Video Cassettes for Sale and Rent in 1981

Here is another ad I found for a video rental place that is proudly displaying some of the big sellers of 1981. I recognize a lot of these films, many of them timeless classics, but some like Melvin and Howard and The Island are films I have not seen in decades. So I plan on checking these films out this month and see if they hold up to further viewing. I seem to remember enjoying The Island back when I saw it on cable TV, so that should be a real treat.

How many of these movies have you seen? Any you don’t recognize?
