Jack - I think the last word should have 7 letters, not 8,

Oops. Thanks, Mike.   You are, of course, right.  I totally stuffed up on that last word count. I have fixed it. Sincere apologies to anyone whose time I have wasted.

I'm back Jack!

My rebus is a film from 1967.  I suspect you'll find this far too easy!

#4 #4 #4


Please change the first letter of the first picture.

I am going to post Mike’s Spoiler alerts and my rebus before I have my first drink for today, which I am planning to be in the next few minutes

SPOILER ALERT - Mike's first of two rebuses

SPOILER ALERT - Mike's second of two rebuses

An Essay which explores the relationship between Mikes two comedians


The General Roman Calendar is the liturgical calendar that indicates the dates of celebrations of saints and mysteries of the Lord (Jesus Christ) in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, wherever this liturgical rite is in use.  My rebus is the subject of the celebration on June 24.

Two “the”s and an “of”  are not pictured

Picture 4.  Replace the 13th letter of the alphabet with the 20th.

3  #5  2  #5    #4   #7

        
Cheers, Jack

A 1987 war film set during the Vietnam war, but actually filmed in England!

three words - 4/5/6

picture 3 - the name of the character, not the actor

Hi Pen,
I’ve answered your questions in the thread you opened, so I will get straight on to the rebus.

Set in the 1860s, a book published just after WWII and a film released a couple of years after that.

#4  2   3   #3   #5

of the  

Picture 1.  Her real name not her code name, the white mouse.
Picture 2 and 3  It is what they are rather than who they are .

Hi Jack

It sounds like you had a smashing day & what a cracking picture :)

I've had a busy & very enjoyable & relaxing day.  Zoe had a day off & we did a (very >:D) little shopping this morning & then tootled off to Buckingham this afternoon for a massage :)  Bliss!!  We're going to watch The Negotiator with Samuel L Jackson in a little while accompanied by a glass or 2 ;D

I think I may have got your rebus but am struggling with Mike's as I can't see the pictures now.  I had then on my phone earlier. Weird!

My post tonight is just like me - short & sweet >:D

Now I know I'm going mad as the pictures are back now!  Couldn't see them when I was composing my reply but they were then when I just looked at the post ???  Haven't had a drink yet either :laugh:

A bit early in the day to mark 'three quarters of a century' with anything but breakfast, but it's never too early for a rebus!

The eponymous cause of all the problems in a 2014 Australian film of which William Friedkin, director of 'The Exorcist' said
"I've never seen a more terrifying film. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me".

two words - 2/8

picture 2 - the second part of the name of the fellow hiding in the tree
picture 3 - either half of this fellow's name
