Film and TV Studies Discussion List <[log in to unmask]>

Dear Jeremy,
        Congratulations on this very successful forum.
        Just a clarification about what is acceptable to post.  I sent this
post in to the Kuchar query, but so far as I know, it never was sent out,
judging from the fact I never got it from the list.  Was there something
counter regulations about it? I did mention an independently published film
source that people might never hear of otherwise.

Re: Kuchar Bros.
Hope this information isn't redundant.  Are you familiar with George and
Mike Kuchar's *Reflections from a Cinematic Cesspool*? It is
autobiographical book with an extensive filmography and is a good resource
on the work in any case, as well as being entertaining.
        Should David Conner's suggestions not lead to the sources, you
could probably find distribution information in that book and if not, then
from the Kuchar brothers themselves.  George is in the San Francisco
The order info for *Reflections* is Zanja Press PO Box 11813 Berkeley CA
