Some of these have been issued sometime ago elsewhere outside USA such as an Exclusive deal with a major chain store for the Jerry Lewis titles(not Boeing Boeing, though).
,,
There are a couple of former stage shows amongst them in film versions: COME BLOW YOUR HORN, &, BOEING BOEING. Both of these were presented on the stage in Australia. This play is French origin and said to be the most performed French play around the world. 
 
A pretty good collection of unseen films as far as I am concerned but it is a pity that Olive Films is a little high in their prices. Paramount must be happy or lazy(meaning not doing it themselves) with the deal.

Several interesting titles in the announced list above. After having a quick glance at the list, interested in the films The Hangman (1959) (Jack Lord in the cast) and The Slender Thread (1965).

I'll be buying quite a few of those titles, and quite definitely the two Tina Louise and the two Stella Stevens movies. Boeing Boeing I remember as very funny indeed. Captain Carey I've never seen but always wanted to because the song Mona Lisa comes from it. My Son John is the ultimate Red Scare movie.

32 films in 11 months? That's a big jump in output of them, I hope they can handle it. The films are great so I can't wait.

Great to see such a large release schedule. The release of The Savage Innocents has been held in suspense for a while, and was originally part of the first wave. I've heard a tentative Spring release has been planned, but I've gotten slightly impatient on that one.

Great news for we fans of catalog titles but -sigh- seeing as how De Mille's The Buccaneer (both versions) is on the schedule, I can't help but wonder if his Samson And Delilah will ever see the light of day.

I wonder if these titles will come under a 100th Paramount anniversary banner from Olive.  I see about 8 I will be ordering for sure and another 6 on the fence.  Some of the titles I have wanted for a long time.  I still think Samson and Delilah will be out from Paramount themselves as a Blu-ray.

I'd think that Paramount would want to release that themselves. Roll on a stonking looking Blu-ray. The film is a lot more fun than The Ten Commendments..& that temple scene at the end, I don't think they could improve on that now.

Many great titles, though it is, sensibly I suppose, smaller than the initial unconfirmed list that was posted earlier. These releases only go up to '67 and I notice the announcement is through ClassicFlix. Is the absence of post-60s films on this list because ClassicFlix has no interest in them? I was really hoping to see 1984'S FIRSTBORN, which was part of the initial list sourced from IMDb credits.

ClassicFlix doesn't stock films that aren't part of the "classic" era. Their cut off is, I believe, 1970 and on so they wouldn't list a film like Firstborn. The list is for their customers only so they only list the films they will stock.

Yes, I understand that, which is exactly why I wondered if this is the complete list. I know ClassicFlix's philosophy and noticed that the announcement was from them. I have good friends with close connections to the Olive folks so I'll see if I can squeeze some more info out of them.

Some very interesting films and a number of titles I want, but I will be pleasantly surprised if Olive actually releases a third of the films on that list.

Jon is right that there are some post-1970s titles that aren't included due to Classicflix trying to keep their rental program in a specific "classic" era, cutting off anything made after 1969. The list provided earlier by Harry Lime in the Olive Films tread shows those post-1969 titles.

Still disappointed that the folks at Paramount and Olive continue to over look such gems as The Rat Race(1960), The Pleasure of His Company (1961), My Six Loves (1963), Love with the Proper Stranger (1963), All the Way Home (1963), [I]Wild is the Wind (1957), [I]Ash Wednesday (1973), and Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977).

Hopefully, some of these will see BRD (and Olive won't have any trouble licensing Mona Lisa). Remember Olive, I'm still looking for The Mating Season, Secret of the Incas, and more Bob Hope. Merry Christmas to you too.
