The only thing that looks a little odd now is that the "Actors" are divided up but the "Actresses" are not, like if you're having a section for "Foreign actors" then surely Thea Fleming and Janine Hendy should be under a heading of "Foreign actresses"

Actually, nearly 50% of the actresses are non-Italian. But I'm not sure that more sub-categories is the way to go. If there are too many, I think it can become more difficult to get an over-view...

Yes I agree, it could go on until each actor has their own sub-category! :unsure2:

The problem is that in the actors section there were people who had nothing to do with one another, actors, directors, famous characters and people who played a role once in their life. On the other hand, fragmenting, even if it makes cataloging more sensible, then makes research more difficult.

Maybe re-combine the "Foreign actors" and "other actors", since the being "foreign" was irrelevant for the actors listed there, as they were all based in Italy at the time and working pretty much exclusively in Italian films

Well, I think that in the cases of Giovanni Bosich and Paolo Sereno, they both have only one credited role and it was assumed they are generici and that more roles will be found, but that hasn't happened (at least not yet), and since there were also a few crew members who occasionally took on acting roles, we did indeed end up with a mixed category of actors. Not sure where everyone should be placed. Maybe those who only have a single role could be collected in a topic of "potential generici" until more roles are found. I don't know...

I believe this makes sense. I'm doing.

Well, the only thing that remains is whether to keep the "Milanesi" section. :sweat3:

I like it! :) :thumbup:

The only thing I'm unsure about is the occasional actors section. Is it intended for crew members who took acting roles? Because I don't think Bosich or Sereno were crew members.
