def show
@actor = Actor.find(params[ :id ])
@movie = Movies.all

Hey Sreeram, I am not sure your snippet will work… it looks like your @movie reference is pulling all movies, and not movies associated with a particular actor.

Like many others (on the last set of exercises), the many-to-one relationship is breaking when attempting to show the movies that an actor is in (similarly with showing the actors a movie has on the previous exercise). I would love to know (and I will update if I find out) why the bottom half of the “show” pages (actor for this exercise, movie for previous exercise) don’t show up.

[And yes, the step-by-step exercise passes the built in test.]

class ActorsController < ApplicationController
def index
@actors = Actor.all

def show
@actor = Actor.find(params[:id])
@movies = @actor.movies
