The American Film Institute Catalogue is an encyclopedic listing of virtually all American films produced through 1972 (when the public funding ran out). It is much more detailed and reliable than the imdb.com--and has no advertising. The URL for the AFI Cat is: http://afi.chadwyck.com.proxy.library.nd.edu/home

Although it was a British film, because it was distributed in the US, The 39 Steps appears. While it has the usual cast, plot summary, etc., the listing also has citations listed where you may verify the data, read reviews or find additional production information.
