Subject: 	Hotel on DVD in US / Gilligan's Island "The Producers" also 
out on DVD

Mike Figgis's film, about a group of actors making a film of The Duchess 
of Malfi in Venice, Italy, is now out on DVD in the U.S.  It was release 
din the UK sometime but has been out of print there for the past two 
years.  Like Figgis's Time Code, much of the film shows split screens. 
I taught it last spring and several students wanted to buy, saying it 
was the weirdest film they'd ever seen.

The Gilligan's Island episode involving Hamlet, "The Producers," is also 
out on DVD (third season).
