Happy to see Testament on the list...

Can't wait for Laverne and Shirley...

But I noting still nothing with the Peanut's titles and the schedule seems really absent of anything Halloween related for Sept that has been heavily sought after like "Let's Scare Jessica to Death"
or "Student Bodies."

I could be really happy about the Friday The 13th set...but I am more afraid to find out what will not be in the set as compared to what the fanbase as been asking for decades to see....

Also...what happened to the Special Edition of "Grease" that was rumoured for this year?

Explorers - YAY!

But...

What happened to the rumoured classic Star Trek season boxed sets?

The release of Conquest of Space is also good news.

Conquest of Paradise is announced! Hopefully not barebones but a nice 2-discer... A date for Fire in the Sky is also great, at last!

Foul Play


YEAH!. 'bout time!
i kinda expected to see this one in the fall.
wonder if they were able to rope Hawn and Chase for an audio commentary?

other than that,
it will be nice to get The Andy Griffith show, and I Married A Monster...is a nice, welcome surprise, and a couple others (with long stretches of nothing of interest) but i'm still a little disappointed that there is no
Love With The Proper Stranger
or Let's Scare Jessica To Death
or Ace In The Hole.


but FP will be nice to finally cross off the list.


Thanks Robert!

Wow, all those titles and probably only one trailer.

Seriously, good line-up and nice to finally see Le Keep. I thought I'd never see howlers like Whispers in the Dark and Bug committed to DVD anytime soon.

Not to pee in anyone Cheerios, but it's awfully disappointing not to see the long-rumored Preston Sturges film, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, on this list. Both Barrie Maxwell and prestonsturges.com had hinted it was coming in the near future. Ah, well .... here's hoping for 2005.

I also note the absence of Bertolucci's The Conformist, Huston's African Queen (which seemed a longshot to make it this year, anyway), and Wilder's Ace in the Hole.

I suppose the only release that interests me is the 1993 documentary about Orson Welles' uncompleted film, It's All True. Unsure if I'll invest in the Andy Griffith season sets (certainly among my five favorite TV shows of all time).

Brain Donors? Who woulda thought?!?!

Oh well. No Police Squad or Get Smart. But Brain Donors and Star Trek Generations will be mine. I can finally retire my widescreen VHS copy.

I assume most of these won't have trailers. Oh well. Here's hoping Generations has some great features.

This forum owes a special thanks to Martin Blythe for D.A.R.Y.L. Unless I miss my mark, it wouldn't even be on Paramount's radar if it wasn't for requests from HTF members. Let's be sure to reward the effort come October.

Beyond that, I'm glad to have a date for Andy Griffith and Hogan's Heroes. Day and date on those. Posted Image

I wonder if the Jerry Lewis titles will be in sets, sold separtely or both.

When I read "Naked Jungle" I initially thought it was "Naked Prey" and let out a loud "YES!". Oh well. There are plenty of great titles on this list.

Conquest of Space! Hoofreakingray!

I Married a Monster From Outer Space-- Julie K's dream release!

Um, the list seems a bit incomplete, or I need new glasses. Is Robinson Crusoe on Mars not on that list anywhere? I can't seem to find it.
