Within the opening credits mentioned actors ALWAYS refer to the version stated within the text field! If I was able to use the Italian opening credits I first took over this information prior to the international one. A German version I only used for German co-productions or if it was the only available!
ALMOST ALL Role indications originally were generated by myself unless not stated within the text field e.g. D, stated ANICA. Meanwhile several persons (see overview below) are working on this database and I totally trust them. Of course all of them could make mistakes- just like me!
We particular pay attention to stuntmen, actors who are not mentioned and Generici (small-part-actors we completly researched ourselves- an ongoing process). In first instance we use the forum of Emiliano: Emilianos forum of small-part-actor identification (Generici) and picture collections
If a single person is unknown -e.g. because of picture quality or this person only acts/ed in the background- this will be mentioned. (unsure, possibly, maybe)!
Crew members and directors: as already mentioned I either use the (unconfirmed) information from several dictionaries OR from the original opening credits. In some cases -not a few- those information were stated for tax (or trade union) reasons but with regards to reality the movie was staged, cutted etc. by another unit. If this information reached me somehow it will be found within the text and the 2nd regisseur will be named!
The information on the movies I gained not from the original opening credits I only used if I didn't own (or soon would own) the movie - except for unforeseeable reasons.
After entering data on my own for 2 1/2 years slightly supported by Michael Lippitsch, Johan Melle and of course both of my administrators Dennis & Eric Heyse, whom I once again would like to mention and give thanks to. Without them this database would not exist: Thank you for always and quickly solving errors on this database which usually accur due to the ongoing groth of datavolumes!
Meanwhile we count several additional helpers among us whom I would also like to thank. Without them this database would not contain as many information as we now can share with you. Especially the amount of pictures of actors and roles increases on a massive scale!
