movie trianagrams

Here's the whole list of movie trianagrams that ran in the National Post between Feb 4th and Feb 28th. Due to a mix-up, some editions of Feb 28th were missing the puzzle. They are included here as well as two bonus clues.


I have called this puzzle Trianangrams because it featured three words or names that that are anagrams of each other like “aspire,” “praise” and “Persia.” In this particular puzzle called Movie Trianagrams you must fill in the blanks for the missing words in the sentences, all that have movie themes. For example if the clue read

In his movie Jailhouse Rock _____ ______ the life of a _____-clad rock


The missing words would be “Elvis””, “lives” and “Levis.” As an added

clue, you will find that the missing words become longer as the puzzle

progresses. In one case you are asked to fill in four blanks. Good luck.
