Copies of the locally produced movie Hit For Six! have been flying off the shelves since the movie was released locally on DVD about two weeks ago and stocks are being replenished to satisfy the demand.
Since the Hit For Six! DVD was released on December 14, it has been a hit with many who purchased copies as corporate gifts, as well as gifts for family and friends based locally and abroad. Production company, Blue Waters Productions has been responding to many requests for the DVD from the 15 retail outlets, companies and individuals.
?Towards the end of the pre-Christmas shopping period all of the outlets were sold out and we?ve been re-stocking and manufacturing more copies, particularly since many Barbadians wish to send the DVD?s overseas with persons returning home after the holidays? explained General Manager of Blue Waters Productions, Colleen Hue.
?The public can purchase the Hit For Six! DVD from A&B Sounds, Sheraton Mall; all locations of Chubbies Video Stores; the Power Station at Cave Shepherd in Bridgetown, Worthing and Sunset Crest; and Valz Music World ? formerly No. 1 Record Shop; and we will be adding an airport outlet shortly.? Hue said.
When contacted, Judy Kinch, Manager of A&B Sounds, Sheraton noted that sales of the DVD had gone ?very well?, while Ghulam Bham, managing director of Front Row Video, the owners of Chubbies Video Stores, described the Hit For Six! DVD sales as: ?extremely encouraging!?

Michael King, on the occasion of Barbados? 41st Anniversary.The movie features an all Caribbean cast and crew including popular host of MTV Tempo, Trinidadian Jeanille Bonterre; British-based Trinidadian actor, Rudolph Walker; lead actor Barbadian Andrew Pilgrim; Canadian-based Barbadian actress, Alison Sealy-Smith; and Barbadian actress Varia Williams.
