Currently, searching for movies by studio are limited to a handful of major current studios (unless they are included in keywords). It would be nice to be able for example to do an advanced search for all movies from RKO Radio Pictures which I have seen (ie rated) if someone asked me for my top three RKO movies or something.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled ATS: Search more companies.

On the http://www.imdb.com/search/title search please can the existing 'Companies' include the sub-companies/brands (such as Stage 6 Films and TriStar Productions within Columbia Pictures). Plus, can Lionsgate Films, The Weinstein Company, Open Road Films, CBS Films, Amblin Partners, DreamWorks Animation, Gaumont Film Company and MGM Pictures be added to the 'Companies' section.

On IMDb.com I'd like to search for Musicals made by RKO up through 1935. Or by United Artists. Or by Joseph Schenck Productions, for that matter. How do I do that?

I see that on the Advanced Search page I can select from among 8 studios, and Sony will get me old Columbia films. But RKO (co0041421) and UA (co0026841) were major studios back in the day. How do I access them?

Also, I don't want all the movies MGM is now attached to, namely all the Warner Bros films (not to mention Goldwyn and many more.) I just want the films they PRODUCED. See results of
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?companies=mgm&genres=musical&release_date=,1935&title_t...
Footlight Parade is WB
Indiscreet is Schenck + UA, and doesn't even have MGM as a distributor at all
Whoopee is Goldwyn

I've tried substituting the company number for the name in the url above, but got all the movies from anyone. Do you have a parameter name (instead of "companies") for Production company Number?
