27990 on the end credits.

Then we've got a problem, because according to filmratings that number was given to "The Trip To Bountiful".

Screen Test (1985)(listed as rated R on filmratings with certificate #1815)

What's the problem with those numbers?

And it's either The Seducers (1962):
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056462

or The Seducers (1969):
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063707

The former is distributed by the same company mentioned in filmratings (Joseph Brenner Associates), and the latter was rated X in 1969, according to its U.S. poster (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063707/med...057954304/), which would fit perfectly with a number like #239, and could have been re-rated R in 1985 keeping the same number.

As usual with some of these obscure, long-forgotten films, digging up reliable information is a chore.

Editing as we go:
I found this piece of info:
https://thenewbev.com/blog/2017/09/absol...-mr-gross/

"Top Sensation aka The Seducers, which Brenner recut and would reissue in 1985."

So definitely the second one.

Okay, well that explains "The Seducers". But "Screen Test" was originally released in 1985 so it's not a case of a re-rate. I didn't think they were still using that numbering system that late into the decade. But the highest number I currently have is 1814, which was given to "Cannibal Holocaust" in 1984. Seems a little odd to me that they wouldn't give a newly released film a regular number in 1985.

Just noticed a mistake on AFI's site. They have the 1950 James Stewart movie "Harvey" listed as #4694 when in fact it's #14694.

Glad to get at least one of the missing early 52,000's. With the two we got this week that now leaves us with 75 missing numbers from the 52,000's.

Waiting patiently for #52044 and #53000. Lol

I just checked AFI, the 1955 film The Man with the Golden Arm is #20011 instead of #17011, accepting the fact that the film was approved in 1961. It was rejected by the PCA for some reasons. I was so late in the game.

In fact, #17011 was taken by the 11th chapter of the 1954 serial Riding with Buffalo Bill.

New titles for this week.

53007 The Starling
53053 Army Of The Dead
53056 The Misfits
53088 The Girl Who Believes In Miracles
53101 Initiation
53102 Vanquish

3rd consecutive small bulletin (6 of 8) now. Too many small ones for this year and I fear there will be another significant decrease in overall number of films at end of year (which is characterized by more than 8% decrease from previous year).

To me, the comparison between the current year (2021) and the previous year (2020) is rather disappointing. It shows a significant decrease of 26.47% from the previous year. Here's my scoreboard for the first 8 weeks of the year (1 rated film = 1 point, 1 re-rated film = 0.5).

So far, the high score for this year is 13 titles (12.5 points due to a re-rated one, 19 in previous year).

I've checked the IMDB for films released that year, set them alphabetically from Z-A, and still only managed to come up with three of the missing five. The ones I managed to find are The River, Runaway, and The Woman In Red.

What about these two? PG-13 1984

Thanks! Apparently I already had "The Sure Thing" but I did not have "Splitz". So with those two, and the three I previously found, 1984 PG-13 is now complete.

I'm going to put the contributions for numbers 1 to nearly 22,000 (PCA films) and NR films on hold until the complete database of MPA numbers is available online, which is unlikely to happen. For the time being, I'll be focusing on rated films.
