Basterdized spelling?

August date for Quentin Tarantino World War II movie

The director’s oddly spelled World War II epic “Inglourious Basterds” stars actor Brad Pitt, and production began in Europe in October.

What, no spell check on your typewriters? It is clear that no one with any knowledge of English wrote and/or edited the Quentin Tarantino story.


That’s the spelling Tarantino is using for the title; hence our story’s reference to it as “oddly spelled.” GBU Editor
