> Hope folks don't mind the pitch, but I just wanted to

> consented to letting his films be returned to regular
> distribution, at Canyon Cinema, which he co-founded as
> a distributor back in 1966. Although the prints are
> still in the process of being added to Canyon, I think
> they should be ready to take bookings by next week (as
> soon as I get them the descriptions and whatnot).
> Nelson‚s share of the money earned from rentals will
> go entirely to maintain the prints and make more of
> his films available.
