Jim Baker of Warner Bros "Without making a formal announcement, I will tell you this, next year is the 90th anniversary of Warner Bros., we have not yet formally announced what are plans are, but we’re going to be doing that at our lot in early October. We’re going to be converting a lot of films to Blu-ray next year as part of our anniversary, including five Best Picture winners that have never been on Blu-ray. I can’t tell you what they are, but they will be coming out. There are some other boxsets that are absolutely extraordinary and I think it’s going to be the year of Blu-ray next year and consumers are going to go wild over what Warners is bringing to the party." http://cinema-fanati...ion/#more-12139

By my count, these are the WB Best Picture winners not out on BD:


"Driving Miss Daisy"

"Around the World in 80 Days"

"Mrs. Miniver"

"Life of Emile Zola"

"Great Ziegfeld"

"Grand Hotel"

"Broadway Melody"


So narrow it down from there! Posted Image

Well, the Best Picture winners currently "owned" by Warner Brothers, not necessarily produced by them. I believe they also have video distribution rights to Cimarron and Best Years of Our Lives.

By my count, these are the WB Best Picture winners not out on BD: "Driving Miss Daisy" "Around the World in 80 Days" "Mrs. Miniver" "Life of Emile Zola" "Great Ziegfeld" "Grand Hotel" "Broadway Melody" So narrow it down from there! :)

I know it's an MGM film and the concentration will probably be on WB films, but I hope we finally see RAINTREE COUNTY, the winner of this year's most wanted catalogue title on BD here at the HTF!

A quote from WAC's FB page : Someone: "Any chance that we may see Raintree County coming to DVD? I have been enjoying the Archive tremendously btw..." WAC:" It is a very ambitious and expensive project, but it is still under consideration for a high profile Blu-ray release at some point."

Thanks, Oliver. That's more or less what they've been telling me for the last few years. I truly hope it happens. It's my number one most wanted film on Blu-ray. It didn't even receive a region 1 DVD release.

Ok Warner, its time for James Dean films. And please consider Shaft in Afirca and Shaft's Big Score given that you will release the original Shaft this year.

If they are putting out box sets, it may be the year we see blu boxes of the Thin Man films and Astaire/Rogers. Neither WB, but hopefuly they won't be too strict.

A James Dean set?  That is exactly what I am hoping after reading they are planning on collections.

McCabe and Mrs. Miller would make me happy, but I know it doesn't really scream "anniversary celebration".

Would love to see the WB Hitchcock'e make it to blu. Not his best films (Strangers on a Train excepted) but for completion sake, particularly with the Universal and MGM ones making their way to blu this year.  And some of the classic gangster films, particularly Public Enemy.
