    Being extra dumb with this one, two answers I don’t fully understand. Guessed STEVEN for 4D and SHINE for 23D, but can’t see how they are derived, except SHINE is anag of HE’S IN, but the rest … ?

      4D: Secret group is SEVEN (from Enid Blyton’s ‘Secret Seven’ books) – so T inside SEVEN is STEVEN
      23D: SHINE is the name of a film with actor called Rush in it – films are sometimes described as ‘vehicles’ for the starring actors.

      Kropotkin does seem very fond of old films – this one is relatively recent (1996) but some of his references go way back to the 40’s, well before my time 🙂 I rely on Google to confirm that such a film exists!
