DVD/VHS pricing -- an answer

In case anyone has been following (rather than automatically deleting)
this thread and shared my befuddlement at the exorbitant VHS prices Chuck
was quoting, I've had a couple of people contact me directly with an
explanation.  Those $100+ prices for VHS copies are pre-release offers
primarily aimed at video rental stores who want to get the movie into
stock fast.  When the video hits the home market (or is not being marketed
to stores), the price falls to its normal, sub-DVD level.
