in general, this term refers to the list of technical personnel, cast, and crew of a film; specifically, it refers to the list of names and functions of persons and corporations contributing and responsible for the artistic or intellectual content of a film, such as: "Story by...", "Screenplay by...", "Photography by...", etc.; sometimes distinguished from the cast (the performers in front of the camera); see also titles or post-credits sequence.
  Example: The beginning of the stark credits in Citizen Kane (1941); Spellbound (1945) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) are unusual in that they both don't have end credits; in the latter's case, it concludes with a placard reading "EXIT MUSIC" while soft mandolin music plays.
