    BACKFIRE (1987) the rights have gone back to Showtime.

    BAD INFLUENCE (1990) is MGM.

    LADY BEWARE (1987) Unknown....used to be Artisan but it's out of print now.

    MY NEW GUN (1992) Unknown...used to be Columbia but the rights have expired. It's an IRS film so whoever they release their stuff through will probably get it.

    PRICELESS BEAUTY aka LOVE DREAM (1988) Unknown....another film that the video rights have expired.

    THE ONLY THRILL (1998) it looks like Artisan but they have put the VHS on moratorium. Perhaps it was a 5 year license.

    OLDEST LIVING CONFEDERATE WIDOW TELLS ALL (MiniSeries) (1994) is probably Paramount since it appears it is owned by CBS Television.

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks ever so much for your help with this. I've put in emails to Artisan who said that hey don't own them anymore but may try to reaquire them. It's all really complicated this rights stuff isn't it?
