If your library subscribes to the online version of the American Film
Institute Catalog, in the "Advanced Search" mode you can try "suitcase"
as a keyword and limit the years searched accordingly. The AFI database
tends to have pretty good plot synopses and keyword indexing.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
