I don't know why there're pushing Unforgiven, I don't think it's that good a western. Rio Conchos would be much better & would be a good companion film to The Comancheros.

I did an about face today and voted for Doris Day in Do Not Disturb.  Not my favorite Doris Day film, but since its the only one on the list it will have to do!

Yes, I much prefer Doris' other romp with Rod Taylor - The Glass-Bottomed Boat, but it's not a Fox title.

Oops! Wasted my write-in vote yesterday on a non-Fox picture. So I went today with PRINCE OF PLAYERS, a great companion to this year's LINCOLN!

And that's a Duh following the Oops. PRINCE OF PLAYERS, of course, was a write-in for the 50s. For the 60s, I went with the charming but little remembered JOANNA. Still remember the unexpected "2nd" ending that had people stopping in the aisles to watch, and them applauding like mad ...

I saw JOANNA when it came out and enjoyed it immensely. Wonder it if still holds up... Would love to see Prince of Players in its Widescreen/Multi-channel glory.

Stanley Donen's Bedazzled, one of my favorite 60's comedies.

I think The Unforgiven's a very good Western.

Yeah, fair enough, these things are subjective. If I'm being honest I wouldn't put myself out to buy any of the titles on the 60's list.

Prime of Miss Jean Brodie all the way! Maggie is astoundingly good in this. But seriously guys? John Wayne is taking the votes? There are already any number of Wayne movies on Blu-Ray. Give other classics lovers something to enjoy. Of course I knew going into this that the ultra-masculine titles would wind up winning as usual... They should split the choices up so the war/western/noir lovers get what they want but leave options for the rest of us. :(

Yay! North To Alaska is leading...for now. I dropped a write-in vote for The Blue Max. That one had better not get licensed to Twilight time.

Lot of good choices. Voted for Can Can, even though I've never seen it! Maybe because I've never seen it. Agony & Ecstasy looks great as a film. Unfortunately the movie was made a couple of decades before they cleaned the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and so the painting is a bit dirty. In other words, the brilliant bright colors that we now know Michelangelo used, and which are so important to this fresco, are simply not seen. It's a good movie, but flawed for me in that important way.
I read in one of Charlton Heston's books that the ceiling colors of the replica ceiling they used were too bright according to critics of the time and he claimed that they achieved the same look in the movie that the ceiling had after the cleaning/restoration some decades later. I voted for The Agony and the Ecstasy by the way but was thinking it was scheduled to be released this year through Twilight Time? Imo Can-Can has the potential to look better on Blu-Ray as it reportedly got a very high resolution scan very recently but I fear that it has little chance of winning out in this race so I went with The Agony and the Ecstasy. Bandolero is out in Europe by the way so with it being released already I would rather go with a movie that I cannot yet buy on Blu-Ray.

I'm holding high hopes for the wonderfully funny BEDAZZLED, and The Order of The Bouncing Beryls. My write-in today, however, was THE VISIT. It was a recent Fox Archive selection, but, as with most of their WS films, was issued in pan-and-scan. Sheesh!!

There's a German Blu-Ray set available with three of Doris Day's films "Do Not Disturb", "Move Over Darling" and "Caprice". PQ is excellent and discs are region AB. Quite reasonably priced. http://www.amazon.de...58547506&sr=1-7

Chances are all the titles in the poll will come out over the next two years (MGM had done a similar poll with VHS and all titles you could vote for eventually were released).

the 70MM website has a write up that a new scan was completed, but a print could not be struck because the negative was in bad shape. Probably the same element used for the DVD.  The 70MM neg has damage and the DVD has a slight problem with shifting color, but it still looked pretty good and the score (isolated tracks) sounds great

They'll probably both get released. Fox would be sacrificing a great sale by not releasing both of these.
