Hi, Tade Walker.

Could you specify the list you are referring to: is it a google search result, or IMDb poll, or user's list?.. Please provide the link.
Thank you in advance

When I google "100 greatest screen performances of all time", the only match with exactly that phrase is 
Premiere Magazine's 100 greatest performances of all time - IMDb
And it's a list by a user (not an IMDb editor) based (presumably) on a list Premiere Magazine generated at some point.

When I do an Advanced Search output of the list, only 86 names appear, so in some sense there are 14 "duplicates". But those 14 "extra" records are 2nd (or more?) performances by actors already on the list. (Unfortunately Name lists do not include the ability to sort alphabetically, and the Advanced Search washes out the comment added by the list maker that states the character & film from Premiere's list.)

Perhaps you're looking at that list using Grid view, which also washes out the comments. Use the Detail view to see the comments:

If this is not what you were talking about, you need to clarify your question.

As a bonus, here's a poll about the doubly-listed actors.
