    UHF, though that's probably more of a Shout! Factory release. Isolated music track would make sense, though.

    I'm not sure what MGM now owns the rights to anymore so i'll just say yes to all in the first post and add some newer flicks to the mix, i doubt we'll see The Alamo as it needs work on it and Twilight Time can't afford to pay for that and MGM won't.

    2 Days In The Valley
    Mulholland Falls
    Desperate Hours
    Untamed Heart
    Running Scared

    I would like to see "Judgement At Nuremburg" and "Inherit The Wind" come out on blu-ray from MGM, either directly or through a licensing deal with Twilight Time...for me, both of these are must-haves...

    Does MGM still own Portrait of Jennie? It's my most-wanted film on blu-ray.

    The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes - Extended Roadshow edit. (Since this may never materialize, I will settle for the theatrical cut.)

    They released it on video, but Disney owns it.

    Definitely both of these though Criterion might do more with them than Twilight Time could.

    And add Women in Love and The Music Lovers.

    Here are some of the titles that I would love for TT to release

    Khartoum 2:76 aspect ratio master showing on MGM HD
    Thief
    Exodus
    Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
    Rollerball
    On the Beach
    Judgement at Nuremberg
    Moby Dick
    Great Train Robbery
    Cuba
    The Train
    Valdez is Coming
    Yankee Zephyr

    I'd say that's a good start ;)
    Plus I beleive that all of those already have HD masters that are showing or have shown on MGM HD. Plus these would be GREAT upgrades as all of the mentioned discs previously had non-anamorphic dvd's...or in the case of Yankee Zephyr..no release at all!

    What a shame Warners wasn't able to purchase this library.

    Well thinking of TT prices plus the p&p to the UK, I'll just list four that I'd have to buy:The VikingsTaras BulbaWhat's New Pussycat?A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The ForumI would list The Alamo, but I understand it's in no state for an HD release, hang your heads in shame MGM.

    It came out on an MGM MOD a couple of years ago (distributed by Fox) that I reviewed on this site. When did Warners get it?

    My wish for TT? Please don't touch anything in the MGM/UA library unless it's been properly remastered for HD. MGM's legacy on DVD has become a disappointing blur of incorrect 1.66:1 aspect ratio transfers...letterboxed no less! Some great titles in that library, but unfortunately last seen from MGM on DVD in pretty dicey form.

    I mean, did MGM suddenly find a wad of capital to restore and remaster? :ph34r:
