    Cool. If you guys are able to get any clarity on how Paramount's distribution deal with Warner is structured that would be great. (The speculation from the wording of the press release is that Paramount still preps the disc assets but Warner handles final authoring and distribution, similar to the MGM/Fox setup).

    Also the status on the two C.B. Demille movies hinted at last year: Samson and Delilah and The Greatest Show on Earth.

    What an insult it would be to the memory of C B DeMille to have a studio other than Paramount release these films!
    DeMille was a mainstay of Paramount for decades and was very loyal to the studio in many ways. The Greatest Show On Earth was his Oscar and possibly his proudest moment, with only the remake of The Ten Commandments being competitive.
    Have we no sense of history anymore?

    The first film is coming to BD in 2013 so I expect the same with the second one.

    Paramount has final approval, I expect to see Shane and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence on BD in the next few years.

    Paramount is well aware of their history.

    I don't think they're going to be slapping WB logos all over DeMille films.
    I think it will be like what you see with MGM titles - prominent MGM branding with one small Fox logo on the back and the design layout following the Fox template.
    We will likely see Paramount logos and a small WB logo and the WB design layout - look at what was done with The Avengers - Paramount logos on a Buena Vista design layout as Disney owns the film but Par has the right to be credited with distribution.

    Looking very good for most of those titles. We saw some restored elements of TWOTW today at the Paramount Archives. Those Wayne titles didn't come up, though other Wayne titles were mention as being considered for 2013 and 2014.

    It has not been announced officially yet, but we can expect Stalag 17 released by Warner Brothers in the near future.

    The Stalag 17 release may be as part of a double feature with The Dirty Dozen.

    Interesting news about the consumer voting for Fox titles. I had some questions prepared for them but no one made a thread in the Hollywood 2012 Meet section so I'll just post them here; some would be great to see on Fox's new Filmmakers Signature Series.
    Any Blu plans for:
    Pre-1990
    De Palma's Phantom of the Paradise and The Fury
    Lumet's The Verdict
    Scorsese's The King of Comedy
    Murnau's Sunrise and City Girl
    Hitchcock's Lifeboat
    The original Flight of the Phoenix
    The Blue Max
    The Ox-Bow Incident
    My Darling Clementine
    Leave Her to Heaven
    Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte
    The Innocents
    Fantastic Voyage
    Willow
    All That Jazz
    The Driver
    The Turning Point
    The rest of the Rodgers & Hammerstein (The King and I, Carousel, State Fair, Oklahoma!)
    Films shot in 70mm (Cleopatra, The Agony and the Ecstasy, Hello Dolly!, Can-Can, Star!, Doctor Dolittle)
    Tyrone Power Adventure Films (The Mark of Zorro, Son of Fury, The Black Swan, Captain from Castile, Prince of Foxes, The Black Rose, King of the Khyber Rifles, Untamed)
    Post-1990
    Coens' Barton Fink
    Cameron's True Lies & The Abyss
    Bigelow's Strange Days
    Volcano and Lake Placid (guilty pleasures :)
    Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
    A Good Year
    Death Sentence
    Titus & Garden State (should look great)

    Yesterday when Fox reps were talking about the upcoming votes for new releases, I noticed that among the posters they had up as part of the slide show: JESSE JAMES, PIN UP GIRL, and BOOMERANG.

    Boomerang is in one of the Kazan BD box sets and looks very good in 1080p.

    Bummer.I'd prefer standalone release over double feature.Since it's coming from Warner,i'm still hoping for a 60th Anniversary digibook release.

    I prefer the double feature since Warner will be looking at doing some work on Dirty Dozen again with lossless audio.

    I'm curious. Other than a few films and their direct sequels (usually horror or sci-fi), what films debuted on Blu-Ray as part of a double feature?
    And in this case (Stalag 17 and The Dirty Dozen), what links these together. Sure they both take place during World War II. But one (TDD) is an action film, and one (S17) is more a suspense/drama with comedy. They don't share directors or cast.
