Follow That Image--Film & Television Database
24,000 black & white and color images from the Motion Picture & Television Archives take you from 1910 to today. Follow images of a young Frank Sinatra with Bob Hope (early tv,1948) to a candid dinner shot of Old Blue Eyes with President Kennedy (1961). See the amazing aerial view of Astaire & Rogers on the soundstage of "Top Hat," with the crew surrounding the stars.
Film & Television Literature Index with Full Text database offers a special search function so you can enjoy these images:
- choose "Images" from the top green menu bar
- type in your term(s)
- and follow the images!
You'll find film/tv sets with directors and actors at work, iconic images, industry insights into staff & equipment, costumes, cars, and more. Search any year, names (directors, photographers, actors, film/show names), award shows, countries, and more.
Images are copyrighted by the MPTV, and the Film Image Collection is owned by EBSCO publishing. Images are for internal and personal use only, no publication allowed—hence, no images are embedded in this blog, but from the fabulous Salome to a 1920s Swanson signing her contract, you'll enjoy this database and its image function!
Tips: Sign in on the database to create a personal folder, and "add" items to it so you can save the ones you'd like to see later. Ignore the "find it" icon, since there is no accompanying text.
Find Film & Television Literature Index with Full Text on the Database list from the KSL homepage and/or from the Case Catalog. Use the database by logging on to your VPN to activate it, or use your Library PIN to authenticate as an OhioLINK user.
