It was released only as a rental DVD by Blockbuster. Shade got a terrible distribution deal because of shenanigans at RKO - it deserved better. If you call some local blockbusters they may have it for sale but it has no extras - I recommend getting it from Amazon.com in the US.

This movie never really got the credit it deserves considering the names in it and the script itself.
Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I am a real person. No, you probably won't agree with me.

Jeff - it got a raw deal. It was way better than Confidence and Poolhall Junkies and they got proper distribution and marketing. It's a long story as to why Shade got beaten up and I don't really want to discuss it any more. I learned a great deal by being involved with the post production battles. It's as tough or tougher than filming the movie.

It remains one of my favorites. The opening sequence, alone, is worth the price of admission. Ironically, I bought my copy from Blockbuster and I'm glad I did when I did 'cos it's getting harder and harder to find as a rental (even though I own it I still look for it on the shelves). This is the Vernon Chronicles vol. 2 of DVDs. ( Smile ) Get it while you can.

Got my copy out of a $5 dollar bin at Walmart. It was the only copy I could find in there. People looked at me kind of strange when I did my little celebration dance. LOL

I saw it for the first time on TV.

When I first saw the scene where they're scamming Jamie Foxx, I jumped and said, "Hey that's R. Paul Wilson."

You guys found a great pick in Hal Holbrook. When I first saw him I thought it really was Dean Vernon, and that the movie was just older than I originally thought. It took me a while to relize that he was also the guy from several Disney pictures awhile back.

On another note, when will "Smokin' Aces" be out?
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.
