Interesting Film Title Changes

 Quatermass 11 ( 1957 ) Country of origin U.K quad, a  retitled  Enemy From Space U.S.A. insert and retitled once more as Birth Of A Monster Australian daybill. All nice artwork. One can understand America changing the title, but one wonders why it was necessary to alter the name again for Australia, instead of just using what seems a perfectly good title in Enemy From Space. Keep in mind as well that the Australian censors detested monsters in any shape or form, so the Enemy From Space title would have been, one would have thought, the way to have gone.

    The Yvonne De Carlo & Rod Cameron 1945 film with three titles as follows -

    Frontier Gal in the U,S,A,
    The Bride Wasn't Willing in the U.K.
    The Lady Objects in Australia. Usually in Australia with title changes we would have had either the U.S or the U.K. title, but not in this case.

    How To Stuff a Wild Bikini ( 1965 ) U.S.A. title altered to How to Fill A Wild Bikini in Australia. A friend of mine had a U.S. lobby card that was used in Australia with the word stuff covered with fill. It was so obvious I had to laugh at the time when I saw it.
