JOE KIDD ('72)
MAID TO ORDER 1.33:1 ('87)

I'd love re-masterings of

Unlike everyone else, I could care less about The African Queen, moldy Busby Berkeley musicals, or bad Rocky Horror Picture Show ripoffs. I just want to see a complete Betty Boop set.

Mostly the 1970's output-the decade that seems most neglected these days. With all the studios dipping into their usually clamped shut vaults recently I am picking films never before on video at all or only obscurely so. Upcoming from that lot are AGE OF CONSENT, FRIENDS F EDDIE COYLE, FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET all never released on U.S. video prior. My wish list for 2009: THE OUTSIDER ALL THIS AND WORLD WAR 2 AMERICAN HOT WAX (I know of the Fotomat version) ALEX AND THE GYPSY SUNDAY LOVERS NOTHING LASTS FOREVER FAST CHARLIE THE MOONBEAM RIDER CHECKERED FLAG OR CRASH LEADBELLY ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE FIVE DAY FROM HOME VISIT TO A CHIEF'S SON AT LONG LAST LOVE LUCKY LADY WW AND THE DIXIE DANCEKINGS ALMOST SUMMER DOWN THE ANCIENT STAIRS STAIRCASE THE BLUE BIRD CRAZY JOE ALEX AND THE GYPSY DEALING TAKING OFF PLAY IT AS IT LAYS WHY NOT? DINNER FOR ADELE Others that have been on video that I would love to see on DVD: CITIZENS BAND LOOKING FOR MR GOODBAR

Phantasm II (1988)

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair
Grindhouse (2007) - Theatrical Cut (with fake trailers)
The Game (1997)
True Lies (1994)
Demolition Man (1993)

You all have listed so many of my long-awaited titles, so I hope that Warners releases Volume 2 of their Esther Williams collection with MILLION DOLLAR MERMAID and DUCHESS OF IDAHO , a John Garfield Collection with AIR FORCE and THE SEA WOLF, and a Myrna Loy collection with her early, pre-code films, PENTHOUSE and THE PRIZE FIGHTER AND THE LADY. And releases of MGM's silents too, such as THE MERRY WIDOW and LA BOHEME

I second the Esther Williams vol. 2 idea. Also, a not-public-domain set of Chaplin Keystones; Yolanda and the Thief (45); Rapture (65); and anything with Paulette Goddard or Robert Montgomery.
Most-wanted R1s: The Patsy (1927); Personal Property (1937); Ever Since Eve (1937); Hold Back the Dawn (1941); Two-Faced Woman (1941); Kitty (1945); Yolanda and the Thief (1945); Black Magic (1949); Rapture (1965)

Even though it's an obscure movie for general audiences now, I'm still suprised W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings hasn't made it out yet. I thought for sure when Anchor Bay inked a deal with Fox, this would have been a shoo-in at some point. I still hope to see it- I remember it being a huge favorite of mine when it first played HBO (likely late 75/early 76) and I haven't seen it since. I trust my 8 yr olds sense of taste too because the only other HBO seen films I recall being infatuated with from that period were Phantom Of The Paradise, Paper Moon, and Prisoner Of Second Avenue. Another title I forgot but would love to see is California Dreaming. What really bites is this was found in a list of 30 or so titles that BCI was in the process of negotiating the rights to before Navarre closed the label down. Probably not a good time to be pining for esoteric content.

Well, I do care about Esther Williams, and I look forward to a second box-set. I'm quite sure Esther has more fans than Betty Boop.
