I agree it should be Fistful of Dollars


How do you get 'last of the red hot lovers'? I see the first letter of those words is missing, but what's the connection between that and the word 'last'?


Are these supposed to be movie titles?? Did I miss that in the original post??

Vera, you said it!

If the first part of each word is missing, then all you see is the LAST of each word.

No, I don't think they're all movie titles... but another one of them is... another Clint Eastwood movie! My daughter said she's seen the "the teh the" one, and in the original rebus puzzle the last "the" is formed in a very crooked way... so that you have one good "the", one bad "the", and one ugly "the".

Daughter gave me two more:
