I know Columbia has released most of its Frank Capra catalog, but they seem to have forgotten "Platinum Blonde" with Jean Harlow and Loretta Young. This is one I would like to see.

More Harlow on DVD Now! - Red Dust, Bombshell, Hold Your Man, Saratoga, The Iron Man, Goldie, The Secret Six, Beast of the City, Three Wise Girls, Reckless, Personal Property, Riff-raff, Suzy & Girl from Missouri

Powell and Pressburger's "Stairway to Heaven" (aka A Matter of Life and Death). Columbia funded a restoration and small theatrical rerelease in the 90s with the participation of Martin Scorsese. Scorsese has done commentaries on what, four Powell and Pressburger films for criterion(either laser and DVD)? I'll bet he'd be amenable to participating in a DVD release of this one too.

IMHO, one of the best English-language films never to be on domestic DVD or laser (at least not region 1 - there my be an R2 DVD by now.)

Also, Albert Brooks' "Modern Romance".
And "The Awful Truth", as previously mentioned. Yes please!
"The Silencers" - I have a weakness for the Matt Helm movies.
and Polanski's "Tess".

at least I think those are all at Columbia

It is my duty as a blues lover to enthusiastically agree with the plea for Crossroads on DVD.
'Went down to the Crossroad
Got down on my knees...'

Also I would immediately buy Married with Children, the Critic and News Radio on DVD.

Plus, I doubt if they own the rights, but Three's Company. BTW, who does own those rights, if they don't?

Forgot about ROBIN AND MARIAN.

And Cynthia, speaking of Robins, Robin Hood: Men in Tights is a Fox film. You might be getting that mixed up with another Mel Brooks parody film, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, which is a Sony release.

Another vote for Crossroads, in OAR and 5.1, with a trailer, please. I'm kinda surprised that this isn't actually available already...Cheers.

Crossroads is an excellent choice.

Columbia, may I suggest releasing the TWO
Jerry Lewis titles that I know are
under your studio's label...

The Big Mouth
Don't Raise The Bridge Lower The River

There just isn't enough Jerry Lewis product
on the market, and Paramount is giving us the
runaround about getting their bulk of his
library out.

Thanks

I second what Ron has said about more Jerry Lewis films
and that all P&S are released in Widescreen as well.

My favourite is Crossroads, and SpiderMan is set for a 2 DVD set.
