A widescreen version of the "'Grumpy Old Men" films would be nice, especially since it appears the only way to get it OAR (the first film anyway) is on Bluray come June.

Let's add the Maisie and Dr. Kildare series titles to the list. It would be great if they did a double feature DVD of the films in each series released once a month. I would also add the following:
The Canterville Ghost
Small Town Girl
Ann Miller RKO features
Torchy Blane Series
Bomba the Jungle Boy Series

I go with Green Mansions and The Human Comedy too.

This is all just to good to believe.

The Student Prince (1954). With the voice talents of Mario Lanza.

I think this has been on TCM in the past, but not for a long time, unless I somehow missed it.

Although I'd rather see it at a more reasonable price in another Classic Musicals box set. Or maybe packaged with other musically-themed titles like The Great Caruso (1951).

Since George Feltenstein has already been quoted as saying: "The goal is to eventually make EVERYTHING available, but obviously that will take a lot of time, and a lot of money", doesn't that make lists of suggested titles a little redundant?

And I for one will be more than a little grumpy if Northwest Passage (to name but one) appears on a burnt DVD, in generic packaging with little more than a cursory makeover...

2011 for a Harlow collection is a bit too far off for me to get excited about.

It would be great if they also offered The Secret Six and one of her other lesser titles like Riff-Raff (with Spencer Tracy) Suzy (with Cary Grant) or Personal Property (Robert Taylor) to tie us over....

This is unless they're planning to cram all of her remaining films in the boxset.

I would also like to see the two remaining (Fifi & Youth Runs..) Lewton titles released. Considering the Lewton boxset sold very well, I would've thought that WHV might've considered a store release for these with audio commentaries and trailers like the other discs in the horror collection.
More Harlow on DVD Now! - Red Dust, Bombshell, Hold Your Man, Saratoga, The Iron Man, Goldie, The Secret Six, Beast of the City, Three Wise Girls, Reckless, Personal Property, Riff-raff, Suzy & Girl from Missouri

John,
It is my understanding that Northwest Passage is going to take some significant investment to it's film elements in order to properly prepare this title for a DVD release. I don't know if such work has already begun or not, but I would hope that Warner completes whatever restoration work is necessary with it and then release this title to dvd through the retailer route either as a standalone or part of a Spencer Tracy boxset.

A price point closer to $9.99 each would be more what I'd be wishing for Posted Image.

Bye, Bye Braverman (1968).

Bye, Bye Braverman (1968) - TCM Movie Database

It is listed as a "Warner Bros.--Seven Arts" production but I don't know if Warner holds the video rights today.

The rest of the Gary Cooper movies owned by WB:

1. The Hanging Tree (1959)
2. Bright Leaf (1950)
3. Task Force (1949)
4. Saratoga Trunk (1945)
5. Meet John Doe 1941 (recent fully restored version)
6. Operator 13 (1934)
7. Today We Live (1934)
8. One Sunday Afternoon (1933)

Blowing Wild not sure who owns this one as it went thru several distributors according to imdb. During the vhs days it was owned by republic but not sure who owns it now:

Imdb info on it:

Production Companies
United States Pictures (as A United States Pictures Production)
Distributors
Warner Bros. Pictures (1953) (USA) (theatrical)
Republic Pictures Home Video (USA) (VHS)
Republic Pictures Home Video (USA) (laserdisc)
Warner Bros. (1954) (West Germany) (theatrical)

If WB owns it I would like to see it released.
