How do/can you get a still print from video/DVD?

that the submission asks for at least one still photo for promotional purposes.
I don't have any; it was a one day shoot last year and the actors are scattered.
Does anybody know a way to get a print from a DVD? Thanks.

Just note that a DVD frame is only a 720 x 480 pixel image. Many publications won't accept such a low-rez digital photo.

crosshair that you can grab anything on the screen with. It gets saved on your desktop as a .png file which you then simply can open and do stuff with in Photoshop.

I had somebody helping me and she went with David's suggestion and we did it that way
but all of the other ways could come in handy under different circumstances.
Anyway, we made the deadline with the required materials and if later they want to ask if we can
get a higher-rez image we can do something about that then but for now your help enabled us to
get everything done on time.
Thanks a lot!
