I used to work for the director of that film, Jon Glascoe. Contact the production company: www.cypressfilms.com. I'm sure they'd be HAPPY to sell you a copy. Gena Z.

Whoa! Thank you Randy, and everyone, for such fast responses.
I do believe that Randy has nailed the title; I'm checking

list. I notice that Amazon currently has a few used copies on
VHS.... Jeff
