I Philadelphia (CNS) - The producer of the movie "Romero" voiced outrage that a distributor introduced the film's video version with a steamy preview for another movie. "I've raised hell about it with' the distributor (Vidmark)," said Pauiist Fr. Ellwood E. Kieser, who produced the work about assassinated Archbishop Oscar Romero of E1 Salvador. The preview that was shown, from "Shadows in the Storm," =should be rated X," the priest said.

Vidmark has taken "corrective action" to see that this kind of preview does not go on a movie like "Romero" again, he said: Vidmark also sent "warning stickers" to distributors "so the public is properly warned," Pernazar said. Fr. Kieser said "Romero" was made available to video rental outlets early in 1990, and sales have gone well. ooooooQooooooooooooeoooooooooooooooooooooooo The old rectory at Our Lady of Good Counsel on Maryland Avenue (Ni Street) in Little Rock.
