As an actor he's an expert at being a face in the crowd. His son Abbie is a respected New York heart surgeon who's always felt like a bit player in his father's life. When Abbie suffers a mild heart attack, he decides it's time to mend family ties...or break them altogether.

Re: MVD Rewind Collection -- New Releases

Speaking of MVD, there is a 50% off sale on them going on at Family Video. MVD has more or less told me they don't plan discounting their Rewind Collections beyond that level.

Re: MVD Rewind Collection -- New Releases

Didn't take them long to get into the studio catalogs, it seems, even if most of those are lesser titles with what appear to be recycled supplements. Maybe they'll work their way up to some real gems, assuming there's any left?

Re: MVD Rewind Collection -- New Releases

FYI, only Bright Lights is the Rewind Collection, the others are in their Marquee Collection which aren't the full on "collector's edition" like the Rewind Collection
I've been keeping a list of all the various collection titles on Wikipedia
