Thanks Merrik, the other titles are somewhat rare. Tomorrow I'll do some research on those films.

As far as I can see now. Not in Front of the Children, Twilight Zone and Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film are released on DVD. Lady Boss and The Sea Gypsies are available on VHS only, at least for now.

I just verified her credit in The Twilight Zone. I could have a look on the DVD.



I also found a streaming video of Halloween: The Shape of Horror (2006): http://vimeo.com/1190206.

Furthermore, I could see the German DVD of Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film (2006). Nancy Loomis/Kyes isn't credited at all in this documentary. There are some clips of Halloween that shows her, but uncredited.

Does no one own the DVD of Not in Front of the Children (1982)?

Not in Front of the Children isn't in the system though, so for the purposes of DVDProfiler, it doesn't matter whether or not she's credited in either form. When and if it got added, that would be a different story. We can only find the most commonly credited form with the profiles in the system, because how are we supposed to verify titles that aren’t?

As far as I'm able to see, these are the credits in the system with a breakdown of correct/incorrect:

Nancy Kyes: 3 Verified as Correct
Twilight Zone (Correct)
Assault on Precinct 13 (Incorrect)
Halloween (Incorrect)
Halloween 2 (Incorrect)
Halloween 3 (Correct)
Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (Correct)

Nancy Loomis: 4 Verified as Correct
Assault on Precinct 13 (Correct)
The Fog (Correct)
Halloween (Correct)
Halloween II (Correct)

As of right now, for our purposes, her common name appears to safely be Nancy Loomis (with the other stuff obviously being IMDB cloned). If and when the other stuff she’s appeared in, ever gets released on DVD or added to the system, yeah, that could change and stuff in the system would have to be changed, but the same can be said about any actor, and I don’t like playing the wait and see game.

At least this is the way I’ve always understood it.

Thanks for your reply and I agree with it 100%.

Halloween: The Shape of Horror (2006) should be left out, because it's a short documentary. It's unlikely that it will ever get an 'own' DVD release, more as an extra feature.

So, for now it's Nancy Loomis (4 to 3).

Not in Front of the Children: Nancy Kyes as Reporter
The dvd was released in the UK.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

Perfect tie! - Correct counting of the profiles leads to:

Nancy Kyes: 53
Halloween 3 - 39
Halloween: 25 Years of Terror - 6
Not In Front of the Children - 1
The Twilight Zone - 7

Nancy Loomis: 264
Assault on Precinct 13 - 40
Fog, The - 60
Halloween - 77
Halloween 2 - 87
Complete list of Common Names  •  A good point for starting with Headshots

I swore at one point Keys was winning, since I locked all my profiles to Loomis feeling it would be correct. Must've been another thread.
