This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: ATS: Can we get an advanced studio search option?

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?

Company specific search beyond the preset subset is not supported at the moment, sorry.
