This is one of the LEGENDARY american film theater titles. There are some
out there but I can not imagine anyone would loan it as it is VERY RARE AND
VERY VALUABLE. Norman at Video Oyster sometimes has copies but I suspect the
run close to a $1000. There are rumblings that Warner Bros may release these
sometime but don't hold your breath
