Just as an additional comment about these programs - they are unique,
family-oriented feature length movies but have not been distributed in
theaters. They are not edited or modified versions of theatrical released
features. Also, libraries can purchase them with pub. perform. rights.
They are dist. by the company by telemarketing and also by MicroMarketing
(also telemarketers). I'm not sure if you can purchase them from B& T or
Ingram. Jim Scholtz.
