    Warner says next year they're picking up on the catalog titles. I'll believe it when I see it, but here's what I know
    THX 1138 (Warner)(Robert Duvall)- I bet this would be as much in Lucas' hands as anyone

    Jeff - you say, "Warner says next year they're picking up on the catalog titles." I have been trying for a week to track down the source of this rumor. Can you back this up? Where did you hear it, from another thread? (No one making these claims in the other threads has yet responded to my challenge to produce evidence).

    Good list Norm, I would buy 15 of the titles you listed if they came out on DVD.

    I second Time After Time. I also would like to see some of my guilty pleasures:
    Police Academy Parts 2-7
    Daffy Duck's Quackbusters
    Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation
    Yes, they're cheesy, but I love 'em. [​IMG]
    I'd also like to see Warner revisit the Vacations, and atleast put them in anamorphic widescreen. I've always seen them in Pan & Scan, and would absolutely love them in WS. I guess it's possible they could re-release them in 2003 to coincide with the first one's 20th aniversery, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. [​IMG]

    I'd be more hopeful about WB returning to catalog titles if I had a better idea what their definition is of catalog titles....if it means only going back to 1970, I'm none too pleased. If however they announce a special Winnie Lightner Vitaphone set, then I figure they're ready to take their catalog seriously again. [​IMG]

    Warner, when will you release a season by season box set of FRIENDS for region 1? Many people including me are dying to have this funny show on DVD and some are even buying the the other region ones. Please do us a huge favor and release them!!

    IVAN: I am interested in ordering several of the RKO titles, such as Sindbad Le Marin (Sinbad the Sailor) and La Chose d'un Autre Monde (The Thing From Another World). I can order these more easily from Amazon/France than from other sites, as I have an account, but what is the approx. exchange rate of 106,59 FF / Eur. 16,25? Is shipping a huge expense? Finally, although you say the RKO titles have English tracks and optional subtitles, are the written credits in English or French? Thanks for any help.

    Rumor mill has it that WB is 'pondering' the idea of
    3-D versions of "Dial M for Murder" and "House of Wax",
    with a standard 'flat' versions to be included as well.

    Yankee Doodle Dandy
    Friends Season-by-Season box set
    Oh, God! Box Set
    Dial "M" for Murder
    Adventures of Robin Hood
    Police Academy Box Set
