Hello Videolib,

I have a question that I hope the collective wisdom and experience of
this group can help answer. Our Film Services manager and I have been
unable to locate the companies that have the distribution rights and can
provide educational rentals for the following westerns. She has
exhausted all of her regular sources. One of our Film / Video School
faculty is teaching a History of the Western course this semester and
wanted to rent 35mm films to show to his class. He is most interested
in "Johnny Guitar", directed by Nicholas Ray.

Can anyone help and point us in the direction we need to go? Or is this
a hopeless endeavor?

JOHNNY GUITAR - Nicholas Ray (1954) on 35mm
THE SEARCHERS - John Ford (1956) on 35mm
THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE- John Ford (1962) on 35mm
SEVEN MEN FROM NOW - Budd Boetticher (1959)
MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER - Robert Altman (1971)
RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY - Sam Peckinpah (1969)

Thank you so much!
Karen Baxter

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
