The Full Scripts Database Movie Scripts Online contains scenarios of about 1500 American films, such as Ben Hur, JFK, Casablanca, Bonnie and Clyde, Platoon. Some of them have never been printed. This highly structured archive offers a bibliographic and biographical database of directors and writers along with the entire text of the films themselves.
We watch, discuss and analyze movies, but we rarely read scenarios. While some of the familiar movie scripts appeared in printed form, most of them have never been published in any format. Researchers have difficulty finding original scripts, acting and gaining authority from holders who are often reluctant to borrow rare and unique documents.
Documents allow you to "watch" the film with the author's perspective, which sometimes differs from the final version. Each scenario is supplemented by bibliographic and biographical (including character and character list) data, a breakdown of individual scenes, and basic information about both the screenwriter and the director. The database also stores individual scenarios.
Take advantage of the FREE trial access to this unique database, until December 1, 2018!
