"Change of One" - Spirit Drummers, 2000

John and I came up with a game this weekend. Here's how it works.

Take a movie title. Change only ONE letter within the title. And the resulting word, after the letter change, must be a real word.

Examples? The first one I came up was: "The Bribe of Frankenstein". And how about the film about abnormal weather: "One Blew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

John came up with a couple of classics. He remembered that Bruce Willis once made a gardening thriller called "Dig Hard". And then there was Hitchcock's only boring film - the one about London Tube drivers - called "The 39 Stops"!

We welcome other submissions, and I'm SURE you can come up with some good ones!

How can I compete with Nozza's marvellous list?

How about that epic about the Romans in Scotland: Chariots of Fife?

And in case you thought it was all about a large green scary ogre, think again: Shrew.

Star Wart.

Or Stag Wars.

The one about splitting the atom: Fission Impossible.

This is a great game. Would you mind if I put it on my blog too?
