This authoritative work reveals, for the first time in book form, the whereabouts of historic documentary motion pictures preserved by the U.S. National Archives. This treasure trove includes over 360,000 film reels that document a century of American and World history. Unfortunately, relatively few people know that these historically significant films exist and even fewer know how to find them.

America's Film Vault is designed to assist writers, researchers, historians, film and video makers, content producers, genealogists, and others in locating the historically rich, celluloid-based, moving images preserved in the motion picture film holdings of the National Archives.

So, if you're ready to play detective, take a crack at the combination, and investigate the bowels of the vault, you need a guide map...and this is it!
