Dear Marc

Thanks for mentioning our film (otherwise I would have had to!). Just a
note: we reduced the price of YOU GOT TO MOVE by $100 last year. Now its
$390. Our web site will be up-dated later this month.

of this old (1981?) Bill Moyers Journal program about Myles Horton and the
Highlander School. I inquired at the Highlander Center, but the only person
available until next week has not been there long enough to know about this
title. Any leads as to whether this is still available for sale and from
whom will be appreciated.
