Similar Title Game

#1

Post by Kasparius »

Find two films that have similar titles, or even the same title and post it with a question mark.

Example: Les vampires (1915) or Vampires (1998)?

then the next person answers and posts two new titles:

Les Vampires (1915)

The Devil and Miss Jones (1941) or The Devil In Miss Jones (1973)?

I'll start:

The Disorderly Orderly (1964) or Orderly or Disorderly (1981)?

Do we have to have seen them? :P

If not I choose Orderly or Disorderly on the basis that it doesn't have Jerry Lewis in it and therefore must be superior.

The Circus (Chaplin) or At the Circus (Marx Bros.)?

The Circus (although I really like At the Circus)

No you don't have to have seen them. And Jerry Lewis is great.

Naruse's Mother (not fair as I haven't seen the other one, but I gave Naruse's 10/10, so I'm pretty sure I would still pick his.)

Eyes Without a Face

I guarantee that you would pick Young Frankenstein if you saw Young Einstein, one of the worst films I have ever seen. Australian filmmaking at its worst.
