    Alan Rudolph's TROUBLE IN MIND is owned by MGM; Columbia only has TV rights to the film through their deal with the former Nelson Entertainment.

    Mark, interesting. I thought my old VHS copy was MGM.

    Someone corrected me here though and said it was Columbia/Tri-Star, which is how IMDB and Amazon list it.

    Thank you

    Death Race 2000 is out on DVD in the Roger Corman line. Can't comment on the quality.

    My wishlist:

    The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane (MGM?)

    Why Shoot the Teacher (unknown)

    Jonathan Livingston Seagull (Paramount)

    CBS-TV:

    FEAR ON TRIAL

    PARAMOUNT:

    SOME KIND OF HERO

    WARNER BROS.:

    THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY

    THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE

    THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER
