1) Think of a movie. 2) Write a haiku that describes that movie and no other, yet is unobvious and clever enough that it challenges the wits of people reading it. 3) If within 24 hours, someone correctly identifies the movie, congratulate her or him and let that person write the next one. 4) If no one has identified the movie within 24 hours, write another "haiklue" and see if someone gets it. If no one does, post the answer and write another.

See the topic "Sorry to see it go" for seven pages of example.

I'm going out on a limb (very punny) and say Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Could it be "Duel," Spielberg's first feature film?

Sorry, even older than that.

Since I was a bit too cryptic, I'll give another Haiklue!

Palace problems are
solved knight-ly. But take which one?
Vessel or chalice?

Ah, now ... surely ye jest not to suggest The Court Jester starring the inimitable Danny Kaye. And if that don't do it you can drag me down to the dungeon where haiku dragons will feast on my soul washed down with the brew that is true.

BTW - Here's a clip on YouTube

Nice choice, CL! But I'll wait for your confirmation.

I knew a second Haiklue would make it obvious.

"The Court Jester" it is!

(I love that movie!)

Murray packs a punch.
How long can he keep it up?
I said, how long can -

OK - here's a haiklue:

It's the radio,
the clock, the journey, and then ...
It's the radio,

Let's see how cryptic this one is for you all:


Can love really grow
between two so different?

Hmmm - Considering the keywords (love, grow, different, draw), I'll go with Shrek
or Beauty and the Beast
or The Frog Princess

Any good?

One of your answers is right, but I see where this would apply to all three.

This seems to have stalled.
Shall we get it going soon?
I thought it was fun.
