Well, just about every (an exaggeration) Alfred Hitchcock film has a
suitcase as a main plot device, starting with Blackmail and his story
about the Maguffin. And god knows, there's many silent comedies have
suitcases as plot devices. For example, here's just a Google video
search for "Harold Lloyd" and suitcase:

Go to IMDB and start a word search for suitcase and you come up with
100s of them.

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.
