There are several more examples in both the FMC-to-DVD and FMC-or-forget-it categories. Films FMC airs that aren't on DVD include a slew of non-Shirley '30s titles plus The Guru, B.S. I Love You, Kid Blue, Shock Treatment, Curse of the Fly and Desire in the Dust, with these last four being 2.35:1 films that FMC always shows full-screen.
Then there's a third category, to follow what someone mentioned above, in which Fox brings to DVD films that have never had a home-video release. Some of these--such as Nightmare Alley, Where the Sidewalk Ends, Forty Guns and Somewhere in the Night--have had few if any TV showings in the last decade, on FMC or anywhere else. Since I've had FMC, I'm pretty sure Immortal Sergeant, The Last Wagon and These Thousand Hills have never aired. "I.S." is on an old Key VHS, but the other two are 'Scope films that are making their home-video debuts, IIRC.
So maybe there's hope for One Foot in Hell (nice Alan Ladd western, airs on Max channels sometimes), From Hell to Texas (never on TV?), Cry of the City (Siodmak noir, now on obscure Max channels), etc.
