Dear folks

I noticed that sometimes words in movie title are put in an interesting order, like this:

Searchers, The (1956):

I assume that it actually means "The Searchers".
Just wonder what's the reason behind this. I am sure there is a reason since I've seen quite some of them:)

thanks

That is done when the list is alphabetical. One would not want to search on a, an, or the, because they are too common. :wink:
