A Chaneski From Guy John Our Puzzle Word

Play episode
Quiz Guy John Chaneski was inspired by a version of film in which a filmmaker went to the trouble to take a clip of every word used in the movie The Wizard of Oz, arranging them in alphabetical order, all the way to the Tin Man’s saying zipper. The movie is called, not surprisingly, Of Oz the Wizard. John pondered a puzzle that applies the same treatment to other artistic works. For example, U.S. national anthem would be “Banner Star-Spangled The.” He’s created a whole puzzle based on that idea. The first clue starts the game out with an alphabetic flourish: Using this pattern, how should he title the alphabetically correct version of the 1967 Faye Dunaway-Warren Beatty classic about two bank robbers? This is part of a complete episode.
