 KVC ENTERTAINMENT GROUP CHANGES NAME TO BARR ENTERTAINMENT
 IRWINDALE, Calif., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In September 1990, Barr Films acquired the video library of KVC Home Video out of bankruptcy, forming KVC Entertainment Group (KVCE). KVCE is now changing its name to Barr Entertainment, and will serve as the home video production and distribution arm of Barr Films. This entertainment division of Barr Films also features the library of Full Service Entertainment, which acquired Barr Films earlier this year.
 KVC Home Video was known for its release of classic "public domain" films in the home video market. As the home video division of Barr Films, KVCE released the hugely popular Cory Everson exercise videos, "Step Training" and "Step 'N Time," and Robert Slatzer's Marilyn Monroe expose, "The Marilyn Files." Headed by Barr Films Executive Vice President Mark Gilula, Barr Entertainment will provide an array of high- quality special interest tapes for the consumer marketplace, specifically in the areas of entertainment, self-improvement and health/fitness.
 Located in Irwindale, the company is comprised of three additional divisions, School & Library, Management Training, and Barr Audio. This multilevel approach allows each division to focus its energy on acquiring, producing and distributing films, videocassettes, audio cassettes, and laserdiscs to distinct special-interest target groups.
