comment Difference between 「~のない~」 and 「~がない~」?
Strange, I just did it again, "顔がない男" gives me "About 43,700,000 results (0.10 seconds)" and "顔のない男" gives me "About 114,000 results (0.12 seconds)", both searches in quotes.  Top result I get for が is a photograph: [顔がない男] (matome.naver.jp/odai/2126630425930832201/2126637041231295603) Is the title of that photograph as 顔がない男 incorrect? How is it different than this book:  [顔のない男] (amazon.co.jp/…)

comment Difference between 「~のない~」 and 「~がない~」?
I'm a bit confused on the "logical scope" part to be honest, keeping in mind the movie title example (顔のないスパイ). Particularly because the example is so short (there are only two nouns and no numbers). I tried another similar example via Google Search. In quotes, in Google, 顔がない男 = 22 million results. 顔のない男 = 114,000 results. の, while far less used, seems to get more legitimate results (i.e. a book on Amazon titled 顔のない男). But the が version has plenty of people using it in forums and blogs. So both are clearly legal in terms of grammar, but something must be different.

comment Difference between 「~のない~」 and 「~がない~」?
Thank you for your answer. I'd still specifically like to know the difference in the case of ない. For example, the movie title I found: 「顔のないスパイ」 ("Spy without a face"). What would the difference be, if any, between that, and 「顔がないスパイ」? If the movie were titled that, instead of 顔のないスパイ, on a scale of "flat out wrong" to "perfectly correct", where would it fall? How, in concrete detail, would it change the meaning?
