    Elia Kazan directed several excellent movies but there are very few that have been placed on DVD. I would like to see more of this director's movies placed on DVD. These films in particular:

    Boomerang
    Pinky
    Panic in the Streets
    Viva Zapata
    Man on a Tightrope
    A Face in the Crowd
    Wild River

    Perhaps the Studios are still "Blacklisting" him.

    I would hope those studio's are not so immature as to still carry on the blacklisting of Kazan. That was in 1952. I know there are a few Hollywood pinheads, ie Nick Nolte and Ed Harris, that seem to have a misguided need to "stiff" Kazan, but I would think Fox would be more upright and release great movies in their vault. Kazan made some great movies, far better than many of the current crop coming out of the studio's these days.
