Columbia have released a lot of their best back-catalog titles, but there are still a few titles without which my collection won't be complete. Any chance of the following next year?
Shampoo
California Split
The Go-Between
84 Charing Cross Road
The Chase

I would like to see the television library explored on DVD. Some anniversaries of some well-remembered Sony-owned shows are upon us:
2002:
Sanford and Son (30th)
Maude (30th)
Soap (25th)
Silver Spoons (20th)
Married with Children (15th)
2003:
Diff'rent Strokes (25th)
2004:
Bewitched (40th)
Good Times (30th)
Facts of Life (25th)
Punky Brewster (20th)
The Critic (10th)
2005:
I Dream of Jeannie (40th)
The Jeffersons (30th)
2006:
All in the Family (35th)
What's Happening (30th)
Designing Women (20th)
I think it would be worth it to take a gamble on these shows in DVD sets done right. Look at the phenomenal sales of Simpsons DVD sets from Fox. Some of these shows may have only esoteric appeal, but you can afford it.

BUT, don't rush them. Make sure that they retain the usual high quality and Anamorphic transfer that one expects from Columbia.
Thanks

Jay,
I'm completely baffled as to the lack of a DVD release of In Cold Blood. I saw a beautiful restoration of the film last year at the Motion Picture Academy Theater in Beverly Hills that was absolutely stunning and would assume that it was done in preparation for a future video/DVD release. But a year has gone by and no In Cold Blood.
It's too bad, because the discussion afterwards with Scott Wilson, Quincy Jones, Conrad Hall and a pre-controversy Robert Blake would have made a most excellent DVD supplement if someone had filmed it.

I would certainly add my vote for 'In Cold Blood' - a great film. I saw it a number of times in the late 60's and early 70's but haven't seen it since then - it's not been shown on TV in the UK for years. A DVD would be most welcome.

I second THE SWIMMER. Burt Lancaster's finest performance.
If Columbia doesn't have them, I have 16mm trailers (4) for THE SWIMMER, plus at least one for IN COLD BLOOD.

I agree the people voting for the HARRYHAUSEN films. These classics need to be released on DVD. Double features would be great.
MYSTERIOUS ISLAND first though

How about their HAMMER films. Most notably REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN. I wish they would license it to Anchor Bay.
Also please continue with the classic Westerns. There are some very good gems in the Columbia vaults (TALL T, JUBAL, etc.)
