Well, it's supposed to be out of print, anyway.  What this might be is a
bootleg or an independently manufactured video of a film that is not
legally in print (which is a nice way to say the same thing).  I'd be
very interested to hear from anyone who actually orders one.  Let me
know if it's actually available and whether it's a clean copy or not.
Responses off-list would be appreciated.

Here's getting to the bottom of this mystery.

Is that the one with the 'happy' ending (the crooks get off, Bonario
gets Celia, etc.)?
