Why was a well known actor not listed in the credits?

Well-known actors have made cameo appearances in a movie and their name is not included in the credits to avoid spoiling the surprise or drawing too much attention to what is essentially a very minor (but often pivotal) role.

Sometimes the missing credit is the result of a billing dispute: a big-name actor makes an appearance in the film and, rather than getting a minor or non-prominent credit, may prefer to take no credit at all.
