American Film Scripts Online provides authorized scripts of silent films, contemporary films and films through the decades. This is an unprecedented collection for studying film history, pop culture, American and world history, ethnic and diversity issues, writing, the business of movies and more.
Published electronically and indexed with Alexander Street's Semantic Indexing, the database includes films from Warner Brothers, other studios and independent filmmakers. Researchers can finally examine the writing and learn how the writer’s intention compares with the producer’s and director’s finished work. Search by writer, director, actor, subject of scene, character, studio and more.
