My library is perplexed when it comes to applying the following 2 established headings for films:

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. Pictures (1969- )

According to a note in one of the authority records, "Cannot determine relationship between Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Bros." so how are these 2 headings being used in the real world by non-LC libraries? Could someone please explain how they apply these 2 headings in their local catalog? In other words, when do you use Warner Bros. and when do you use Warner Bros. Pictures (1969- )? Do you always use one or the other, or are there instances where one is more appropriate then the other?

Thanks for putting up with my silly question! Doug
