Credits Anomalies

This page has moved to the Wiki and will no longer be updated here.

Listed by episode number. The actor's name appears first. The source who reported the anomaly to me is shown in brackets unless I found it myself. Thanks to all who have contributed!

To qualify as an anomaly, usage in the show must disagree with the credit or there must be an error in the actor's name. Using a name not in the credit, such as a character's given name, is no longer considered an anomaly as long as the credited name is used at least once.

Arline Sax/Arlene Martel
[Henry McNulty] points out that the actress Arline Sax in episode #146 is the same person as Arlene Martel in episode #267. More details can be found at her IMDb page. [5/16/03]

Casey Adams/Max Showalter
[Donald Smith] reports that the actor credited as Casey Adams in episodes #44, #101 and #127 later appears credited as Max Showalter in episodes #174, #211 and #236! The IMDb documents this situation and has a short biography but doesn't explain the name duality. [6/4/00]
[Charles Richmond] explains that Max Showalter's name was changed to the more bankable Casey Adams when he was hired as a featured player by 20th Century Fox boss Darryl Zanuck. Info here. [4/12/05]

Jack Betts/Hunt Powers
[D. A. Supernaw and Charles Richmond] point out that the actor Jack Betts in episodes #125 and #157 is the same person as Hunt Powers in episodes #223 and #265. [9/10/05]

Charles H. Radilac/Charles Hradilac
[Charles Richmond] notes this rather apparent typographical error. He appeared in #171 and #253. [9/21/07]
