List: Movies With Very Long Names

posted by Nell Minow

Deletionpedia is a site that scoops up all the articles considered unworthy of being included in Wikipedia because they are not important or not documented or just silly. What a magnificent concept! One example is the list of movies with particularly long titles.
Here are some of the longest:
Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D (1991)
The Fable of the Kid Who Shifted His Ideals to Golf and Finally Became a Baseball Fan and Took the Only Known Cure (1916)
The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (1967)
The Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Green Grasshopper and the Vampire Lady from Outer Space (1965)
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
It is interesting that the 60’s seemed to be the height of the long movie title era. Don’t know how they missed this one:
Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feeling So Sad (1967)

    one of my favorite films is also a long titled one from the 60s:
    ‘Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines or How I Flew from London to Paris in 25 hours 11 minutes’

    One of my favorite titles (and a pretty good film, too) is “The Man Who Walked Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain”.

    As soon as I saw this subject, the longest title that intrigued me came to mind: Lina Wertmuller’s film “Swept Away by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August.” I was really taken by the film when I first saw it in the early 70s, and when I went back and watched it again about 10 years ago, I giggled at how bad it was! Of course, it wasn’t as bad as Madonna & Guy Ritchie’s remake, simply called “Swept Away.”
