Remove incorrect IMDB entry for Ray Harryhausen

I am a long time fan of the late Ray Harryhausen. Contrary to the entry in the Visual Effects section, Ray Harryhausen did not make any contribution or have any involvement with Visual Effects for the film 'The Strange World of Planet X'. I have confirmed this with the Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation.

I have recently attempted to have the entry deleted as it is incorrect but have had my requests turned down with the standard 'Your contribution has been declined.We have been unable to verify your contribution.' In my latest attempt, I have even included an email address that will allow the IMDB staff to contact Connor Heaney the Collections Manager at the Foundation who has also been trying to get the entry corrected.

Could someone please explain exactly what proof is needed to have this incorrect entry removed ?

Kevin F. Stubbs,

Please include the 18-digit reference number of the submission so an IMDb representative can review the update and respond.

Hi Kevin, thanks for reaching out about this! I've taken a look and can confirm that the credit has been removed from the page. I see you mention a trivia item regarding this credit however no trivia item on this is live on the page.

Hi Elizabeth,

Many thanks for making the change. I will let Connor Heaney at the Foundation know that this mistake has now been corrected.

As for the trivia item, if you look up item #200720-100323-424000 you will find it currently appears as the last item in the Trivia section for the film. As the mistake has now been corrected, it should be removed.

Thanks again.
