And on a personal notem 2 favorites:

Desk Set =AD Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn =AD Tracy as computer
specialist hired to install computer in library of national television
network leads to rampant fear that computer will replace the librarians
(Hepburn, and Joan Blondell!)

Storm Center =AD Bette Davis as librarian in small town who refuses to remove
books (on communism, I believe) from public library. Ends with the entire
library being burned in arson.

Both titles are very timely still.
