Dr Goetz recommends that Nora read his book, "The Art of Ignoring Your Child". She informs him that she already has it, and shows him her collection of psychology books. A closeup of the shelf reveals the Goetz volume, plus several other books that apparently were made up by the prop department, except for two real books: the scholarly journal "Psychological Monographs" for 1954 (multiple issues from that year bound together as you would find in a library, complete with a real library call-number on the spine); and a copy of the novel "Ruth Fielding Down in Dixie" by Alice B. Emerson (New York: Cupples & Leon, 1916), a strange choice indeed for a shelf otherwise holding mostly self-help books on child psychology. See more
