My grand list contains no movie titles enclosed by quotation marks, but that could be lazy me not entering them.
I did find one title that begins with a punctuation mark:
*batteries not included

I would suspect that many titles that are numbers are formally enclosed in quote marks. I checked "10" with Bo Derek and sure enough, the studio published title is "10" but all formal lists drop the punctuation. So actually reviewing studio lobby cards may be required to arrive at a definitive answer.

Is Waiting for "Superman" one of your two daBomb?

That's all I've got offhand but I will continue to ponder.

Oh yeah "10"

And now that you mention that I have a vague thought that I once saw a movie poster devoid of Bo Derek's sexiness but also with a very short title in quotes...

Yeah, that's one of them. The two I thought of are Waiting for "Superman" (2010) and "G" Men (1935).

For a contest I'm participating in, I'm looking for another title that starts with G (or at least, a title where the quotation marks start just before the letter G).

According to this page, G Men does not have a quote mark before it.

Contest? How exciting. I can't be of any help though, it seems.

It's one where they show you one letter from the poster, and you have to identify the movie. Here's the one I'm talking about: http://i.imgur.com/3uqffzd.gif

About as much as I trust a politician.

That one letter looks like it would be a western-type movie.

I thought the same...but while the general shape looks like standard Wild West fonts...they are usually solid block letters minus the stylized interior.
First thing that came to my mind was "Gunsmoke" but that was TV not a movie.

That might be Gone With the Wind. Original movie posters had the title in quotes, maybe because it was a book title?

Ah, not on my list. See post #1055040 in the "Last film..." thread. I had thought to look at some "G' movies and went to here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gone_with_the_Wind_(film)
This shows even the pre-release studio art didn't use quotation marks for the title. You had to see the right bit of art to get your answer, daBomb619. The link with the answer delivers me to

This http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0031381/ shows the quotes around the title for Gone with the Wind movie. A search for GWTW movie posters will bring up several variations, some with quotes, some without.

I couldn't use the link you provided either, daBomb.
