Cast List?

What's going on with the cast list in TCM's daily/weekly/monthly schedules? If it was April, I'd think t was an April Fool's joke. Most entries show, not the lead cast, but minor character cast members. For instance, today's (10/19) entry for "Saratoga Trunk" indicates the cast is Helen Freeman, Chester Clute, and Monte Blue, ignoring the leads Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman and Flora Robson. Most of the other entires for the month are similar. Luckily, where Leonard Maltin's review is also available, the actual leads are shown, but not all films have this. Scanning for a particular star is difficult with this situation.

I believe these casting list are done by a computer program that list he names from some type of master casting listing (file) for each movie.   The listing are so OFF that no human could be that clueless.
