"This work analyzes the stereotypical image of librarians, in motion
pictures from the silent era to the 21st century. The work briefly
describes each film, and then examines its librarian, considering every
aspect of the total character from socio-economic conditions and
motivations for leaving or not leaving the library, to personal attributes,
to props, plot situations and lines"--Provided by publisher.
