Hollywood's Movie Titles in Other Words

    Hollywood has had its problems specially among the movie industry, this trouble is particularly true among the writers.

    Back in the 80's and throughout history, Tinsel Town experienced turmoil, the top executives, movie makers and the writers couldn't come to terms hashing out agreements.  And all their disagreements and conflicts eventually lead to many writer's strikes. 

    The industry as a whole suffered.  Still, people demanded entertainment and movies, so teams of "scab" writers were brought in, interviewed, and set out to write movie scripts. 

    The forementioned band of writers efforts were not as accomplished as the public hoped for, so many films were compromised, hated and later shelved. 

    This mishap in history leads to this forum, what if these lesser known writers in cinema did write some of our favorite movies? 

    See if you can guess the real movie titles (as we know them) if these lesser known "discount" writers were still in demand.  And as always, feel free to add your own "scab" alternative movie titles along with their true better known names.

    Right again I (I mean the scabs) better be less exact with these titles.

    Ok try this one, "The absent of air in war-time season"-this one is alittle tougher.
