There is a reference about the claims against "Slaughterhouse Five" in "Footlose" (1984) by Herbert Ross, when some very "religious" parents want to ban the book.

 

Mr. Gurntz: He was trying to teach *that* book down at the school.

Mrs. Allyson: Slaughterhouse-Five, isn't that an awful name?

Ren: Yeah it's a great book... Slaughterhouse-Five, it's a classic.

Mr. Gurntz: Do you read much?

Mrs. Allyson: Maybe in another town, it's a classic.

Ren: In *any* town.

Mr. Gurntz: Tom Sawyer is a classic!

"Steven Spielberg’s Gremlins, whose ante-meridian mischief makers were loosely based on Dahl’s creatures."

As far as I know, "The Gremlins" is a movie by Joe Dante, from a screenplay by Chris Columbus.

The name is only "Cicciolina", not "La Cicciolina" and it doesn´t mean anything. It is something like a wordplay between "Ciccina" and "Coccolina", like a sweet nickname. And it was used like a proper stage name without article, something like... "Madonna". (I know, I said it)

"A Fistful of Dollars (original title: The Magnificent Stranger)" is not accurate.

The original Italian title of the movie is "Per un pugno di dollari", that means exactly "A Fistful of Dollars".
