I don't think that general sales information, including auctions, should
be posted on this list -- I get enough of that in my other e-mail as it
is.  If there is an item of interest to scholars that might not otherwise
be known (a museum is selling a special exhibition book, for example),
then I don't mind hearing about it.  But 'check out these prices' type
things don't belong on a scholarly list.

While I'm writing, am I the only one who doesn't CARE if Elizabeth Taylor
is viewed as beautiful?  Or that someone's head is large?  Or that
someone is short?  I don't think this kind of information forwards film
scholarship.  With all due respect, I think these issues are not
appropriate for discussion on this site.
