Help & About
This search engine searches only in the titles of the database of The Movies of Bud Spencer &
- You can search for more than one keyword at the same time.
- There are no boolean operators acknowledged (no AND, OR, NOT etc.).
- Keywords have to consist out of more than two characters.
- Clear the keywords field by using the button "Clear".
- You may add a keyword from the list. Just choose one or more.
- Because of the number of titles available in the database,
searching can take quite a time. You can reduce the time
needed for the search process by selecting:
- the kind of movie: movies with only Bud Spencer, movies
with only Terence Hill, or movies with both
- the language(s): there are titles in a number of
languages, select only the appropriate
- the period(s): 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s.
- the extras which should be present: a cast, pictures,
an abstract, screen shots, links, sounds or wise words.
- By selecting the checkbox "Case sensitive" you can make
your search more particular. But be careful with this feature,
you could miss easily the title you were looking for.
- By selecting the checkbox "Treat the words as one phrase"
you tell the search engine that the words you give as
keywords, are in fact ONE search string, with ALL SPACES.
- By selecting the checkbox "Auto-refresh # titles" you will not influence
the search, but it will make it easier to see how many titles will be
searched. Every time you change one of the other checkboxes (movies, languages or
periods) the number of titles that will be searched will be counted. Because this
is a "heavy" option, it is optional. You can also hit the button
"Count # titles".
- Special characters in titles like ä, ë, Ú etc. are
registered in this search engine as the special character says. So
the key "für" will result in a title with "für" in it, while the
key "fur" or "fuer" will not.
- The status of the search process is given in the statusbar of the opened window.
- The results are presented in the following way. Titles are
grouped per number of keywords that fit into the title. In
each group the titles are sorted in ascending order. The
number of keywords fitting in the title is given between brackets in front of the title.
Behind the title you'll find information about the period, who's playing in the movie,
and the language of the title (e.g. DAN=Danish, ENG=English, GER=German, ITA=Italian etc.).
- Each title listed in the results is a link to the corresponding movie in The Movies of Bud Spencer & Terence Hill.
