The American Film Institute Catalog has won great praise for its comprehensiveness, reliability, and utility. These volumes are an essential purchase for every library, and individual researchers will also find them indispensable. The newest AFI Catalog volume contains over 2500 feature-length films with an emphasis on racial and national ethnic experience in the United States. Included are films from the 1940s and 1950s such as "Giant", "The Defiant Ones", "Gentleman's Agreement", "Bright Victory", and "Broken Arrow". In addition to traditional "Hollywood" films, independent productions by African-American filmmakers and various ethnic and religious organizations are also given extensive treatments. This is the first of the "AFI Catalog" series to include films from more than one decade. Along with the film entries are several indexes, including personal names, ethnic group, subjects, and genre. As with other "AFI Catalog" volumes, full production credits, cast, plot summaries, notes, subject headings, song titles, and bibliographic citations are provided.
