Michael Bentt isn't credited in Million Dollar Baby. According to the IMDb, he's in it playing a boxer, but that is an uncredited role and so is invalid.

As they aren't mutually exclusive, I would do that.

There is director Peter Collinson (Fright, Italian Job) born in 1936
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Collinson_(Regisseur)
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0172772/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

and I found another Peter Collinson in Visual Effects in "Berberian Sound Studio". As the beforementioned died in 1980, can't be the same.

Suggesting 1936 for the first one

That sounds great, but it doesn't seem to be correct. Have you actually verified that credit, do you own a copy of 'Berberian Sound Studio'? Because this is only acceptable if there's actually a verified credit in there for a Peter Collinson, and I don't believe there is. The credits *do* show a Peter Collins (not Peter Collinson), and he's credited as a "Digital Intermediate Assistant". So not only is there no credit for Peter Collinson - it's for Peter Collins - but it's also a job that doesn't qualify for entry in DVD Profiler... None of the other alledged "Visual Effects" credits in these 'Berberian Sound Studio' profiles seems valid either - it seems to be a case of bad data being copied over to other profiles. So if there's no valid credit for a Peter Collinson in 'Berberian Sound Studio', then the other Peter Collinson doesn't need a birth year.

There is a Peter Collinson listed in the UK Artificial Eye Blu-ray release (5021866053400) as 'Visual Effects', so it could be that is bad data in the profile. I'll have a look at the credits and check.

I've just been through the credits on Berberian Sound Studio and there is no Peter Collinson listed. As such, there is no need for the director of that name to have a birth year

The contribution notes which were quoted in the OP were mine for Trail of the Pink Panther.

The replies are one of the reasons why I hate the Classic genre in DVD Profiler and why it isn't assigned to anything in my local. I would love there to be an update which removed it!

To whom it may concern:

Kevin O'Neill is incorrectly listed as Kevin O'Neil in the BY list, which means that he is misidentified in my CastCrewQuery program as not being listed in the BY list.

Not sure who is maintaining the list of accepted birth years nowadays. Is it still Kluge?


Yes I am. All fixed, thank you


Am I the only one having trouble with your BY page? I've disabled extensions and cleared my cache, but it still lags. When I open the page, I can't click on anything. Before this, I could click on any letter hyperlink and page # info. Now, nothing is clickable, even though the hyperlinks are still there.

I'm using Google Chrome and don't have any problems.

Thanks. It looks like her common name is Evelyn Stewart.

According to an interview, she changed her name to the anglicised one at the beginning of her career and it seems the bulk of her appearances are as Evelyn Stewart, but I wanted a thread to make sure. According to Wikipedia, she also used the names Arianna and Arianna Galli, though seemingly each of these for only one film.

Evelyn Stewart
The Bloodstained Butterfly (Una farfalla con le ali insanguinate)
Syndicate Sadists (Il giustiziere sfida la città)
The Psychic (Sette note in nero) a.k.a. Seven Notes in Black
The Case of the Scorpion's Tail (La coda dello scorpione)
Footprints on the Moon (Le orme)
The Sweet Body of Deborah (Il dolce corpo di Deborah)

Evelyne Stewart
The Night Child (Il medaglione insanguinato)

Ida Galli
La dolce vita

Adios Gringo
Assassination
Battle Force
Cagliostro
Ciak Mull (Ciakmull - L'uomo della vendetta)
De Filippo - Fantasmi a Roma
Les derniers jours d'un empire: Collection Peplum (Il crollo di Roma)
Django Shoots First (Django spara per primo)
Fantômes à Rome (Fantasmi a Roma)

Caligula is a drama with adult (pornographic) scenes, Salon Kitty is a drama/war film with adult scenes and something like Frivolous Lola is a romantic comedy, also with an adult classification.

Because a parent profile is basically an empty box and all the information – except the packaging data (title, rating details, overview) – belongs to the child profiles, I think the profiles should be largely devoid of data, from video to audio to genres.

I think that the mentioned above is the only data that should be on a box set.
I am even reserved about including "rating details" in text for a whole set of movies among which that can differ. E.g. "Strong Language and Moderate Horror".
Also, I am reserved and were actually always against the rule to type in the production year for the oldest title in the set. (Why do that?) As well as country of origin, which definitely also can vary among the movies.
Production studios and genres should also be empty, for sure, along with any sort of Video Format data, just to rule out any confusion and to stay consistent, if anything.
In other words I think the rules for box sets need an update.

I agree that the rules need an update. At present, if there is a box set with an 18 certificate for (to use your example) "Strong Language and Moderate Horror", but the set contains a PG certificate comedy, the rules say that it must have the same rating as the parent. This would be patently absurd and the rules should be designed to reflect a situation like that.

I have submitted contributions (which have all been approved) where the overview on the parent profile has a paragraph or two for each film and I have put child profiles with only the corresponding section from the parent's overview. That makes sense to me and, seemingly, to the people responsible for screening the contributions.

Wouldn't it look a little silly to have a list of names and then a group divider saying "Special Performance by" followed by one name and then other cast members after the end divider?

I'm going to have to go with other on this one.

A special appearance by (say) Patrick Stewart doesn't mean he's playing himself.  Neither does it mean he's playing Picard. 

Quite a few actors appear in Curb Your Enthusiasm playing themselves (Ted Danson, for example), but others (like Steve Coogan) appear playing a specific character.  I think the credit is very specific to the character being played, and I don't think a single rule will cover everything.

This is very true. I'm thinking specifically of cases when an actor or celebrity makes a guest appearance as themselves, not a variation of themselves or obviously playing a specific role.

However, when looking at a show like Extras, someone like Kate Winslet is playing a version of Kate Winslet, but is still credited as 'Herself'.

If they appear in the film as themselves then Himself/Herself/Themselves, plus in this case a "Special Performance by" group divider.

If it's just one person, then it's not a group, so no group divider.

Agreed. A group divider would be unnecessary and messy in the credits.

In this case, it's just whether Common should be credited as Himself, Special Appearance by, or nothing. Currently, the profile doesn't have a role for him.

I've often seen (and contributed) these appearances with putting "Himself" or "Herself", (Curb Your Enthusiasm has many people credited as such) but wanted to see if there was a consensus. What you think the role should be for a credit like this, where the person has appeared as themselves?

Topic Replies: 16, Topic Views: 3241
Sometimes people guest star and are credited as 'Himself' or 'Herself' (like Brett Favre in There's Something about Mary or Chuck Norris in Dodgeball), and sometimes it just says 'Special Appearance by' or "Guest Appearance by'. In that instance, should the role field be blank or say 'Himself' or 'Herself'?

I've started using 4K Ultra HD (and Blu-ray) to match the media types in Filters.

That's what I have been doing for a while and why I think 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray make the most sense for the disc information slots. It is my interpretation that we describe in the format in those cases, and things like the episode numbers in others.

UHD or Ultra HD by themselves doesn't mean a thing without 4K in front of it. Once 8K hits the market harder it won't let you know which is which.

Keeping in mind, that physical disc will disapear

I hope that day never comes!
