Easter Parade

The Jazz Singer

Driving Miss Daisy

Grand Hotel

Mrs. Miniver

Giant

East of Eden

Rebel Without a Cause

Little Caesar

The Public Enemy

The Petrified Forest

White Heat

House of Wax (3D)

The Big Parade

Enter the Dragon (40th Anniversary)

The Exorcist (40th Anniversary)

A Christmas Story (30th Anniversary)

There will be several more titles coming out on BD too, but haven't been announced yet.  Also, don't forget the Goldwyn and Paramount titles that Warner will be distributing over the next few years like Guys and Dolls and possibly The Best Years of Our Lives along with several other possibilities.

If any of us want more classic films on BD then please buy as many as you're able to, especially, if you want to see more silent, film noir, western or any other genre come out on BD.  The units sold for Laura from Fox will be followed very closely by the whole industry.  If it sells very well then more film noir releases will follow and the same applies to silents with The Big Parade from Warner.

Hate to say this, but outside of The Right Stuff nothing on that list does anything for me. Will buy Laura.

Sorry, but I'm at the age (64) where I don't purchase stuff just to have it. I only get flicks that I enjoyed in the theaters or in some cases TV -- and I'm not interested in yet another release of Wizard or Gone. On the other hand, I'm glad for the folks who find some of their favorites on this list.

Will there be an official announcement re: Paramount titles or will they start rolling them out slowly, perhaps starting with OOP titles like Zodiac before getting to the new stuff?

I can't believe there isn't something in that list to pique your interest, Rick. We're roughly the same age, and I'm ecstatic about some of the offerings mentioned here. No, I have no intention to rebuy stuff I already have (A Christmas Story, Oceans Eleven, Gone With the Wind), but The Big Parade? Driving Miss Daisy? Grand Hotel? the James Dean films? (We saw them working on East of Eden and the results are far beyond what we have on DVD already). I'm very excited about those.

I think Warner is more interested right now with titles that haven't been released on BD yet.  I doubt you'll see an official announcement until a title is about to come out.

I am thrilled about THE BIG PARADE also, but if THE CROWD and THE WIND are not also planned, as well as a Buster Keaton title that Kino cannot release (i.e. THE CAMERAMAN), I remain disappointed.

At minimum, I will be buying HOUSE OF WAX. I'd buy more Classic 3D titles if they release them (still hoping for KISS ME KATE next year). I'm also planning on THE JAZZ SINGER and maybe REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE.

Viewing a 3D movie in 2D is kinda like viewing a Scope movie in Pan and Scan.

I wish I could get more excited about that list (I almost feel guilty), there's a couple of titles there. Just as well there's the Ocean's Collection or they'd be no 60's titles. I wonder what films the Ocean's collection includes? Ocean's 11 & Robin & The 7 Hoods are great, but I could do without the other Rat Pack movies.

I wish Warner Bros would release more of their classic titles in the UK. None of these have been released - many of which I've had to import. You'd think most of them would sell well in Britain: THE MALTESE FALCON TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY (1935) MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY (1961) ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD STRANGERS ON A TRAIN GIGI AN AMERICAN IN PARIS ICE STATION ZEBRA GRAND PRIX THE DIRTY DOZEN THE MUSIC MAN BULLITT BATTLE OF THE BULGE

i'ill buy most of these classics,though i'm a little disappointed with Warner's decision to not include grand classics such as The Big Sleep and Key Largo in its 90th Anniversary roster.Not on BD at least.

Enough people buy The Big Parade then we will see The Crowd, The Wind and Greed.

In fairness, those two titles are highly thought of by Warner.  When they're released on BD one day, it will be done right, example being both versions of The Big Sleep.  Let's remember that many titles need to be rework to pass today's standards for Blu-ray with higher expectations than what came out on BD five years ago.

Yeah, Warner was just as bad with DVD's when it came to releasing catalogue titles in the UK. Happily the Blu's can be imported very cheaply using Amazon UK Marketplace.

Let's remember that domestic rights might be different than international rights which resticts some titles from certain studios.  Don't expect to see Warner distributing Paramount titles to the UK.

The line is long with only so much monies available in each yearly budget.
