    Those early Deanna Durbin films would make a nice boxed set. Just sayin’. :D

    So many possibilities. I'm particularly hoping for a bunch of '30s Paramount WC Fields and Mae West titles that have long been missing in action.

    Could also be Mr Peabody and the Mermaid or The Senator Was Indiscreet both late 1940s Universal titles.

    So many good William Powell titles that it would be hard for me to pick one I was really hoping to see as part of this deal. Other than The Great Ziegfeld that I wasn't crazy about (And which isn't Universal, so isn't part of the deal), I love them all.

    Too bad that I Love You Again and Love Crazy are MGM instead of Universal. I've never seen people talk about these, but I can't imagine that other fans of William Powell and Myrna Loy don't also love those two films like I do.

    The Ex-Mrs. Bradford would be another on my long wish list as a fan of William Powell (And Jean Arthur), but I believe that's RKO. Not as up on who owns what as some are, but I imagine that it would have to be a Warner Archive release if it were to happen and isn't something Kino Lorber has access to. And like most RKO classics, what's archived probably isn't in the best of condition for it.

    I'm thinking the latter. Mr. Peabody has already been released on Blu-ray.

    KL, does the Universal deal include some debuts (as in never on DVD) as opposed to blu ray upgrades? Not asking for any specific titles.

    I would love to know this as well, because one title I am hoping for is exactly that, a never been released.

    Universal is still keeping the last four seasons of the Hitchcock TV series on the shelf, so I'd be thrilled if they were part of the deal (though I'm guessing not).

    This is such a great question. Besides Where Do We Go From Here, I'd love to see proper US blu ray releases of Alan Ladd's The Great Gatsby as well as the Deanna Durbin films Christmas Holiday and (especially) Spring Parade.

    However I hold out no hope for the now-problematic Dixie, which was Bing Crosby's big starring film released between Holiday Inn and Going My Way.

    I am wondering why Season 6 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents is now hard to find. Once in a while, copies will turn up on Ebay, however the asking prices are way too high. I haven't even found it lately on Amazon. Seasons 1-5 are still around. Universal hasn't even released a Region 1 of Season 7 yet or The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. Does anyone know the status of this?

    Season 6 as I recall was a MOD release by Universal wasn't it?
