    i was going back over the transcript from 2001 and noticed a few good titles that weren't brought up in the most recent chat.
    thought it might be a good idea to compile a list, and if someone from the studio happens to pass by, maybe they can drop a little word (or not)
    the point of this thread is not to talk about titles that were mentioned and are not on the schedule.
    just titles that weren't mentioned at all (and whose status remains completely unkown)

    here's a couple to start;

    A Letter To Three Wives
    Ghost & Mrs. Muir
    Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

    I'd like to see an SE of Broadcast News, or at least a bare-bones anamorphically-enhanced edition. The current one isn't 16x9.

    I was hoping for news about 'Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines'.

    Cluny Brown by Ernst Lubitsch, with Charles Boyer and Jennifer Jones.

    (BTW, in response to a question asked in the chat: As far as I know, Fox doesn't own the rights to the original To Be Or Not To Be. Warners released it on VHS, and I assume they still have the DVD rights unless something's changed.)

    I was going to ask about WKRP In Cincinnati, but between the music issues and the poor sales of Mary Tyler Moore I think we can safely assume that that one is staying in the vaults. (A best-of disc with "Turkeys Away" and "Frog Story" and "Real Families" etc. would still be nice, though.)

    NAKED LUNCH. Hopefully, Fox will exterminate all rational thought and give us this DVD.

    I'd like to see Holy Matrimony on DVD. It has yet to be issued on ANY video format, so it would be nice to have it debut on the best format as of now.

    I'd love to see a remastered, anamorphic edition of Boondock Saints come out. I know there's a sequel planned for the film, so I guess I'm hoping that might prompt a better version.
    Mr. Staddon has addressed this title on the forum before, saying something about how the studio they got the distribution rights from didn't want to spend the extra money on the production of the DVD or something like that. It may still be out of Fox's hands, but it'd be nice to have.

    I've got one Fox title on my most wanted list and there was no mention of it in Monday's chat: Silver Streak.

    Ken,
    Several of the titles you have mentioned in your post will be coming out in 2003.

    According to Peter, Millers Crossing and Barton Fink are coming out in early 2003. But what about an anamorphic Raising Arizona?

    Or how about Office Space - Special Edition?
