            i think so, because Vestron only released them for Video Rental. (as far I know). Most of those old vestron tittles i got are from my grand parents videostore , before they sold everything, i managed to get them.


            here are almost all my vestron video films i own

                yes , I start buying forgein tittles that aren't released in belgium by Vestron.
                A prayer for the dying is UK version (there is also a print from vestron Netherlands but never released in Belgium, due copyrights)
                Heart of Midnight (released in Belgium by Warner Home Video)
                Salvador (released in Belgium by Cic video)
                I also got a few from the USA , I buyed on Ebay, but the problem is I don't know how many Vestron titels there are , and the most of the films there are been re releasd by another company.

                  Nice.

                  Here's a little something from my library:

                  Despite the cover being a reprint, the videotape is from 1982.

                      Sorry about that.
                      The videotape is the original 1982 20th Century Fox Video print of Chariots of Fire.

                        The cover with all the running men ?
                        And could it be that it is CBS/FOX video ?

                          How did you...?
                          Err...okay, the label is CBS/FOX, but the tape really isn't.
                          You see, the shopkeepers always like to put newer labels on old as heck tapes.

                            it's difficult to find on vhs , certanley if you search the old rental one, in most stores they don't have a copie anymore . It's released in the good old days that you had a copie of every titel , now you go to a videostore, & you will see for example 20 copies of (let us say) Rambo part 455, & a few other populair films, but they don't buy everything anymore . This is what the Big chain videostores are like

                              I've seen the rental version a few times.
                              And yes, that is very true.

                                I know of multiple mom and pop stores in my area. I was able to find many old prints of tapes. I was able to get Cool as Ice from here along with old prints of the first three Alien films. Chained ones have too many copies of modern films, which is what I hate. In one town when the mom and pop store went out of business Blockbuster doubled their prices to six dollars. These days my mom just buys the movies.

                                    CBS/Fox started in 1983 with the 1983 prints of films like Star Wars. Sometimes these would be packaged in big box Fox tapes. I do have an original Magnetic 1980 print of My Bodyguard, but The Deep wins.

                                        Where I live there's still 1 old videostore , who's selling his Vhs.
                                        When my grand parents quit, it was a big chain videostore that buyed the complete stock, & moved 150 m further for the "new" store.


                                        I just took this one this is a part of my Rca Columbia collection , the small original rental boxes !
                                        do you remember some of those ?
