> I am trying to help an author figure out how to get permissions to use

> the stills themselves, and permission information. He is working with a
> list of about 25 films, most of which are low budget, rock music horror
> films, some not readily available. It looks to me like many of the
> films he wants were produced in the 1980's. A few are available on video
> or DVD so I am assuming that he needs to make the stills himself(?). Then
> the question of permissions. Does anyone really have to give permission
> to use "Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare" for anything? I suppose so....
> Some of the other titles:
> BLACK ROSES
> TERROR ON TOUR
> TRICK OR TREAT
> PAGANINI HORROR
> etc. You get the picture. Again, I think his interest is in films from
> the 1980's (some of these same titles were used 70 or 80 years earlier
> for quite different sorts of films, to say the least).
> I can get the entire list from him, with dates, or put him directly in
> touch with one of you folks who might want to advise him.
> Thanks for any advice you can offer.
