By coincidence, I just came across this today: a hypertextual analysis
of the 'You were meant for me sequence from Singing in the Rain:

Adrian Miles who did this has written about using Storyspace for film

Bob Stein's now defunct Night Kitchen produced a work on the making of
Robert Gardner's Dead Birds using TK3, the ancestor of Sophie (a project
now hosted by the Institute for the Future of the Book) which operated
like a multimedia CD-ROM, including film clips, etc.. But I'm not sure
how you would now go about finding a copy of that: you might contact the
Sophie team at IFB and see if they have anything in their archives:
