hey, kris-
we tried to purchase "In Darkest HOllywood" in 1995, but with no success.
we listed NightINGgale Productions as the vendor, but no address is listed.
maybe that's why we never got it!!! if you find it, let me know.

also, for the folklore class, i don't know why this popped into my head
(and let's remember this is FRIDAY...) but how about "Melvin and Howard"?
