  • Imdb entry only lists one entry. Not notable. Delete. RickK 08:02, Mar 16, 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, wikipedia is not a memorial. One IMDB entry is not notable. Mgm|(talk) 09:06, Mar 16, 2005 (UTC)
  • Absolute and clear Keep. Wexler was not the type of filmmaker that gets an entry in Imdb (exactly why he should be included here btw), but he had a big influence on US culture, his films won many awards, and his passing was noted in many places including npr and a featured obituary at the NYT.

  • Keep. (Though, obviously, move to Sy Wexler.) I was going to point out the Times obit, but Jgm beat me to it. See some of his work on the Internet Archive. grendel|khan 15:37, 2005 Mar 17 (UTC)
    • Note: the page has been cleaned up a bit. There's more info at the Times obit that can be funnelled into the article. grendel|khan 16:03, 2005 Mar 17 (UTC)
  • If the decision is for the article to be kept, I strongly recommend it to be moved to Sy Wexler, too. - Mailer Diablo 17:11, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep and allow for organic growth. Support renaming to Sy Wexler. Google is a poor barometer as is demonstrated at Wikipedia:Google test. --GRider\talk 17:36, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • And the lack of anything important at imdb? RickK 22:58, Mar 17, 2005 (UTC)
      • This is like asking why you couldn't find pork chops at the bakery. To spell it out: IMDB is a database of commercial films, not educational films. It's entirely possible to be notable in a field not currently covered extensively on the web, you know. Jgm 01:23, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep people with obituaries in the New York Times. Failing that, keep award-winning documentary filmmakers. Kappa 11:54, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep - David Gerard 23:25, 18 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. -- Jmabel | Talk 04:37, Mar 19, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep - having a non-paid obit in the NYT means you ARE notable. Fawcett5 21:59, 21 Mar 2005 (UTC)
