Your note gives me the opportunity to remind folks of the offerings on
SCREEN-L FILELIST. A FILELIST is an archive of text files that
BITNET/Internet users may retrieve through normal e-mail

recent film releases on it--one for 1990 and one for

GET FILM90 DAT SCREEN-L

Please note: these requests go to the LISTSERV address, not to the
