I've always wondered, do the studios or film archives have records of all the extras who either worked on a particular film, or on a particular day? I know it must vary by studio and time period, I just wondered if any ever did. I suppose they must be named in payroll records, if those still exist. I was re-watching "Up the River" from 1930 and there were several actors who had small speaking parts for characters who even had names, but they're not listed in the IDMB. I wondered if I were doing detailed research on a film, if I could find this sort of record on it.
