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.

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.
