The worst I have here is SQUIRM, a gentle southern low-budget one about
electrified worms that take revenge on the owner of a worm farm, then
there goes the neighborhood.  Too bad To Kill a Mockingbird wasn't done
on the CED format instead of this stinker.  Don't get me wrong, it's so
bad it's really a hoot to watch.  Don't forget, folks, the Selectavision
system plays well on your vintage television----any of the four Marx
Brothers movies on a saturday afternoon.   CRAIG   Greenbelt, Maryland

You can find the $25 LaserFilm players by going to the web site 
and typing VIDEO DISC (as two words) in the search box. Their description 
of the players uses CLV and CAV Philips LaserDisc terminology, but remember 
that these units will only play the thin photographic LaserFilm discs, not 
CED or regular LD. No media is included with the players, and I've never 
come across any LaserFilm discs, though I've made little effort to find any.

other things....
