**************** Thanks for the recommendation, Jim. I'm going to surf over to Netflix and see if I can get it in DVD. I finished the book today and it was just spectacular. McGivern is really slick with the religious motifs, Bannion's character, and the noir atmosphere.

I might have to make a trip to Blockbusters to get the movie. I didn't have any luck finding Point Blank at Netflix.

Thanks again, miker
