I have been trying to update the credits for "Riding Shotgun) from 1954 to include Holly Brooke without any success. Holly is my aunt and is turning 90 this year and I wanted to do this for her, have been trying for more than a year now. Here is a link to my latest attempt: http://www.imdb.com/updates/update?lo...

Am I doing something wrong?

Side note: Holly is Great-Aunt to Bret Harrison and a cousin (1st cousin once removed ie: her cousin's son) to Robert Sean Leonard, mother of Harland Cary Poe ("Someone to Watch Over Me")

Best thing you can do is submit the evidence of her name in the credit using this form:

http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_ver...

If you can do that, then it is pretty much guaranteed to be accepted.

Thanks

Holly is one of the many uncredited in Riding Shotgun. Is there any way I can submit photo evidence, like a side-by-side of a screen cap from the movie and a poster like the one attached. Would that satisfy the requirement?

OK thanks... I didn't see a way to attach a photo at that link. I'll try to figure something out.

You can use an image uploading service like tinypic.com for images you don't need to remove (a kind of fire-and-forget site that doesn't require user registration), or Photobucket for things you do want more control over (does require a registration) or a cloud-based service like Dropbox for more confidential information (as it will have the most limited public availability, as you can set it so people can only view it if they have the link and deleting it is as easy as deleting a file from your computer - which is what it is).

There's no need to resubmit a link to a photo if it's the same that you have attached here. A screengrab posted here will do just fine.

The issue with this particular submission is that the credit is being added to a name that has no other credited roles. Normally, we don't accept filmographies that consist exclusively of uncredited work (i.e. you need to have at least one credited entry attached to your name).

I'll forward this information to our editors for their consideration.

Thanks.

As Giancarlo says, uncredited roles aren't listed if no other credits exist...but there can be exceptions as stated in the guidelines:

You need to have at least one pre-existing credited entry in the database. We will not display filmographies consisting exclusively of uncredited work. We may make an exception in very rare/specific circumstances (e.g. on films released before 1990, episodes released before 2000 and/or for high-profile credits, such as an uncredited cameo appearance by a celebrity), but in most cases we won't list an uncredited credit unless you have a pre-existing credited filmography.


So, let's hope they grant this one...just because it would be the cool thing to do!

Good luck!

Hi Giancarlo,

Thank you so much. I'm honestly not certain if Holly appeared in other films. I know she was on the stage in some roles and I remember going to see her in "Portrait of a Queen" on Broadway with her son (my cousin Cary):

Holly Brooke Second Lady in Waiting to the Queen
James Cossins William Gladstone
Christopher Flavell Footman
John Milligan Footman
Harlan Cary Poe Footman.

Link to IBDB here:

There may have been other roles in films but they were probably also uncredited.

Attaching an image I was going to try to upload somewhere that includes the scree cap.

Thank you again... Keith

Keith,
Great job getting that done. Maybe you or a family member can add to her page a bio, trivia, "other works" that could include any stage work you know of, etc., to her new page. Also, perhaps family can post birthday greetings to her on the message board dedicated to her http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5096383/bo...

Glad you got this done for her. It'll be like no other gift she's had before!

Keith, let us know if you have any questions. We'll do our best to help.

One minor piece of advice. Don't add her birth date, unless your aunt really wants it known. Once a birth date is on IMDb, the IMDb staff will not remove it.
