I'm sure there is a simple explanation for this puzzle.

However, it reminded me of the one about the guys so tired of telling the same jokes they called them out by number.

Sure there is. You can google, or you can not google. It doesn't make a real difference.

My lowest score ever in a WP; I thought I had it once, but the theme remained elusive. I await the explanation and my inevitable *headdesk* reaction.

Well I found it a tough puzzle --as my score indicates. But enjoyable; horses for courses.

I was totally dumbfounded by this puzzle! I just didn't get it.
I just sat here plugging letters in, hoping I would have enough points left to actually finish. I've never bailed on a puzzle, and I'm not gonna start now.

This is not to say it was a bad puzzle, just one that I couldn't get my head around.

I did pretty well, but I expected " a hook" and my first puzzle was not as hard as some others.
The theme played out as expected..
The short phrases are the most worrisome.

I had to google or else I would have seen a quick fall to the bottom too.

Four of mine I have seen, one I have not and it made me crazy. Such young people. Perhaps age has its advantages and I also caught the title of the puzzle before I started.

I dont think I have ever,every had less than 3.500 points, but there it is.

Little ones are not my favorite, but for those who like them it was great.

Got completely and totally lucky with this puzzle - my first one was Tora Tora Tora which I got instantly and gave me the theme. The rest were ones I knew fairly well except for one which proceeded to occupy a half hour of my life. Finally knuckled under and guessed a letter which happened to be in it and then just started thinking up words with the 4th letter "e" that might make a plausible movie title. Somehow hit upon money - but using the movie "Money Money Money" was more than a little sneaky as I would assume the author is referring to L'Aventure, c'est l'aventure - and you can probably google all day before you'll track it down by its English title.

I didn't like this one. At all. Sorry, author!

This Word Puzzle was all about movies with titles that repeat, either twice or thrice. Hopefully, the WP's name helped. The year of the movie's release was the clue.

Some of the titles were a bit obscure. My reference was Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, so all of the titles were legitimate.

I got stuck on my fourth puzzle Tramp, Tramp, Tramp. Jackie Gleason starred, was a 1942 film, wasn't born, didn't have TV, googled like mad. I too was lucky, The first one I had was Mary, Mary, Debbie Reynolds, from 1963, the year I graduated from high school and I saw it at the theater. I assumed echo meant just that so when I saw the letter configuration.......enjoyed the puzzle.

Dug out my copy of Leonard Maltin and there it is: Money Money Money . I usually sneak the WP in at work over lunch so might just have to tote that book to work next time there's a movie puzzle. Thanks Sploofgenie for a very creative effort.

Could've got it in 5 but for money money money, which near as I could tell on the net was a 1975 ABBA song, not a 1973 movie, but hey.

Guess ah need me one 'a them thar book thangs.

If you play the 1973 Pink Floys song 3 times in a row, you get to go back to Kansas.

Or something.

Well, I naturally assumed that was the theme, but I still remained clueless. In my circle, I'm the movie expert, and I nonetheless got five titles I had never heard of before, and I see that IMDb lists three of the titles as alternates or translations. Obscure, I think, doesn't even begin to describe this WP.

Money Money
Marry Me, Marry Me
Mary Mary
Tramp Tramp Tramp
Kill Kill Kill

I could've used a *Tora, Tora, Tora.*

I had Tora Tora Tora as my first WP also, and it definitely helped. I actually had my best result in months on this WP, so I loved it!

I got the theme, got tramp tramp and tora tora tora, but Mary killed me, as did money............ sigh

Ouch Lamizell those were tough. Mary, Mary would have been my only get in that list.

Well, Sploofusgenie, then I figured out the theme pretty quickly. I still couldn't find the obscure movies.

Yes, I too would have gotten "Mary, Mary." Had seen it live on Broadway.

Onward and upward
