The submission below, which was to move three credits from one person to another, has been rejected.

Ref No.# 200521-082747-600000 

It involved the following people -

  • Sixto Rodriguez (nm0735519) – aka Sixto Rodriguez Noriega
  • Rodriguez (VIII)  (nm4582541) – aka Sixto Diaz Rodriguez

 Sixto Rodriguez Noriega has four credits 

  • one for a small acting part in ‘Fat City’ (tt0068575) where he plays a boxer. Given that he had a moderately successful career as a boxer (known as 'Kid Sixto'), it is not surprising that he appears in a film about boxers.
  • three (Writer, Composer, Self) in ‘Dead Men Don't Tour: Rodríguez in South Africa’ (tt9174346)

The film, ‘Dead Men Don't Tour: Rodríguez in South Africa’, can be seen in its entirety on YouTube –

Given that the film is about Sixto Diaz Rodriguez (professionally know as Rodriguez), an American musician, these three credits have been incorrectly given to Sixto Rodriguez Noriega.

Sixto Diaz Rodriguez’s credits (as Rodriguez (VIII)) include multiple soundtrack items, Composer and Music Department credits, as well as appearances as a musical guest on several shows.

There is a website that indicates that ‘Dead Men Don't Tour ...’ features Sixto Diaz Rodriguez

Is this information sufficient to allow the movement of the credits?

The Self credit has not appeared on Rodriguez's page.

It is still linked to Sixto Rodriguez.
