Good point (thanks) - most of the films she's assigned are from the 1970s - these are the first ones she's teaching and she did mention that a few are from the 1960s. Just in case anyone is interested, I've put her list at the bottom of my message.

Thanks to those of you who have already replied - Randy, wouldn't you know it, we don't have past issues of the Hollywood Reporter or Premier (so, who is the librarian here anyway? Oh, that's right, I am - so obviously, I need to try to make some purchases - although in my defense, I haven't been here that long and it is a relatively new program).

And as Jessica pointed out, Two-land Blacktop might be really hard - only thing we've found is that it bombed at the box office.

Many thanks again - if I find a fabulous resource beside those mentioned, I'll let you all know.

"One of our professors is teaching a course on films of the 1970s."

I may be picky, and I am sure you are aware, but your professor does know that all of those films you mention (but for Two-Lane) are from the 1960s, right?
