Please sploofus - would your word puzzle writers please check their spelling more carefully - it cost us 3 moves AGAIN and a top 10 position.

I think I know the one you mean...I found that it can be spelled 2 different ways (both legal). I got burnt on it to before I found the right per the puzzle spelling. If I had looked at the spaces right, it never would have happened.

Orlok in Count Graf Orlok from Nosferatu. It was spelled Orlock. BUT!!! both spelling are legit depending on version, country and remakes of the movie. If it were listed in the Dictionary, Orlok would be the primary spelling, but Orlock would be a legal variation. Orlock takes 6 spaces and Orlok takes 5...obviously. I should have caught it, but I didn't, and paid the price.

I wish I'd taken that one. Nosferatu is one of my favorite movies.
