why not a box set with female stars? so far you have given us 2 boxes with male stars (tough guys collection, gangster collection) but non with the women( I don't think this one counts http://www.amazon.co....897642?ie=UTF8 )

Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Jean Harlow, Norma Shearer, Vivien Liegh, Judy Garland, Barbara Stanwyck, Katharine Hepburn, Greer Garson, Grace Kelly, Rosalind Russell, Myrna Loy
why not a big 8 movies collection?

Waterloo Bridge & The Swan would be perfect to be included

This concept would work if there was a common theme (a la gangsters, crime, film noir or pre-Code) that you could hang the collection on. But Warner seems more interested in issuing boxes grouped by star (Bette, Joan, Garbo, Judy, etc.)
BARBARA WRIGHT: You're from Earth?
MORTON DILL: No... no, ma'am, I... I'm from Alabama.

Im very sure Warner can come up with a theme for the girls

I can think of 38 Crawford & 34 Davis movies that are DVD worthy
However there is gonna be a Crawford vol.2 & Davis vol.3 next year so there is 33 Crawford, 29 Davis left. they can at least put 2 or 3 Crawford/Davis movies in a "Ladies Collection"

There is only 5 Garland movie left(The Pirate,The Clock,Little Nellie Kelly,Listen, Darling,Everybody Sing)

Elizabeth Taylor & Lana Turner also has some movie that could be included

yeah they might as well box the rest of judy's movies together, release the remaining garbo talkies (6 left) and lana turner needs her own set now.

Little Darlings (1980), My Cousin Rachel (1952), The Deep Blue Sea (1955), The White Cliffs of Dover (1944), Born to Be Bad (1950), Ivy (1947), Reckless (1935), Springtime in the Rockies (1942), The Barretts of Wimpole Street

I think they will release a Katharine Hepburn in May 2007 to celebrate her 100th birthday.

Please Warner. Give us a scopp of what's coming early 2007. I can't wait for the Harlow and Crawford boxes, as well as the mentioned Ginger Rogers collection (though I think this won't be out until 2008). Esther Willians, Bette Davis Vol. 3 and a Katharine Hepburn box would be must buys too.
Can't forget the wonderful Barbara Stanwyck. And since I know she won't have a box set of her own, I would love to see more Ann Sheridan on dvd.

There are a lot of films with female leads from the Warner/Turner catalog that are worthy of DVD release:

Green Dolphin Street- with Lana Turner and Donna Reed
I'll Cry Tomorrow- starring Susan Hayward
Light In The Piazza- starring Olivia deHavilland, recently made into a Broadway musical which was televised this year live on PBS
The Valley of Decision- with Greer Garson (who should have her own box set!)
Escape- Norma Shearer battles the Nazis to save Robert Taylor
Confession-Kay Francis kills for love (now, this is a star who needs rediscovery a la Louise Brooks. Before Bette Davis, she was the queen of Warner Bros., and did many a melodrama that made her Warners' answer to both MGM's Norma Shearer and Greta Garbo- at one point, she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood!)

-mind you, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Just to prove that there are a lot of major and lesser-known films from the Golden Age with stong leading ladies that deserve a DVD release!
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

i hope they have those eleanor powell musicals on the release schedule because she most likely wouldn't get a set devoted to her.

I'm hoping Warner Bros. is going to release "RAINTREE COUNTY" starring Elizabeth Taylor for its 50th Anniversary next year. I'm eager to have this on DVD.
