The Movie Database Support

Hi, all

I found the "known for" (movies) part of API search result, from both "Multi Search" and "Search People", returns 3 items. But there're at least 6 items displayed on web page.

Hi @idealhack,

If you're looking for more results on the search methods, you can't. If this is something you want to build on your own, or say a person detail page like we do here, you can get close by using the /combined_credits method and calculating this locally.

I have an open ticket for a dedicated method.

FYI--The person method now includes a known_for_department which you can use to know what department to build a persons "known for" data with.
