    Dear Disney,
    Does Buena Vista have any plans to release more 80s and 90s Comedies in the foreseeable future? (ie. Gross Anatomy, Camp Nowhere, Turner & Hooch)
    Any plans to release their old Disney live-action fare on DVD? (ie. The Love Bug Series, Hayley Mills Collection, The Kurt Russell Collection)
    Yours Truly,
    Brett Talbot

    A Kurt Russell Collection and a Fred MacMurray Collection would be great.
    Disney, are you listening?

    I have no doubt that at some time in the nebulous future, Disney will begin releasing their live-action classics. They are probably designing a "line" for such titles even now. They will eventually run out of animated material to release (except for the one Platinum title each year). And actually they have put out SO DEAR TO MY HEART, so it's just a matter of time. Meanwhile, Anchor Bay is still announcing the DVD of WATCHER IN THE WOODS, albeit not exactly a classic, and they may still have a few more in the wings (whatever happened to IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS and JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN, which Anchor Bay announced two years ago?) TREASURE ISLAND, THE LOVE BUG and a few more are available in Region 2, but the transfers are not great.

    I, too, would love to see these classics on DVD in Region 2. I know many of them have already been released elsewhere (the scurves!)
    Haley Mills Series
    Both Apple Dumpling Gangs
    Love Bug Series
    Journey of Natty Gann would be hella tight!
    Snowball Express
    Fortunately Newsies is coming out in January.

    I can answer my own question. Since my last post in this thread, I spoke to an Anchor Bay rep about further Disney titles (the missing IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS and JOURNEY OF NATTY GANN, for example) and was told those are no longer on the schedule. My guess is that Disney itself will be producing these in time, and will do as good a job if not better than A.B. simply because its commitment to DVD is ten-fold more powerful than it used to be.

    They could very easily do a Bette box set with such films like:

    Down and Out In Beverly Hills

    Beaches

    Outragious Fortune

    Ruthless People (this one is coming...)

    Big Business

    Stella (though a HUGE non favorite of mine)

    I am also waiting for Alive, can't wait to here some of the scenes in 5.1.

    Disney is holding back on alot, but at the same time, I am thankful that they are going into the vaults and releasing what got them to where they are today....their animated classics.

    Maybe one day, we will even see Song of South....who knows.

    I'm with you on the "Bette Box". She did some of her best acting with Touchstone, IMHO.

    With announcements through May already, I have mixed feelings. It's great that Disney is finally starting to release more live-action material, provided that it is all widescreen anamorphic (and I do believe it will be). So in some ways this is a blessing that a lot of the titles I've been waiting for should receive 16 x 9 treatment.
    However, there have been few titles catching my attention. Most of the ones I really have been waiting for:
    Houseguest
    Jungle 2 Jungle
    Tom and Huck
    The Muppet Christmas Carol
    Cheetah
    Man of the House
    Life with Mikey
    Jack
    nowhere to be found. [​IMG] I do hope at least some of those titles come this year. At least Angels in the Outfield is coming....that's a good one.
