    I've limited this list to English-language films not yet released on DVD by the owning studios (of course, as One-Eyed Jacks is a public domain title, it has appeared in numerous poor-quality transfers on low-price labels, which can safely be ignored).

    If all these appear during 2005, I'll think I've died and gone to Heaven. But I'll dare to hope that at least half of them will appear!

    Paramount

    Ace In The Hole (Wilder)
    If... (Anderson)
    One-Eyed Jacks (Brando)

    Columbia

    The Go-Between (Losey)

    Fox

    Julia (Zinneman)

    Warner

    Fedora (Wilder)
    Point Blank (Boorman)
    Reflections In A Golden Eye (Huston)
    Lust For Life (Minnelli)
    Prince Of The City (Lumet)

    MGM

    Thieves Like Us (Altman)

    Universal

    Taking Off (Forman)

    I'd love to see a new Blade Runner release. How about a nice Theatrical & Director cut 2 disc with lots of extras.
