    Creatures the World Forgot (1971)

    If the world had forgotten all those dinosaurs, it is rather fortunate that Hammer remembered them...

    Krakatoa: East of Java is the most famous example, as it's actually West of Java.

    On a slight tangent, the tile 2001: A Space Odyssey meant a futuristic romp in 1968, now it's a costume period drama!

      A Taste of Fear (1961) ?

      Can't say I've ever tried any myself.

        Nice one.
        They covered themselves by calling it "Scream of Fear" overseas. I used to love that movie, it was often on ITV as the late movie on Friday nights in 70s and 80s.

        Mission Impossible:

        You would think that after so many films they would have realised it was possible.

          Yeah and a side-effect of daft titles like that is that it makes the film industry look stupid, I mean NOBODY at head office or on the production side, or the scriptwriters or the actors picked up on the oversight, duh...

            It wasn't an oversight. The producers reckoned that 'East of Java' sounded more exotic. They thought that their audience would be ignorant of the true geography.

              Okay, if the film's producers, scriptwriters and actors are happy to look stupid, I'm happy too..

                The Magnificent Seven (1960) sequel Return of the Seven (1966). Hold on a minute, didn't four of them die!? (nowadays we'd probably get a zombie Western). And Vin has changed bodies, he looks more like Robert Fuller than Steve McQueen and as for Chico, Horst Buchholz has become Julian Mateos. Still, I doubt the title "Return of the Bald One, Two Imposters, and Four Gunfighters" would have fitted on a poster, let alone put bums on seats!

                Mind you, I'm quite tickled by the idea of a zombie Western .

                But there are two films I know of with that SORT of title. Name them, anybody.

                  Consider yourself tickled.

                      I was thinking of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. There was also the comedy spoof 'Three Fights, Two Weddings and a Funeral', which you can on YouTube surely. I mean Shurly. And don't call me Garf - it rhymes with barf.

                      Hmm. Perhaps you shouldn't have brought that to my attention. Think.... Limerick.

                      Careful - I'll call the police. :-(

                    Similar to the Krakatoa title here's two more misleading film titles. Abbot and Costello go to Mars, they don't, they go to Venus and the Rin Tin Tin film Tracked by the Police has no tracking or police in it.

                        How can Chingachgook be 'The Last of the Mohicans' because-

                        "Population estimates indicated approximately 3,500 Mohican descendants in the early 21st century."
