** The FlyingDutchman, which, unlike in the original legend, does not move through the air, and is not Dutch. Its captain is a Welshman with a Scots accent. ''Flying'' in those days, meant 'fast' as often as it meant 'moving through the air' (and very occasionally still does, in phrases such as "flying start"). The equivalent today would be "Racing Dutchman."

* ''Film/{{Zombi 2}}'' (known in America as ''Zombie'', known in some other places as ''Zombie Flesh Eaters'') is not the second "''Zombi''" film, it's the first in its series. Romero's ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' was released in Europe under the title Zombi, and Italian director Creator/LucioFulci decided to capitalize on its success by claiming that his film was actually a sequel or prequel. Which it wasn't.

* One of the three [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk Incredible Hulk]] TV movies, ''The Trial of the Incredible Hulk'', plays with this trope. Bruce...or rather, "David" Banner[[note]]Bruce is portrayed as being his middle name...just like in comics, although in the latter, he prefers to go by his middle name, rather than his (real) first name, Robert.[[/note]] is awaiting trial for a crime he didn't commit (with ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} as his lawyer, no less), but neither he, nor the Hulk are ever actually seen in a courtroom, let alone on actual trial. That said, there technically was a trial with the Hulk (now in his trademark purple pants) being tried, but that turned out to just be a [[AllJustADream dream sequence]].

* Ain't no ghosts in ''ComicBook/GhostWorld''. It works pretty well as a metaphor though.

** Jedi Knights are really more like warrior monks than they are knights. Unlike traditional knights in the real world, their status is not bestowed by a king or ruler; Jedi are an insular society unto themselves. Nor do they employ titles such as "sir". They also don't own much in the way of personal possessions or property, both of which lords may reward knights for loyalty. Also, knights were very much part of a royal's court, unlike Jedi who were not supposed to be involved in politics. Real knights served the wishes of their lord, lady, or monarch. Jedi do exist to serve, but they serve of their own accord and in whatever way they see fit. They are not really at anyone's beck and call and all VIPs of the Old Republic know that.

* ''The Curse Of The Cat People'' doesn't involve a curse, and you'd be hard-pressed to see what it had to do with any "cat people" unless you saw ''Cat People'', the film it was a sequel to, first: Irena, one of the characters from the first film, appears as a ghost in the sequel... But her involuntary shape-shifting into a cat is never brought up or seen, and it's totally irrelevant to the plot at any rate.

* ''Film/
WitchfinderGeneral'' was also released as ''The Conqueror Worm'' despite having little to do with the Creator/EdgarAllanPoe poem, although a portion of it is recited toward the movie's end. Creator/VincentPrice was in it, so presumably it was titled that way to attract fans of all the Creator/RogerCorman-directed Poe adaptations he'd starred in.
