    The File On Thelma Jordan yesterday.
    It's a really good movie and most people who like old movies want this one on DVD or Blu-ray. As far as I know, there has never been an explanation why it is still unavailable. I'd buy a pressed disc immediately. Why currently owns the copyright?

    Darby O'Gill and the Little People a few years ago. Wife wanted to watch it out of the blue on St. Pats day. I pulled the VCR out of the rack and bought the DVD the next day. I had to take the VCR out of storage last month to import our wedding video into my PC so I can burn to DVD.

    I disagree on that one. NOTORIOUS was actually missing around a minute of dialog on the AB release, and the Blu-ray releases utilize the same transfers as were released on MGM DVD a few years back. The Blu-ray releases look better due to their higher inherent resolution, but the transfers were done several years ago in HD and then downconverted for the MGM DVD releases. I don't have anything to say about the other Selznick/ABC titles, but as far as those three Hitchcocks are concerned, I disagree.

    This changes everything! Very good to know-thanks. Of course the Blurays would look much better anyway

    Paramount owns this very good movie. I don't think it was ever on vhs either. This would be a perfect fit for Olive.
    Another one that bypassed vhs altogether that would make a great disc was Fox's underrated The Story on Page One. Rita Hayworth was very good in this.
