Dear All,
Besides the titles that come immediately to mind--How to Get Ahead in
Advertising, Putney Swope, Kramer vs. Kramer, Lost in America, Crazy
People, What Women Want, Lover Come Back--could you please send me
titles of your favorite U.S. movies that incorporate a depiction of
advertising agencies and advertisers in the plot? This is for a faculty
Thanks very much for your input!
Cheers, Danette
