Try IMDB.com

This web site is a real find for film buffs.  You can find the name of that film you can't quite remember by searching by actor(s) or even by partial title.  You can cross-reference by clicking on the actor in the cast list and find a list of all of his movies.  Also listed (besides cast) are writers, directors and crew.  TV shows are in the database as well.  So, last week when I watched an episode of "House" and recognized 2 actors but couldn't remember from where (!) I was able to search (by season and episode list) and find the answers which would normally have either kept me up or come to me in a flash at 2 a.m.  Give it a try. [Link] www.imdb.com.
