Can we view an actor's movie page in thumbnail view also? That is, on the computer?
Currently, I can only see it as a list.

In the mobile app, this is already available and it is nice to see the movie covers also while browsing the movie list on an actor's page.

Also, other listings such as the Watchlist and self lists can all be viewed in thumbnail views or list views.

Thanks for help.

Beside the Filmography title on a Name page, you will see a dropdown displaying 'Show by'. If you change the option to anything except by Job (which is the default), the resulting list shows with the poster at the left of each item. Each item is much larger than the default as it also includes the Plot.

Great. That works. It almost solved the problem. Thanks.

Just 2 small questions.

1) Similar as in the Job view, I would only like to see the listing as Actor only (not everything else  like Producer, Self, Soundtrack etc). This list is not useful for me because I cannot distinguish in which films has the artist acted and in which he is the producer or done soundtrack etc.
The list is also very huge to handle. So how can I only see the 'As Actor' results?

2) In the Listing as shown by Year instead of Job, can we apply multiple filters at a time? For example I want to see all listings including both TV Movies and Feature Films. But when I click on one of the filter, the page suddenly starts t refresh and doesn't give me time to select another filter.

Thanks for help.

The first option in the Refine option is Job Type: just check Actor (Actress) in that option.

In several of the options you can check multiple options, but these are 'anded' together. For example, if you check Actor and Director in Job Type you will only see Titles where the person both directed and had a role.

Obviously, a Title cannot be both a Feature and a TV Movie, so you can only select one of them. All I can suggest is that you look at the number of Titles in each group (shown beside the check box) to see if you need to do two checks.

We can edit the URL to specify:

   title_type=movie,tvMovie

That will produce a listing that includes
feature films and also includes TV movies,
as in this example:

http://www.imdb.com/filmosearch?role=nm0009918&sort=moviemeter,asc&mode=simple&title_typ...
