    Hi,

    Hope someone can help me as this is driving me mad.
    I am trying to get hold of a copy of By Dawns Early Light, a 90's movie about Nuclear War (cheerful I know). I have only seen half the movie on TV 5 years ago, and would love to get a copy on either VHS or even better DVD. I have had a look on Amazon and other retailers, but no one has anything other than an NTSC VHS copy in stock.

    Anyone heard or seen of this for sale in PAL or on DVD (don't worry about the region).

    Many thanks in advance.

    It was a TV movie made in 1990 and it's not available anywhere in the world on disc at the moment.
    I'd like a copy myself. I wouldn't be surprised to see it appear from someone like Hollywood or another budget label at some point.


    At the moment though - nothing. Shame. Good movie.

    Used to be available on the Warner label, but now deleted.

    Got this from BlackStar:

    By Dawns Early Light

    Best search through bargain bins at rental outlets or search on ebay for possible auctions

    Thanks, I have placed an order there, and I hope they will be able to find it. You know, the interesting thing about this movie, is that everyone I ask has seen it before and they all say it was a good movie, yet no-one owns it!

    Thanks for all your help.

    Hi,

    I don't suppose you would be interested in lending this to me for a few days?
    I have a Geforce4 with Vivo, so I could do something very very bad and record this onto HDD.

    If you are happy to loan me the tape, please e-mail me on e.svatos@ntlworld.com

    Many thanks, you might just save my sanity!

    I had, and might still have this on tape. (recorded from TV).
    If I do you can have it for the price of postage.

    I remember it being quite an interesting movie.

    I'll have a look up the loft and see if its still there with my other vids.


    Regards

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. In the end, I managed to find a copy from Amazon, specialist video supplier.
    Cost me £30, but it is worth it... I think!

    Anyway, thanks for all your effort. I do appreciate it.

    I've seen this title on DVD in the Music Zone, in their cheapo section. Think it was about 7.99. Nearly bought it myself, I remember seeing five minutes of it on the telly and thought it looked good.

    Desticado - even if you're giving it away, you should really do it in the classifieds.
    And APPRIA40WR, your FS post should also really be in the classifieds forum also, please.
    Lets keep trading in the right place.

    The Quiet Earth

    It's about a guy that kills himself and wakes up to find he's still alive but everyone else is dead.

    If I was starting a thread to give it away then I would put it in the trading section. But since this was a conversation that started off asking about if the disk was available (and still primarily is) it seemed most appropiate to keep it here within the conversation. I know they keep changing but I think I know the trading rules Spectre.

    It is a good film but im getting rid of ALL my vhs tapes.

    I like the idea of the 'accidental' war due to the automated responses by the computers... ring any bells with Terminator... Matrix...

    no problem, I'll stick it in the bin.

    Trying to remember the name of the lead actor in this film. Has one of those really phoney sounding names, was in Red Dawn as well. Though much older, this used to be one of my faveourite films as a kid. Worth checking out, think it has a very young patrixk Swayze in it too.

    regards

    I think you are right, Powers Boothe was in fact the main lead actor, but Rip Torn (Not sure of spelling) was also in it :)
