Titleness Is the Mother of All Evil

Recently I've been spending some time in the '70s.

I'm expanding the trivialTV Schedule database, which means I'm entering a lot of movie titles for the '70s. One thing really struck me — the number of theatrical films that were later shown on the telly with a different name. (Some made-for-TV movies even changed names for their second airing.)

So I queried the entire database and found the same thing happened in the '70s, '80s and early '90s. Here's the alphabetical list of theatrical films named differently on TV (with links to imdb):I'll update the list as I find more films like these.

Note: The film titles have the following format:
