    A Rather obscure film (i think) -The Memory Wheel 1978

    I bought The Memory Wheel on norwegian vhs about 20 years ago, and still i can't find any info about it. It's not on the IMDB and well...it's not anywhere really. It's a thriller about a wealthy family, money,. murder and everything that goes with it. Was it ever released in the US?

    Can't find anything about this under The Memory Wheel or the title on the tape. Was it an American film or European or...?

    It says USA on the backcover but i guess it could be canadian or even british? I thought about this blasted film for two decades and still it's impossible to find any info. Most of the actors i can't even find on the Imdb. There's a swedish actress called Anita Jodelsohn who's got an Imdb entry but alas no mention of the Memory Wheel...As you can see from the cover..music by Kulberg/Michie. Andy Kulberg was in Seatrain (G Martin produced 2? albums for them in the early 70s) and Chris Michie played on several Van Morrsion records.. But the trail stops there... Surely this film wasn't released only in Norway?

    It seems unlikely it would have only been released in Norway but who knows?

    A quick look at discogs pages for Kulberg and Michie doesn't seem to offer any help either.

    I think you have a serious rarity!

    Yes i guess it is unlikely that it was only released here. Btw i actually forgot to mention: Some years ago i read somewhere on the net (don't remember where)...that this guy (i think he was american) had found (or bought) a 16? mm reel.. And on it: The Memory Wheel... it's not completely unknown, but close...

    Speaking of rare movies. Yesterday i watched Sandman (1993) on vhs. I think it's only available on tape..but atleast it's on the Imdb.

    And that's about it i'm afraid. I can't understand why it's so obscure. There's no info on this movie on the web at all. I can't find the Julien Richards, Peter Lit, Elfie DuPont or most of the cast on the Imdb (or other places). I did find Anita Jodelsohn, probably the only "name" actor here. The film itself was so-so, i sold it in 2000-2001. But the mystery remains....it's very irritating...
