Please note that the original title in the opening sequence is "Echafaud", not "echafaud", "échafaud" or "Échafaud"


In this case, you need to follow rules.

Rule: "For non-English titles, use capitalization rules common to the language of the title. “Tout va bien” is correctly capitalized. “Tout Va Bien” is not.
In this case, you have to follow French capitalization rules, so change to lower case the E of Echafaud (é in this case). So the original title is "Ascenseur pour l'échafaud" that you should use in your list.

What is funny, is that this correct title is the one we find in 4 occasions in the database, againt one "Ascenseur pour l'echafaud" for this profile which should evidently be "Ascenseur pour l'échafaud" :

I always have been on topic as you wrote "I have already started to update original titles". This topic has a list of movies for which you gave wrong information. To correct it is the least we can do for the database.

I can add that other movies in your list do not follow Invelos rules :

Le Cercle Rouge                      should be                  Le Cercle rouge
Le clan des Siciliens                                                  Le Clan des Siciliens
Le guignolo                                                            Le Guignolo
Les quatre cents coups                                            Les quatre cents Coups
La Tulipe Noire                                                        La Tulipe noire
La course à l'échalote                                              La Course à l'échalote
Les dimanches de Ville d'Avray                                  Les Dimanches de Ville d'Avray
Les Enfants Terribles                                                Les Enfants terribles
La folie des grandeurs                                              La Folie des grandeurs
Plein soleil                                                              Plein Soleil
Le silence de la mer                                                  Le Silence de la mer

French title capitalisation rules can be confusing.

So first word and nouns are capitalized, right?  Why is l'échalote lower case?

I'll try to summarize :

First word and names are capitalized :
Chambre à part
Bienvenue à Gattaca
When first word is a definite article (La, Le, Les, L'...), first noun is capitalized. If article is undefinite (Un, Une, Des...), first noun is not capitalized
Le Nom des gens
Une affaire de coeur
Exception : if the title is a sentence, no noun is capitalized (except names):
La fille qui rêvait d'un bidon d'essence et d'une allumette
Le jour où la Terre s'arrêta
If there is an adjective before the first capitalized noun, it is also capitalized :
La Jeune Fille et la mort
Le Cercle rouge

You are absolutely right. There are 26 confirmed titles, with 23 unconfirmed CLT titles for Henri Decae and Henri Decaë remaining, so we have a winner.

When I originally posted this topic, the CLT result for Henri Decae/Henri Decaë was 53/57. At the moment the 'score' is 44/42 (regardless of capitalization  )

I want to thank everybody who researched their collection to give an answer to the question in the original post. Thank you Yves, for the spelling lesson.

This topic will stay open for additions, and I will update the results as they come along.
