Best Book or Film Title?

Book and film titles can make or break a work.

The Steve Martin/Eddie Murphy film "Bowfinger" probably suffered greatly because of its ill-chosen name.

What do you think is the best book or film title you've ever seen?

Some nominees for the book category:

The Last Camel Died at Noon by Elizabeth Peters
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter Thompson
Chronicles of Wasted Time by Malcolm Muggeridge
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
The Spy Who Came In From the Cold by John LeCarre
