Should remastered films have their own listing?

I'm looking at two film entries: Boss of Rawhide (1943) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036664/reference/ and

Boss of Rawhide (1943) (Remastered) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt18570174/reference/

These are the same film...should the remastered version have it's own entry? The actors now have two credits for the same film! (See Guy Wilkerson for example.) He did not act in two "Boss of the Rawhide" movies in 1934!

How do I fix this?

(I personally believe this is coming from a company that is remastering films and want's to use IMDb as a platform to draw attention to their company! This is not the only film by this company that is listed like this.)

Same problem with these recent title additions was also raised here: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/fake-movies/624bbdcc385d98640add6098

And I think staff shouldn't merge any of these new title pages to the original pages as that would transfer some bad data to original pages like made-up budgets, bad titles, bad country of origins, bad release dates and ineligible credits like "remaster editor". They should just be deleted. I assume all were created by same user.
