Movie stills

One of our faculty members in ethnic studies has asked me a question that
I'm not fully prepared to answer, so I thought I'd asked the more
experienced. Here's his request:

I have heard that there are actually companies that have pr stills for
mainstream Hollywood films and that are able to sell "one time print
rights" of these stills for a reasonable cost. Have you ever heard of
anything along these lines? Or do you have other ideas of how we might go
about acquiring photographs to illustrate a text we are writing?

Thanks in advance for Web or traditional sources I can point this person to.
