From Games Magazine back in 2001

Postby whitefork » Fri Jul 18, 2008 6:57 pm

I don't recall seeing it here.

FRACTURED MOVIES CONTEST:
(from Games Magazine - After 1/2/2001, this is not a contest, just a puzzle.)

The thirty phrases below are all names of movies, so the speak.
We've translated each title into its (approximate) phonetic equivalent
by combining words that, when read together, sound like the name of a
well known movie. We've also removed one word from each phrase and
replaced it with a blank.

Your task is to decode the movie titles, filling in each blank with the
appropriate word. The missing words, along with two extras, appear above.
Once all the words are correctly filled in, the letters in the two unused
words can be rearranged to spell the first and last names of a popular
movie star; his or her name is the answer to the contest.

EXAMPLE
Suppose a fractured title reads "treed hay _____ icon door".
If you fill in the blank with the word SOFA, the phrase, when read aloud,
will sound like "Three Days of the Condor", a familiar movie title.
