"Title display language" does not work. I have my setting at English under my "site preferences", but your site still insists to show the titles in Poland - where I am situated. Very annoying, and it has been like this for a long time. Sometimes it seems at though it works, but usually only for a short time.

Can you help?

Thanx, i also found their FAQ about the same problem. However, their solutions does not work - nor their suggested alternative link that should bypass local languages :-(

Simple advice to IMDB programmers.
The problem is that for UK or US films, people specify something like
"(original title)  The Great Gatsby"
But don't specify UK or USA
That's why I'll have the french title displayed even though I put "USA" as my Title Display Country

So instead of having
Title display country non existent ==> Display title of user's country

Change your code to
Title display country non existent ==> Display World-Wide
if World-wide non existent either  ==> Display Original

In most cases it'll do the trick
