Better that Robbie Williams or Pearl Jam?

BTW - #7 from last week:

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these actors:
Roberto Benigni, Kate Capshaw, Johnny Depp, Hugh Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Lee, Rebecca Pidgeon, Meg Ryan

All have played booksellers in the movies! For completists, the films are Life Is Beautiful, The Love Letter, The Ninth Gate, Notting Hill, 84 Charing Cross Road, Hugo, State and Main, and You've Got Mail. Why are all these movies post-1985? Didn't movie bookstores exist before the mid-'80s? (Don't say Dorothy Malone in The Big Sleep. She didn't own the shop, she was just filling in. Ditto for Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.)
