Re: Wrong movie is showing in search

Unfortunately, some providers don't put accurate information in their metadata, so the wrong information is shown. I've seen it with OTA TV channel guides showing "The Manchurian Candidate", claiming it's the Frank Sinatra version, when in reality it's the much newer Denzel Washington version. That's just one of many examples I've seen, and yes online providers make the same mistakes. Unfortunately, there's little that can be done by anyone other than the providers themselves.

If you don't mind ads, Pluto TV is showing and playing the correct John Wayne "In Harm's Way" (1965) movie.
