I'm recently watched Battle of the Bulge (yes very inaccurate but I like it) and wanted to know who played Lt. Schumacher, which was the german mp spy, in part because I knew I recognized him. It was Ty Hardin who is not in the imdb credits which say "verified as complete". I'm looking at the opening credits and Ty's name is there.
So I'm assuming if I try and add it it will be denied. Unfort it's recorded on a channel that I can't download and get an image of the credits.
Suggestions.

Take a cell phone picture of the credits.
I do it all the time. But you will have to take a sequential set of photos that shows all the other verified actors that are also in the title for a reference point. Like this example

Does it matter if it doesn't have the name assoc with the characters? the end credits are cut and then the channel does that thing where they put the credits into a small box.

I was already looking for my dig camera to take the pic in case that was the suggestion.
Incidentally wikipedia is how I found out who the actor's name was. It has it. Score one for wikipedia.
and fandago has it too

Ty Hardin used to be listed, and the order numbers skip #6, so it shouldn't be too hard to get the credit back in. It's harder to answer why it went missing.

before I post my pics, he's even tagged in an image under the movie. Crazy.

Went ahead and submitted.  Bet it gets declined.

I feel bad for the other actors that have their credits taken away. Unfortunately sundance cut the end credits so I don't have all the characters matched with the actors' names or I'd try more.  I just knew I recognized the guy and wanted to know who he was.

Are you sure there are character names in the end credits? Not all older films have this.

Hi all,

Thanks for providing all this information, you lot rock! 

I've re-added the credit to the title now and will investigate why it went missing in the first place.

Cheers all,

Joel
