Get it right

Harold Wilson (1916-1995)
Memo to the subeditors at the Hollywood Reporter. Harold Wilson was British Prime Minister from 1964 to 1970, and again from 1974 to 1976. As for this Howard Wilson, there has never been a former British Prime Minister by this name, much less any other famous people. Among other things, Harold Wilson had the honour of being namechecked in Taxman, the first track on the 1966 Beatles album, Revolver.
