    Very happy with the outcome and very happy that they sidestepped any ummmmm... irregularities (shall we say) in the voting process by releasing the top two in each decade (and on the same day, too!)
    Sure I still have a list of wants but I feel this was handled very well.
    Thanks!

    I enjoy The Best Of Everything a lot but I didn't vote for it because the DVD is good enough for now. I won't mind at all if Fox lease it out to Twilight Time because that way we'll have a music only soundtrack.

    It did get a few of my early votes, but once I saw how the voting was going, I turned my allegiance to voting for my favorites among the top vote getters to (hopefully) make sure they'd stay on top.
    I think The Blue Bird was the only one I consistently voted for every day that didn't end up moving up in the voting, but I could see that The Ghost and Mrs. Muir didn't need my help.

    While I can't speak for Fox, they did say that they were looking at the list and voting and it would influence their 2014 releases. That may or may not mean anything when it comes to this title, but is good news overall.

    Oliver, you put it so well! "Too big for such a tiny poll" hits the nail on the head! But in any case I'm still ecstatic to see the two Wayne titles finally released.
    Chas, Agony was announced for 2014 release back in August, I believe. However, I'm not certain of anything now. It should make the cut for release by Fox, considering it was 3rd in the voting. WSSRH may end up going to TT. It seems like a title that they would fight hard for. TBOE I think will probably end up with TT. I base my statement on the voting results (TBOE only had 1%) and overall reputation of the title.

    You should be ecstatic to see them on Blu-ray! I just hope that most voters will follow up with purchases of the titles they voted for!

    I think it is premature to expect anything definite from Fox at this point apart from releasing these 9 titles. I am sure they will want to see how such a poll translates into real world sales for each title and then plan accordingly for next year. I know that this is what I would do as a studio.

    What we need is for Paramount to get with it do a poll. I wonder how quality films like Hatari!, El Dorado, and The Sons Of Katie Elder would do??? If they're just going to sit on them, let Olive release them.

    Disappointing outcome for me, not one of mine got the nod. Add insult to injury, Jesse James is one of the worst westerns ever made.

    I'm pretty sure Warner has plans for some of those Duke titles.

    These are really big John Wayne titles, why release them through Olive? Seeing how two lesser Wayne titles have fared in this poll makes me wonder why they would need a poll to release those? What they should do is to space the releases some months apart so that those who are interested buy all of them and not only one or two out of three.

    I hope we get a domestic release of Rock Hunter next year then, or let it be licensed. MoC did it in the UK, so perhaps Criterion here.

    And John Wayne is still big-#5 on the annual Harris poll of favorite actors. Last year he was #3. http://digitaljournal.com/article/318220

    Doesn't Warner now have distribution rights to Hatari!, Sons of Katie Elder, etc.?

    OK, you're entitled to your opinion. But before you make that statement, watch the remake of Jesse James: The True Story of Jesse James, which is a very poor film. And then watch Wild Wild West. That will make Jesse James seem like a masterpiece. I'm curious, why do you so dislike Jesse James?

    I would hope for Criterion but I actually see Twilight Time as having a better chance of getting it :(
