I'm still waiting for the Dorothy Lamour Technicolor "sarong" movies: HER JUNGLE LOVE, ALOMA OF THE SOUTH SEAS, TYPHOON, BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON (1938-42), as well as the first film in the series (but shot in black-and-white), THE JUNGLE PRINCESS. I've never known these to even be on TV in my lifetime. And the one Maria Montez-Jon Hall film I've never seen, THE WHITE SAVAGE (1943), also in Technicolor.

I see they have a combined deal with Sign of the Cross and Cleopatra and a few other films with the set. I wonder how they look?

The reason that the cut-off was '48, by the way, was because after that year, television distributors had to pay a portion of the profits towards SAG royalties.
Don't take the term "pre-48" too literally. Universal owns quite a few Paramounts released in 1948 and 1949.
1948: "Albuquerque," "Beyond Glory," "Big Clock, The," "Dream Girl," "Emperor Waltz, The," "Foreign Affair, A," "Hatter's Castle," "Hazard," "Isn't It Romantic?" "Miss Tatlock's Millions," "Night Has a Thousand Eyes," "Paleface, The," "Saigon," "Sainted Sisters, The," "Sealed Verdict," "So Evil My Love," and "Whispering Smith."
1949: "Accused, The," "Alias Nick Beal," "Chicago Deadline," "Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, A," "Great Gatsby, The," "Heiress, The," "My Own True Love," "Song of Surrender," "Sorrowful Jones," and "Streets of Laredo."

Quote:More Deanna Durbin would be most welcomed! Over the last year I have been seeing more of her movies and they are addicting! I wouldn't even mind another Sweetheart collection!100 Men and a Girl, His Butler's Sister... to name a couple...Originally Posted by MattH. Hopefully the Deanna Durbin movies we haven't already gotten. That would be wonderful.
I recently watched all 485 Best pictures (plus about 10 others films) in 365 days! www.oscarmovs.com
