    I reviewed Wild River back in the day. It can be found here.

    Fox never sent me Von Ryan's Express, much to my dismay.

    The consensus opinion on Von Ryan's Express Blu-ray is that it's terrible. IMO, it's more like mediocre, but generally, I'm more forgiving than some posters regarding video presentations.

    Luckily the 3 Doris Day titles are on region free blu from Germany so I was able to add them to my collection. I’d love to get Star! but I fear that ship may have sunk at the dock since the work wasn’t done on it before Disney bought Fox. Selfishly, I wish they had done the work on Star! before they did Doctor Dolittle. But I’m grateful for all the great transfers Fox put out. I just hope it’s not the end of the line for them.

    Family Business - good DVD release but cheap German Blu-Ray that doesn't even give me Widescreen; directed by Sidney Lumet and stars Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman and Matthew Broderick; father, son and grandson (yes, I know it's a tough sell to buy Dustin Hoffman as Sean Connery's son but somehow it works!) plan an armed robbery together in what I believe to be an under-rated black comedy/drama. Absolutely crying out for a comprehensive Criterion/Arrow release.

    Pacific Heights - directed by John Schlesinger and stars Michael Keaton, Matthew Modine and Melanie Griffith; Keaton plays a psychotic problem tenant to a young couple who have just bought their first home and spent thousands renovating it; set in San Francisco as the title implies and has all the wonderful cinematography you would expect from the guy who directed Midnight Cowboy. Very limited Fox DVD release and Korean DVD release that lacks Widescreen; thoroughly deserves the Arrow treatment.

    A favorite that will likely never see a home video release. Pity.

    SO many great choices that my wallet is now hiding in the closet, in case a lot of these come out at
    once. My hope is that the musicals and Biblical epics are Blu-Rayed first, but that's just me. Really,
    any of these titles would be more than welcome.

    We can hope that Disney will license many of these titles to Kino or Shout Factory once the home video divisions are consolidated.

    Even though it's tough going these days for historical or biblical movie fans, I'd love to see The Story of Ruth (H Koster), Esther and the King (R Walsh), Francis of Assisi (M Curtiz) and the elusive Sodom and Gomorrah (R Aldrich). Word was that Twilight Time had wanted to do Sodom but the materials at Fox were just too shoddy. A nice print must exist somewhere overseas as the German widescreen DVD by Black Hill of 2004 suggests. Anyone hear of foreign BD releases of any of these?
