| sorry, pal, Sony's asleep
Message to the first of the other two reviewers:

Sony doesn't listen to ardent fans. It doesn't give one little flying f**k to our pitiful cries for the re-issuing of beloved film. It cares not one little damn. Neither does any of the other big names. Neither does the network executives. It's all about the quest for your dollar in the most mainstream way. They catch more fish when we're all in the same barrel.

No use hoping, we will never see our old favorites restored to the full glory that is DVD. Just the new stuff, for the bleating sheep out there, ooh Spiderman 2, ooh Iron Man 3, ooh screw that stupid sh** 4...

Look, they pulled the plug on THE SECRET CIRCLE and threw away the key. And if they could do that, what chance does THE DREAM MERCHANTS have?

I saw it years ago when it was still new. I just vaguely remember that Morgan Fairchild was in it. The only real scene I remember is that of a (director?) pleading: "If I don't see it down here, how is anybody gonna see it up there?"*, referring to an actress's indifference to the camera.

But we are well into the next century now, and even if my life depended on getting to see this one more time... (give a long, world-weary sigh, wipe away a tear, go make some coffee)

Hang on to your dear memories, my friend!

*perhaps not the exact words, but something to that effect.
