Wish I did! I always look through the bargain movies at Wal-Mart and check out the classic shelves at our local video rental stores.

Occasionally you'll run across one, but they seem to be pretty scarce.

If you find a source let me know.

Check out The Black Robe - early Jesuit adventures in the new world. Might have to cover the kids eyes in a couple of brief scenes.

Stormcatcher,

Amazon and Ebay carry a lot of titles, keeping in mind a lot of titles have never been reprinted in VHS or especially DVD................I've been hoping to find "Northwest Passage" with Specer Tracy in DVD, but only in found it in European format.

I have found "Drums along the Mohawk" and the "Fighting Kentuckians" and some of the older visions of "Last of the Mohicans" and "The Deer Slayer"

Good luck and keep us apprized of your efforts

So How come I can't find a copy of NW Passage in ANY format?....My copy I taped off the TV about 15 years ago has just about worn out....If there is a dvd version suitable for UK use,I'd be pathetically grateful to know more......

I don't know if you live near a mall or somewhere like that where they sell movies. Not a block buster or movie rental place but somewhere where they only sell them. I found that I am able to give them a title and they have found whatevere I have asked them.

I watched "Many Rivers to Cross" and the " Big Sky" on youtube
These movies seem to come and go online. You just have to keep checking.
I have a copy of " The Howards of Virginia", which was a gift from my son.

If you liked The Fighting Kentuckian, you'll love Allegheny Uprising with John Wayne.
