Movie buffs will love this online version of the Harry Ransom Center's museum exhibit called Making Movies. The emphasis of the exhibit is on the collaborative effort it takes to make a movie. On the site, there are almost 20 features to watch, listen to, revel in, and analyze. The Ransom Center has used its vast collection of "original scripts, storyboards, production photos, and call sheets...in addition to screenplays," to bring to life the process of movie making. Visitors might want to start with "Watch a Video Preview of the Making Movies Exhibition", before they head to "Learn How the Composer Timed the Music for Duel in the Sun", "Learn More About How Film Studios Controlled Their Publicity", and "Discover How Theaters Used "Slack Night" to Attract Patrons". Visitors in the Central Texas area should check out the list of films, on the far right hand side of the page, all of which are being shown in the film series for the Center's exhibit.
