COURIER-POST, Monday, May 29, 1995 8D Disney to tap direct-to-video market A look at regional companies in last week s trading. South Jersey Stocks ANNUAL CLOSING CLOSING CHANGE CHG By JOHN HORN Associated Press BURBANK, Calif. - The Walt Disney Co.'s home video unit expects to produce as many as four movies a year that will debut in video stores, including a live-action sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Buena Vista Home Video is also considering a direct-to-video sequel of Pocahontas, the new Disney animated musical due in theaters June 23, said Ann Daly, president of the home video unit. The push for direct-to-video movies follows the runaway success of last year's The Return of Jafar, an animated sequel to Aladdin that bypassed theaters and was first available on videocassettes. The Return of Jafarsold 10 million cassettes, and Disney said it was more profitable than the studio's 1990 blockbuster Pretty Woman. Rick Moranis, who starred in 1989's Honey, 1 Shrunk the Kids and 1992's Honey, I Blew Up the Kids, will reprise his lead role in the third film. The company is also making Aladdin and the King of Thieves, a sequel to The Lion King and Disney's first feature-length movie based on the Winnie the Pooh character. Both the Aladdin and Honey sequels are due out next year. Daly said the company plans to make at least two live-action and two animated direct-to-video sequels annually. The success of Jafar, a lower-budget version of Aladdin without elaborate animation and well-known actors' voices, proved "there is a market for good programming," Daly said. The direct-to-video movies, she added, "are not meant to replace what is currently being produced for the theaters." Aladdin videocassettes sold 25 million tapes, she said, "so the market does tell you there's a difference" between a theatrical and direct-to-video presentation. Disney is not alone in discovering the direct-to-video market, which had been dominated by exploitation movies and films so bad they didn't qualify for theatrical distribution. MCA Inc.'s home video arm is releasing a direct-to-video sequel to 1990's Darkman. It is due in July.

Burlington, NJ 386-2600 fin By LAURA MYERS Associated Press WASHINGTON After years of silence on the .issue, the Treasury Department has attacked a J House plan to replace dollar bills with coins, saying Americans don't want to give up paper currency. J U.S. Mint Director Philip N. Diehl said history shows the buck stops here at the Mint's vaults when $1 coins are involved. He's got nearly $300 million in quarter-sized Susan B. Anthony dollars , stored, more than half of those minted. And the hefty Eisenhower dollars have been dropped in ' more Christmas stockings than stores since the early 1970s, he said. "We will end up with billions of dollar coins on our hands again," Diehl told a news conference. "We don't have room in the vaults. "This is another attempt to force the American people to accept something they've rejected twice in the past 25 years," he added. But Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., who has tried for seven years to get rid of $1 greenbacks, said it's time to retire old George to save millions on printing and to make it easier to use vending machines, parking meters and buses. "Americans are always very resistant to change," Kolbe said. "But I'm finding a lot less resistance these days. People understand that we need a whole new system that works. We need something besides the quarter." His legislation would require that the $1 bill be taken out of circulation as the $1 coin is introduced, forcing people to use the new money. The new quarter-size coin would have a gold color and smooth edge to distinguish it from the quarter. The United States is the last industrialized nation to hang onto a paper currency worth as little as the dollar, according to Kolbe. Nations from Japan to Canada have changed in recent years. Despite great initial resistance in 1989, the Canadian "loon" has become very popular. In the 1700s and 1800s, various $1 coins circulated in America. But modern-day versions have proved unpopular: the eyeglass-size Eisenhower is too heavy and the Susan B. resembles the quarter, causing confusion. The Mint expects to run out of Susan B. dollars in the next few years as the U.S. Postal Service and transit groups put them into circulation. But two opinion polls conducted last year show weak support for replacing the $1 bill with a coin, ranging from 13 percent to 20 percent, the Mint said. Mint Director Diehl said that if Kolbe's measure becomes law, coin-haters might turn to the $2 bill, a bicentennial issue that might have to be reprinted to meet demand. Diehl took the unusual step of publicly denouncing the $1 coin proposal because it appears headed toward approval: CLASSIC NISSAN Of Turnersville Rt. 42. Black Horse Pike Turnersville.
