May 11, 2010 - The Other Man - found?

I ran across this by contacting a poster on imdb for the movie, The Other Man, which seems to have quite a following among female fans of Roy Thinnes. You can find a DVD-R version of this film by going to this site:

http://www.robertsvideos.com

Just type in The Other Man in the search box and there is a listing for the video for 19.95.

I am not in any way endorsing this listing, but providing information for those fans out there who are seeking some kind of recording of this film, which, by the way, I have never seen. This is kind of stop-gap measure until we can collectively convince NBC Universal, the owners of the original film, to release it on DVD. If enough people write, perhaps they would consider a limited DVD release.

Best wishes,

Jim

PS Still working on the financing for The Invaders film. Trying other avenues while waiting for the first. Keep in mind that in the world of film financing, regardless of how well connected you are, it can take upwards of decades to get from script to screen. That's the nature of the game and I've been in it since 1978 and have been seeking funding for The Invaders in particular since 2001.
