New York Times flubs famous film title in TV column about the Oscars

The New York Times flubs a famous film title in a TV column about the Oscars:

The TV Watch column in some editions on Monday, about the telecast of the Academy Awards ceremony, where Octavia Spencer won the Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in ''The Help,'' misstated part of the title of a 1967 film to which ''The Help'' was compared. It is ''Guess Who's Coming to Dinner,'' not ''Guess Whose Coming to Dinner.''
