I think that FORTRAN text, titled "Understanding FORTRAN," might have just been a prop for the movie, and not a real book. I did some searching on Amazon for FORTRAN books published around the late 50's and early 60's and didn't find anything. I did find (and buy) a book titled "Understanding FORTRAN" published in 1968, but it has a totally different cover than the book in the movie, that's why I think the book shown in the movie was a prop.

I agree, great movie.
