Your uncle has good taste but only a fair memory.

 

The film is titled 84 Charing Cross Road. It is based on a book written by the female character in the film - Helene Hanff (a "real" person and prolific author.)

 

The film is in color and not that old (1986). You can read more about the film here -

And if you are interested, search Amazon for books by Helene Hanff to get a complete bibliography. She has written many interesting titles about her life in NYC and her love of books. She even had a cameo in one or two Woody Allen films too.
