Collection Overview
A classic Warner Bros. animation

Currently taking appointments

Donated to USC by Warner Communications in 1977, the USC Warner Bros. Archives [WBA] is the largest and possibly the richest single studio collection of paper documents in the world.

It is the only collection to bring production, distribution and exhibition records together to document the activities of a vertically integrated studio. In the archives' collection, the making of many classic films - including The Jazz Singer, Casablanca and Rebel Without a Cause - is documented from story acquisition through theatrical release, including daily contributions of actors, directors, producers, and writers.
