We have access to nearly a thousand different reels, tapes and recordings dating from 1936 through 2000. Obviously we can only include the best of the best (about 80 so far) because we need time in the film for interviews with those who made the films as well. We also talk to preservationists at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and The Library of Congress who do a great job explaining how priceless some of these moving images are.
Bottom line: there is no shortage of sources or material.
