Since 1934, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has organized motion picture credit information and published it, primarily for distribution to the motion picture community, in the Screen Achievements Records Bulletin. Since 1978, Greenwood Press has provided general accessibility to this information, and continues to do so with the third volume of the Annual Index to Motion Picture Credits (1980). Data for this volume is composed of that used in determining contenders in the Annual Academy Awards ceremony, and that provided about films unrelated to the Academy event, but produced in the Los Angeles area. Each entry includes: title, production companies, releasing companies, approximate completion date, running time, MPAA rating, producer, director, art director, cinematographer, film editor, costume designer, sound, music, writers, and cast. In addition to the complete entry for each film, many elements are indexed: by 10 major crafts (producers, costume designers, actors, etc.) showing individual name and films; by releasing company; by individual name with reference to the craft and film; and-- a new feature in 1980-- by character names.
