Dear James,
Taking selfish advantage of your offer!  I have to do programe notes on Un
Taxi Mauve (The Purple Taxi) directed by Yves Boisset, released in 1977 for
a film series.  I have been unable to come up with any reviews of this
film. Help would be appreciated.
>So I write today to tell you of a wonderful find. I recieved the
>"MOTION PICTURE GUIDE" CD-ROM this morning and am really pleased.
>It's got everything (I swear) from 1927-1993. It's based on a twenty
>volume film refence work. Each of the 35,000 films has extensive
>cast and crew, and a short to massive synopsis. Lots of trivia,
>all kinds of info. The interface is a little clunky and the copying
>commands are weird, there's no pictures and sound, but loads of
>information. It blows MICROSOFT CINEMANIA out of the water and if
>you've wondered what to use you CD-ROM for, this may be it :-)
>One disk works on MAC and PC and it takes up about 1meg of hard
>disk space.
>And since I'm such a nice guy and want to support this product,
>I'll post information on whatever obscure movie you'd like to
>find out about. Understand, TV movies aren't listed, and I'm sure
>if you try, you'll be able to stump the guide, but hey, it's still
>pretty cool.
>Anyone been dying for a resume of their favorite writer, makeup artist
>or set decorator?
