There are huge NPOV problems here, both pro and con. Lots of vandalism going on in this article. I removed some of the more egregious ones, but I don't know enough about this subject to really give this article the cleanup (or deletion?) it deserves. Nightwatch／respond 18:03, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
Actually, what you said does not make the person notably, unless it has been covered. Please read WP:NOTE and read the part about biographies. Then cite your sources. Simply removing the notability tag will get you nowhere. Improve the article, then remove. Aboutmovies 17:27, 8 April 2007 (UTC).
