Fed up! I want my Godfather, John Ford company actor Jack Pennick to have a profile picture like most of his co-stars. I am willing to pay a one time fee to do so, but becoming a constant IMBDPro member just for that purpose seems impractical. I tried joining Pro, adding his picture (so happy), then quitting but the picture was then removed. This is not the photo I want to add.

Hi Tina,

Thanks for your post.

Unfortunately, we don't currently offer the option to post a single/multiple photo for any unsubscribed filmography page on our site. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. 

Please bear in mind that an IMDbPro subscription is required to display photos and/or detailed professional information on filmography pages at this time. If in the future, we create a memorial service to display photos for friends and loved ones who have passed away, we'll announce it prominently on the site. 

Thank you for understanding.

Joel

What is the reason it's not currently a feature? IMDb used to have it in the past for years, which suggests the technical aspect of it should be relatively easy to fix.

So, Joel, please answer, every other actor who appeared in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" who displays a profile picture in the IMDb credits (i.e. Irving Pichel, Mickey Simpson) has SOMEONE *actively* paying a monthly fee for IMBD Pro to maintain their photo?! These actors from 60 years ago?
I would have no problem honoring my Godfather by spending say $500 one time fee to let the world know how important Jack was to the John Ford Company and me. Paying a monthly fee until I die and then his profile picture is then removed does not make sense.
IMBD claims to be open to change. Please!

Thank you, Marco! B. Barrett is much more succinct than I on this issue.
