I was a great fan of this board game back in the seventys and as a pet project I have created an online version at http://www.internationalmoviemaker.com/index.php.
It is based on simular rules (Accept there is no player trading/Auctions at the moment and you can only play upto 5 computer players at the moment).
This game is still in Beta so there may be a few bugs kicking around, and it sits on my broadband at home so may take a little while to load up the images, but any comments will be welcome by email to julian - at -juliansmith.net PLEASE put IMM in the subject at the front otherwise it will get lost as spam, or post on this forum I guess.

Are you still keeping MovieMaker going? I note the site says last update at the end of Oct last year, so I can imagine maybe Xmas got in the way of things!
Interested to see how it works online.
