    Can't imagine that "Ssssssss" or "Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad" won them over, either.

    I would assume most cashiers (not to mention the marquee) shortened Peter Brook's 1967 film The Persecution And Assassination Of Jean Paul Marat As Performed By The Inmates Of The Asylum Of Charendon Under The Direction Of The Marquis De Sade to Marat/Sade.

    They must have been thinking about those poor cashiers when they filmed For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow is Enuf retaining only the first three words for the title.

    Having worked the box office relatively recently (11 or so years ago), I can tell you that probably the most irritating thing we dealt with wasn't lengthy film titles, but rather stupid questions. To be fair, this was in the internet age, so most people knew how to look up the movie titles.

    If it's anything like my local multiplex with its endless advertising, self-promotion, and hyperkinetic trailers, the correct answer is 7:20.

    I'd imagine the movie "?" led to some interesting replies ...
