oprah's favorite gift basket for the movie buff

united artists 90th anniversary prestige collection for the whopping price of $869.98.
...a whopping 90 dvds of their best and most popular films have been compiled into one book. the set includes 8 academy award winners like in the heat of the night, annie hall, some like it hot, rocky, west side story and midnight cowboy. each dvd is packaged with liner notes about the movie and never-before-seen photos and original movie posters.

..the writers of those historic movies will make only four cents out of the $869.00 that the basket costs. ninety dvds times four cents would come out to $3.60. that is the writers' share of the presige collection. hold on, i have to amend that. only the writers of the movies after 1960 will be eligible for the four cents. billy wilder and i.a.l. diamond had the misfortune of writing some like it hot in 1959, so their estates will receive nothing. - nikki finke's deadline hollywood daily
$3.90. that's it per basket for the folks who created the rich heritage of films that united artists is cashing in on.
