Of course I have a couple: Party Girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufltS3vpJoQ (Oh, the 90s)The Prince and Me: http://youtu.be/jGl-HbApYUw?t=1m27s (Some of the hottest handling since Daniel Day Lewis and Michelle Pfeiffer in that carriage in The Age of Innocence)
Alas, this movie is fictional: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZHoHaAYHq8

The Paper Chase. When Hart breaks into the Harvard Law Library in order to look at Kingsfield's notes from when he was a Harvard Law student.
The Truman Show: "I like your pin. I was wondering that myself."Which makes me wonder: what books do you put in a secret totalitarian society built for one?
Who Moved My Cheese?
Even though I know it's not why the IBM computer is called Watson, that coincidence of her name makes me chuckle.How did I not know until right now today that Nora Ephron's parents were the screenwriters on Desk Set? http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article.html?isPreview=&id=99382|90494&name=Desk-Set
