A movie called THE HIDDEN ROOM (1949) just showed up on YouTube under its original title, OBSESSION. I didn't know about its alternate title, so I did an IMDb title search for the word "obsession." But it didn't come up. I had to find it by looking for it in the filmography of its star, Robert Newton.

Why wouldn't the movie appear in the results when we search "obsession"?

Hi J.,

MAthePA is correct, if you are searching for a one-word title it is definitely best to use exact title searches.
