"Vacation 1 (Widescreen)" has already been announced. It's probably up for preorder at various e-tailers if you look around.

Cocoon is definately coming before the end of this year. I expect it and Cocoon 2 to be announced within the next couple of months...it may even be down to weeks.

Maude is under consideration per a poll that Sony conducted recently on behalf of their subsidiary, Columbia/Tristar.

Rhoda and Phyllis are both spinoffs of Mary Tyler Moore Show. MTMS's season 1 DVD sales were described by a producer as "a staggering disappointment". So MTMS future seasons have been put on hold. I imagine that this doesn't bode well for the spin-offs, either.

Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore will probably be coming out in the 4th quarter along withe the other Scorcese films Warner owns.

Shock is public domain, I'm surprised a cheap company hasn't released it yet (maybe Alpha will).

The Desperate Hours is available for pre-order.

The Grapes of Wrath is currently being worked on for 2004 release.

Alien is also out in a 'special edition' format in the Legacy Box Set. That is to say it has enough groovy extras like a (great) directors commentary, isolated stage sound, score only soundtrack, deleted scenes etc...

Actually come to think of it, it's one of my favourite DVD's. Good Job, Scott & co! :D

I own Schindlers List too.

Is there something I should know about my DVD's? ;)

I have a R0 PAL version from Control Productions.

The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald / The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde (Image/Something Weird) is to be released in November of this year according to Mondo Digital.

It's almost impossible to believe that one of the most popular TV programs in the history of the medium, The Andy Griffith Show, has not seen a major, top-notch, seasonal DVD release.

TAGS is a show that has never left the airwaves since its premiere in 1960.

Although, come to think of it, perhaps the above statement is a reason why it's not on DVD today (other than in lesser-quality "best of" public domain releases).

I refuse to believe that TAGS will remain DVD-less for too much longer.

Neither has Seinfeld - what makes the absence of Andy so tough to believe?

Purely selfish answer ..... Because I want Andy! :D

Plus the fact that TAGS has had a fanbase that's been around four times as long as Seinfeld's.

(Couldn't care less about a Seinfeld DVD product however.)

I have One Eyed Jacks, so it must be on DVD. It's a region free put out by Digital Video Dreams. Bought it over at EBay. I will mention that it wouldn't play on one of my players, so I had to watch it on another player in another room. Played fine there. Both of the DVD players were Toshibas, but different models.

I'm really happy to hear Grand Hotel mentioned twice. I love that film and would buy it in a heartbeat.

Nope.
Can't buy that now.
OOP.
So's the Legacy set - none of the Alien releases remain in print. You can still BUY any/all of them though - just not as easily as if they were in print.

None of this invalidates the fact that the Alien disc in the Legacy package is the same one that's available on its own.

(Didn't actually realize all these were OOP until this thread - guess they've been dropped because of the upcoming "Quadrilogy"...)

From TVSHOWSONDVD.COM............

We've added a news item for "West Wing, The" to the site. Here it is:

West Wing coming - 8:02 PM 4/22/2003
From the Home Theater Forum chat with Warner Bros:
When Warner Bros was asked if "The West Wing" was coming on DVD they said it was in the works. No other information was available.

The 14 Rathbone/Bruce Holmes films are coming from MPI starting in September at a rate of 2 films per month. There was a thread about this recently.

I agree with you on "Hush...Hush" and "Mr. Hobbs". Those are great flicks.
