It couldn't have been until the late sevenites.  After _Star Wars_.  There
are a lot of uncredited cast memebers on _Star Wars_.  The bartender who
says "We don't serve their kind in here!" is one of them.  There are a lot
listed on the IMDb.  _Jaws_'s credits are incredibly short--much shorter
than I would expect them to be by today's standards.  As far as _SW_ goes,
James Earl Jones doesn't count, since he was deliberately left off, like
John Candy in _Career Opportunities_.  He was given credit in the special
edition, though.

you know it."--K, Barry Sonnenfeld's _Men in Black_.

by THE PEOPLE."--Tom Lehrer
