Stumped on how to locate an old movie : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread

I have a very dear friend of 84 yrs old. He and his wife have been neighbors of mine for the past six years. They moved here from Mexico where they lived most of their life. He built what must have been a very unusual home in the hills of Mexico and it was used as the backdrop for two movies filmed who knows how long ago. One was called el Secuestro, starring Jorge Rivero, and the other movie is named Claudia. He did see the movie many years ago, but as surprise for his birthday I wanted to get a video of either one of them. He would be so pleased. I have looked at and Ebay with no luck other than to find one called "el secuetro de los 100 Millones" which is not the one I need. Any of you have any suggestions as to where else I might look/search?? Thanks..

It does exist but it ain't cheap, El Secuestro, $56.00, 80 minutes VHS.
