Live Poll: What If They Kept The Fake Working Title?

Fake working titles are sometimes used to hide the true nature of a film, for example to avoid unwanted public attention or political interference/censorship. (Source: IMDb Contributor)If these movies kept their fake working title, which movie/title combination Is the weirdest?

Hoekkie: I was glad to see The Intimidation Game and Rory's First Kiss on the list, but I would recommend removing Shoeless Joe (Field of Dreams) from the list.

Field of Dreams was based on a novel by W.P. Kinsella titled Shoeless Joe, so Shoeless Joe wasn't a fake working title but a plausible actual title for the film. As it turned out, the studio eventually demanded a change in the title before release.

I see that you have another list for working titles that were actually plausible titles for their films (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069689252/), so I would recommend moving Shoeless Joe onto that list instead.

Thanks, I think that one slipped through. I removed that one and added in my other list.

Star Trek: “ The Ernest Castelhun Chronicles ” since their is no character in Star Trek with that name.
However. "The Intimidation Game" sounds like an interesting title, and yet, so perfectly describes the intimidation games that go on in that in "Batman Begins" from the purpose of Batman's costume to Falcone'as constant game of intimidating everyone to scarecrows M.O. Of the fear gas, or to Ducard/Ra's Al Ghul use of intimidation as a war strategy. A very apt working title.
