Sorry, I was away for a week an then too busy to look for the essay. I
believe your instructor may be looking for Sontag's _A Note on Novels and
Films_. I found it in the paperback (First Delta printing) 1967 edition of
_Against Interpretation_, pp. 242-245. The bibliographic information is
quite messy but there is a note that it had been originally published in The
Supplement of The Columbia Spectator (no dates or other information are given).

Hope this helps.
