    Solid list of titles, as always, Pete. From your list, I'd love to see...

    Shout at the Devil
    Man of the West
    Beach Red
    99 River Street
    The Woman In The Window
    Canon City

    BTW, Kansas City Confidential was released by Image Entertainment. If MGM could produce a better looking disc ( the current one isn't anything to write home about - serviceable at best ) I'd double-dip.

    - Walter.

    Red Sonja ( 16:9 Widescreen , maybe with extras?)
    Stay Hungry (16:9 Widescreen)
    F.I.S.T. (16:9 Widescreen)
    New York, New York (16:9 Widescreen Director's Cut)
    Crusin' ( 1980 Pacino/ Friedkin 16:9 Widescreen)
    The Offence (1973 Connery 16:9 Widescreen)
    A Fistfull of Dynamite (16:9 Widescreen uncut SE)
    Cincinnati Kid ( Steven McQueen (16:9 Widescreen)


    I too would like a Raging Bull SE disc.

    I would also like to say that I am not happy with the recent announcement of many new fullscreen discs! It is good that they have changed their mind on some of them, but why not all of them?

    My sentiments exactly, Walter. I, too, have the Image disc, and would gladly double-dip for MGM's better print (as I did with HE WALKED BY NIGHT, though I had it already on a Roan Group DVD), saving the Image DVD for its supplements.

    As long as we've got MGM looking for films to release on DVDs, I'd like to have these two:
    THE MAID (1991) with Martin Sheen
    THE WEDDING BANQUET (1993)
    Someone at the forum told me M G M owned them now.

    I'll support the requests for New York New York and Thieves Like Us. Both of these are way overdue for DVD release.

    Mr. Pytel, don't bet on an MGM release of "Red Sonja". It's yet another MGM title owned by Warner. Ask them instead.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    I'd like "Red Sonja" on DVD. Brigitte Nielsen's a babe...I'm more of a Sandahl Bergman person,though.
