The Karen Green Collection.


List-omania: Librarians in Film!


Due to my overwhelmingly obsessive nature, the collection is ordered chronologically from the earliest to the most recent, with the films within each year ordered alphabetically. Lord knows if there were a way to order them within year by month of release, I would do it.


| 1910s | 1920s | 1930s | 1940s | 1950s | 1960s | 1970s | 1980s | 1990s | 2000s |
