Bear in mind, though, that rentals represent the portion of gross
boxoffice sales that goes from exhibitors to distributors.  In most
cases, that means roughly 50% of the total b.o. take.  So "The Robe" is,
in the terms that "Entertainment Weekly" reports each Monday evening, the
first $20-million picture.
