Coelin, Jr.--who also founded the American Archives of the Factual Film now at the Library of Congress--Business Screen went through several transformations before ending its almost 60-year run. Designed for producers, distributors, and programming and equipment buyers and users within the industrial sector, the journal began with ten issues and two special supplements per year in 1938. Almost 40 years later, in 1977, Business Screen became a supplement to Back Stage and decreased to bimonthly publication. A name change soon followed and the journal briefly became Business and Home TV Screen from 1978-1979 before switching back to Business Screen. In 1983, the journal changed its name for a final time, to Computer Pictures, and ran until 1995. At its most robust in mid-centurdsfunder the title Business Screen, the journal featured material on film festivals, major a/v conferences, new technologies, trends and innovations in industrial filmmaking, editorials, advertisements for equipment and production studios, film synopses and reviews, expansive directories, and yearly surveys of the state of the field. -- Kit Hughes, 2013
