    Kentucky, Johnny Eager, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Sweet Bird of Youth, and Hud are on DVDs (or DVD-Rs) because I own them (and have reviewed some of them).

    Viva Zapata, The Barefoot Contessa, Lust for Life, Spartacus, and Topkapi are on Blu-ray as I own them (and have reviewed some of them).

    I'm not sure about the status of the others.

    Topkapi is a fun film to watch with a great score and i hope Hud will get it's overdue release on blu-ray soon since the dvd release was not the best.

    Thanks, everyone!

    It's a lot easier to ask the community here because they know if a title is on BD internationally or coming out soon, etc.

    And Amazon's search algorythm doesn't always show what you're looking for without some clicking around.

    As Bujaki said, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was in the Kazan at Fox vol 2 blu-ray release (along with Viva Zapata). Now sadly out of print.

    I understand it's not one of their best releases, which is too bad since Heflin's performance is truly excellent. i saw the film as a teen when it was revived in Puerto Rico and his performance has always stayed with me.
