Is there a film called "You went over on your minutes - again?" cause that would be a good title for this one.

This is a good one. For now Im completely stumped. Many titles come to mind with the phone and with the knife but not with both. My kids keep telling me to guess Scream.

Hitchcock movie. There is a hint in the logo of the phone maker.

Bother, I missed it! Lucy must have got it right! I even looked up that film, to remind myself of the very complicated plot, but I failed to spot the "M"in the image.Very subtle & clever.

Note to self: Must wear the correct spectacles when peering at the monitor in middle of the night. Not to mention think harder.

The deadly weapon in the Hitchcock film is a pair of scissors, and the intended victim of the plot becomes the killer, in self-defence, so the planned murder doesn't actually happen. Curiously, my Wikipaedia research revealed the 1998 remake 'A Perfect Murder' in which a mobile phone is used, making the image a good match to the content of that film, but not the title.

Try dialing an M with a cellphone. Also changing murder weapons. That all makes it pretty obscure from the movie title. I think you miss the point. You are supposed to be clever in coming up with a picture which is easily identified to a movie title. Not to confuse enough to make it too difficult to guess.

Bynx, if I might diverge for a moment.

Dialling "M" with a cell phone is equally difficult as with a regular handset. Our problem is to dial the text letter "M" which is really not a good example since the "M' is the first letter under "6" and is accessible with a single stroke.

Try "S" and you'll gnash your teeth.

Aloha

Diverging back to 'dialling'. Im old enough that most of my life was involved with actually dialling. You stuck your finger or pencil in a hole and dialled it around. Now its push button. Not sure about the lingo of the day. Is it still called dialling since its actually pushing? A shot of an old rotary dial phone lying beside a body would be perfect.
