Definite Article[edit]

@Roman Spinner: Contrary to what the article currently says, the on-screen titles give the film’s name as “The Strawberry Blonde”. It's true that various promotional materials omit the “The”, but the film itself includes it. Mathew5000 (talk) 10:09, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

My apologies for having moved the main title header. I appreciate your bringing this misstep to my attention and I will immediately submit a request for returning Strawberry Blonde to The Strawberry Blonde. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 01:54, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
It is a bit strange that Warner Bros. used "Strawberry Blonde" on the poster but "The Strawberry Blonde" in the film's credits. Even on the DVD release, the DVD case calls the film "Strawberry Blonde" on the front and the spine, but "The Strawberry Blonde" on the back. Mathew5000 (talk) 06:14, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
The inconsistency even extends to the film's trailer which also promotes it as Strawberry Blonde. Such lack of harmony has likewise been demonstrated in promotional materials for films with titles which feature colons, commas, question marks or exclamation points. An example can be seen in this poster for the 1959 film Go, Johnny, Go!, which has no comma after "Johnny", while the film's opening credits do depict a comma. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 02:13, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
