Calling all Charadistas, old and new! This thread is devoted to cinema and here's how it goes. In less than 20 words posters have to evoke the name of a film but they cannot use names of actors, directors. For example:

2 words: 1) summit 2) connects dog and powder

answer: Top Gun

easy innit? Ok let's go

2 words: 1) falsify/change 2) 2 syallables i, unfamiliar ii, connects bird, bug & boat

Most definitely not Chewy. Here Comes Mr Jordan fits the rather non-specific clue in a most specific way. It's a classic (1940s)film about reincaarnation, with lots of twists. The main protagonist gets put into the body of a murdered banker. the banker was murdered by his wife and... O it was remade as Heaven can Wait.

So Mr Chew I think you need to give a more specific clue.....

Honestly, this is not a rerun of the infamous The Unband!

Film. One 'word'

Not only does the leading actress have a very short name, but also the film title has one too.
