A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away . . .

It was the dawn of the internet before the advent of web
pages. Intrepid fans of cinema created lists of films and actors, and posted
these lists on the USENET group rec.arts.movies. On October 17, 1990 one of
these ardent fans, Col
(founder and CEO of IMDb), posted a set of UNIX shell scripts to rec.arts.movies
creating a searchable database of filmography data, thus publicly launching
IMDb in its earliest form.

the last twenty-five years, IMDb has evolved to its present form with
the passionate help of many contributors: Col and the IMDb staff, data
contributors, reviewers, users, actors and actresses, producers, directors, writers and
other members of the film and television industry. IMDb’s twenty-fifth
anniversary is not just a celebration for IMDb, but for everyone who has been
involved through the years.

Happy 25th IMDb Anniversary everyone!
