Of all the letters, W certainly isn't the most popular of letters. Definitely not one that senior citizens and blond collegiates instantly shout out while watching Wheel of Fortune.
Yet, I must admit, the letter W is a strikingly attractive looking letter. It has far more character than some of those boring letters, like 'C' or 'O.'
After writing some well-commented post on the topic of Oliver Stone's movie upcoming presidential film "W," I've realized that I haven't noticed any comment on the other "W" titled films that show up one a search of imdb.com.
Oliver Stone's film is distinguishable from the other W-titled films in three ways.
Oliver Stone's W-film:
1. Has actual celebrities in it
2. People will actually see it
3. Oliver Stone & Company have place a period following the W so that the title looks like this: "W."
Previous W-titled pictures include.
W (1974) which to received a title modification when USA-television aired it, calling it "W is the Mark of Death." This film apparently is a suspense thriller staring Eugene Roche as a detective.
W (2003) appears to be a little seen edgy french film that involves a man who "accidentally" falls in love with a transvestite bartender.
W (1983) is a five minute short from Finland, and W (2004) is a 37 minute short from Finland.
The first 4 "W" films seem like definite passers. Will the period at the end and the cast be enough to distinguish this fifth W-film?
