First on IMDB

August 8, 2010

Today’s pop quiz question is: Who was the first actor ever uploaded to the imdb.com database?

The answer is Fred Astaire. You can get to him using the following url: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000001/

Notice the number in the end. I found this out accidentally by looking up Sylvester Stallone the other day, and I noticed that his url ended with the number 230. I just got curious about number 1. Since the site is American, I could’ve guessed it was going to be someone like him.
