    No mention of Drums Along the Mohawk in the 30s choice but it was released in Blu in Scandinavia. I don't have it because my order thru UK was cancelled as No Stock left.

    Also some Carmen Miranda in Blu-ray can't be a bad thing.

    I wrote in Mark of Zorro for the 1930s. I'll try to correct that. I voted for The Black Swan. My hope is that Mark of Zorro is already a lock for blu so that it was not included.

    I could watch THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR all day and night for the rest of my life. Gene Tierney and Bernard Hermann's score. Who could ask for more! And I have to admit I'm a big crybaby at the end.

    To the Shores of Tripoli. I haven't seen this one, but I love old war films and Maureen O'Hare, so that gave me two solid reasons....

    LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN would be nice. Technicolor noir!

    Another write-in here for LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN. One of the few Film Noirs in color ... in fact, it won the Oscar for Best Cinematography (Color).

    Yes!! Why didn't I think of it myself? LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN would be an obvious and stunning choice for 1940's blu-ray as (I'm pretty sure I remember reading) it was restored after being released to DVD and the restoration hasn't yet been seen commercially.
    Not only did it win an Oscar, it singlehandedly started the post-war fad for Southwestern interior design!
    I'm going to write that in every day!

    I voted for Mother Wore Tights because I don't think it has been released on DVD and it is one of the Betty Grable films I haven't seen. I Wake Up Screaming would be another good choice for Blu-ray as it has such lovely b & w cinematography. Incidentally, every time I think about Betty, Neil Sedaka's wonderful tribute comes to mind.

    I voted for Mother Wore Tights today. I've mentioned wanting it here for years, so I thought it'd be pretty hypocritical not to cast at least a few votes for it even though there are certainly others in the list I'd like to have as much if not more. No, it hasn't been released on a region 1 DVD as yet, so a Blu-ray would be a nice surprise. But Grable's enormous popularity in her heyday seems to have faded over the decades, so one doesn't hold out much hope for its chances.

    I wrote in for the Will Hay comedy Where's That Fire. Very remote chance they'll ever release it, but it's the only major Will Hay comedy unreleased on home video and would probably get quite a bit of imports.

    I was told by Twilight Time that The Blue Bird(1976) was on the list of titles Fox gave them to choose from. I guess the print wasn't good enough, so they passed. Too bad, I also would have loved a Blu-ray of that! I've been voting for The Ghost and Mrs Muir and [B/A Letter to Three Wives[/B]. I submitted Jane Eyre (with Joan Fontaine, Orson Welles, and even a young Elizabeth Taylor in the brief but memorable role of the sickly Helen Burns) as a film I'd like to see on Blu.

    While I hold out high hopes for MOTHER WORE TIGHTS, which I still have on VHS in its mini- clamshell, I'm continuing to write in missing Oscar winners and nominees. Today's write-in was THE PIED PIPER, with the always delightful Monty Woolley, as well as Roddy McDowell, Anne Baxter and Otto Preminger.

    I'm pleased that someone else has considered The Pied Piper. It hasn't been shown on TV and I've only seen it from a VHS bootleg from a poor-condition nitrate print. It really needs work done as it's a forgotten gem that was nominated for Best Picture in 1942.
