Years pass and successive police chiefs hold office. The mysterious unsolved crimes have been swept under the carpet. But in 1962, the day of reckoning draws near as Billy Dee Williams (Tyler Watts) Delano's first black police chief, becomes intrigued by the old case and the dark shadow it casts over the town. Despite threats, he perseveres to ultimately uncover the scandalous secret behind the forty year old mystery.

Anyone know how to get a hold of one of these? The DVD is only availble in Region 0 PAL format...which apparently won't play on US Region 1.

Clark, the A/V Sources area is where we discuss audio and video source components (LD, CD, and DVD players, turntables, VHS/S-VHS/D-VHS machines, etc.). Ask about non-Region I DVDs in this location. JB

You can play it if you purchase a dvd player that will convert PAL to NTSC, the US television system. Region "0" means it will play anywhere, but a player that will convert will also play discs from any region if you set it up that way. http://www.hkflix.com/hardware/ I've found to be reliable.

Well, I got my DVD. I can't tell if it is PAL format...this was the only one that had a different cover than the other ones on ebay (which were all PAL format).

It is:

Regsion Code: All
Format: DVD 5

It plays on my computer, but my Samsung DVD (DVD-M301) gives a televsion error when I try put the DVD in.
