Hi Folks,

I have a professor interested in obtaining a copy of a rare film, The Rehearsal (1974) by Jules Dassin.

It appears that this film wasnít released to cinemas- only to some European film festivals (eg. Berlin)- making it pretty rare. I may be able to purchase a copy of the film from the BFIís National Archive depending on rights clearance (~$400).

Does anyone have any other suggestions of where to purchase rare films?

I tried the sites listed on http://www.classicmovies.org/links/rarevideo.htm for fun but didnít find the film.

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.
