Red Betsy on DVD ?
14 June 2005 | by Celluloid_ImageSee all my reviews

I haven't seen the film, and I don't personally know of anyone who has even heard of it. Was it only shown in Wisconsin theaters for a limited time? I certainly don't remember it ever running at any theater in the NW, but I may have just missed it. Has it ever been shown on cable or network TV? I really enjoyed Alison Elliott's performance in Spitfire Grill, and I would really like to see this film. Does anyone has any information regarding a DVD release date. I have written to Lang Films, but not received a reply yet. Any information (or even rumors) are much appreciated. I would like to write more substantial comments, but it's difficult since I haven't yet seen the film yet.

Thanks, Gregg Humphrey
