I tried to change two character names in Borg vs. McEnroe in submission 181210-210714-296000 but they were declined due to a lack of evidence.

First, James Sobel Kelly is credited as "Phil - John's Agent" not what is currently listed as "Phil - McEnroe's agent" as you can see here:


Alexander Wallén is credited as Alexander Wallén not Wallén Alexander and needs no "as" attribute so it should be deleted (as I tried to do)



Though I didn't correct this, the title should be "Borg vs. McEnroe" not "Borg vs McEnroe" as can be seen by the title menu.

Hi Adrian,

Regarding your last request, it might be turned down: "vs." is the American graphy, which does not apply for instance in French. In an abbreviation, you always put a final dot in English (at least American), where in French, you only put it whenever it can stand for missing letters.
Since "vs" stands for the Latin versus, there is no missing letter after the final s, hence no final dot.

IMDb states that the film is primarily a Swedish one, so the swedish graphy (which I do not know!) might apply here, and therefore "vs" might be correct.

Vincent,

You may be entirely correct in what you say but none of that is actually applicable. The original title of the film is "Borg McEnroe" without the "vs" at all. This is probably the original Swedish title. What IMDb shows me, due to regional settings, should be the US English title but it is not. As seen from the screenshot of the US DVD, it should be "Borg vs. McEnroe" with the period included. I'm going to guess it was a mistake by whoever entered the US alternate title.

Thanks Adrian, I've made the edits to the cast items now and amended the USA (imdb display title) to include the "vs.".
