Maxine Brown (VI)  nm6397937

This person is an American Country singer, a member of 'The Browns' and 'The Three Bells'.

I think some of the entries on her IMDB page belong to another ‘Maxine Brown’, a soul singer, hereafter referred as ‘MB – new’.

 The following definitely belong to MB – new.

Soundtrack: Movie (2 credits)
Kicking and Screaming (performer: "All in My Mind") / (writer: "All in My Mind") 
Imaginary Crimes (performer: "All In My Mind") / (writer: "All In My Mind") 
Self: TV (12 credits)
 2013 Soul Power! (TV Series documentary) 
- Soul Power! The Renaissance Years (2013) ... Herself, vocalist

As Maxine Brown (VI) only has credits with the other members of her family, either as ‘The Browns” or “The Three Bells”, I believe that the items where only a ‘Maxine Brown’ is credited, and neither Jim Ed nor Bonnie Brown are, actually belong to ‘MB – new’.

These credits are -

The Peter Martin Show (TV Series) 
- Tom Paxton, Maxine Brown, Frank D'Rone, The Vogues, 1910 Fruit Gum Company (1968) ... Herself
- Margaret Whiting, Earl Wilson Jr., Maxine Brown, Every Mother's Son (1968) ... Herself
The Clay Cole Show (TV Series) 
- Episode #8.2 (1967) ... Herself
- Episode #7.30 (1967) ... Herself
- Episode #7.5 (1966) ... Herself 
Where the Action Is (TV Series) 
- Episode #2.187 (1966) ... Herself
- Episode #2.155 (1966) ... Herself
The Lloyd Thaxton Show (TV Series) 
- Episode #4.166 (1966) ... Herself
- Episode #3.243 (1965) ... Herself

One credit could be problematic

The Bob Braun Show (TV Series) 
- Episode dated 23 August 1968 (1968) ... Herself - Vocalist

Jim Ed Brown appears on this show as a solo performer, without his sisters, three times  - 1979, 1980 and 1981. As this is so long after appearance of ‘Maxine Brown’, I believe Jim Ed was appearing after the Browns broke up and that the credit belongs to MB – new.


I would like to split Maxine Brown (VI) into two entries, one for the country singer and one for the soul singer.

Should I proceed?

Hi Graham,

I'd only move the data that you're confident belongs to the new page. If you are unsure of any changes it's probably best to leave it where it is until another contributor can confirm that is indeed incorrect or see if someone responds to this thread.

Thanks, Will.

When I have tried to split this entry, I have come across a difficulty.

The only option is to split off the 'Actress' credits section. However, there are no 'Actress' credits, only ones for 'Self' and 'Soundtrack'.

How do I proceed?
