I haven't been able to find sources for these 2 films. They're both listed
in Facets video rentals, but our preference is to rent them as 16mm films.

"Gimme Shelter" is a 1970 documentary/musical by the Maysles Brothers. It's
about the Rolling Stones' 1969 tour. The production company was Maysles
Films, and it was at one time distributed by 20th Century Fox.

"Salesman" is another 1970 documentary by the Maysles Brothers. It's about
"the daily struggles of a group of Bible salesmen, going door to door from
New Jersey working class neighborhoods to Floridian trailer parks." The
production company was Maysles Films.

Any clues will be most welcome. Thanks in advance.
