    While you're at it, include the OAR version of one of my favorites-Cowboy. The DVD release is foolscreen P & S. Ironically, there is a feature on the disc from the 50's in which Jack Lemmon tells viewers that the small TV screen cannot compete with the new wide motion picture screen-a perfect reason to come see Cowboy. Then, they present the movie in P & S for the small screen....

    I gave the DVD to my parents and stuck with my TCM DVD-R in OAR.

    Well we know next years set will include Cimarron and Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but I hope it also includes:
    -The Courtship of Eddie's Father
    -The Gazebo
    -Don't Go Near the Water

    Corey, I don't see the point of including Courtship of Eddie Father in the box as that film is already on DVD.

    I just want to add that I think Jubal (1956) is an amazingly good film. It is a must for any fans of Ford, Westerns, Delmer Daves, CinemaScope etc.

    Also, The Violent Men isn't too far behind.

    My favorite of his is a film entitled The Sheepman, it co-starred Shirley Maclaine. What a good movie!

    Posted by Johannes S re: Cowboy:

    Yes, but if it were the Matted (anamorphic) version, it would look a lot better on a 16:9 display than the current one does. There's little reason to doubt that it was released with (formerly) standard 4:3 displays in mind.

    Thanks for the link to the German version. I think I will pick that one up. Cowboy is one of the great Glenn Ford/Delmer Daves westerns, IMO.

    For a group of alleged Glenn Ford fans, I can't believe that no one has not yet mentioned Fritz Lang's Human Desire (1954) with Ford and Gloria Grahame, a more than decent American remake of Jean Renoir's Bete Humaine (1938). Sony has the rights.

    Well, I didn't mention Human Desire because it is already out on DVD in R2. So I just focused on the films not yet released on DVD. By the way, Human Desire is a GREAT film with my highest recommendation. Will watch it tonight.

    a forgotten Glenn Ford film, RAGE, teaming him up with his co-star from ADVANCE TO THE REAR Stella Stevens, Sony owns this, is a gritty little film with Ford as a alcaholic doctor who contracts rabies and tries to race across the desert to get a cure. Love to see this get released soon.
