I little while ago, I came into possession of a record that was labeled as the soundtrack to Video Wars. After doing some research, I found out about the movie itself directed by Mario Giampaolo and starring George Diamond. After first getting the record and now reading about the movie, I would really like to get my hands on a copy of it. A VHS copy wound be amazing, but if anyone out there has a digital rip of it, that would be great as well. Any leads would be greatly appreciated! Please get in touch.

Thanks!

Imdb has no page for a movie called VIDEO WARS, no record of a director called Mario Giampaolo, and no mention of an actor by the name of George Diamond (there is a George Diamond but he's a sound engineer from the 1930s so clearly not the same guy)

This must be rare!

Yeah, there's not much information on it out there. I have links to a few pages that shed some light on it, but I guess since I'm new to the board I don't have permission to post links yet.

Again, any help would be most appreciated!

Yup, this is one of the pages I came across. Please keep the leads coming! I was told in another forum that there is a rip up on "CG" but I don't know what site they are referring to. Anyone have any ideas?

This thing doesn't even have an IMDb page? Damn, that is extremely obscure. What is the soundtrack like? Based on what I've read, I bet it's some cheesy Italo Disco.

Someone seriously needs to find a copy of this flick. Interestingly, it is listed on Letterboxd.com with a review made.

I'm also interested in hearing the soundtrack. Is it possible to upload it at all?
