    Maybe it isn't effective lumping over a dozen titles, representing many studios, into one post, but here goes:

    TREE OF THE WOODEN CLOGS (Italy) Released on VHS & Laser
    CRIA! (Spain) Released on Laser by Image
    SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE (Spain)Released on VHS by Home Vision
    ALLEGRO NON TROPPO (Italy) Released on VHS by Home Vision
    NIGHT OF THE SHOOTING STARS (Italy) Released on VHS by MGM
    FORBIDDEN GAMES (France)
    GATE OF HELL (Japan)
    FIRES ON THE PLAIN (Japan) Released on laser by Criterion
    BURNT BY THE SUN (Russia) - Columbia
    IN WHICH WE SERVE (UK, released on laser by Criterion)
    TIGHT LITTLE ISLAND (aka WHISKEY GALORE) - Ealing, UK
    A HIGH WIND IN JAMAICA (UK, never released on video at all)
    IN WHICH WE SERVE (UK, rfeleased on laser by Criterion)
    WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND (UK, released on VHS by Embassy)

    ...and that's just the tip of the iceberg, but these are all major, great or near-great titles so far not on DVD.

    The title I'm really waiting impatiently for is 'The Conformist' (owned by Paramount). Martin Blythe told us some time ago that he expected it would be released in 2003. Can you give us an update on the status of this one, Martin?

    I'd love to see Forbidden Games, Fires on the Plain, and Gate of Hell again. Hook us up with the DVDs...
