Secret secret never seen...
...Actually the majority of you have seen 'Mr Rice's Secret' (aka 'Exhuming Mr Rice') via satellite or scratchy third-generation copies from some European friend or other. Well the film will finally be available to rent in the UK from April 9th (through Odyssey Video Rental) and possibly sooner in other parts of Europe, but it won't be available to buy for a further two months until it goes on sale in July. So only another five months or so to go then...Unless, of course, you are one of twenty BowieNetters who are about to win a copy.
Yes that's right, the selfless and incredibly generous BowieNetter (and talented poet to boot), Russell Phillips, has donated twenty copies of this enchanting film to BowieNet, when he could have just knocked 'em out at his local car-boot sale over the weekend for a tidy profit. What a diamond geezer. These copies are instant collector's item preview versions in VHS PAL format with a timecode running across the top.
Despite the collectibility (if such a word exists) of these prizes, if the format or the timecode is likely to upset you, please give others a better chance of winning by not entering yourself. Unfortunately Baby BowieNetter Steve K is disqualified from entering as the film has a 12 certificate, but not to worry my gummy little friend, a special BowieNet consolation lolly is winging its way to you. If the rest of you fancy your chances go here.
