### NPR Sunday Puzzle (Nov 28, 2021): What's Your Sign?

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Nov 28, 2021): What's Your Sign?
Q: Take the 9 letters of EARTH SIGN. Repeating them as often as necessary, you can spell the four-word title of a classic movie in 15 letters. You can also use them to spell the four-word title of a classic song in 19 letters. What two titles are these?
The actor we associate with the movie is an earth sign, but the singer we associate with the song is a fire sign. I also thought I had the wrong movie.

Edit: Gene Kelly is a Virgo and Frank Sinatra is a Sagittarius. Like others, I wasn't initially aware that the movie title had an apostrophe in it which messed up my letter count.
A: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN and STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT

If the actress had used the actual spelling of her husband's last name, the puzzle wouldn't have worked the same.
