There is a character named Gerry Bennett who is only listed as being in one movie, "Night of the Lepus" (1972). Yet this character is tagged in hundreds of photos, most notably 292 "Smallville" photos. Is there some way to get those tags removed?

Hi Elin,

Thank you for reporting this.

This looks like a case of vandalism. There are other reported cases in which character pages have been had their content changed inexplicably.

Gerry Bennett (Character)
from Night of the Lepus (1972)
http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0351114/

This is the only legitimate image for Gerry Bennett.

The majority of the remainder are for Superman.

This one is of Nite Owl II:

These are of multiple characters:

I do not know how to remove the link to the incorrect images.

There is a thread in which to notify the staff of incorrectly labeled photos at http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/n... . I have just posted there to notify the staff of the 291 mislabeled Gerry Bennett photos.

The thread is only to be used for notices pertaining to the top 5,000 MovieMeter titles or top 5,000 StarMeter people. However, it looks like all of the incorrectly identified Gerry Bennett pictures involve such a title or person, so I've submitted the correction there.

Not a problem as staff will also carry out photo corrections reported here too (exactly as you have done) - it just can't hurt doubling it up by posting over there too.
