Here's my two-cents (or less) worth on B-movie stuff. Last semester I saw on the cable station AMC a documentary about Republic studios. I was loaded with clips, but I'm not exactly sure how to get a copy (I assume contacting American Movie Classics would be a first step). Also, I know that Susan Kray, a recent graduate of the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois, wrote her dissertation on Republic. Hope this helps.
