MOD Librarian just posted this fantastic link to a site where you type in the name of a movie (that can be found on the Internet Movie Database) and you get a MARC bibliographic record that you can export. The exported file (that has the extension .mrc) can be viewed and/or enhanced in MarcEdit before loading into your ILS.
I’m not sure where MOD Librarian found this site. But it is GREAT. And from what I can tell this is part of a larger service from Amazon? where you can also get records for anything with either an ISBN, EAN, or UPC. The link is: http://amazon.libcat.org/cgi-bin/azorder.pl. There’s an option to export MARC records (the extension for these is .lfts).
Here’s an example of a record returned for the movie “Scarface”:
