Anyone know of any additional John Ford films in the pipeline for Blu-ray?

 

My number one Ford film for Blu-ray is She Wore a Yellow Ribbon but I assume it would need an entirely new restored master for Blu-ray transfer.  My dream is that WB restores it and debuts the restoration at the TCM festival followed shortly thereafter by the Blu-ray release. :)

 

Warner Archive Instant Streaming is now showing Wagon Master in high definition. (I am too technologically impaired to figure out how to watch this on my TV.)  So I'm wondering if there is now a high def master suitable for Blu-ray.

 

Also would love:

 

Wee Willie Winkie

My Darling Clementine

3 Godfathers

Mogambo

They Were Expendable

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Cheyenne Autumn

 

And a re-do of The Searchers.

 

Actually I would welcome any Ford film on Blu-ray but the list above is the ones I would most like.

You can get The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence from UK Amazon and it's region free.

I'll buy any John Ford film on Blu-Ray. So far we have:

The Searchers: color is wrong, needs to be redone
Stagecoach: excellent, considering elements.
The Horse Soldiers: OK
The Grapes of Wrath: pretty good.
How Green Was My Valley: excellent
Rio Grande: very good
Fort Apache: very good
The Sun Shines Bright: Superb
The Quiet Man: pretty good, depending on who you ask
How The West Was Won: Excellent
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Europe): Doesn't look like film, needs to be redone
Drums Along The Mohawk (R2): 1080i, haven't seen it

My most wanted Blu-Rays are:

My Darling Clementine (both cuts)
A good version of Liberty Valance
Prisoner of Shark Island
Young Mr. Lincoln
Two Rode Together

Drums Along The Mohawk BD R2 has a nice image, although shadows tend to be crushed.  The audio has a weird out-of-phase sound throughout.
