The American Film Institute Catalog Feature Films 1921-1930. Volumes I and II.
Munden, Kenneth W., Ed.
This two-volume catalog describes all feature length films made and released in the United States from January 1, 1921, through December 31, 1930 (6606 films are listed). Each film entry includes its title, physical description, production credits, cast credits, and a description of the contents. Films are labeled by subject (for example, melodrama, comedy, Western, and Western melodrama) and are indexed (in the second volume) by subject and by credits. Information was obtained primarily from the U.S. Copyright Office, the Motion Picture Division of New York State, and records of the major film studios now located in Hollywood. (Upon completion, this two-volume set is the first of a projected 19-set series of catalogs which will cover film production in the United States from 1893 to the present.) (CH)
