Hundreds of video clips of classic movies like "It Happened One Night," "His Girl Friday," "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gandhi" as well as more recent hits like, "Hancock" are available to be streamed from the site. The site also features contemporary works including rare glimpses at the making of special effects from films such as "Hancock" and "Da Vinci Code." The new design offers easier navigation to sections dedicated to Filmmaking, Visual Effects and Animation, Film Preservation, the studio's history as well as Culver City.
