    Presenting Lily Mars
    Dangerous When Wet
    The Opposite Sex (the musical remake of The Woman)

    All of the above I sold on Ebay for about $20 each since they are not yet on DVD and hard to find.

    I also sold my Baby Face/Night Nurse on laser disc, but I will not be selling my 2 Pre-Code Forbidden Hollywood laser disc collections, since it will be a long time until they all make it to DVD. (Although I understand the restored Baby Face is scheduled for release on DVD next year.)
