From the Saturday Stumper

Today’s Newsday Saturday Stumper, by Matthew Sewell, took me about twice as long as usual to solve. But solve it I did. A particularly clever clue, 58-Across, seven letters: “They’re handled with salsa.” No spoilers; the answer is in the comments.

Surprising to see the clue for 39-Down, seven letters: “John Waters film gimmick inspired by Smell-O-Vision.” But that one’s a giveaway.
