    THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE
    =======================

    Premiering Sept. 10 on DVD

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    Culver City, Calif. (July 1, 2002) -The unbelievably odd world of
    health-craze huckster and Corn Flakes inventor John Harvey Kellogg comes
    to life with the talents of Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins ("The Silence
    of the Lambs") and two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick ("Brighton
    Beach Memoirs," "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying") in
    THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE. The comedy from director Alan Parker makes its
    first-ever appearance on DVD Sept. 10 from Columbia TriStar Home
    Entertainment.
    Written by Parker (director of "Mississippi Burning" and the
    Oscar-winning "Midnight Express") from the novel by T. Coraghessan
    Boyle, THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE features an all-star cast led by Hopkins
    and including Dana Carvey ("The Master of Disguise"), John Cusack
    ("America's Sweethearts") and Lara Flynn Boyle ("Men in Black II").
    They all populate the more-than-slightly crazy Battle Creek
    Sanitarium, a combination spa-hospital-and-grand-hotel that is the
    brainchild of the wacky Kellogg. Into the fray come the sweet-spirited
    Eleanor, played by Bridget Fonda ("Single White Female"), and her
    devoted husband Will (Broderick). What they don't realize is that their
    efforts to improve their health will become a comedic nightmare of
    ill-timed sexual temptations, mechanical contraptions that would put
    Rube Goldberg to shame, and highly questionable dietary "breakthroughs."
    THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE: Columbia Pictures and Beacon Present a Dirty
    Hands Production. Also starring Michael Lerner. Executive Producers Rom
    Rosenberg and Marc Abraham. Produced by Alan Parker, Armyan Bernstein
    and Robert F. Colesberry. Written and Directed by Alan Parker.

    It was so nice of them to "digitally master" half the picture for us.

    What the hell is going through the minds of the people at Columbia TriStar?
    Really, I want to know. I'm dying of curiousity here.
