Correct, Sam.

Re: 2) Total number, we hear, who like it hot? (4)

"Total number" = sum
"who like it hot".. references the movie; "Some Like It Hot", I believe.

The "?" is indicating a soundalike.. sum = some


Re: 5) Sport scaring hero badly. (5-6)
Solution Horse racing

Which.. is an anagram of "scaring hero" (sorted "badly)

Caution. I once worked in a hospital for old people. There was one old dear who used to say 'oh you are a caution' if any of us tried to be funny. Actually she was quite a nasty old dear and was being sarcastic.. it is the only usage of it I have ever heard.

Still struggling with:

(3) Find warmth in this clue in Italian drama (7)

Possible answers:

tRAGEdy
tHEATre

'Rage' would work from the point of view that 'warmth' can be 'annoyance'. If I had to pick one, it would be the second.

Did not notice it is 7 letters so that rules that one out.

OK... so IF "theatre" is correct... how do the remaining letters fit in??

TRE is an Italian word -- that would be enough?

Is it 'in this clue' that needs a place? I don't see how, though.
