Eyes of Laura Mars (script by John Carpenter)
Sam Fuller's Park Row (I think)
The Night they Raided Minsky's
BBCTV has just finished running a mini-series set in a photo library. It
was written by  Stephen Poliakoff, and was all about the power of images
etc to show us ourselves in the light of family history etc. It was - like
so much of Poliakoff's work - a mixture of the really interesting and the
profoundly dumb.
