Lady in a Box has been repeatedly sold, broadcast and streamed  in the US, Canada, Europe and Russia on the Mini Movie Channel, propeller TV's channel SKY 195 World Cinema Programme,  Ouat Media and Movieola.   Below is a complete list of its screening history.

 We're really proud of our little movie that we completed in 2006, and of the fact that it not only broke even but that I was able to pay off the SAG actors' deferred salaries (unheard of with a short!), and, shockingly for a short, to turn a profit for myself.  There are also a number of bootlegs out there that pop up online from time to time, which makes me smile; I'm happy for the interest. My producer and close friend Matt Myers passed away in 2021. We worked on many projects over the years but I'll always remember Lady in a Box best of all.  A few months after he died, I made the entire short available for free on youtube. You can watch it here.
