I have tried to re-edit several times and never heard from IMDb.  I am Christopher Frederick (II) and my credit as Otto in Raiders of the Lost Ark has been given to another actor, Christopher Frederick (I).  Can this not be corrected?  How can I achieve this?

Hi there,

Thank you for your message.

Please submit a correction to change the credit to your page instead, rather than a deletion.

This correction has been refused so the wrong actor has the credit.  Can I appeal this?  I have come up against a blank wall.

I am credited with the video game but not the film.  This makes absolutely no sense.

I have already done this a few times and it has been turned down.  The wrong actor, with my name, still has my credit incorrectly but I have the video game credit.  This makes no sense.  I wish someone could take the trouble to look into this.

This took place nearly 40 years ago.  Of course no call sheets or pay stubbs.  Nothing to do with woe is me.  Rude and ridiculous response from imdb after all the history here in which I have tried to be helpful.  IMDB is bizarre in giving me the video game credit and some New York actor the film credit.  We have the same name: Christopher Frederick.  Strange coincidence?

I may send you the screen grab.  It was filmed at Pinewood and they took small parts like mine from London not New York.


Imdb is in control here and can do what it pleases but it shouldn’t be rude or worse.

I will now leave this with you but surely you can ask the other wrongly credited actor if he took part in this film.

Please see w/site page: https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Otto
and quote from this page:
Regarding the identity of the character of Otto in the film, Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo writes:

"We found a call sheet with Christopher Frederick for one day only -- a day of shooting inside Marion's tent. Because all the other characters in the call sheet are identified, we figure he is either the Arab servant that sets up Belloq's dinner, or the German soldier that pushes Marion into the tent, but there's currently no way to identify him beyond that."

The website Aveleyman.com however reveals Christopher Frederick's appearance, in an episode of BBC Plays, Caught on a Train, as a German guard. Although the character of Otto is not clearly seen in the tent scene, Frederick's facial shape most closely resembles the German soldier rather than the Arab servant.[3]

these Hellraiser/Hell on Earth credits do not belong to me and probably belong to the other Christopher Frederick
