Now Playing: SEPT. 14, 1962

More retitlings. This entry from Youngstown OH is at least honest about it.

Something of Value had come out five years earlier and was an adaptation of a novel of the same name. But I suppose Africa Ablaze gets to the point more directly.

In Pittsburgh the distributor retitles something imported rather than something old.

The Sinatra-esque American title covers Richard Lester's It's Trad, Dad, an early production of Amicus, a British studio that would soon rival Hammer as horror specialists.

There's probably a title change somewhere in this package, also playing in the Pittsburgh area this weekend.

There are plenty of Marcello Mastroianni movies that could be repackaged as "Women," but damned if I know which one they're showing. Any enlightenment from the audience will be greatly appreciated.
