    Me too!


    And I'll take "Our Man In Havana" as well! More Carol Reed on DVD is always a good thing!!

    I know it's not supposed to be very good, but I've always wanted to see Nightwing. Hope it won't be too long a wait for it.
    And it's about time they got around to releasing an R1 of The Anderson Tapes.

    actually, after some research it looks like there are quite a few of these that pique my interest. Will definitely be picking up most of the first wave next DD sale.



    BTW- you left out $(Dollars) from the first wave...which is another film I've been wanting to see for years.

    Will these be available individually, or as a box set as a "Martini" movie?

    Hopefully it wount be overpriced (for a barebone affair) like the earlier Sony catalog titles.

    I don't think Nickelodeon even received a VHS release.

    Nice to see they're putting some thought into marketing their catalog titles. How about a "Drive-In Movies" line that would include

    The Stone Killer
    White Line Fever
    Shadow of the Hawk
    Baby Blue Marine
    Drive-In (duh!)
    Aaron Loves Angela
    The Amsterdam Kill
    The Stranger and the Gunfighter

    It's hard to imagine anyone swilling martinis during the hardboiled NEW CENTURIONS or THE GARMENT JUNGLE or HUSBANDS. They don't give off a lounge vibe. But Sony is bouncing back, what with its Hammer sets and this new, if curious, promotion.

    SKATETOWN USA
    FAST BREAK
    GRAVY TRAIN
    BUTTERCUP CHAIN
    JOE EGG
    DANDY IN ASPIC
    HAMMERHEAD
    WHEN YOU COMIN BACK RED RYDER
    Go BETWEEN
    BLESS THE BEASTS AND THE CHILDREN

    Like many others posting, I'll certainly pick up THE ANDERSON TAPES. And, wow, cool to see that FIVE (1951) appears to be in the offing.

    I'd like to see some of Sony's "film noir" released in this line. How about:

    HUMAN DESIRE
    711 OCEAN DRIVE
    THE SNIPER
    THE LINEUP
    THE KILLER WHO STALKED NEW YORK
    MURDER BY CONTRACT
    UNDERWORLD U.S.A.
    TIGHT SPOT
    SCANDAL SHEET
    PUSHOVER
    NIGHTFALL
    MAN IN THE DARK
    CITY OF FEAR
    THE NIGHT HOLDS TERROR
    EDGE OF ETERNITY
    THE CRIMSON KIMONO
    SCREAMING MIMI

    Other possibilities:

    BEAT THE DEVIL (Sony's superior print)
    HEY BOY! HEY GIRL! (The Louie Prima/Keely Smith movie)
    DUFFY
    THE DEADLY AFFAIR
    A PRIZE OF GOLD

    On the goofy end of Martini (or Drive-In) fare:

    THE LOVE-INS
    13 FRIGHTENED GIRLS
    ZOTZ!
    KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE
    SUPERARGO VS. DIABOLICUS
    THEY RAN FOR THEIR LIVES

    My day has just been made! I'm definitely picking up The Garment Jungle, Affair In Trinidad, Our Man In Havana, I Never Sang For My Father, Nightwing and Gumshoe. Other titles range from "eh, maybe" (The Heat's On, Getting Straight) to "No way in Hell!" (Anderson Tapes, Husbands).

    Some other Columbia titles on my wish list Salome (Rita Hayworth, Charles Laughton), Pushover (Fred MacMurray, Kim Novak), Gunman's Walk (Van Heflin, Tab Hunter), Operation Mad Ball (Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs), Autumn Leaves (Joan Crawford, Cliff Robertson).

    I'm in for I Never Sang For My Father. Haven't seen it for 25+ years, but I remember thinking it was quite good at the time. Of course I was much younger then, and not nearly the discriminating film snob I am today! :)

    The Stone Killer is perhaps one of Charles Bronson's best movies.
