    I was thinking about doing a project for school involving instances of film characters named "Phil Green" or "Philip Green". I could have sworn some modern films have used this character name, and wondered if anyone knew of films which had a character with any of these names:

    Philip Green

    Philip Greenburg (Greenberg)

    Philip Schuyler

    (besides Gentleman's Agreement)

    Thanks

    Brett,

    I had never seen the character search before- thanks.

    One thing, I was thinking that the name might have been used as a ref in a film, rather than belonging to a character we see. Didn't know if anyone knew of any.
