And again, genre decisions that are baffling

Decisions by the genre list manager continue to be problematic.  Here's three recent examples of rejections that should be reversed:

Romance for

Two Weeks in Another Town (1962)

-- has three love stories: the Kirk Douglas-Rosanna Schiaffino-George Hamilton love triangle, the ex-husband-ex-wife love with Kirk Douglas and Cyd Charisse. AND the husband-wife relationship between Edward G. Robinson and Claire Trevor.  (Also look at the genres of its "sort of" prequel The Bad and the Beautiful (1952)

The Low Down (2000)

Identified as "a romantic dramedy" in its Variety review.  Frank, the hero, has the main romantic relationship with Ruby, his female real estate agent, with "many scenes of the pair sitting in bed," having sex and trying to work out their relationship.

Comedy for

Amy (1997/II) (dir.Nadia Tass)

From the Variety review: "straddling straight drama, comedy and elements of musical fantasy, the film sits at times uneasily between those genres," and it is also called "a quirky comedy" that is "whimsical."

Please add the identified genres to these specific titles.  Thanks.

Hello Phil Boroff
Have you tried adding these genres yourself? It's really quite easy.
