Subject: '80's Video

Attention '80's freaks- I'm looking for VHS copies of
vintage '80's TV commercials and movie trailers.
Anyone know where I can find these or who might
have them?

Go ahead...make my day!

Oh God...I would try to help you out here, but I'm flat broke till the end of summer (since I have to pay 1/2 of summer school and save up for books for next semester). :( But...just to let you know...my parents taped a lot of stuff in the '80s, and some of that stuff is chock-full of great classic commercials/movie trailers. Like, when they recorded "Saturday Night Fever" on ABC in 1983/1984, they left in the commercials, including a trailer for the movie "The Falcon and the Snowman". And I'm sure there are a lot of commercials/trailers in the videocassette that Mom recorded the full "Hollywood Wives" miniseries on (btw--I watched that--wasn't that the most melodramatic soapfest you've ever seen?). There are others--like there's a trailer for this movie Fred Dryer starred in (I remember seeing him in "Hunter"); I think it's called "Death Before Dishonor" or something like that. Damn--and I have to be flat broke now!!! So sorry--I'll try to scrimp up enough money to send you some dubs of those commercials, if you're interested! Just e-mail me! (p.s.: I can understand why you want those commercials/trailers--they're way more interesting than today's commercials--heck, a local company (Arrow Upholstery) still uses the same commercials they used in the mid '80s!)
