    Hans:
    Some time ago I entered 21 Jan 1991 as the release date for 1916, which I believe came from Wikipedia (not always the best source). I have now checked my other reliable sources and find multiple listings for 26 Feb 1991, so I changed my entry. Thanks for the heads-up.
    Cheers, Dr. Rock
