Wrong date for film[edit]

Hello Out There was directed in 1950, per the seminal Whale biography written by Whale's executor, James Curtis. But apparently because demanding the last word is more important than accurate information, this template has been locked with the wrong date of 1949. This should be changed.

Wrong date for film restored[edit]

The incorrect date for the film Hello Out There has been reinserted in the template. "TheMovieBuff" is unilaterally adding information that has been shown to be false, apparently relying on the film's IMDB entry but IMDB is not a reliable source. Per Whale's biographer and executor Whale directed the film in 1950, as is stated and sourced at James Whale. See also this New York Times article citing the year as 1950. I suggest that this be changed to reflect the correct date and that the template be fully protected so that TheMovieBuff can no longer introduce factually incorrect information.

Film missing from template[edit]

James Whale's final film, Hello Out There (1950) has been removed from this template. I thought the goal of Wikipedia was to present accurate information, not pander to the whims of editors who want to hide facts. Can someone please restore it and warn the person who keeps removing it to knock it off or face consequences for vandalism? Thanks. (talk) 17:14, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
