This occasionally has come up while I have been a subscriber,
and our list owner has scotched it as I recall. I think rightly. We all *do*
bring up movies from time to time, but I think that the focus should remain
on the slightly less trendy area of written works. There is probably room
for a film noir list, though, should anyone have the energy to start one.
