    After Seconds, I'd love to see The Parallax View given the Criterion treatment.

    (I've mentioned elsewhere that it would make a great Twilight Time title, but they don't have a deal with Paramount.)

    And I third the call for a Criterion DVD release of the 202-minute roadshow version of The Alamo! I just recently purchased the 167-minute DVD released by MGM in 2000, but I would love to own the more complete version.

    I would also love to see Criterion release Judgment at Nuremberg (the special edition DVD released by MGM in 2004 is OOP) and The Scarlet Pimpernel (1931).

    WAR AND PEACE (Bondarchuk)
    DERSU UZALA (from 65mm elements with multi-track sound)

    SHOLAY
    THE BRAVE HEARTED WILL TAKE THE BRIDE

    The latter on two of the most popular and acclaimed Bollywood films, and deserve pristine xfers and Criterion's attention.

    Great choices. I wish they had done an early John Waters Eclipse set before that line went under.

    At the last Wexner Center chat, they said they were waiting for David Lynch's involvement/approval before ERASERHEAD will be released and that it might be awhile before it gets done.

    There is a version of Pink Flamingos on Wizard Video, complete with the original mono audio, but that one is way too hard to find.

    SHOLAY was released in 70mm in India. You can always check sites in India that sell bluray discs (indura.com) and request any film for a future bluray release. Your favourite Indian film may even be available on bluray? My favourite Indian film has already been released on bluray: DILWALE DULHANIA JAYENGE (2 discs with an extra disc of extras.).This film holds the world record for the longest run of a film continuously screening at the same cinema (more than 10 years)..See it and you will understand why it was so popular. All Indian films have English subtitles and Indura.com is the best site to buy from.Their service is fantastic.HAUNTED was India's first 3D film and it is available on bluray. I am not a huge fan of Indian films as their plots tend to follow the same storyline but occasionally I buy them either from Indura.com or my local Indian dvd shop - a few minutes from where I live.

    A great cast but mostly a forgotten film today.It would unlikely to sell in huge numbers. Then again,one wonders why so many crappy films are even released on bluray let alone on dvd. (90% of them). What about THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN - a much loved film from Fox -one of the first films shot in cinemascope.THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN ( released in 70mm) and SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS ( 70MM blow-up) and THOUROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE are other fantastic musicals that I would truly love to see on bluray.

    I agree with you re MARTY and WAY OUT WEST. Both classics. THE ALAMO was fantastic when seen in 70mm. The music was unforgettable. a pity it was later cut for non roadshow release.( including two songs).Luckily I have the full version on dvd. It was a massive flop when first released in the cinemas in 70mm. It had its flaws: Some of the casting was bad-Lawrence Harvey and John Wayne, but the battle scenes and especially the extremely moving finale were worth the price of admission. It does however, drag on for too long. It was Wayne's ego trip that badly misfired. It won the Oscar for best sound and that was truly deserved.That was the one thing that I never forgot after seeing in in 70mm. It would have been a far better film if it told the true story of the battle of the Alamo and not Wayne's much distorted Hollywood version.

    All classic films .I imagine that you mean the original HEAVEN CAN WAIT, not the 1967 remake with Warren Beatty.

    SPARTACUS has been released on bluray for many years. LA STRADA is one Fellini film that deserves a bluray release-it was his crowning achievement.

    WATERLOO (in 70mm) was a massive flop and a very tedious film that should never have been made.One of the very worst films shown in 70mm

    By coincidence we watched our Criterion Tales of Hoffman DVD last night.
    I was unaware it was released in 70mm ... was this format used for any other Academy ratio (non-Widescreen) movie? The image even on DVD is uncannily precise.
