My name is RoseAnna Schick. I am a unit publicist. I have a credit on the TV movie Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story. However, you have listed this credit on the movie's page as RoseAnne Schick (my name is misspelled - it should be RoseAnna with an "a" at the end, not an "e" - and therefore not being attributed to me). Can you please correct this?

This is my profile:

This is the movie I am talking about:

Hi RoseAnna -

Please note that we list credits as they appear on-screen, so if your name was spelled incorrectly as "RoseAnne Schick" in the on-screen credits for "Mr Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story", we'll need to retain that information.

Please see our FAQ on this topic here: http://imdb.com/help/show_leaf?namewrong
for more information about how/if you should submit a correction.

The best proof for the credit would be a screen cap of the on screen credits. If you were credited on screen correctly, but it was typed in wrong when someone submitted it here, you could click the yellow "edit page" button on the page for the film, then correct it to your page and send proof on the verification form http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_ver... . If you don't have a copy of the film to use, amazon has it available to rent ($3.99) or buy and you could get the screen grab and submit it.

If it was, in fact, misspelled in the on screen credits, you should click "edit page" on the page for RoseAnne Schick, who does not exist and "merge" the pages into one by correcting the RoseAnne name to the way your name is spelled correctly on your page. You'll have to acknowledge that the credit will appear with the word "as" since that is how the credit appeared. So, that would get the credit moved to your page, but indicate that the name was spelled differently on screen.

Instructions for a "merge" if this is the case, are on this page http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domai...
