Cinematographer Bill Butler ('Grease', 'Hot Shots!', 'Stripes'), born in 1931. Links:

- http://www.filmreference.com/film/21/Bill-Butler.html
- http://www.allmovie.com/cg/avg.dll?p=avg&sql=2:83706

Good day, Sirs,

according to IMDB Bill Butler was born on April, 7th 1921, not 1931.

I personally do not trust wikipedia in such issues. But can't make my choice between IMDB and filmreference.

Is there another source, or can filmreference safely be preferred to IMDB?

Love, bbbbb

Not to be confused with the prolific film editor of the same name: Bill Butler ('A Clockwork Orange', 'A Touch of Class') - no birth year found yet.

Some more confirming 1931

Could only find one more saying 1921
http://movies.nytimes.com/person/83706/Bill-Butler/biography

In one of the interviews on the Cinematographer Guild web site he does mention being taken by his parents to see The Jazz Singer (1927)


Wikipedia now backs up the 1921 date. Also, 1931 is a bit late for his parents to have been homesteaders. I'm going with 1921. If there are objections, I attend University of Iowa and can check on his graduation date.

I need to document another invlaid BY

Jeff Daniels 1955

I have had several discussions with Primetime21 and it appears that although this BY is valid from the perspective that this is the year he was born it is invalid because it is not needed.

I can find no place where this is documented, not in this thread or contributions.  I have searched the entire site.

Also there is only a single entry for "Jeff Daniels" in IMDB.

With all that being said this should be added to the invalid BY list

IMDB lists 15 Jeff Daniels. Are you sure that none of them are credited in a role we track for something available on DVD?

well only one actor.  I looked throigh the CLT and the only Jeff Daniels in a crew role was "Escanaba in da Moonlight", but he directed, produced and wrote that as well as acted in it.

I sure did not see anthing in the CLT.  But what is wierd is usually a google search reveals if it was added via a contribution, but none were found.  So I can't find documentation of the need.  Primetime21 has not been able to as well

CLT shows a hidden title (UPC: 8-594067-260177) with Jeff Daniels in cast as Waiter 1.



This is definitely not famous Jeff Daniels.

According to IMDb his BY is 1981, but I can't find any other site to confirm this.

John Carpenter (no BY available) of "Network" et al:

Also John/Johnny Carpenter, born 1914.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0139383/
It looks like Night of the Ghouls is his only film that made it to DVD. CLT shows 0 results for Johnny Carpenter," so "John" is the common name.

Good find, I for the life of me could not find that one and did not see the hidden title in the 29 pages of CLT entries for Jeff Daniels.



Using IMDB for the alt. names for the porn actor, the CLT results are as follows.

Jeff Daniels =7
Luke Cummings = 0 Not this porn actor
Jake Douval =0
Daniel Jefferson =1 (Crew)
Mike Luckras =0
Petr Lukas =1
Lukas Wink =0

So according to CLT his common name is Jeff Daniels and a BY is needed to separate them in the database.
FYI: One of the profiles for this porn actor has a BY of 1994 attached to him.
Profile with the 1994 BY is: The Private Life Of Josh Elliot UPC# 826467-101322.
Clearly this is an error.
EDIT: Added the notes for that contribution.
"Notes are from DVD liner.  Jeff Daniels (1994) is used to differentiate from mainstream movie star Jeff Daniels."

Another site for the 1981 BY

If one has common name "Tom Priestley" and one is "Tom Priestly," why do we need a birth year? Is this a typo?
