Western Americana Filmscript Collection Database

The database of Western movie scripts in the Yale Collection of Western Americana contains information about more than 430 scripts. The records include information about script titles, authors, the directors, producers, production companies, actors and distributors associated with the films, dates and settings as well as shelf locations. The script collection is described in ORBIS under the title "Western filmscript collection" (WA MSS S-1610), and a preliminary finding aid is available at Beinecke Library, but the database provides the ability to employ boolean search operators across fields of data to isolate relevant scripts.

The following fields may be searched using keyword or phrase searching: Title, author, director, producer, actors, production company, distributor, date, setting.
