    I was rewatching A Personal Journey Through American Film With Martin Scorsese and Bigger Than Life is one of the films that stood out to me the most as a "must see" that isn't on DVD yet.

    thanks

    I'll second this one - the film wasn't done on laserdisc as far as I recall, so it would be good to have a great DVD transfer preserving Ray's memorably vivid use of colour.

    Yes, but wasn't it made for MGM?

    Amazon doesn't even list a VHS so my only info comes from IMDB which lists Fox as both the producing and distributing company. Ray's The True Story of Jesse James made the following year is also listed as a 20th Century Fox Film. Though that same year he also made Party Girl which is listed as MGM.

    Party Girl! Now there's a movie I'd really like to have on DVD. Unfortunately, Warners will have the DVD rights to this one, so we might be waiting for quite a while.
