CELEBRITY CROSSWORD: To mark the 75th anniversary of the New York Times crossword, which debuted in 1942, we are publishing a series of puzzles co-created by famous people who solve the Times crossword, working together with regular Times puzzle contributors.
This collaboration is by the esteemed star of TV and film John Lithgow - who last month won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting [63-Across] - working together with Brendan Emmett Quigley, of Brookline, Mass. This is Mr. Quigley's 175th puzzle for The Times.
The celebrity collaborations will continue periodically through the year.
More information about the making of today's puzzle appears in the Times's daily crossword column (nytimes.com/column/wordplay).
