Hi all--
I just called VCI, which is located here in Tulsa. Their rights to the
film have expired, so back to square one. Any DVDs by VCI on this title
found on the secondary market would certainly be legal copies though.

Best,

I asked this same question back in January 2007 on this list. What I
found out was someone found a DVD copy on Amazon. But, I could not find
out if it was a legal copy or not. There is also an OCLC number
assigned (49301590) that was for the DVD version by VCI Entertainment in
2002. Patti Berky gave me this information. I never did find a copy of
it on DVD.

I was unable to find a used VHS copy of this film. One good thing is we
have a VHS that we have had for years and it is a Hilltop Co film from
1983 out of Los Angeles, CA that is all the information I have on this
film. If you happen to find any place that sells it. Please let me
know. Thank you and Good Luck.

Hello Video Gang !!!

After wasting a bunch of time, this morning, searching for this video
title ("Black Like Me"), I decided this is a job for Superrrrrr
videolistservvvvvv (in a deep, echoing voice), the video library super
hero!!! Anyone have a source for this video? I had two leads, The
Hilltop Company, and Xenon Home Video, but couldn't locate any contact
info.

Help me, Help me, Superrrrr Videolistservvvvv!!

Thanks,
