Genre Index for BEYOND CASABLANCA II

A friend of mine requested an index of the films in BEYOND CASABLANCA II organized by genre. The book has three index sections already, with listings by year, director, and notable cast, but I think that a genre index can also be a handy tool, especially if you're in the mood for a particular kind of film. That said, genre indexing can be tricky, since many movies straddle multiple categories. In order to create the simplest index possible, I'm here listing each of the 101 films in BEYOND CASABLANCA II once, under the genre grouping that seems the most indicative of its content. I have also tried to keep subgenres to a minimum. I hope that people will find it useful!
