Really great selection for Vol 3. To Sir, with Love is a nice surprise. I thought Poitier would be in this set, but was thinking Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? I probably would have included either Tootsie or Silverado instead of Annie for the 80's selection. But not a big deal. Criterion...
Per Bill Hunt and rumors on another site, it appears that Vol 3 will include It Happened One Night, From Here to Eternity, The Last Picture Show, Annie and As Good as it Gets. Nothing yet regarding 6th title. I'm going with a 60's film, either A Man for All Seasons or Guess Who's Coming to...
Unfortunately, Sony does not have home entertainment rights to The Last Emperor in the U.S.and most of the world. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure it would have been considered for UHD. At one time it was with Artisan Entertainment in the U.S. before Criterion released it.
My early speculation of what they possibly could include in Volume 3.
The Lady from Shanghai (1946)
On the Waterfront (1954)
A Man for All Seasons (1966)
Funny Girl (1968)
Little Women (1994)

Nice group of films IMO. Each one of these movies represent what is best about the studio. I never even considered Stripes, but it ends up being kind of a inspired choice. Even though The Social Network is relatively new, I think it is a brilliant film is a already on the path to being a true...
I'm waiting until this evening to officially watch it. But yes, the transfer is stunning, it is beyond my expectations. You will be very happy. I'm with you, it and O.K. Corral two of my absolute favorite westerns also. I was happy enough to just get it on Blu-ray, but wow.
There seems to be fulfillment issues with Mommie Dearest and Amazon. My pre-order of Last Train from Gun Hill with Amazon was updated for delivery between June 17 and June 30. I cancelled it and changed my pre-order to Best Buy. I did notice that BB is Mommie in stock. Lately with some...
