PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 11, 2006 -- Wednesday, May 31, 2006 marks the 117th anniversary of one of the worst natural disasters in American History -- the Johnstown Flood. Narrated by Academy Award® winner Richard Dreyfuss, Inecom Entertainment Company's "Johnstown Flood" DVD recreates the tragic event through documented and illustrated first-hand accounts from victims while emphasizing the spirit of survival and the bond of community. In honor of the tragic event, a 56-minute version of the documentary is airing nationally on public television and the 84-minute DVD is available at video stores, Internet retailers, educational and institutional distributors and large retail chains such as Borders and select Barnes & Noble stores nationwide.

It has been reported that the National Park Service recently acquired the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and hopes to have it open for tours this summer. In 1889, this exclusive club maintained the dam that broke causing the 40-foot wave of water that killed more than 2,200 people. Also making headlines this week is "Johnstown Flood" narrator, Richard Dreyfuss, whose Hollywood blockbuster film, "Poseidon," debuts May 12, 2006.
