These retrieved portions of said movie related information are presented to the user. The system includes a manager to enable users to create personalized versions of movies, and personalized collections of items. The system includes a system and method for providing to users on demand access to merchandise information related to a movie, and for providing on demand connectivity to merchants, while the movie is being presented to the users.
