and five years of release for international films.
Research and Bibliography Instructions:
Research: You need to find written sources about your film from the time in whichit was produced and released. These may include film reviews, interviews with thefilmmakers, advertisements, or articles about the production, premiere, theatricalexploitation, or box office performance in industry trades.
a. The best way to find these sources is through the Media History DigitalLibrary. You can access the search engine through: Lantern.mediahist.org.
b. Enter your film title in the Search box (in quotes may help if the titleincludes common words), then narrow the years (on the left side) to twoyears before and after the release year of your film (or five years after forinternational films).
c. Look through the results (do not just use the first eight that come up!). Youneed to find a variety of sources. Eight advertisements or eight box officereports is not good research. You should find a mix of ads, articles,interviews, industry reports, and reviews.
d. When you find one that looks interesting, click Read in Context. This willopen the magazine, though the page may be wrong. You often have to flipback a page or two to find the right one.
e. If you are not finding enough quality sources:
i. Try searching the star or director of your film.
ii. Focus on one of the Collections such as Fan Magazines or TechnicalJournals.
iii. For international films, you will need to search up to five years afterthe release year since they often take time to be released in the U.S.They may also have been released under alternate titles.
In your bibliography, you will then annotate each citation. This willshow that you have read your sources and know what they will add to your paper.
a. In order to annotate properly, you need to know what publication you areusing. On the search listing, you can click on the periodical title, such asMotion Picture Daily. This will take you to a page with Book/VolumeDetails. At the bottom should be a Description that tells you about thepublication and its intended audience.
b. Annotation Example: This is a review of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari from amajor American trade paper aimed at exhibitors. It shows how Americancritics liked but did not understand the film or its potential to connect withaudiences.
