The title next to each name is meant to be the most representative or, as we call it, the "Best Known For" title. The idea is to help people identify each name at a glance so that they can find the desired match more easily -- in the example above, everyone should be able to decide whether they want to see the filmography of Harrison Ford the silent-movie era star or Harrison Ford the Indiana Jones star and click on the right link.
The "Best Known For" title is automatically chosen among his/her credits through a complex weighting system.
Every credit in their filmography is assigned a "weight" based on a series of factors. These may include:
Since this is an entirely mathematical approach, some of our choices may occasionally not be the best or most representative ones. Unfortunately, since the selection is automated, we are not able to change those titles on a case-by-case basis.
However, the algorithm used to select them is constantly being improved. Also, those choices are recalculated on a periodical basis, so the addition of new credits on someone's filmography will have an impact on their 'Best Known For' titles.
'Known For' credits are also displayed on filmography pages on IMDbPro and IMDb.com
On IMDbPro.com pages, a list of up to three 'known for' credits appears near the top of the filmography page; on IMDb.com a selection of 4 'known for' titles is usually positioned near the middle of the page immediately above the credit listing.
Please be aware that not all pages on IMDb.com will feature a 'known for' section. We are currently experimenting with various display and design options so this section may not be displayed for everyone. Also, the availability of this feature is based on several factors, including the number of titles in a person filmography and whether those titles have a poster/cover image associated with them.
