Dear Guys:

 

Does anyone know of website/source that lists the most requested unreleased films/tv movies that have never come out on DVD. Something like what tvshowsondvd.com does, but only for films and movies. I know what my top ten requested unreleased films are, but I'd love to know what the consensus of the experts say.

 

My top three are:

 

What's So Bad About Feeling Good?

The Adventures of Horus: Prince of the Sun

Richard Williams version of A Christmas Carol.

 

Opinions?

 

James

TCM used to keep a list of the top 200 most requested films not released to DVD, but it was taken down some time ago. I could only find it through a web archive:

 

http://web.archive.o...m/top/notondvd/

 

Though, many of the films on that list have since been released on DVD.

I've never seen any of the Dorothy Lamour "sarong" movies made at Paramount, 1936-42:

THE JUNGLE PRINCESS (1936)

+ 4 in Technicolor:

HER JUNGLE LOVE (1938)

TYPHOON (1940)

ALOMA OF THE SOUTH SEAS (1941)

BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON (1942)

 

And they've never been shown on TV in my lifetime, at least as far as I've been aware.

 

Plus, one film I saw at a film festival in 1984 but has never been shown on TV (that I know of) or come out on home video in any format:

 

LYDIA BAILEY (1952/Fox) - based on a historical novel by Kenneth Roberts. It deals with the Haitian Revolution of 1802 and features the film debut of William  "Blacula" Marshall as "King Dick," one of the revolutionaries. I suspect that the film's subject matter has made it too controversial. (The film is clearly pro-revolution.)

Alan Ladd's centennial was last Tuesday (Sept. 3). He's not well represented on DVD. I'm happy to see that a number of his films have been mentioned in this thread so far.

Timothy Carey's THE WORLD'S GREATEST SINNER.
Ron Ormond's THE EXOTIC ONES, with Sleepy LaBeef.

EDIT: How could I forget DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS? Those poor PD dvds don't even count, as far as I'm concerned.
