Popular Culture Picture Pun Puzzles

If you’re like me you like puzzles, specifically rebuses. If not, what are you doing here? You might recall the last time down rebus lane I did bird spotting puzzles, this trip features popular culture: movies, actors, TV shows, musicians, that sort of thing. There’s ten to begin with, but I will be adding new puzzling bits to this page from time to time in sections of six or so puzzles each. At least that’s the plan. We’ll see how it goes. You never know.

Here’s how it works

As you may have sussed out, all the movies in these ten rebuses starred Cary Grant, whose real name was Archibald Leach.
