Which title is better?


I noticed this documentary while looking over the schedule on Turner Classic Movies:

tcm.com banner describing the movie 'No Maps On My Taps (1978), with the note that it is 'Also known as: No Maps On My Taps'.
TCM does make the documentary, about jazz tap dancing, sound interesting. But do remember that I am a person who finds every documentary and every bit of nonfiction interesting. I would happily watch 65 minutes on the North American Numbering Plan even if it didn’t include rare footage from the 1930s.

What do you think? I get where No Maps On My Taps makes sense as a title for this film, but it’s hard to see where that’s preferable to No Maps On My Taps.

I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there. He/him.

        1. You’ve got better eyes than I have. Although the other day I discovered the short description and long description for a 1915 Mack Sennett film (Dirty Work In A Laundry) had gotten out of synch, with the long description clearly the plot of some modern stoner comedy instead. How? Even which one? I can’t guess.
