Riassunto: AMERICA'S FILM VAULT: A Reference Guide to the Motion Pictures Held by the U.S. National Archives is the comprehensive new book by award-winning author and film-sleuth Phillip W. Stewart. Some of the best kept history secrets are buried deep within America's film vault. This essential reference guide unshrouds, for the first time in book form, the whereabouts of historic motion picture films preserved in the National Archives.

This treasure trove includes over 360,000 film reels that document a century of American and world history. Unfortunately, relatively few people know that these historically significant films exist, and even fewer know how to find them.

AMERICA'S FILM VAULT is an indispensable reference guide that discloses how these vintage films are organized and where to find them; exposes over 330 Government and Donated records that have motion pictures buried within them; uncovers and specifically identifies over 1,460 film titles and provides topical references to thousands more; and reveals-all with a comprehensive 2,130-plus subject index that sheds light on a vast variety of rare films.

According to William T. Murphy, former Chief of the Motion Picture, Sound, and Video Branch of the National Archives, America's Film Vault is, "...a convenient overview of National Archives and Records Administration's motion picture holdings, one difficult to obtain from any other source."

If you're ready to play detective, take a crack at the combination, and investigate the bowels of the vault, you need a guide map...and this is it! Discover "reel" treasures with AMERICA'S FILM VAULT. Check out the author's website (pwstewart.com) for more information about this and his other books in The Historic Footage Project.

Dall'autore: On the day I discovered the National Archives and Records Service (as it was known back then) in downtown Washington, DC, back in the early 1980's, I found myself being told the "researcher do's and don'ts" by Charles, one of the Motion Picture, Sound, and Video Branch librarians. Since it was just about closing time, he gave me a quick orientation tour and then passed to me a blue-covered, 8x11 inch, 32-page booklet and suggested strongly that I should read it from cover to cover before I returned. I found the booklet had no real title, but was prepared for the National Archives Conference on the Use of Audiovisual Archives as Original Source Materials and was co-authored by Archives employees Mayfield S. Bray and William T. Murphy in 1972. It proved to be an excellent overview of the motion picture holdings broken down by Record Groups (RG) and included a short list of featured film subjects and titles for each. The best part was that it was simple and easy to use; if you look inside this RG, you will find films about X, Y, and Z. I used it extensively during my first months of sleuthing around the catalog cards with great success.

Fast-forward 25 years. I was packing up the house in preparation for a work-related relocation when I came across the now well-worn copy of the Bray and Murphy booklet. Curious, I contacted the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), as its known today, to see if it had been updated any time since it was publication 35 years ago. I was amazed to find out that it had not. "Computerization you know...everything you need to know is on the website," they said. Over a period of several months, I searched around the site but found nothing that dealt with the general motion picture holdings of the Archives as well as that battered old booklet. I resolved to correct that situation and this book is the result.

AMERIACA'S FILM VAULT is a guidebook. It is a starting point, the first step of possibly many, in the motion picture discovery process. Additional research may well be necessary to complete your investigation. Among your options: contacting the Motion Picture, Sound, and Video Branch via email, hire a private film researcher, or better yet, personally visit the National Archives and take advantage of the services of the Research Room staff.

This volume, as well as all of the books in The Historic Footage Project, is written out of a great appreciation of our country's rich collection of motion picture recorded history and my desire to ensure that it's preserved and accessible for future generations. It is worth cherishing. It's also incredibly valuable to know what's in America's film vault and where to look to get your hands on a copy of it.
