Dave Bethell (nm6595867)

Dave Bethel (nm0079167)

David Bethel (nm1005950)


I believe that there has been some confusion with at least two of the above names.

  • Dave Bethell – one credit as a technical adviser 
  • Dave Bethel – three credits as a set medic, including one in New Mexico; two credits involved with snakes ('Heck's Way Home' (tt0116510), a Canadian movie) 
  • David Bethel – sixteen credits, mainly in set construction and/or as a set medic; has attributes as ‘ Dave Bethel’ and ‘ Dave L. Bethel’; also has several credits based in New Mexico/ Santa Fe

My gut reaction would be that Dave Bethel is actually two different people – the snake handler and the set medic. 

The snake handler appears to be Canadian -


Dave Bethel’s set medic credits should be given to David Bethel, as they seem to be for the same person. I think the IMDB entry should be ‘David Bethel’, given the presence of attributes mentioned above. 

Dave Bethell – I wonder whether his technical adviser credit is for working with snakes. There is minimal information on the IMDB entry, ‘All in a Week's Work (2014)’ (tt3830048) which is a horror short.

There is also an unlinked songwriting credit on each of the entries below for a ‘Dave Bethell’. Given the above information, this is not likely to be one of the above, but I cannot rule it out.

  • "The Fashion Fund" (2014) {Women's Fashion Week (#3.6)} (tt5318208)
  • "The Fashion Fund" (2014) {Winner Announced (#3.10)} (tt5318220)

Hi Graham -

Thanks for reporting the duplicate listings.  We have now split the credits to differentiate between the individual who worked as a snake handler from those of the individual who worked as a medic; however, concerning the Soundtrack entry and the individual listed as a 'technical advisor' as we cannot verify that these credits belong to the same individual we will leave these page listings separate as-is.

If you find information to prove otherwise, you are welcome to submit the applicable soundtrack hyperlink and name merge updates through our online Update form.  Cheers!

Thanks, Michelle.

I expected that was about all that could be done.
