About this collection

A selection of early casting directories from the Library’s core collections. Casting directories have a long relationship with the motion picture industry and were indispensable mainstays for providing exposure and employment to actors. This digital collection features early issues of The Standard and the Academy Players Directory considered the “casting bibles” of their time. These bound directories include actor headshots, names, studios, and film titles, and provide researchers with a visual overview of studio casting history.
