American Film Institute Catalog

American Film Institute Catalog

This should be your starting point for the assignment. It provides comprehensive filmographic information on over 45,000 films produced in the U.S. Entries for each film include cast and crew information, a detailed synopsis, background information about the production, and a bibliography that citces articles about the film in trade journals of the era. This last feature is especially useful, since it can point you toward articles that are otherwise difficult to track down.

Generally a more reliable reference resource than IMDb.
