Carlton library adds pic color to Rainbow

Four cable nets swapped

NEW YORK — Chuck Dolan’s Rainbow Holdings has bought “On Golden Pond,” “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “The Boys From Brazil,” “Sophie’s Choice” and 36 other ITC movies from Carlton Intl. Media for Rainbow’s four cable networks: AMC, Bravo, Independent Film Channel and Romance Classics.

Jeri Sacks, the Los Angeles-based VP of domestic sales for Carlton Intl. Media, says the Rainbow sale is the first major deal engineered in the U.S. by Carlton since it bought the ITC movie and TV-series library last year for $150 million.

Some of the movies in the package, such as “The Trip to Bountiful,” which won Geraldine Page the Academy Award for best actress, will be able to play across all of the four Rainbow networks. Others, like “Volunteers,” the comedy with Tom Hanks and John Candy, and the sci-fi thriller “Capricorn One,” are geared for AMC.

Brit series pending

Sacks said she’s in negotiations with a number of American cable networks for other movies in the inventory and for British-produced TV series such as “The Saint,” “The Persuaders,” “Thunderbirds,” “Inspector Morse” and “Cadfael.”

Beyond ITC’s library, the Carlton inventory includes movies from Romulus films, J. Arthur Rank, Raymond Rohauer and Alexander Korda.

Carlton inherited previous commitments, Sacks says, in which some of these movies are already under contract with buyers in the U.S.
