An actor credited in the film Lydia (1941) is, in fact, someone else. The credit has "Billy Ray (VI)" as "Johnny". This character was in fact played by William Roy (aka Billy Roy), as credited in his entry in the Academy Players Directories (No.25 10/1941 p.385; No.26 12/1941 p.400; and No.28 5/1941 p.394) as well as the AFI online catalog ( This incorrect reference is the only entry for this "Billy Ray (VI)" (born 1930, Oklahoma); however there is another "Billy Ray (V)" in IMDb (born 1926) with a list of apparently correct credits (which does not include Lydia [1941]). I have tried to fix this -- I get a message that this "feature" (i.e., changing an actor name) is "locked". Thanks for any help you can offer.
