VCX Acquires Cal Vista Library

Tod Hunter
LAS VEGAS — Adult classics distributor VCX has announced a deal to acquire the entire classic library of former Cal-Vista icon Sidney Niekerk. The titles, 176 in total, were mostly shot on 35mm film between 1970 and 1985.

"V — The Hot One," "Eruption," "3 A.M." and "Nothing to Hide" are all part of this library which — aside from 63 titles that were put out on DVD by NuTech Digital — have never been out on DVD.

"We intend to release five to 10 of these titles per month on DVD, concentrating on those titles that have never been released in that format. We will begin releasing them in May, and then we will transfer and re-author the entire line of titles already released in DVD format," VCX president David Sutton said.

"I have always been a fan of the way that Sidney Niekerk has operated his entertainment businesses, and his counsel has always been helpful to me in the development of the growth of VCX both domestically and internationally. Sidney and his wife, Dani Duran, were close friends of my father and I consider them to be great friends of mine as well. Dani Duran worked for my father at VCX and was his right hand girl. They both take comfort in the fact that we will preserve the integrity of this, one of the greatest libraries in the history of porn."

Exact details of the agreement are not being released, except that the deal includes all rights in all territories, excepting previously existing VHS contracts. All licensees of the former Cal-Vista titles in existence will be instructed to divert those revenue payments to VCX.
