Confirmed:
45 of 84

There is also something strange that the 45th entry and 53rd entry have the same link.

Dan,
Isn't this just a List, and lists can have duplicate entries. I'm imagining one or more humans adding her to the list at 2 different moments. Don't know why you'd think the links should be different. It's the same photo. Or do you mean that if you click on the second copy of the photo, it says she's #45 in the list, but when you go sequentially from the first photo to the second, then you get a different position number (53)?

What does the rm stand for in the id#? It's how all images are identified. tt is title, nm is name, rm is ...? 
ram..., rem..., rim..., rom..., rum..., rym...

@bderoes,

As Bret indicates below, the IMDb Editors removed the duplicate, the one at position #45.

It hadn't occurred to me that the same image in an image list would have the same link. After thinking about it, the links have to be the same given the way IMDb implemented media view for images lists.

I'm not certain what rm represents. Maybe a member of the technical staff could answer that question.
