Times 27013 - Peckinpah Meets Coward?

Sorry, owing to a number of unforeseen circumstances that I will not bore you with, I need to do this on the iPad. So, no bells and whistles (or clues), I’m afraid. A little under 25 minutes for this, so hopefully not too much guidance needed.

ACROSS

1 SALAD DAYS - SAYS around ALADD(in); here’s the Python version https://youtu.be/LeYznvQvnsY
6 GABOR - BAG reversed OR
8 LOWERED - (f)LOWERED
10 STAND-UP - STAN PUD reversed
11 TRAIN - RA in TIN
12 SEES SENSE - ESSEN in SE SE
13 SEGMENTS - GMEN in SETS
14 ABLE - (t)ABLE(t)
17 PONG - literal is HUM; P replacing S in SONG
18 SKIN TEST - if you are the skintest bloke in the pub, you will try and get out of buying your round
21 OFF THE MAP - THEM in OFFA P
22 LIKEN - L IKE N
24 TRUCKER - R in TUCKER (FARE = food)
25 LONG ARM - hidden
26 RAT ON - (use)R A TON
27 SATURATED - SAT U-RATED (if a film is U rated, all may watch it)

DOWN

1 SPLIT - L in SPIT (rent)
2 LOW-HANGING FRUIT - L + FIGURING ON WHAT* (anagram)
3 DERANGED - if you delist something, you remove it; if you are a crossword setter, you may derange it
4 ANDESITE - (b)AND + SEE IT*
5 SUSSEX - S US SEX (it); now West Sussex and East Sussex, county wise
6 GLASSY - LASS in G(u)Y
7 BED-AND-BREAKFAST - cryptic definition; I think the idea is that the type of accommodation at these excellent places typically involves sharing - typically the dining room, sometimes the bathroom. OTOH, as brnchn says below, bed and breakfasting is city jargon for selling shares one day and buying them back the next.
8 REPRESENT - REP RESENT
13 SUPPORTER - PORT in SUPER
15 SKY PILOT - SKYP(e) I LOT
16 ONE-LINER - ON (cruis)E LINER
19 SHAKEN - HAKE in SN
20 SMIRKS - IRK in SMS
23 NOMAD - ON reversed MAD
