    I'm thrilled to cross another three Judy Garland titles off my wish list. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the centenary of the World's Great Entertainer!

    Little Women (1949) has been added to the list of films screening at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood next month. It's not noted as a new restoration on the website like Giant or A Star is Born, but neither is Singin' in the Rain, and that just received a sparkling new 4K restoration...

    I have the HD digital which is a nice uptick over the DVD. I'm sure a new scan would be gorgeous. I hope we'll see it one day soon!

    Probably for purely sentimental reasons, as it's my favourite in the series and the first I saw. And, as has already been mentioned, it's the first with Judy. Also, part of it takes place over Christmas, so it's one I enjoy watching every couple of years around the holidays.

    I was hoping that with the slower pace we might see the recent remaster of Life With Father on Blu-ray. (HBO Max isn't available here in Canada so I wasn't able to catch it while it was streaming; I'd love to see this film in beautifully restored Technicolor.) I think they used Santa Fe Trail...

    I don't know about the negative for A Date with Judy, but I do recall that title being included in a long list of films a viewer was asking about on the WAC Podcast, and Mr. Feltenstein replying that each of them was a likely candidate for release. So hopefully one day soon!

    Mr. Feltenstein is a guest on The Extras podcast to discuss the Warner Archive's November slate of Blu-rays. Hearing him speak of the love and care that went into the upcoming release of National Velvet—and the results!—made me even more excited for this Blu-ray... if that's possible! It was a...

    IVANHOE!!!! In addition to National Velvet, the Warner Archive is giving Elizabeth Taylor fans another Technicolor Christmas treat with Ivanhoe! Thank you, Mr. Feltenstein, and everyone at WAC! This should look absolutely gorgeous.

    Dave Strohmaier said earlier this month that it will be released next year instead to coincide with the film's 60th anniversary: https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/my-2-cents-worth-on-brothers-grimm.358328/post-5032552

    Was this the 2014 TCM Film Festival? If so, I was at that screening of National Velvet as well. It was a last-minute addition to the schedule as a tribute to Mickey Rooney, who had died a week or two before, so I don't think they had time to source a decent print. It was quite rough as you say...

    NATIONAL VELVET! Christmas has come early for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mr. Feltenstein and everyone at WAC. This is my second most wanted film on Blu-ray and I couldn't be more thrilled.

    Thank you for the heads up that Life with Father is back on HBO Max. I missed it the first time, so I'll be sure to catch it before it vanishes again on May 31. Still keeping my fingers crossed for a Blu-ray release.

    I submitted a question to the WAC Podcast earlier this year asking if National Velvet is in the works for a Blu-ray release and George Feltenstein said, "I wouldn't say no!" I'm keeping everything crossed. With the exception of Raintree County, it's probably the film I'd like most to see...

    Out of curiosity, why do you only want Ziegfield Follies if the new master is derived from the original negative?
