    Out of the list posted above (hopefully they are released), the pick of the titles for me are Badge 323 (1973), The Hangman (1959), Man on a Swing (1974) (not a fan of Joel Grey, but have liked the films and TV shows I've seen Cliff Robertson in), The Slender Thread (1965), Something to Live For (1952) (Ray Milland in the cast), The Spirit is Willing (1967) (the cast, and William Castle as director) and Too Late Blues (1961).

    Both releases of the long-overdue The Buccaneer would be pretty sweet. I hope this is a sign of Olive digging deeper into the Paramount library

    Great selection of films. With such a large list though I'm kind of disappointed that The Keep isn't among them. I'm starting to think maybe that film has music rights issues or something.
    1900 being listed but not The Conformist leads me to believe that Criterion probably picked that film up. Also, several Byron Haskin films but not I Walk Alone - Criterion probably grabbed that as well.
    I hope in the next batch they include some of these:
    Hell's Island (1955)
    The Scarlet Hour (1956)
    Short Cut to Hell (1957)
    Wild is the Wind (1957)
    Isabel (1968)
    Waterloo (1970)
    The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974)
    Citizens Band a.k.a. Handle with Care (1977)
    1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992)

    1900 was previously released on DVD in its uncut form on DVD.

    Nice to see the rest of Jerry Lewis's films listed and The Sterile Cuckoo. The two The Buccaneer films are also a plus. But no Looking For Mr. Goodbar or Samson And Delilah, hopefully Criterion has them.

    I second Duddy Kravitz and Citizen's Band. And I also add Rough Cut (1980) and The Outsider (1979).

    I'm hoping Samson and Delilah and The Greatest Show on Earth are among the next Blu-rays from Paramount. I know nothing, mind you, I'm just hoping that comes to pass. I have been so impressed with what they've been doing with vault titles on Blu.

    Does Paramount hold the rights to Rough Cut? I'd be all over that in a heartbeat!

    Paramount does hold the rights to Rough Cut but I believe the rights to I Walk Alone are among the Paramount titles now controlled by Universal.
    The list is mouth watering but I'm not holding my breath until Olive makes an "official" announcement and release dates.

    The first pairing of Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas was shown for the first time on TCM about a couple of months ago. I wish they can release it on DVD like they've done some other Universal titles.

    I think I Walk Alone is among the few pre-1950 Paramount tiles that still belong to Paramount. It's listed as part of their library here while other films that are now owned by Universal are not.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the first list of titles that Olive acquired, but this list is even more outstanding. I immediately see 18 titles I would like and another 6 or so that I am on the fence about. I hope they release them quicker that the every two or three months they did the last batch. It excites me is that every title from the last batch I got, except Hurry Sundown, was top notch with The Mountain being a terrific transfer, so I expect nothing less with these titles.

    Great selection. I'll get all the fifities titles. No Man of her own and Something to live for were on my wish list since...ever! I hope the absence of The File on Thelma Jordon means Criterion is actually working on it!
    Some titles that I hope Olive can get its hands on:
    - September Affair
    - Let's Dance;
    - Mr. Music
    - Paid in Full
    - Peking Express
    - Submarine Command
    - The Mating Season
    - Red Mountain
    - Darling, how could you
    - Somebody loves you
    - Botany Bay
    - Here come the girls
    - Little Boy Lost
    - Forever Female
    - Strategic Air Command
    - Lucy Gallant
    - Vagabond King
    - But not for me

    Interesting combination of first-timers and previously-released-on-DVD titles. I'm aware Olive cannot create their own supplements, but I wonder if they are allowed to port extras Paramount already created, such as the interviews on their previous 1900 release?

    Some of these (like UPTIGHT) can be viewed on Netflix Instant.
