I'm about to write a dissertation about the bad translation of film titles (from English into Italian) but so far I've been able to find only one book that seems suitable (Translation goes to the Movies, by Micheal Cronin).
Could anyone recommend any interesting book/article on the subject? Of course, not only about film titles, but also the general strategies adopted in this field.
Thank you in advance.
