Here's some:

1. Angel Face (1952)
Directed by: Otto Preminger
From synopsis: =93=85Since Diane's suitcase was found in Frank's room, both are accused of murder.=94

2. The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
Directed by: Victor Fleming
From synopsis: =93=85without hesitation, she [Dorothy] swiftly packs her suitcase and they trudge down the lonely country dirt road together to find a better world away from the farm.=94

3. It's A Wonderful Life (1946)
Directed by: Frank Capra
From synopsis =93He [George] is in a local luggage and bags store purchasing a suitcase. With his hands outstretched, the moving image of George is suddenly stopped on the screen by the angels, as they inspect and comment upon it.

4. Kiss Me Deadly (1955)
Directed by: Robert Aldrich
From synopsis: "The Great Whatsit" is a small plain box containing an unknown, unearthly, humming power that is unleashed in the apocalyptic and controversial ending. This idea was used as "The Glowing Suitcase"

Here's one for the collective wisdom of the list: One of our faculty members is looking for films from 1920-50 that include suitcases as relatively important plot points.

Ideas?

Thanks!
