CASABLANCA should be Bergman's number one "known for" (by a mile) but doesn't even show in her TOP FOUR. The algorithm here is clearly deeply flawed and needs a rejig. I've read the article "Known For title selection" and it makes sense on paper, but the reality of what appears on the IMDb pages is quite different from the ostensible criteria given there.

Having searched this forum, I see it's been mentioned many times that this feature is currently totally worthless, and that it's a cash grab to encourage professionals to claim their page. Kindly rethink.

And while I'm here, bring back the message boards! Cheers! :)

Strange.
When I list her filmography by popularity, Casablanca is 1st:
https://www.imdb.com/filmosearch/?role=nm0000006&sort=moviemeter,asc
Seems like the weighting system should pick that as 1st.

Hi Sinnerphile -

There seems to have been a technical problem on our end, I have made the appropriate adjustments so that "Casablanca" is now displaying as the top "Known For" title for Ingrid Bergman: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000006/


Cheers!
