Removing some odd linking[edit]

I'm trimming some explanatory text which is hidden here within links, like this:

[[Heart of Darkness#Adaptation - The CBS television anthology Playhouse 90 aired a 90-minute loose adaptation in 1958. This version, written by Stewart Stern, uses the encounter between Marlow (Roddy McDowall) and Kurtz (Boris Karloff) as its final act, and adds a backstory in which Marlow had been Kurtz's adopted son. The cast includes Inga Swenson and Eartha Kitt.|Heart of Darkness]]

As best I can tell, these explanations all exist in the relevant movie articles themselves - it's details about what aired when, and who adapted what story to which format. These details don't belong in a list like this, and they're not visible anyway, except when editing the page - they don't show in footnotes or references, they're solely hidden within these links. That's weird and pointless, so I'm trimming it, and removing it with working links to the films, when I can. Jessicapierce (talk) 17:25, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
