    SEVEN CITIES IF GOLD (Anthony Quinn),
    KING OF the KHYBER RIFLES (Tyrone Power), I want Garden of Evil Presdents Lady

    Razors Edge and Marilyn 1963 the latter at the top of my list. Somethings Got to Give restored and released already on DVD would be great too.

    XANADU is Universal. Not happening with Twilight. And WAY WAY OUT is Paramount, again not happening with Twilight.

    That's one I'd truly love to see with a decent looking 16:9 Widescreen transfer and it's original full stereo soundtrack.

    The early Cinemascope production of "New Faces" was originally released by Fox but seems to have slipped into public domain, although I suspect that the estate of the original Broadway producer Leonard Sillman might still have some interest in it.

    Fox subsidiary Key Video did release a wide screen/stereo version on VHS many years ago. I've never been able to track it down.
    All existing DVD releases are poor to atrocious, the recent VCI Entertainment release in 4:3 letterbox with supposed Stereophonic?? sound is the best of a miserable lot, but at least it is Widescreen and has much better color than the others.
    It is unfortunately Interlaced and the left hand side of the image has a small amount of distortion.
    There are a few missing frames, so It appears to have come from a collector's print.

    I live in hope, but I doubt we will ever see a decent version. Very sad.

    Doug.

    Picked up a used copy of the Anchor Bay DVD of KRAKATOA EAST OF JAVA for $4 recently. The disc is widescreen non-anamorphic but would look GREAT in blu-ray. The special effects and miniature work are incredible. Nice to see the disc open up with the "Cinerama Presents..." logo as well.

    Krakatoa is a large format film so would look great on blu-ray if transferred well.

    The Major & the Minor was a Paramount film now owned by Universal. So it is them and maybe Criterion in USA or Masters of Cinema in UK(Eureka.

    A couple of Sony titles that spring to mind: Only Angels Have Wings & Someone to Watch Over Me.

    since I don't think anybody else will do it. I would be thrilled if TT restored 1956 Moby Dick.

    Second Buckaroo Banzai. I believe it is coming available overseas on blu-ray (either the UK or Germany and it might be region free or compatible (as was my German blu-ray of Wanda Nevada).

    Witness for the Prosecution is available on blu in Australia via Umbrella Films http://www.umbrellaent.com.au/p-3879-witness-for-the-prosecution-blu-ray.aspx. Although the website says Region B, t's my understanding from another forum that it's Region Free and looks pretty good. It is available online via JBHiFi and a couple of other Aussie online retailers. $22 but $8-10 shipping from Australia.

    The Big Sleep (1978) is with Lionsgate.

    Battleground (1949), Operation Crossbow (1965) are with Warner.

    The others are indeed MGM.

    Sorry to be picky, but Peter Sellers wasn't in The Mouse On The Moon, Margaret Rutherford was. It's a great little movie (directed by Richard Lester). I have happy memories of seeing it at the pictures & would have to buy it.

    Two Billy Wilder's I'd love are, Irma La Douce & The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes. Oh gawd, so many great & enjoyable movies still to be released in HD!

    Yeah, I caught that inconsistency in my list statement but decided to let it go...I figured most folks here would know what I meant anyway. Merely noting that TT *theoretically* now has access to the studio libraries containing both The Mouse That Roared and its sequel, two British screen comedies I've always loved for their wry, dry, impish style.

    Guess it pretty much depends on the state of both masters, but boy, would I ever love to see a twin hit of 'Mouse' wit some month.

    Thanks! It's hard keeping up with who has what! At least most of my list MIGHT get a TT release.
