>My library has a special collection, "Law in Popular Culture", which presently
>holds ca. 300 feature films(all on video) and 2,000 books, mostly fiction,
>are meant todepict the image of law and lawyers in popular culture.  I am in
>charge of the collection  The items in the collection feature an attorney as a
>principal character, contain courtroom scenes, or address the subject of
>justice and the legal system.  In many instances, they are written by a
>member of the legal profession.
>At present, I am focusing on video and works of fiction.
>In the course of determining which film titles would be relevant, I have
>amassed data on aproximately 2,500 law-related movies.  I would be most

>films up to 1920.
