After Seconds, I'd love to see The Parallax View given the Criterion treatment.

 

(I've mentioned elsewhere that it would make a great Twilight Time title, but they don't have a deal with Paramount.)

I second that emotion regarding "The Alamo" -- considering the great job RAH did on the IAMMMMW set, they certainly owe him and I think Criterion are the only people to give this movie and restoration the proper presentation.

 

Personally, a little 69 minute 1937 comedy called "Way Out West" would be my 'I have a dream' request from Criterion -- if not, the tv and theatrical versions of "Marty" in the one set -- and a documentary on Paddy Chayefsky as a special feature.

 

And I third the call for a Criterion DVD release of the 202-minute roadshow version of The Alamo!  I just recently purchased the 167-minute DVD released by MGM in 2000, but I would love to own the more complete version.

 

I would also love to see Criterion release Judgment at Nuremberg (the special edition DVD released by MGM in 2004 is OOP) and The Scarlet Pimpernel (1931).

The latter on two of the most popular and acclaimed Bollywood films, and deserve pristine xfers and Criterion's attention.

Great choices. I wish they had done an early John Waters Eclipse set before that line went under.

I'd be shocked if we didn't get Eraserhead sooner than later, the trailer has been online for a while now..

At the last Wexner Center chat, they said they were waiting for David Lynch's involvement/approval before ERASERHEAD will be released and that it might be awhile before it gets done.

There is a version of Pink Flamingos on Wizard Video, complete with the original mono audio, but that one is way too hard to find.

SHOLAY  was  released in 70mm in India. You can always check   sites in India that sell bluray discs (indura.com)  and request  any  film for a  future bluray release. Your  favourite Indian  film may  even be available on bluray? My favourite Indian film has already been released on bluray: DILWALE DULHANIA  JAYENGE (2 discs with an extra disc of extras.).This film holds the world record for the longest run   of a film continuously  screening at the same cinema (more than 10 years)..See it and you will understand  why it  was so popular. All Indian films have  English subtitles and Indura.com is  the best site to buy from.Their service is fantastic.HAUNTED  was India's first  3D film and it is  available on bluray. I am not a  huge fan of Indian films as their plots tend to  follow the same storyline but occasionally I   buy  them either from Indura.com or my local Indian dvd shop - a few minutes from where I live.

A great cast but mostly a forgotten film today.It would unlikely to  sell in huge numbers. Then again,one wonders    why so many crappy films are  even released on bluray let alone  on  dvd.  (90% of  them). What about  THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN  - a much loved  film from Fox  -one of the  first films shot in cinemascope.THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN (  released in 70mm)  and SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS ( 70MM blow-up) and THOUROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE  are  other   fantastic musicals that I would   truly love to see on bluray.

I agree with you re MARTY and WAY OUT WEST. Both classics. THE ALAMO    was fantastic when seen in 70mm. The   music was unforgettable. a pity it was later cut for non roadshow release.( including two songs).Luckily I have the full version on dvd. It was  a  massive flop when first  released in the cinemas in 70mm. It  had its flaws: Some of the casting was bad-Lawrence Harvey and John Wayne, but the   battle scenes and especially the   extremely moving  finale  were  worth the price of admission. It does however,  drag on for too long.  It was  Wayne's ego trip that badly misfired. It won the Oscar for best sound  and  that was  truly deserved.That was the one thing that I never forgot  after seeing in in 70mm. It would  have been a far better film if it told the  true story of the   battle of the Alamo and not Wayne's   much distorted Hollywood  version.

All classic  films .I   imagine  that you mean the original HEAVEN CAN WAIT, not the  1967 remake   with Warren Beatty.

SPARTACUS  has been released on bluray for  many years. LA STRADA   is  one  Fellini film that  deserves  a bluray release-it was his crowning  achievement.

WATERLOO (in 70mm)  was a massive flop and  a  very tedious  film that should never have been made.One of the  very worst  films  shown in 70mm

TALES OF HOFFMAN   was a  great film.It was originally released in 70mm .

By coincidence we watched our Criterion Tales of Hoffman DVD last night.

I was unaware it was released in 70mm ... was this format used for any other Academy ratio (non-Widescreen) movie? The image even on DVD is uncannily precise.
