Paramount Pictures - why only Two pre 1975 films on Blu ray as of April 2010. Wasn't anyone there born before 1975?
The African Queen
It's a Wonderful Life
Granted they're great films - but why only 2?

You're selling Paramount a little bit short. The Godfather and The Godfather Part II are pre-1975

 A Bridge Too Far came out in 1977.

Fox included "Balzzing Saddles" in their Mel Brooks Box Set - so they get points for that!

Has anyone heard any updates regarding The Agony and the Ecstasy and Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines?

I was thinking pre 1970, but extended to 1975 - and Yes, Paramount did release the two Godfather films - bringing their total to an absolute 4!
