    Ryan,
 
    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
    channels--without having to use FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
 
    What reminded me of it is that SCREEN-L FILELIST has two databases of
    recent film releases on it--one for 1990 and one for
    1991--listing producer, director, scriptwriter, cast, release date.
 
    Each is a "comma-delimited" text file that is ready to be sucked into
    most any database program.  They're titled:
 
    FILM90 DAT
    FILM91 DAT
 
    To request that these files be sent to you, send e-mail to
    [log in to unmask] (LISTSERV@UA1VM for BITNET) with the following
    command on the first line of your e-mail:
 
    GET FILM90 DAT SCREEN-L
 
    Send another, similar message in order to get FILM91 DAT.
 
    Please note:  these requests go to the LISTSERV address, not to the
    SCREEN-L address.
