While searching for the movie “ Christine” I only get a list of actresses named Christine. If I then search for Rebecca Hall, the movie Christine is listed as one of hers!

When I look at the IMDB search field there is another field off to the right to indicate part of the film data is being searched.  If I was looking for an actress named Christine I would make sure it said "Name" in that field.   If I was searching for a film called Christine I would change that field to "Titles." so it would search for films with "Christine" in the title.

I was using the iphone IMDB app & it appears there isnt a “drop down box” or other means of narrowing the search?

I tried on the app, and while the films called did not appear in the suggestions that appear as you type, they were listed first in the results after I hit "Search".

Hi David,

This is correct, the IMDb app does not offer an advanced search option at this time. However, for this search in particular, I've confirmed that while the suggestion search for "Christine" shows mainly pages for individuals, the complete results (once you select "Search" on the keyboard) do show the title "Christine" as the first result. I've included screenshots of this below:

 

Let us know if we can offer any further help!

Oftentimes the film is known by another name or its original language name. In this case, you’re right, it’s best to search for an actor in the film.
