Utterly redundant with Category:Powell and Pressburger films - David Gerard 22:09, 3 Apr 2005 (UTC) Okay, if it satisfies the interest in all articles in chronological order requirement, then it's fine by me - David Gerard 19:45, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Keep. Useful for exploring Powell and Pressburger films, see also Category:Hitchcock films and Template:Alfred Hitchcock's films. The category orients the reader from, say, Category:Films by director, the template orients them within the individual film articles. I see them as complementary, not pointless repetition.

Keep. I'd vote for it to be kept as well. As soon as it appeared I saw that it was much more useful for going from one of their films to another. Much easier that having to go via the Category:Powell and Pressburger films. If anything, it's the Category route that's the harder to navigate although that does have its uses as well.

Recent changes by[edit]

Looking at the recent (10 March 2016) changes by, I can see where they're going with this, but is it worth it? Some of the films listed as Quota Quickies aren't quickie films (in terms of production time, budget or in content) and they certainly aren't quota films, films like The Red Ensign or The Love Test. Not all of his films made before The Edge of the World were Quota Quickies. And what about Powell's TV work like the episodes of The Nurses, The Defenders and Espionage? And what about Return to the Edge of the World? -- SteveCrook (talk) 14:10, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

I've reverted these edits. Too problematic. There is long-standing consensus not to include cast and crew in navboxes normally, but these additions were a pretty incoherent bunch. Also, we should only link to WP:EXISTING articles, and if TV episodes are to be included, the links should be to the individual episodes, not the series as a whole. --Rob Sinden (talk) 12:43, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
