Need to merge two listings for same film in IMDb -cannot because they have differing release years. In particular: Doing It (1982) is identical with Doing It! (1983), both had release years in title chosen as approximations. How do I fix? Any submission of Merging or correction is rejected due to differing years.

I think I have found a workaround: for another pair of dupes I have changed the release year of the dupe (the listing that needs to disappear via merger with correct listing) to be the same as the original listing.  Then when that is processed correctly, I can submit a routine Title Correction to merge A into B, that should be accepted because they will have the same year in the title.  I will continue to test this method.
