Item specifics

Good: An item in used but good condition. May have minor damage to jewel case including scuffs or cracks, ... Read moreabout the condition
Rating: --
Format: NTSC (US, Canada) Genre: Comedy
Sub-Genre: Teen

ITEM: This is a RARE VHS/NTSC/SP (that means that it will play in US VCRs and that it is recorded in the 2 hour/standard play mode - and BEWARE of the inferior LP/long play/4-hour mode Goodtimes version of this title with the alternate cover - this ain't that!) factory ORIGINAL pre-record (that means it's NOT a bootleg) on the RCA Columbia Pictures Home Video label (item # 60759) of Poison Ivy, a 1985 NBC TV-movie (TVM) about summer camp hijinks starring Michael J. Fox, Nancy McKeon, Robert Klein, Adam Baldwin, Caren Kaye and Cary Guffey (Jason Bateman is mistakenly credited on the cover for some reason); filmed in Rutledge, GA. In color, not rated (but suitable for general audiences), running time 96 minutes. From the back of the box: "If you're itchin' for excitement and a rash of adventure - the hilarious comedy POISON IVY is going to grow on you! Michael J. Fox and Nancy McKeon star in this zany adventure about an unpredictable summer camp full of hijinks and romance for campers and counselors alike. There's the predictable swimming, boating and nature hikes at Camp Pinewood, but the 'fun' really begins when pretty assistant nurse Rhonda (McKeon) arrives and catches the eye of heartthrob staff counselor Baxter (Fox). Between bumbling camp director Big Irv (Robert Klein), the shenanigans of his five mischievious charges, and the amorous advances of Big Irv's wife, Margo (Caren Caye [sic]), he can't get close enough to the nurse to play doctor. Will Baxter get his girl before Camp Pinewood gets the best of him? It's the campy comedy POISON IVY, where the fun is contagious and the laughs are breaking out all over." This telefilm is NOT ON DVD and seems very unlikely to turn up in the digital format anytime soon (if ever), so if you’re a fan of Michael J. Fox, Nancy McKeon, or of '80s teen comedies in general, then please be sure to check out this auction.

CONDITION: The slipsleeve display box has been cut to fit into a black plastic clamshell, but is otherwise in good condition, with just a little minor fading to the title-spine and some minor wear to the edges and corners, a slight sticker-scar in the middle of the pictures on the back cover (please see the scans above and below); the tape itself - but for some rolling lines and brief sound dropouts at the 4m 10s mark - plays great (I have watched it all the way through myself).

AND NOW FOR ALL THE BOILERPLATE (just so we’re clear on terms):

Again, I sell nothing but original pre-records - NO BOOTLEGS WHATSOEVER (unlike some sellers on eBay - you know who you are). All of my tapes (with the exception of new ones still in their original shrinkwrap) have been watched all or most of the way through, by me personally, and thus checked for defects; conditions of packaging are exactly as described for each item. My personal belief as a seller is that honesty is the best policy. I know that as a buyer on eBay (which I was for a long time before I became a seller) that truthfulness is the quality I most appreciate in a seller. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of my items or their condition and I will respond as soon as is humanly possible.

I guarantee my merchandise. If you buy it and then have a problem with it or don’t agree that it’s just as I’ve described it, please contact me. Unless your demands or expectations are just completely unreasonable, more than likely I will take it back and refund your money in full (that is the price of purchase plus initial shipping costs). Like I said, I started out as a buyer on eBay, so I know what I like to expect from sellers and I try my darndest to provide that to my buyers. I also clean my items thoroughly and carefully, removing stickers, wiping away dirt and grime, while preserving the item’s condition.

In accordance with eBay's 'paperless' policy, acceptable forms of payment are now Paypal PERIOD. Do NOT send me a personal check; I don't have time to wait for it to clear the bank and you probably won't appreciate the delay either. Again, do NOT send me a check. Buyer MUST contact seller within THREE (3) DAYS of auction’s end to declare means of payment. Payment MUST be received within TEN (10) DAYS of auction closing or item(s) will be re-listed and negative feedback WILL BE left for the winning bidder. This is how I make my living, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable for me to get a little testy when the money doesn’t show up in a timely fashion. I ALWAYS ship within 48 hours of receiving payment (and, more often than not, in less than 24); the sooner I get the money, the sooner I will ship you your item. (Sorry if the previous sentences come across as rude or peremptory, but experience has taught me that one must be as pellucid as possible in these matters.)

FEEDBACK POLICY: I leave positive feedback for buyers AS SOON AS I am paid. I don’t dangle it or use the threat of negative feedback in any attempts to manipulate buyers. As far as I am concerned, as soon as a buyer pays, he/she has done everything he/she is obliged to do, thank you very much. (Though, of course, I do appreciate having the favor returned in kind once the merchandise has been received and found to be satisfactory.)

PLEASE: Absolutely NO “auction-stacking” will be accepted by this buyer. “Auction-stacking” is when a winning bidder tells me that he/she wants to delay payment because he/she is also bidding on another of my auctions that ends the following week (or the following week…) and he/she wants to save money on s&h. Normally, I would oblige, but I’ve been taken advantage of when I have allowed this in the past. So, please pay for the auctions you win the week you win them - no exceptions. If you have a problem with this policy, then please refrain from bidding on my items.

SHIPPING POLICY: I still offer reduced price Media Mail shipping and handling to all (domestic/US) winning bidders on my auctions - $2.00 for this item. If you need it sooner/quicker, though, I can ship this item via Priority Mail for $6.00. For most buyers outside the U.S., I ship First-Class Mail International (which takes about 7-10 business days), $11.00 for this tape for most countries ($5.50 for Canada). PLEASE NOTE that I cannot insure shipments to foreign countries. If you have any questions, please e-mail me with the specific country of destination and I will give you a specific quote. Multiple items going to the same mailing address can, of course, be combined into one package to save on shipping costs (for example, two tapes going to the same address will probably only cost you an additional $1.00, not counting any additional shipping options).   

Thanks very much for looking and please check out my other auctions. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and, again, I will get back to you just as soon as is humanly possible.
