Many thanks for the replies.  Further investigation shows that only one of the two identities on no 96044888 has an existing NAR.  What made me think that there was an NAR for the second identity is that IMDB conflates two different people named Patrick Ryan who were active around the same time, one in England and one in Australia.  There is an NAR for the Englishman, but the second identity on no 96044888 is the Australian.  So I will be making a new NAR for the Australian producer.  But the discussion has helped me decide how to handle the first identity on no 96044888, which is already represented by no2013079161.  I also submitted a correction to IMDB.  Thank you for the help!
