Getting credit for a movie Orestes filmed in 1969 and was not a part of it

I would like to have my name David Elan Peterson removed from a film titled Orestes, that was filmed in Greece in 1969. You have me as an actor playing the part of Pyladus. Again, I was not in this film and would deeply appreciate having my name removed from the credits! Thank you for your attention regarding this matter!

David: On the page for David Elan Peterson at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3578617/, there is no biographical information -- no date of birth, no identification of a spouse, no biographical trivia. There are no photos on the page. There are no credits at all there except for the role of Pyladus in Orestis (1969). Nothing on the page is connected to you other than the name.

One possibility is that the page pertains to a different person also named David Elan Peterson. If you have any credits that should be listed in IMDb, and you also use the name David Elan Peterson for your film work, you should submit them under the name Peterson, David Elan (II) so that they will be placed on a different page from the person who was in Orestis.

Alternatively, maybe the Orestis credit is incorrect altogether. If you can find out who played the role of Pyladus in the 1969 film, and it wasn't anyone named David Elan Peterson, the credit can be corrected. You would probably want to provide a screen shot of the film's credits to prove that.

I don't know what the exact situation is here, but let's not be quick to deprive someone else of his credit just because he has the same name as you.

I am not certain what the situation is here, either. I find that on two sites related to "David Elan Peterson" that there is mention of his starring in a film. On the FaceBook site it clearly mentions he starred in a film which was shot on location in Greece.

This is the only David Elan Peterson that I found online so at least someone by that name starred in a film which was shot in Greece. Curious.

I appreciate you getting back to me regarding this credit for Orestes. That was put up by me as a spoof five years ago from my PC computer under and SBCGOLBAL.NET ACCOUNT. So for all intent an purpose I was the impetus for this happening. Having said that, there is no other David Elan Peterson for this part other then me. The movie was never even released. I'm not sure what else to say to you to prove that I in essence am the David Elan Peterson alluded to in this credit, but as I said it was all fabricated.
Again, regardless of there being no other information attached to this credit other then my name, people goggle my name and I come up as credited for this film that was shot back in 1969. I really would appreciate my name being removed from this film credit. Again thank you very much for you attention to this matter.

David: When you say that "The movie was never even released", that implies to me that the movie was in fact filmed. Is that correct?

David: No, I don't think I received your last response. But I don't work for IMDb, nor does LuvsToResearch, the other person who has posted in this thread. And the IMDb staff don't answer questions over the phone.

If you need to provide private information to IMDb, you can contact them via the Help Desk at http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/contact_form.
