I've compiled this poll with titles Warner released in their several "Classic Musicals from the Dream Factory" boxsets...  By all means please add your own titles. :)

In addition to the titles in the poll and the ones already listed, I would add Brigadoon, High Society, and the Mickey-Judy's.

I vote for Good News. It's a harmless little musical, but it features Joan McCracken, who should have had a bigger career.

This poll is a good idea. I would add High Society and Seven Brides off the top of my head!

I love "Good News".  A lot of people tend to forget that before Gwen Verdon, McCracken was Fosse's muse.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me? The Band Wagon is not even listed? Is this some kind of joke?

I didn't include "Band Wagon" for the reason that Warners has already given this title the Ultra Resolution treatment on DVD and a Blu-ray release, sooner or later, is pretty much a given.   :)

I hope you're right. My DVD is not nearly good enough. A BRD of quality comparable to that of the Singing In The Rain BRD is essential.

 

Oh yes: one other thing. The outtake of Cyd Charisse's Two Faced Lady number must also be fully restored.

Of the MGM musicals, I, too, would really want Kiss Me Kate 3D, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, all of Judy Garland's color musicals including In the Good Old Summertime which I think would look stunning with its warm Technicolor hues, Brigadoon, On the Town, Lovely to Look At, It's Always Fair Weather, Love Me or Leave Me, and Kismet.

What a pack of dynamite she was. The energy in GOOD NEWS is due to her performance and to a smaller degree, Ray McDonald. It would also look out standing on Blu. It has my support

I'm not much of a musicals person, but two I'd like Warner to release (& not on the list) are:

 

Gold Diggers Of 1933

 

Brigadoon.

Kismet would be #1 on my list. It's nice to see that Silk Stockings is going well on the poll--

Byron, thanks for starting this poll.  It was a good idea, and it's

very interesting to see the results thus far.

I thought it would be interesting - I knew "Royal Wedding" would do well here but it's great to see "Silk Stockings" as the major favourite so far.

The Pirate would be dazzling on Blu-ray IF Warners put more work into it than they did on the lackluster DVD release. The version that airs on TCM is much more vibrant than the dull-as-dishwater DVD.

...it's the "later" part that worries me...how many years now have we been told that it's being worked on...(as I said in another post...I'm not getting any younger)...
