You noted in your warning that you think this IP ( might be a bot. It's the IP for my school, and since we have a bunch of immature middle schoolers, but a bunch of serious students too, the contributions are really mixed. Nothing to do with 'hiding' edits. I'm not defending the vandalism, just thought I'd let you know it's not a bot. KyuubiSeal (talk) 18:07, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Copyvio nonsense

You recently re-added a copyvio tag to the newly created Groutite article. Why? Did you even look at the "duplication detector report"? It returned zero matches. Does the bot need blocking? Or is this an isolated glitch? Please explain on the article talk. Vsmith (talk) 01:33, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

The answer to your question is here Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#possible hijacking of a retired.2Fvanished user. All of the edits by this editor are questionable so I simply wanted other eyes on their work. If the removal is proper then please feel free to get rid of the tag again (if you already have then I'll offer my thanks.) Cheers. MarnetteD | Talk 01:38, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Long overdue. Doc talk 09:59, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

When are films British, and when are they Welsh, Scottish, English or Northern Irish?

Since another dispute has arisen over the country of origin of Hedd Wyn (film), I think it's high time we agreed on a consistent policy on what counts as a British film, and what counts as a Welsh, Scottish, English, or Northern Irish film. As someone who contributed the last time this came up, would you care to comment? Suggestions on where the broader discussion should happen are especially welcome. garik (talk) 03:43, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. You will want to post to the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Film page. I can tell you that this has come up several times over the years and the discussions have always ended in a kind of stalemate with no one definition or policy being decided upon. Please don't let that deter you though. I don't know whether I am up to commenting on the talk page for the film at the moment. Life off wiki is very stressful at the moment and is taking up most of my energies and the editor you are interacting with requires some stamina to deal with. I offer many apologies for not being of more help to you but there are lots of conscientious editors at the film project who may be able to give you some direction.

No prob. And thanks for the thoughts regarding the tickets. Given my bronchitis (which recently flared up a bit, probably triggered by the cold my mom gave me), I'm not sure going to a city with air as rarified as Denver would be the best thing right now, even though I'd love to visit it.

January 2012

Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. M D Potter. Any comments? 17:08, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome for this message :) M D Potter. Any comments? 17:13, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

I did see the thanks in the edit summary, and I just wanted to also come thank you for the kick in the pants to go create the stub.

I've notice this as well, but there are no extant blocks that I can see, and none of the edits are outright dispruptive...yet.

Elisabeth Moss again

Please can you put a stop to the continual actor-or-actress nonsense in Elisabeth Moss and any other similar articles? I pointed out some time ago that if you want an unconventional description to appear in the article it must be supported by a reliable reference. Just referring to something on your talk page or in an edit summary is not good enough, you need to provide an inline reference to a reliable source which will stop the continual edits and reversions. The reference needs a quote from the person herself or something similarly specific. Last time I looked I think I remember having found a recent interview referring to her as an "actress", so you need a quote from her saying how she self-identifies. If you can't provide a reliable source, I will look round for one myself which will at least ensures stability of the article even if it not what you would prefer. --Mirokado (talk) 01:31, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

It isn't nonsense as can be seen here Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Gender-neutral_language and here [1] and here [2] among numerous other places. Also she calls herself an actor on the DVD commentary for Mad Men. Your demand for a ref applies both ways. Please provide a reference that she prefers the paternalistic gender specific term. MarnetteD | Talk 03:24, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
As to the conventionality one only has to watch the Screen Actor Guild Awards to see where that is going. You won't find the words poetess, authoress or commedienne or even WPC anymore yet they were all used within my lifetime. MarnetteD | Talk 03:41, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Well I've now requested a reliable source on the article page and explained why it is necessary. The "nonsense" I was referring to is the slow edit wars on these articles resulting from the unsourced content, not the content itself. I'm sort-of happy to believe you myself, which is why I have refrained from editing that word again, but the community as a whole clearly needs the source for article stability. --Mirokado (talk) 04:09, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply and my apologies for misinterpreting your words. I have found it interesting that everyone interviewed on the Grham Norton Show is referred to as an actor. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. MarnetteD | Talk 04:13, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't know whether you will have watched tonight's Academy Awards telecast but the "In memorium" section used the word actor for both the men and women as can be seen here [3], including Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away last year. For me that pretty much seals it use as a conventional description. This comes on top of at least three years of all of the documentaries on "The Biography Channel" and "tru TV" as well as feature length documentaries like The Celluloid Closet doing the same thing. I am not sure how many more sources are needed. Let me state that I understand your explanation on the talk page but I would like to point out that we have the same kind of back and forth editing with BC/AD and BCE/CE on various articles and sourcing is not always required to explain why they are used. Reverting of edits happens there and will continue to happen elsewhere. I am 90% certain that it is the 2nd season DVDs where Ms Moss self identifies as an actor but life off wiki is so busy that I don't know when I will be able to replay those to find the specific episode. Cheers and have a good week. MarnetteD | Talk 04:24, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

─────────────── Thanks for those comments. Unfortunately the Oscar awards are overnight for me. I will trust you, while hoping that you will provide references when you do have them to hand. I will also look, as a background activity. Please continue to be patient as you have been recently if you do have to revert from time to time, and I suggest you least create a talk page section explaining the content on affected pages. Saying "see talk" is probably better than "see previous edit summary" and someone else may be able to contribute a suitable reference. I hope to add a comment to the article talk section "soon" but I'm a bit busy at present. --Mirokado (talk) 00:07, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again, I just wanted to ask you which pic I should use for an article. Both are free images licensed as cc-by-sa.

The first one has them more direct at the camera but the colors are pretty saturated. The second one has them at a bit of an odd angle but the colors are clearer.--CyberGhostface (talk) 04:39, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

It's for the article Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. I've already uploaded the first one for the article. I just uploaded the second one at File:Julien_Maury_and_Alexandre_Bustillo_2.png; I might reedit it again for framing purposes but the basic gist will be the same, cropping it so the two take up most of the picture.

Confessions of a Cheat

Hello - and thanks for your message. Guitry certainly packed a lot of ideas into a short and brisk film. And it's fun to try to track down the numerous borrowings that Welles included in Citizen Kane after his crash-course in film technique (not to mention things like the out-takes from King Kong). One can see why Guitry's multi-talented ego might have appealed to Welles! Lampernist (talk) 14:57, 14 March 2012 (UTC)


Yes, I'm planning to see it. I saw it in the early 1980s at San Francisco's Castro theatre. This was with a dubbed music track after the tour with the live orchestra had finished. Also this print "letterboxed" the final hour of the film, so the middle-screen was now smaller than it had been during the first 3- hours of the film. It was Carmine Coppola's score (father of Francis Coppola- though I suspect you know that). The new showing has an entirely new score. (I read somewhere Francis Coppola tried to stop the new score on grounds of music rights and lost!). As my first round of viewing was without orchestra I only paid $7.50 to see it. Lowest tix for this are $40+, but it will be with the proper three screens, so pic will actually expand in final hour rather than shrink.

Late last year, I saw the shorter version of "Fellowship of the Ring" with a live orchestra (they got a special print with the music-track removed) and in summer 2010, the San Francisco Symphony showed "Psycho" under the same circumstances. There was just a bit too much of the light on the orchestra's scores bleeding onto the screen, but on the whole a hoot. The SF Symphony almost gave me a huge discount as the ticket master thought I might be the British composer of the same name who taught music at Stanford for about 3 years in the mid-2000s and had an arrangement for discounts with the symphony. He had already returned to England when the confusion occurred. I decided to be honest.--WickerGuy (talk) 20:25, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

The only other movie I saw with a dinner break was a Cleveland, OH showing of the 6-hour version of Bertolucci's "1900" (widely released in America in the 4-hour version). Part I went from 3-6 PM and part II was from 7:30-10:30. The theatre did not serve dinner- we were on our own re local cuisine, but many theatre patrons went to the same restaurants and chatted. Among many interesting elements of the movie is the mixed Italian & American cast. Donald Sutherland, Burt Lancaster (in one of his best roles) and Robert DeNiro are all in it along with many leading Italian actors. The 3+ hour Fellowship had a long intermission, but no dinner break.
I wasn't aware there had never been a DVD release. Why not just have two soundtracks, one with the CCop score and one with CDav?? They did that with "Alien" (although the track with the rejected soundtrack lacks any dialogue or sound effects- the alternate track is ONLY the unused music), and one of the (three) alternate tracks on Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast" (Criterion edition) is Phillip Glass' opera which is supposed to be performed live while the Cocteau movie projects in the background.
The showing of Napoleon here is at the Paramount Theatre which is normally for live events and doesn't generally function as a movie theatre. I've seen two concerts of Celtic music, and one of Gospel there. One of the former was "Celtic Woman".--WickerGuy (talk) 20:50, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
I in fact saw the 6-hour abridgment (reduced from eight) of Nickolas Nickleby in one day in 2006(??) with a dinner break. Part I (if I recall) ran from 2 to 5 and Part II ran from 7(??) to 10. It was staged by the California Shakespeare Festival which is in a medium-sized outdoor amphitheatre nestled in some beautiful hills. Over two months they ran several alternating evenings of Parts I and II but only on the closing weekend did they do both in the same day. I also purchased the script of the longer version and even read it.
The highlight for me is the closing of Part I (out of 2 in this case) play-within-a-play of good actors portraying really bad actors acting out the closing scenes of a happy-ending rewrite of Romeo and Juliet. This section runs between 20 to 30 minutes, and is gut-busting hilarious!!

(Cal Shakes' artistic director since 2001 has been Jonathan Moscone, the son of former SF mayor George Moscone who was assassinated at the same time as Harvey Milk. I've had the pleasure of meeting JM- he's a charming guy.)--WickerGuy (talk) 21:48, 14 March 2012 (UTC) --WickerGuy (talk) 21:48, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

The Five Doctors - italic title

I believe that if there are two or more {{italictitle}} in a page, even when one's in a template (such as an infobox), they might conflict with unexpected results. In The Five Doctors we have {{Infobox Doctor Who episode}} which itself uses {{Infobox}}. I think that what's happening is that in the absence of instructions to the contrary, {{Infobox}} forces the page title to be non-italic. It has a parameter |italic title= which isn't being set by {{Infobox Doctor Who episode}}. --Redrose64 (talk) 01:09, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh, boy. I'm just getting into this one, and he hops all over the Roadrunner network: but every single one of them is in Hawaii. This character is obsessed with someone named "Ross M. Brown", and inserts them in a few choice articles, namely Timothy Leary, The Doors, Picts, and a handful of others. But as I dig into each article, I find older and older IPs, and he just keeps changing them. Here are some that I've found so far:

There are more, and so far I'm in early December of last year. What possesses these people? Anyway, if you see the name "Ross M. Brown" anywhere on WP, it's probably this strange vandal that added it. Cheers :> Doc talk 04:59, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Note - I haven't found all of the IPs yet, but they've been at it since at least October 16, 2011 with a named account they abandoned for IPs: Rossmbrown (talk · contribs). Funny coincidence, no? So far I've got 14 IPs, the named account, and 17 articles hit. I searched article space for "Ross M. Brown" and zapped it: everywhere it was, it was this clown that added it.

I of course remember Ian Holm as Napoleon in Time Bandits with enormous fondness. BUt apparently he had played him on TV before that.--WickerGuy (talk) 15:50, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

More on Nappy

2nite at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley (roughly 4 to 5 miles from where Nappy is showing in Oakland), restorer Kevin Brownlow is giving a talk about the restoral process. This review in Monday's SF Chronicle will make you green with envy!!

My other fave Napoleon comedy remains Woody Allen's Love and Death (just as N is mainly in the first half-hour of Bandits, he's mainly in the final half-hour of L&D. Might make a good double-bill with Bandits first.)--WickerGuy (talk) 16:49, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm fairly aware of film composers but hadn't tracked CD. And I saw World at War when it was out. I remmber Olivier's narration, but hadn't noted the music. (My fave film composers are Bernard Herrmann, and John Barry.) I've seen several movies with Tolkan but hadn't noted the continuity since you mentioned it.--WickerGuy (talk) 17:48, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
I managed to catch the cartoon during the dinner break (which is now) for Napoleon as there is a FedEx/Kinko's 6 blocks away. Two 20-minute intermissions and an 1 hr 55 minute dinner break. I'll send you a full report by e-mail, but BTW had to miss Brownlow's Friday talk, and learned some new things about the scoring conflict.--WickerGuy (talk) 00:19, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

E-mail Redux


Seeing movies with a full orchestra is almost getting to be an annual tradition with me 2010- SF Symphony plays score to Pycho with special print with music removed 2011- Same with Fellowship of the Ring (shorter version which is very poorly edited IMO) 2012-Napoleon

There is also a homage to the chase scene in Bullitt in the fifth and final Dirty Harry movie entitled The Dead Pool which is hilarious!! One of the two cars (the chasee) is a tiny remote control mechanical car with a bomb in it. Largely the same SF locations and turns!! Sf can't really expand much. It's surrounded on three sides by water and to the south by Daly City, Brisbane and San Bruno Mountain!! The biggest change is when the 2-story freeway on Embarcadero was damaged in the '89 earthquake it was thankfully torn down. It was a slight eyesore in an otherwise beautiful city. If you see Vertigo, the main thing you notice is the absence of the Transamerica Pyramid (check out the pic), while the rest of SF looks fairly similar.

When I saw Vertigo in a downtown SF theatre in 1980, Jimmy Stewart's car/cab turns a corner where construction is going on, and construction was also going on that same corner in 1980. Someone in the audience yelled out "They've been working on that a long time" and folks laughed. The other laugh line was

SCOTTIE Midge, who do you know that's an authority an San Francisco history?

MIDGE Now, that's the kind of greeting a girl likes. None of this "hello you look wonderful" stuff. Just a good straight "who do you know" --

SCOTTIE (breaking in) Well, who? Come on, you know everybody.

Harris was just getting started but had already produced two or three hit Broadway shows when Napoleon was released, so it's possible. But I think Olivier was going for the mannerisms and speech inflections of Harris, not his appearance. Olivier looks like an extra-sinister/macabre version of R3, but doesn't really look like Jed Harris whom you can see here [4] and 6 pics here [5]. John Barrymore's theatre director character in Twentieth Century is more directly based on Harris. Several pics here after you scroll down 1 to 2 pages.--WickerGuy (talk) 02:18, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
My theatre indulgence of last year, 2011, was seeing Kevin Spacey (directed by Sam Mendes) as R3- it was in Sf for only 10 days. Ian McKellan remains my favorite of the R3s. I have never seen Neil Simon's The Goodbye Girl in which the lead character is an actor playing R3 and whose director wants him to be played as gay (against the actor's better judgment). I've seen R3 live a few times. The fellow who played R3 at Carmel's PacRep in 2004 looked like Charles Laughton in Hunchback of Notre Dame. There's a local low-budget company here called "Woman's Will" Women's Will which does Shakespeare and other stuff with an all-female cast (there are similar companies in New York, LA, and Chicago). They were a tad better under their previous artistic director (till 2008), who pushed the gender-bender envelope a bit more. Their 2005 R3 (play) had a very bulldyke R3 (character) as played by local stage star Emily Jordan who has much fuller and feminine hair in this shot [6] than as R3 in which her hair was in short spikes more resembling this shot of DiCaprio [7], but you can see her capacity for tiger-like ferocity in this shot of her from Cymbeline [8] I'm usually fine with ethnic-blind casting, but in an earlier CalShakes production I somehow found the obvious Jewishness of their R3 slightly distracting. Of course, my first exposure to the play was Olivier's film.--WickerGuy (talk) 02:56, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
Sadly, I haven't watched Black Adder, although I adored Rowan Atkinson as Doctor Who in Curse of the Fatal Death. Olivier not only re-arranged R3, but kept some of the alterations from Codley Cibber's version which was far more widely performed in the 19th century than WS's original. I think "Richard's himself again" is the most famous line of Shakespeare that Shakespeare didn't write!!! I once followed Olivier's Lady Anne scene with text in hand, and it's a clever reworking. He has the corpse be her husband rather than her father. The killer of the Princes in the Tower is Patrick Troughton aka the Second Doctor!! Troughton is also the Player King in Olivier's Hamlet with beard and no dialogue. Christopher Lee is an extra as a soldier and Peter Cushing is Osric!! It's literally the first movie Lee and Cushing did together.
This reminds me of another cool night in the theatre. Every summer Shakespeare Santa Cruz [9] has a "fringe" show which is entirely directed by undergraduate interns. In 2005, they did Nathan Tate's 17th century "happy ending" of King Lear and staged it entirely as high slapstick with a couple of modern rock and roll songs. The regular company was doing the real lear that same season. It was an intensely hilarious night in the theatre. (Usually the fringe show is something written as a comedy including 2007's "Mock Tempest"- a parody fo the Tempest also from the 17th century. My Kinko's card is just about to run out of time.--WickerGuy (talk) 23:00, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your good advice, and thank you very much for your charming message this evening.

With kind regards, Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 22:11, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Postscript: Just to let you know, Wrath X is still busy editing The Godfather – after a brief respite – and is catching you up fast. You have 69 recorded and he has 170 (not counting 51 on The Godfather II) but he/she is leaving Edit Summaries every time. Cheers! Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 18:00, 5 April 2012 (UTC)


I was not aware of that discussion, so I thank you for the link. The AFI is certainly notable, and I think it follow that their film lists are notable. When I have seen them removed from film articles, I have reverted, and gave my reasons in my edit summary. An objecting editor would have to go a long way to convince me the lists, even of nominations, are not notable. The number of films so honoured is very small. Cheers to you! ---RepublicanJacobiteTheFortyFive 23:32, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Death's Door

If you have a chance watch this on youtube and see if my plot summary is decent.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:14, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Also started The Town of No Return. Strange episode, you can view on youtube. I think I've got the plot right but you may wish to correct. Will be working on more this week. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:09, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm finding snippets in google books! Feel free to add what you have!♦ Dr. Blofeld

Do you have the full box set of all 6 series? What would be very helpful is if you could view the episodes we have articles for of series 1 and 2 and write full plots for them. I can only access Series 3-6 on youtube.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:35, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Mmm the list is up for AFD.♦ Dr. Blofeld 21:57, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

The Friends of Eddie Coyle

Would you mind taking a look at the recent edits on this article and then giving your opinion at the discussion I started on Film Project talk page? As I said there, I have withdrawn from the dispute to keep it from spiralling out of control, but another editor really needs to take a look. I would appreciate it. Thanks. ---RepublicanJacobiteTheFortyFive 19:55, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Marnette. Regarding your edit, where in WP:NOTABLE does it indicate children should not be mentioned in the Infobox, even without being named? Nightscream (talk) 01:00, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

It really doesn't look like much of a consensus to me; Why is that field in the Infobox, then? Nightscream (talk) 04:55, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
I perceived no curtness, so no worries. :-) Nightscream (talk) 06:36, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
