    For me the standouts in that list waiting for Blu ray treatment are the two Captains ... Captain Blood and Captains Courageous -- and Pygmalion.

    Well...full disclosure...I had changed it to something different (1929 - 1930s)...and someone else came along and changed it to what's there.

    But if you are happy, we will leave things where they are! :thumbsup:

    I'll be watching East Lynne, The White Parade, The Vagabond King (1930 Technicolor) and Rosita (Lubitsch/Pickford) Thursday next week at UCLA, prior to attending the 3D Film Expo at the Egyptian.
    I have seen all the other BP nominees, save for The Patriot, of course.

    Battlebeast,
    I have seen The Patriot trailer. I have also seen color footage of Lawrence Tibbett in The Rogue Song, not just the Laurel and Hardy excerpt.
    And although it's taken me most of my life to achieve the goal of watching all the extant nominees for BP, I've been fortunate to have seen most of them in original or archival prints. Some films, however, are looking even better in BD.
    BTW, thanks for pointing me towards UCLA. My contact there has been very helpful.
    Jose
