Dear Julie Grossman,
UCLA is well worth a visit, as is the library of the Motion Picture Academy
in Beverly Hills and USC has some scripts, etc.Prof. Steve Mamber at UCLA
is a film noir maven who has done some work putting together digital
versions with notes for Criterion laserdiscs. He can give you some guidance
and is a super computer buff -- he taught me Turbo Pascal for a class and I
am a programming averse mac user.
All good wishes,
Larry Jarvik
