Robin Hood: Men in Tights was distributed by Columbia overseas but by Fox in the US.

Dracula: Dead and Loving It was a Castle Rock title, and is now owned by Warners.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

I just thought of another one:

Mississippi Masala.

With Denzel Washington's Oscar, and the recent success of director Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding, I would think this would be a no-brainer to release on DVD.

Roderick,

Great list! You remind me of...me! Posted Image

I had I feeling I had missed listing a few crucial titles in my previous 2 posts, and your selection jogged my memory. So, I'd also like to see the following on DVD (in proper OAR) from Columbia Tristar:

BLIND ALLEY (1939)
THE FACE BEHIND THE MASK (1941)
ADDRESS UNKNOWN (1944)
SO DARK THE NIGHT (1946)
THE UNDERCOVER MAN (1949)
FATHER BROWN (1954, aka THE DETECTIVE)
THE STRANGLERS OF BOMBAY (1959)
A STUDY IN TERROR (1965)
TORTURE GARDEN (1967)

One correction: although Columbia originally produced/distributed Frank Capra's BROADWAY BILL (1934), it subsequently became the property of Paramount, when Paramount & Capra decided to remake the film as the Bing Crosby musical RIDING HIGH (1949). Paramount issued BROADWAY BILL on tape & laserdisc a few years ago (I have the LD edition).

I notice a lot of votes for their Hammer films and Harryhausen flicks, but nothing about Toho classics. Columbia Tristar owns the rights to THE MYSTERIANS, BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE, THE H-MAN, and the original MOTHRA. We need all those films in widescreen for the first time please.

Then they should release the latest two Godzilla blockbusters, Godzilla Vs. Megaguiras and GMK. Throw in the final MOTHRA 3 (1999) as well.

Also have them release Superbit Enhanced versions of Godzila Vs. King Ghidorah and Godzilla vs. Mothra 1992 (they already released those last two with really crappy VHS transfers and no extras).

Probably under MGM/UA HV with the rest of the AIP catalog, but just in case the rights are still retained by Columbia, also:

"Delenda est . . . . "

Brian Cleary,

You're not alone; I listed THE H-MAN, MOTHRA and BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE in my initial post on this thread. Can't get enough classic-era Toho sci-fi in widescreen, that's for sure! Posted Image Posted Image
