I tried submitting movie connections regarding the films titled The Maltese Falcon to somewhere, but they don't seem to be doing so for some reason, not sure why those films can't be Movie Connected from what I can see.

Hi CuriousUser,

I ran into the same trouble lately. It depends what kind of relationship you want to establish. Some (equivalent to one-to-one) can be done through the existing Edit procedure, the other ones (involving the creation of a group such as remakes) have to be channeled through the Contact form.

Could you share which movies you want to link and the type of relationship you want to invoke?

These are the films I can't seem to submit as Movie Connections: The Maltese Falcon (1931), The Maltese Falcon: One Magnificent Bird (2006) (V), and The Maltese Falcon (1941).

To which title(s) are you trying to connect them and using which relationship from https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/movie-connections/GNUNL9W2FTZDGF4Y

The Maltese Falcon (1941) and The Maltese Falcon (1931) are already connected as "Versions Of" in the connection listings.

Are you trying to add those two movies to Maltese Falcon: One Magnificent Bird (2006) (V)?

If so, as Col says, what connection are you trying to add? Also, can you take a screenshot of the error that you are getting?

I just did a test and I'm able to add a "references" connection with no errors but without watching One Magnificent Bird, I'm unsure of the true relationship.
