3. FICTION FILMS

​fiction films on video, screenplays, criticism & interpretation:

3a. Videos (Videocassettes, DVDs, etc.).

This represents a modification of LC schedule since LC does not classifiy fiction films. Since the numbers are not consistent with the LC schedules, do not create 050 _4 for videos, but use 1st indicator 0 in 852 so numbers sort with real LC class numbers.

Include here also film adaptations of works of fiction, e.g. a video of a film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.

Include here also film and television adaptations of dramatic works, e.g. a video of Kenneth Branagh's film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, or a video of Laurence Olivier's film adaptation of Henry V, or a video of the Maurice Evans Macbeth originally broadcast on the Hallmark Hall of Fame television series. (Rationale: LC classes books about film adaptations of dramatic works in PN1997/PN1997.2)

For videos of films originally released through 2000:

852 0 0 ‡b <location> ‡h PN1997 ‡i <cutter to title of film> <date of video > <format> <LC if applicable>

NB: format term for accompanying videos is entered in CHRON.

EXAMPLE. Screenplay for All about Eve, published 1951.

Bibliographic record for screenplay. Note that if the book consists of only or primarily the screenplay, AACR2 21.28 applies, and a related work added entry (not a subject) is made for the motion picture. On the other hand, some books may also warrant a subject if the work is primarily about the motion picture but also includes the screenplay.
