After an IMDB Film page has been updated, can I go back and see previous versions of the page? i.e) Changes to cast & Crew

I need to gain proof that I was once listed on the IMDB page for a film. Does IMDB keep records of cast & crew changes on its movie listings?

Not as an official function of IMDb -- it's not like Wikipedia, where all the past versions of the page are saved in the page history. However, it's possible that you may be able to find an older version of the page at the Internet Archive: http://archive.org/web/web.php

IMDb does save all past versions of certain sections, including character biographies and Parents Guides and FAQs for films, which are available by clicking on "View full history" at the bottom of the section. But that wouldn't apply to your listing as a cast or crew member.

I have suggested we make edit histories visible:

But my idea wouldn't address this issue - it is more aimed at making problem editors more traceable.
