Strange little thing Otto cued me to on the IMDB actors.

In this thread **Otto ** noticed Fred Astair is the first person entered in the IMDB names table. Here are the first 25. It is an interesting list with a few surprises. Belushi, Delerue & Goldsmith seem a little out of place with the other 22 legends. This invites conjecture and a small game. The game is below.

Find the name that matches your SDMB username number.

I am user 53243 which matches the unknown: Jim Barbarino.
Ed Zotti matches to Ingrid Bergman
**Who is your match? **

Enjoy,
Jim

I didn’t get anyone good. :confused:

where do you get your number?

Olivia Hughes

Never heard of her.

Funny that the first two responses have the same last name though.

Hmm I think I did that wrong. I did the post # instead of member #. http://imdb.com/name/nm0049038/ Eh, like that’s any better.

Actually your user # is 546. That is Matthew Modine, http://imdb.com/name/nm0000546/

Pretty good.

percussion, I clikc on your username and choose View Public Profile and find in the address bar you are userid=16111. When I unch that into the IMDB link I generate http://imdb.com/name/nm0016111/ You get someone boring like mine, Raja Ahmad Alauddin.

Jim

I got John W. Adams. Who the heck is he?

By Og that stunk, too many typos. Now corrected.

I get Helge Andersson, who by a strange coinkidink is Swedish like me.

My number is the same as Martine Badgley who made one film, Dancing on the Moon.

Mine’s pretty obscure too.

I got Adrien Brody. Do I get to kiss Halle Berry?

Optionally you could find your movie: Mine is a forgettable Three Stooges film: http://imdb.com/title/tt0053243/ or Sappy Bullfighters (1959)
It is notable only for being their final short.

Any wags on how they assigned actors to there numbers? It obviously was not a completely random entry.

Gadarene, nice one!

Bor-ring! Ram Avron. One entry. Never heard of him.

Ah! But my movie is…Boniface somnambule? Son of a bitch.

Oh, I didn’t know we could do movies. Here’s mine: Muß man sich gleich scheiden lassen?

Hm. I got Martina Alberti, who appears to have been a porn actress in one movie.

My film is a lost German film from 1919 called The Blue Boy or *Emerald in Death. My actor is Senor Acuaviva, who starred in only one film in 1929.

Damn you Daniel Alegi!

My movie kicks all kinds of ass. [url=http://imdb.com/title/tt0000546/[Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend. Sweet ass.
