What Is Peter Bogdanovich 'Known For'?

Peter Bogdanovich died last week at age 82. Here are some of the headlines:

  • CNN: Peter Bogdanovich, the Oscar-nominated director of 'The Last Picture Show,' dead at 82
  • The New York Times: Peter Bogdanovich, 82, Director Whose Career Was a Hollywood Drama, Dies
  • Variety: Ellen Burstyn Remembers 'Last Picture Show' Director Peter Bogdanovich: 'He Loved and Understood Film Better Than Anyone'

Director, director, director. And here's what he's “known for” according to the algorithms of IMDb:

One out of four. Given IMDb's known-for history, I suppose we'll take it. 

Tech geeks are kind of screwing up the knowledge of the world, aren't they? “Since Peter Bogdanovich has more acting credits, he's mostly an actor. Since Steven Spielberg has more producing credits, he's mostly a producer. That's what they're known for.”
