Great fun, challenging but fair. Good clues too. More like this, please!

Really great idea - movies and music - what better combo ?!

Aaaand one pink screen later, I discover the people who matter aren't reading our discussion of verb tenses in WPs. Drat!

... or they just think the opinion of a vocal few is not imposed canon. Greta Garbo still acting? Sounds forced and crazy to these ears.

Personally, I may not have had the same puzzles you did on this WP, but I did not even notice the verb tenses. The sentences were natural to me and caused not a hint of trouble whatsoever. I didn't even need to guess S for the purpose of a tense check throughout (only perhaps to figure out a word itself).

I never said she was still acting, Ken. I said she's still on the silver screen. Take that rash of commercials from years ago that used clips from John Wayne and Fred Astaire, among others. You wouldn't use past tense in describing them ("Fred's dancing on the ceiling to sell Dustbusters -- that's appalling."), but they had both been dead for years.

Awww, this was such fun. But how humbling to find I'd not seen three out of five of the ones I got! More like this please.

nice set; I think I'd seen zero of mine. But then movies aren't my thing.

So this is where the verb tense argument ended up! Either way, I'm now convinced that any discussion of a rule is useless, and a safety letter (s or d) is probably the smartest approach.

Fun puzzle though!
