...or else it'll end up in total obscurity. Like these examples:
It might be known in some parts of Europe but here in North America few people have heard of it. It's also known as BOUDICA. I have this in my collection.
And probably the best example of this, THE WARRIOR EMPRESS is still existing in near total obscurity even after being released 50 years ago. Never released on VHS or DVD or never played on TCM. I had a copy of this from a rare TV broadcast and uploaded it to one of my Youtube channels. I removed it but someone else uploaded it to their channel, with my channel intro intact and all. Really annoying. My original upload got over 1 million hits but most people (read: men) probably just wanted to see what exactly SAPPHO THE VENUS OF LEBOS was, the title I used and added myself to the film rather than the boneheaded THE WARRIOR EMPRESS (since there is no Warrior Empress in this film).
