A little early 1990s epic called, CLASS ACT~! Starring Kid & Play. I will accept nothing less than a packed, 2-disc special edition with a gorgeous 16x9 enhanced transfer and a fresh Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack.

There were a couple of classics that didn't appear on the chat that I'd love to see on dvd:

Kings Row (1942)


The Man who came to Dinner (1942) - very funnny classic

(a line from The Man who came to dinner:

Sheridan Whiteside replying to his Nurse who was telling him off for eating a chococate:
'My Great Aunt Jennifer ate a whole box of candy every day of her life. She lived to be 102, and when she had been dead three days, she looked better than you do now.')

and also another vote for Strawberry Blonde (1941)

A lot of the Warner unreleased films on my wish list are coming this year or in the near future -- and with 2-Disc SE's to boot: Meet Me in St. Louis, Around the World in 80 Days, King Kong, etc.

Still, I really want these as well:

-East of Eden
-Tortilla Flat
-Captain Blood
-The Sea Hawk
-Dodge City

Yes, I like Errol Flynn and I like movies based on Steinbeck books! Posted Image

Many of the titles you list are scheduled for release (Around the World in 80 Dyas, Wyatt Earp) or were discussed during the Warner Chat (Ballad of Cable Hogue, O'Lucky Man) - you should read the transcript for more details.

Yes I know, but "not yet on DVD" was the criterium. I still don't have them in my hands. (I'm full of trust, though Posted Image )
