Hi Michael,

Unfortunately at present there is no way for us to return a negative search result e.g. no death date in the advanced search options. http://www.imdb.com/search/

However if you see http://www.imdb.com/interfaces/ you can apply for access to the IMDb datasets where you should be able to create a custom report for this.

Sorry that I can't be of more assistance at this time.

Regards,
Will
