Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
You are bidding on an exceptionally rare 'For Your Consideration' VHS screener copy Box Set for the film DEAD MAN WALKING, originally released in 1995 by Gramercy Pictures. The Box Set Includes:
- a "Special Academy Screening Copy" of the film on VHS
- a cassette single (still sealed) featuring three songs from the soundtrack release
- a letter dated December 6th, 1995 from Gramercy President Russell Schwartz which briefly discusses both the film and the Box Set (does NOT contain an original signature)
- a list of theatrical screenings for Academy members
- a two piece, handmade wooden storage box
The idea behind this item was to garner attention from Academy members for potential Oscar nominations. As of the writing of the letter, the film wasn't scheduled to be released into theaters until the very end of December- and then only in New York and Los Angeles (general release was early the following year). In addition to being able to view the VHS copy, Academy members were invited to attend any of numerous screenings in December and January.
Overall everything is in very good (though certainly not brand new) condition. There are a few minor dings and marks on the wooden box, the cardboard VHS sleeve has some marks along the edges, and the paper the letters are printed on have aged a bit as far as their color goes. That being said, this is all to be expected from something that's 18 years old. The VHS tape has not been tested as I do not have a VCR to play it on, however anyone who purchases this is doing so for the uniqueness of the overall package as opposed to just wanting to see the movie on a VHS format.
I only have one set of these, so once it sells that's it. I won't be offering them again.
PLEASE NOTE: due to the common availability of duplication hardware/software, absolutely no returns/refunds on any digital/magnetic media UNLESS there's a verifiable problem.
Be sure to check out my other auctions for some rare items and pop culture memorabilia, and e-mail me with any questions. Also PLEASE DISREGARD the automated shipping costs eBay inserts. Winner will be notified of the total after auction's end.
If you have less than 10 positive feedbacks, payment will be Paypal ONLY!! No exceptions.
