Why call it'French Connection II' instead of 'The French Connection II'


reply

Or "The French Connection, Part II." Good question.

A mystery for the ages, no doubt.

The French Connection II is more awkward. Changed to roll off the tongue better?

reply

in the first movie the "connection" has already been established most notably when they actually show scenes in marseilles, chaunier is french and a drug smuggler and must be caught!!

no need for "the" in the sequel
