When you do the Extend Search, one option you can choose is to search in Online Videos. Selecting this will do your search automatically in several sites that have movies that you can watch online. The movies you can watch in their entirety will be generally be older, since these are mostly the ones in the public domain. But there are lots of scenes from all kinds of movies.

One of the best places to search for these movies is in Google Videos. There are several options you can choose once you do your search. You can limit the length of the movie to more than 20 minutes in length (20+ min.) to get the full length films. There are many full-length films here, along with scenes from many others.

Please note a few problems: 1) Internet Explorer does not work with this site 2) not all videos are viewable from Italy and 3) as with all such sites, you may run across variant languages or inferior versions. Still it’s worth a try!
