Wish List

Here’s a roster of films I’m seeking…some I’ve never seen, others I’ve viewed and want to own.  If anyone is looking to unload some films from their collection and spots one or two titles on my list, let me know (blackdogpressATyahoo.ca).

I prefer the DVD format (Region 1 only) but in a pinch I’ll nab a VHS tape.

And I’m always looking for establishments and individuals who sell good, hard-to-find films, so if you know of any reputable ones, drop them in “Comments” and share ’em with the rest of us.

    I did see a copy of Happy Go Lucky at the movie store the other day, if you’re interested. In the comedy section, I believe.
