    Last year we had four great JF releases: The Iceman Cometh, Andersonville, Black Sunday, and The Horsemen. This year, all we've got is The Manchurian Candidate: SE. I'm very pleased with that news, but there's a bunch of important Frankenheimer films that aren't on DVD yet, that really need to see the light of day. I'm about to start buying these on VHS, since I really need to see them. So, if anyone has any news about the following, I'd love to hear it, either here or on my Yahoo Group (see below).

    The Young Stranger
    The Young Savages
    All Fall Down
    Grand Prix (This Really Needs A 2-Disc Special Edition)
    The Fixer
    I Walk the Line (This doesn't even have a VHS release!)
    The Impossible Object
    99&44/100% Dead
    The Challenge
    52 Pick-Up
    The Fourth War
    Against the Wall
    The Burning Season
    George Wallace

    Finally, how about all those tremendous Playhouse 90 live television dramas? If anything in the world deserves a box set, these do.

    I agree Fredric. More should be out. It is too bad we can't have his commentaries any more.

    I sure wish Warners would release 'Grand Prix"
    Yes it would make a great two disc set!

    Hi Fredric,

    Couldn't agree more, although for the multi region fans amongst you, it's worth noting that THE YOUNG STRANGER and AGAINST THE WALL are both available in respectable Region 2 DVDs in Europe.

    Thanks Sergio,

    After posting this, I went to amazon.co.uk and discovered that very thing. Still would be nice for America to get on the ball. [​IMG]
