I agree with DJ Doena - I think it should be the 4K runtime - but for different reason.

A 4K film is definitely advertised for the 4K.  The blu-ray is an included bonus (even if most include them).  The blu-ray profile is a child profile, therefore it is not the "main" profile.  Thus the 4K is the main, and it's information should include the info for the film as it exists on that disc.

Okay, I'll go ahead and submit the parent for the Chaplin set then.  Thanks everyone.

So, I couldn't find this covered in the rules.

Are short film collections (ex. Looney Tunes Golden Collection or Chaplin's Essanay Comedies) considered like television collections, and all the information (cast/crew, audio, video) may be included in both parent and child profiles for the online?

Or are short film collections considered more like feature films, and all the information (cast/crew, audio, video) may only be in the child profiles for the online?

Personally, since short films are excluded from individual child profiles (per the rules on Alternate Profiles "Alternate versions are not used for contributing profiles for shorts or episode-level profiles for TV series.") I'm thinking they should be treated the same as television style box sets, but I'm also interested to see if others agree.

I would probably title it "A Star Is Born: 3 Film Collection" and leave the edition blank.

Based on the cover I find at the ebay listing below  I would agree with your title and edition for the parent profile.

Then make a child profile for each film, using alternate ID for the 2nd film since you say it is one disc.

Based on the cover here (https://shop.tcm.com/crossword-mysteries-3-movie-collection/767685165065), I would agree.

Parent profile title:  "Crossword Mysteries: 3-Movie Collection"

Then make a child profile for each film, using alternate IDs for the 2nd and 3rd films since you say it's one disc.

In general, I think if the diacritic mark for the character is not supported, simply go with the character without its diacritic.  It's incorrect, but it's the least incorrect possible.

Wardrobe Mistress/Master is generally a credit for the person in charge of keeping up with the costumes, making sure they're cleaned/pressed/together/ready for the production.  This is not a design credit.

We must consider that going forward, Invelos is not going to be involved at all.  In anything; rules related or not.  There are not very many regular contributors any longer, so if we have come to a consensus, my opinion is we should go by that, and run the rules as a community rather than waiting for guidance from above that is never going to come.  (Much like where I work, in 16 years I've never met the owner of our shop, we workers simply run the place as we see fit.  As long as he gets his money, Dan doesn't care what we do.)

Also, at least for modern films, non-original songs have licensing info in the credits.

(do animals have credits?  ).


A bit of a tangent, but in another thread, someone mentioned there are multiple horses credited as Trigger, not just Roy Rogers', so yes animal credits have to be audited just like the human credits.


That was me!  I have a couple of box sets of Roy Rogers films, and in doing the credits and determining common name for Gabby Hayes, I also found that Trigger needed a birthyear.  There's also a cat named Trigger as well as two other horses (both in films decades after the famous Trigger's death).

The problem with the CLT is that there is still a lot of incorrect, imdb mined info in the database.  You can see this in the many nickname variants that have single quotes ' rather than double quotes " around the name.  Almost invariably these are proven incorrect when the credits are checked.  (For example, look at the recent thread for Guinn Williams or the older thread for Gabby Hayes).  You can also see it in any profile where you have a credit for someone as archive footage.  Those are completely from imdb.

If profiles had been entered correctly we wouldn't have this problem.  We must remember that the CLT only scours the database, so it is only as good as the data that is entered.

I agree with the Family Name / Given Name, especially since the Japanese government in 2019 asked Western media to print their names in this fashion going forward (even if most don't seem to be listening).

Different versions of the film or someone made mistake here? 

That was me, sorry. I was using the title card rather than the cast list.

Me too.  Sorry.

At the moment there is no way to differentiate between local versions of the same language.  Spanish is entered as Spanish, whether it is Castilian or Central/South American Spanish.

I wish we had the options for all the languages on the table AiAustria linked.  I also really wish we had one called "Mixed" for films that have more than one language in the audio.

I was going to say exactly what AiAustria just did.  You can assign them fake birthyears in your local, but in the online there is no way to do it.

I upgraded to blu-ray (the UK edition of the Magick Lantern Cycle is region free), and none of my local friends wants my DVDs.  The other avenues I usually use to find homes for loose DVDs (VA, nursing home, rehab facility) are really not an appropriate home for these.

These are disc only.  There is no original packaging, no included booklets.  They will be shipped together in a plain two-disc blu-ray case (because that's the empty case I have on hand).  I will ship USPS media mail inside the USA at my cost. 

Please only respond if you have an interest in watching these.  These editions are out of print, and while I know that they're not really valuable without the packaging, I want them to go to someone who will watch them and enjoy them rather than just wanting to re-sell at a cheaper price than if they were complete.  I know how naive that sounds, but that's optimism speaking.

I agree with T!M, however all the pertinent information for the 1983 Scarface should be in the main profile, and the 1932 profile should be attached to it in the box set contents.  However, the profile is currently set-up wrong

So the set-up should be:

Scarface (1983)
- Scarface (1932)

Not as it is currently:

Scarface (box)
- Scarface (1983)
- Scarface (1932)

I don't own the set, so I'm not going to make changes, but if we go with the bonus feature film, which I agree is correct per the rules, then the rest of the profile must support that.

A Director of Photography gets that credit only if that appears on screen.

Someone gets credit for Cinematographer if the onscreen credit is "cinematography" or "photography."

The rules exclude camera operators for both credits.

I think it's mostly membership declining, which leads to less people contributing.  IMO, the hands-off approach Ken has taken to the software has not helped keep the community engaged, and a disengaged community results in people abandoning the contribution process and just using the software locally.
