfamiliar with the film titles.
