  1. There’s an old Lifetime movie from 1995 called Body Language starring Heather Locklear. You can view it on Youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPUGa09wpZ8

    She carries a red ringed binder that I spotted at 5:08 (when she’s taking it out of her briefcase) then from 53:27 – 53:40 (in her hands and on desk) then from 54:15-16 (in her hands)

  2. At least two planners are in Clear and Present danger about halfway through- a tapestry one and a pocket sized one. One was during the computer hack scene.

  3. There is an episode of the British TV programme Dalziel and Pascoe where an evil person burns a Filofax to hide the evidence. You see it a few times first.
    Brilliant list though. 😀

  6. Since the title had films in it, I was worried Supernatural would go unlisted. So glad to see it there.

  8. Oceans Eleven (Birkin carries an A5 in red or pink for almost the entire movie).
    And let’s not forget the first (original! – not that terrible American remake) film of the Millenium trilogy where Erica pops out her Filofax to pay the taxi driver!

  9. Wow – kudos for all the hard work and time you put in compiling this. 27 Dresses is my favorite ‘filofax’ movie, but I need to check out ‘New Best Friend’ about solving a murder using the victim’s filo. I need to bookmark this post. Thank you!

  10. Working Girl is another movie where a filofax features very centrally in the story. So there was a movie ‘Filofax’ where the lead character is a planner-nerd who uses a 30mm Winchester.

  11. Isn’t there a filofax on “Dead Like Me” tv show? I thought one of the character’s was using what looked like a malden … or something a little older.

  14. Oh Janet, Thanks for this!
    Somethings’ Gotta Give is one of my all time favorites and Filofaxes are seen all over the beach house. I like how she even has a smaller pale blue one on her nightstand.
    Gene Simmons of KISS is also an avid Filofax user. On an episode of his family’s reality show “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels” he is seen going thru his schedule in his Filofax. That was pretty cool to watch.
