Some Thoughts My take on it | Comment 3 of 9 |
1. --E-- A- A -AI-- 
2. hOnOrE dE bAlzAC            c.
3. -O- A- I-
4. smOkIng gUn                 b.
5. Up To snUff                 f.
6. scArlEtt O'hArA             g
7. --I-- I- --E -U-
8. sUpErstItIOUs               i.
9. thE sInkIng Of thE tItAnIc  j.
10. trIbEcA                    k.
11. whEEl Of fOrtUnE           l.
12. -U-- -I---

The asterisked clues below have not been used:

a. Comparison phrase           *
b. incriminating device
c. French writer
d. encouraging phrase          *
e. actor                       *
f."acceptable"                  
g. literary/movie character                    
h. curmudgeon                  *
i. adjective
j. event
k. in NYC
l. TV show 

Clue a probably goes with part 1, with the two middle words being "AS A". Clue d may refer to line 3 with the last two words being "AT IT".

Clue h might make 7 "Stick in the mud", but I don't know if curmudgeon is really synonymous with that. But if that's the case it would leave 12. -U-- -I--- as the actor.
