This is romance: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)

The now quaint story of interracial marriage that challenges the principles of liberal whites and blacks alike in 1967. Even then it was regarded as too tepid by those who had disdain for Stanley Kramer's message movie. However imperfect, this film did have an effect on American culture and afforded Spencer Tracy one last, heartfelt moment on screen opposite Katharine Hepburn, reminding us of his acting prowess and that human beings do not just love when they are young or it is convenient for them to do so.
Instantwatcher, a free service that describes itself as helping "you find good streaming titles from Netflix" is updated regularly with new info about the burgeoning streaming films now found on the site of the changing DVD company. There are two levels of membership, though if, like me, you just want to know when new (meaning old and rare for me) stuff appears there, the basic membership seems sufficient. See more here:

I found that the feature allowing you to look at available films by the year of release is enough to make me salivate discreetly. You may wish to see more here:
