    The 1953 film, "Niagara", I have always liked very much.
    And I just now noted on Amazon (and DDD too) that it's coming to DVD on May 14th! Hoo-ray!
    I'm betting the Falls look glorious after a DVD restoration!
    We can buy it for less than $15 too!
    Who else is fond of this little MM gem?

    Thank You Peter, for this tidbit.

    Didn't know there was a "Diamond 2" coming.

    Is "Don't Bother To Knock" in this collection, too (if you know)?

    I've always thought "Knock" and "Niagara" were two of MM's best [plus Misfits].

    Monkey Business

    Don't Bother to Knock

    Niagra

    River of No Return (WS)

    Let's Make Love (WS)

    The 1st 3 are properly Full Frame.

    The 1st Diamond had

    Gentelemen Prefer Blondes

    How to Marry a Millionare

    No Business Like Show Business

    Seve Year Itch

    Bus Stop

    Also out on DVD

    Misfits

    Some Like It Hot (movie only and SE)

    Prince and the Showgirl

    All About Eve (she has a minor role but looks incredible)

    Hometown Story is out from assorted companies since it is

    in the public domain. Very little Marilyn in it. Usually

    teamed up with a MM documentary.

    What I would like to see on DVD still is

    Ladies of the Chorus

    Asphalt Jungle

    Fox had released on VHS

    Let's Make it Legal

    O Henry's Full House

    both have only small amounts of MM

    I have been advocating the release of both Niagara and River of No Return as well and finally we will see them as they should be seen.
    We got a bonus 6th disc with the box set, wonder what the 6th one will be in the 2nd set?

    First time I've heard of that ("academy" ratio). Wow! A whopping 0.04 wider than full-screen!! I guess it doesn't matter much then. [​IMG]
