Thinking of Sterile Cuckoo made me think of another Paramount Picture with
Liza Minelli made the same year also stars Albert Finney, "Charlie
Bubbles," Never on VHS and not on DVD. I wrote to Paramount and asked
about a few older films status as to when they would be released on DVD.
I recieved no response.

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.
