I began my research on Jedda by going to UrbanCinefile.com, which provided a lot of background information to serve as a foundation. I either forgot to check box office results while that site was still free, or they just were not available, and I was not able to find those statistics anywhere else since most databases do not go back as far as the 1950s with box office results. The Internet Movie Database was useful in obtaining cast and credits information. From there I went to the Australian Film Institute's website where I found many links to other sites about Jedda, including interviews with director Charles Chauvel and a book by his wife Elsa. Then I proceeded to use search engines (Google and Yahoo) to search information on Jedda.
