Lantern, the search engine for early film history

Leave a comment

Lantern is a search portal created by the Media History Digital Library and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Communication Arts to search a digitized collection of early industry periodicals from 1867 to 1978 relating to film, television, and radio broadcasting, with the bulk of them in the 1920s-1940s.  Among the titles that can be searched are Variety, Photoplay, the Journal of the Society of Motion Picture Engineers, Movie Makers, and the utterly brilliantly named Motography, International Projectionist, and Talking Machine World.   (I think I’m going to spend the rest of the week struggling not to write a screenplay called “Talking Machine World”.)
