My mistake on Sea Hawk......I meant Sea Wolf with Edward G. Robinson and John Garfield.
I had forgotten that Shipmates Forever was on a Warner Archive musicals promotion.

THE SEA WOLF and SILVER RIVER have issues with missing footage. I would also add ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN to the MIA list.

I wouldn't mind a nice remastered SANTE FE TRAIL.
Also, ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN, and a remastered version of ROUGHLY SPEAKING, which was one of the early Archive releases.

Most of the key Warren William titles (EMPLOYEES ENTRANCE, SKYSCRAPER SOULS, et al) are still MIA.

I have asked WAC on Facebook about EMPLOYEES ENTRANCE and they had responded saying that the elements were in very poor shape and they were looking into the problem. I had the laserdiscs of both above titles and really enjoyed them so I hope WAC can find decent elements.

I'm pretty sure DODSWORTH resides with Goldwyn and not with WB/MGM. TRADER HORN looks lousy on TCM and I'm sure requires a lot of work.

DODSWORTH is available on MGM/UA dvd.
The MGM/UA version is actually officially OP (hence the inflated price on Amazon) but the film will probably be re-issued by WB under their Goldwyn distribution deal (hopefully in Blu-ray!).

FIRST FAMILY is available for rental or purchase via Amazon Instant as an "Archive Collection" title, so I assume it's being readied for Archive release. NORMAN is also available via Amazon Instant and is presumably in the Archive pipeline, too.
