ReelWeb – CinemaScope (badly in need of an update -- no time :)


Please remember: In sync with the ethos of the web, the list below is always in the making. Please let us know if you've made new discoveries as you make your excursions into cyberia, and please check out related web pages on this site as well.

Note as well that, while many web sites may be informative and useful, they are rarely a substitute for the more sustained scholarly discussion of a book or print journals. Get familiar with the library's International Film Index and the MLA Index for periodical literature, among others, as well as our textbooks' extensive bibliographies for further reading.
