    In 2010, I'm really hoping that more obscure tv movies come out like:

    Project X

    (does anyone remember this one?)

    Cold Turkey

    Murder Can Hurt You

    Now I know some of these properties may not be owned by WB, but I was surprised by the Man From Atlantis coming out from them.

    What do you guys wish would come out?

    What I want to see out in the archives this year is the Warner Westerns and detective shows from the 50s and 60s. Shows like more Cheyenne, Maverick, Sugarfoot, Bronco, 77 Sunset Strip, Bourbon Street Beat, etc.

    I guess i would have to chime in on the same titles as others have. The 50s and 60s detective shows and westerns. 77 Sunset Strip would be at the top of my list.

    How about The F.B.I., and 1980s shows like The Mississippi (1983-1984) with Ralph Waite and The Yellow Rose (1983-1984) with Sam Elliott and Cybill Shepherd. Obviously proper DVD releases would be ideal, the star casts certainly would justify that. And of course the 1970s Harry O with David Janssen, that detective classic definitely deserves better than pirate copies floating around or even the Warner archive thing, its cult popularity and fan demand ought to warrant the real deal. Just like it's happening now with Scarecrow and Mrs. King.

    Other thoughts about the WB Archives:

    Has anyone noticed that a great man studios (including WB Archives) are holding the names of their titles pretty close to the vest this new year. There aren't too many clues on what films are coming out (or what's being considered).
    This lack of information is driving my crazy.
    P.S. Considering that the WB Archives have been releasing 20 titles a month and there are 12 months a year. there will be 240 new releases by Christmas 2010. That'll be about 500 films by them.

    The World, the Flesh and the Devil (1959). This deserves a standalone "pressed" release, not just because it's a good film but also to cash-in on the end-of-the-world craze currently affecting Hollywood.

    I have Private Lives and I don't remember any problematic issues with it outside of the company using an old video master for it and thus sharpness isn't great and sound is very hissy (as I recall; I watched it months ago). Of course, it's a 1930 movie, so one expects sound to be rather primitive.

    There's really only one WB series I'd pay a premium for that isn't already out: Harry O.

    If they're WB (and who knows?), I'd also pay for Slattery's People and The Great Adventure -- but I figure I'll be at that great video store in the sky before THOSE are available!

    I notice a lot of people are hoping for vintage TV shows on WB Archives. Have ANY TV series been put out on the archives line yet?

    My vote would be for "Red Dust" "Raintree County" "Little Nellie Kelly" "Throroughbreds Don't Cry" and the Andy Hardy movies.

    The show Eleventh Hour was put recently. It is a recent show though and not a vintage show. I think the reason people are hoping for the vintage shows is because 1) this is the forum for tv on dvd and 2) when this series was first announced they said that they were thinking of putting out vintage TV series on the archive series, but so far nothing.

    I'd love to see the "real" ELEVENTH HOUR from the sixties with Wendell Corey and great Guest Stars, I was very disappointed that it was "the other one."
    Re THOROUGHBREDS DON'T CRY and LITTLE NELLIE KELLY: They'll probably come out with the Judy Garland megaset. EVERYBODY SING came out as part of the WIZARD OF OZ promotion: Garland and Billie Burke.

    I would like to see the Midnight Caller (1988) complete series put out since it doesn't look like it will make a regular release. WB had a connection to this series through Lorimar so not sure if they still have the rights but if so I think it would sell well.
