I watched RBG the other day and I was cleaning up the credits as I watched. One of the existing credits is:

Limbaugh, Rush              Himself               (archive footage) (voice)

This seems wrong to me because he does not actually appear in video, just his voice. There is an (archive voice) credit so I tried to change it over to that and also note that he is uncredited. The change would be

Limbaugh, Rush             Himself               (archive voice) (uncredited)

This was declined but I'm not sure why if the original was accepted. Rush's voice is distinct enough and used in a way that anyone who knew would recognize the voice. If my correction doesn't meet the guidelines, then the entire credit needs to be removed.

If Rush can imitate President Clinton........Who's to say someone was not imitating Rush?
On Pinky and the Brain we have a spot on Orson Wells imitation.
The credit should be removed completely in my opinion.
But, what do I know. Just speaking logically.

You may think you are being logical, but you aren't really.

If you can't tell the difference between Pinky and the Brain's imitation of Orson Wells and the actual Orson Wells, I'd say you have heard much of Wells. It always came of as an imitation.

Second, RBG is a political documentary and they obviously chose audio clips of Rush for a reason. There is little logical reason to believe they hired an impersonator to impersonate Rush instead of using actual clips of his radio show.

Hi Adrian,

The correct way to list this is (archive sound) (uncredited), that moves the credit to the archive footage bucket on a name page. I've changed this credit now.

Why does archive voice exist?
