    Peter's comprehensive lists are always top-notch. I would
    just add one additional noir: Slattery's Hurricane.

    Probably my number one Fox Scope stereo film want is Untamed (1955) starring Susan Hayward and Tyrone Power.
    wonderful film, great location shooting, great stereo sound, one of the best film scores by Franz waxman. In the U.S. the film has never been shown letterbox and this film begs to be shown in the original 2:55 to 1 ratio.
    Other early great scope films never shown in widescreen that should be released:
    1. Prince of Players
    2. The Best Things in life are Free
    3. april love
    4. A Certain Smile

    We also need
    1. The Virgin Queen
    2. With a Song in My Heart
    3. Soldier of Fortune
    4. Garden of evil (in 4.0 stereo, PLEASE !!!)
    5. The View from Pompeys Head
    6. Womans World

    Much like Peter Fitzgerald, I've been waiting since Aug 2002 for:
    THE FLIM-FLAM MAN (1967) and
    THE GUNFIGHTER (1950)
    as well as and assuming Fox owns this last one.
    WHO IS HARRY KELLERMAN AND WHY IS HE SAYING THOSE TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT ME (1971)
    Can I add another one?
    VIVA ZAPATA (1952) with Marland Brando

    So far, out of the ones I'm really looking for, we have gotten the remainder of the Planet Of The Apes movies. Pretty good job. Now if you could just come thru on MRS DOUBTFIRE and TRUE LIES and BROKEN ARROW. I heard rumblings about TRUE LIES last year, what happened with that title?

    I would like to see the following:

    THE ROBE-do this one right! It's one of the most famous titles in the Fox library, and there are all kinds of extras regarding CinemaScope that they could put on here!

    TRUE LIES-most definitely needs a SE.

    CAPTAIN FROM CASTILE-FMC has sound dropouts-drives me nuts!

    Silent films: 7TH HEAVEN (from MOMA), STREET ANGEL, FOUR SONS, WHAT PRICE GLORY?, LUCKY STAR.

    THE BIG TRAIL-the Grandeur version exists, was shown on AMC (RIP!)-why is it not on DVD?

    Classics: SUNNY SIDE UP, PILGRIMAGE, SITTING PRETTY, THE GANG'S ALL HERE, CLUNY BROWN, WILSON.

    The silent films could be done like the Will Rogers and Chan sets-put out a box set and get them to us!

    I'm new to the forum and come from Australia.One of my past lives was manager of our local cinema from 1967 to 1975 a childhood ambition I finally achieved.My interest in the movies first came during the late 40's and into the 50's and 60's mainly through my interest in the early cinemascope productions mainly made by fox.Many of the early scope movies from the 50's and 60's have been released by fox and I have been able to add these to my collection.Sadly though there are still many of the early cinemascope productions still not yet released on DVD.I am particlarly interested in the Pat Boone movies APRIL LOVE,BERNARDINE,MARDI GRAS and ALL HANDS ON DECK.I would like to see fox release these on DVD. They have played on the fox movie channel here in Australia some years ago.I would also like to see some of the fox movietone cinemascope shorts released on DVD.These shorts were filmed throughout the world and were on many diverse topics.Many of course would now be dated but that doesn't matter to movie enthusiasts like me.I'd like to see fox release some of these as extras on their DVD's from this era just like warner video do with their release of the old MGM musicals with traveltalks,cartoons and short subjects. These add value to those releases and give the purchaser a complete movie programme from that era.So come on fox how about it.Has anybody else an interest similar to mine?As a passing thought fox of course is now run by an Australian in Rupert Murdoch

    Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure.

    Amazon.com lists Fox as the VHS distributor, so I'm guessing they also have DVD rights. This is a wonderful animated film directed by Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit's animation director). It's somewhat episodic, but charming and eye-catching (especially the psychedelic color) with some really catchy music by Joe Raposo. It was filmed in Panavision, which means it has always been in pan & scan on video. I'd love to see a remastered 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen DVD from Fox. Perhaps with a Richard Williams commentary?

    Holy Matrimony

    Fox has never released this to video. However, I'm told it's absolutely funny. It stars Monty Wooley and was written by Nunnally Johnson. The screenplay was nominated for an Oscar. I'd love to finally see this film!

    Sunrise

    Yeah, I know the limited edition is out there, but why not finally give it a real release? It's such an important and excellent film. If needed, perhaps contained in a Janet Gaynor collection?

    I'd be a buyer of the following:

    1.Rio Conchos

    In addition, the below titles released on Fox's video subsidiary Playhouse:

    1.Count of Monte Cristo, The-Richard Chamberlain
    2.Man In The Iron Mask, The-Richard Chamberlain
    3.Quarterback Princess
    4.Warriors, The (Dark Avenger)-Errol Flynn

    Finally, released on Fox's Key Video: Les Miserables (Richard Jordan), but not at the chopped length of the Lion's Gate disc.

    I'd like to thank Fox Home Video forcontracting with Anchor Bay for the release of the semi-obscure tv movie The Norliss Tapes. It's the kind of material that might easily have never seen the light of day again.

    And, while it's too late for 2006, I would ask whether Fox Home Video management has considered the release of the final episodes of Son of the Beach for 2007. It seems as though it's never going to come out. (Volume One came out in 2000.)

    The series is too hilarious to be lost forever.
