I've read other threads regarding credit/non-credit in movies, but haven't come across my particular question. I was watching "Julie and Julia" last night and noticed something odd about the credits. There were credits given for the "Houghton Mifflin Executive" (3 of them) but no credit was given for the "Knopf executives" of which there were at least 2. One of them, a woman, had several scenes including one with Streep where they come up with the name of the book. It is a much bigger part than many others that were credited. She doesn't appear in the original movie credits or in IMDB, unless I'm missing something, which is also possible. She isn't a big star, so those reasons for non-credit don't apply, and her role was bigger than others who were credited. Any idea?
The face of the first Knopf executive was never shown clearly, and so probably did not get a credit. The second executive, with a much greater role, was credited by name as Judith Jones.
