1922, Netflix movie, linked to Anchrman

I there,
I don’t know if it’s only a problem of mine, but when I search “1922” in the search box, the first result is the one I’m looking for: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6214928/
but when I click on it to see it’s page, I get this one instead: https://beta.icheckmovies.com/movies/1922-anchorman+the+legend+of+ron+burgundy
in the URL, in fact it says 1922-anchorman+…


This is a known error in the beta-version of iCM. I wonder if @Marijn found a solution to this yet.

Here’s the thing. In the beta every movie gets a unique number. The url says that number right behind “movies/”. For example, The Dark Knight is number 6:


Try what happens when you fake a title with number 6 in the url, for example:


If you go to that page, it will redirect to The Dark Knight, because it recognizes the number 6.

But a problem occurs if a title starts with a number followed by a dash.
This is the link to the live version of a movie called " 6-Headed Shark Attack":


When you go to that page and you click on the Pssst-link, where do you think you’ll end up? You’ll be redirected to The Dark Knight on the beta, because 6- will be recognized as such.

The title you brought up has no dash in it. Why does it redirect? Take a look at the url:


You see the title is followed by a dash and the year of release. That is done in cases when there are more movies with the same title. This is a movie from 1978 with the same title:


This movie will be directed to the correct beta-page, because the url doesn’t have a dash.
The link you posted redirects to " Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" simply because 1922 happens to be the unique number of that movie.

So this is the explanation. I don’t have a solution. Well for now, you just can’t use the beta for this movie. If you want to check it, just go to the live-version of the movie:

It seems to me Marijn didn’t consider such titles when he made this database decision and I don’t know if he thought of a solution yet.

Here’s 1922 on the beta, btw. I found it by going to all movies and filter by director.

So fast and so clear! Thanks you all

And FYI, this will not be an issue once we’ve completely moved to the new version.

I figured something like that. Thanks.
