I have found some entries with already accepted BY in the database that haven't been mentioned in this thread yet and some of these accepted BY seem doubtful.  What do you think of this list?

Alex Carter (1964)
John Cleese (1939)
James Cromwell (1940)
Morgan Freeman (1937)
Steve Harris (1956)
David Jensen (1952)
Ben Johnson (1918)
James MacDonald (1901)
Rob Schneider (1963)
Ian Whyte (1971)
Robin Williams (1952)
Stuart Wilson (1946)

James Cromwell
Morgan Freeman
Steve Harris
David Jensen
Ben Johnson
James MacDonald
Rob Schneider 2 but second one not on DVD?
Ian Whyte
Robin Williams
Stuart Wilson

Only checked IMDb but most of them seem to have a few with the same name but of coarse these would all need checking with other sources i think some of them are not available on DVD so don't matter to us.

And the BY in the database for Robin Williams seems invalid.  Other sources refer to 1951 instead of 1952.

Indeed, I don't see any need to have birth years for Rob Schneider and John Cleese. The others do all seem to be necessary, I believe. Especially the birth year for Morgan Freeman hasn't been propagated much yet, but that really is another Morgan Freeman in 'The Big Hit'...

Both birth years 1951 and 1952 have been accepted into the database - for each of them a number links that support it can easily be found - apparently no-one is absolutely sure which year is the correct one. As of yet, I went with 1951, but if anyone can supply definitive proof either way, I'd be much obliged. Note that the need for a birth year for Robin Williams is documented in this thread.

If there not on DVD how can they be in the database?

What i meant was if you have two actors called John Smith one of them's work is available on DVD the others isn't the one that is not on DVD dose not matter to use and obviously the one in the database would therefor not require a BY (unless the other subsequently had a DVD release)

This is precisely what I don't understand.  I discovered that while I was cleaning my BY list, I tried to submit all BY that were not documented in this thread to check what needs to be documented and I came up with that list.  Don't worry, I cancelled my submission.   But I wasn't comfortable with this list and it is why I submitted it here for discussion.
