    I watched the DVD "20th Century Fox: The First 50 years" last night and I began getting nostalgic about some of the classic and historically important films in the Fox library. If these films are important enough to mention as milestones of Fox's history, then I think they should be important enough to preserve and transfer to DVD's.
    The classic films in your library featured in the documentary that I would love to see in my DVD collection include:
    Les Miserables (1935)
    Young Mr. Lincoln
    The Story of Alexander Graham Bell
    The Grapes of Wrath
    In Old Chicago
    Blood and Sand
    Down Argentine Way
    The Gang's All Here
    Tin Pan Alley
    Stormy Weather
    That Night in Rio
    The Song of Bernadette
    Laura
    Lifeboat
    Wilson
    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
    Anna and the King of Siam
    My Darling Clementine
    Kiss of Death
    Nightmare Alley
    Pinky
    The Snake Pit
    Sitting Pretty
    Call Northside 777
    A Letter to Three Wives
    I Was a Male War Bride
    The Egyptian
    The Day the Earth Stood Still
    Monkey Business
    Niagara
    River of No Return
    Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter
    A Farewell to Arms (Rock Hudson)
    Desk Set
    The Sun Also Rises (1957)
    The Long, Hot Summer
    Peyton Place
    The Three Faces of Eve
    Compulsion
    The Young Lions
    Can-Can
    The Diary of Anne Frank
    The Hustler
    Zorba the Greek
    Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte
    The Agony and the Ecstasy
    Hello, Dolly!
    MASH
    And these were only the films that were featured in the documentary.

    P.S. Thanks again for the anamorphic transfers. The quality is so superior. And since you were the first to give us Cinemascope, your releases of these films should be the best.

    Welcome to the forum. [​IMG]
    However you want to post this in the Studio Feedback department. Peter Staddon of 20th Century Fox posts there.
    Hes a real nice guy. Also go to chat transcripts at the top of the HTF home page and read the transcripts from a chat we had with him a couple weeks ago. He talks about a few of those titles on your list.
    Expect MASH befiore the end of the year as well as Day the Earth Stood Still and Hustler early next year. I cant remember about the rest on your list.
    Good Luck
    Matt

    Welcome to THE Forum Neil!
    I would like to add a couple more Fox titles if I may. Those being:
    GHOST IN THE MACHINE (1993)
    THE GHOST AND MRS MUIR
    VITAL SIGNS
    SIX PACK
    I don't know whether these would be classed as classics, but they would make cool DVD's and I'm sure sell well enough to make them worthwhile releases.
