Ben Hecht (1894-1964)
For Valentine’s Day we feature an appropriate — if somewhat enigmatic — quote from Ben Hecht, American journalist, novelist, screenwriter, director, producer, and playwright. He has been called “one of the most successful screenwriters in the history of motion pictures.” In 1927 he was awarded the first Academy Award for Original Screenplay, for the movie Underworld. (By the way, his birthday is the last day of this month, two weeks after Valentine’s Day.) Enjoy the solving!
Now it is your turn to be the puzzlemaster. See if you can place the Hecht quote onto the half-rack diagram. (Difficulty: ★★)
(We now provide a guide to how to solve Quip-Bild puzzles; you will find it under the “Quip-Bild Puzzles” link above. And we have also posted, under the same link, blank diagrams — both half-rack and full-rack — that you can print out and use to enter your Quip-BildTM solutions.)
