    I would love to see Kino tackle some of the Abbott and Costello catalog from Uni, also The Heiress - long overdue for Blu rediscovery, and Going My Way. Both of these latter flicks are Oscar-winners to varying degrees and such a shame they are MIA in hi-def. Deservedly in need of an upgrade.

    I would really love Tammy and the Bachelor, too - great Debbie Reynolds performance, and Sweet Charity - superb choreography from Bob Fosse. Deanna Durbin classics have also been sorely neglected - even on DVD we've yet to see a few materialize at all. Pipe dreams, me thinks - but dream, the dreamers of the world must. Where would we be without the dreamers? Indeed.

    I could never understand why "Going My Way" and "The Heiress"- and also "The Lost Weekend" , have not received blu-ray releases

    THE LOST WEEKEND is out on Blu in Europe. In fact, it is from Eureka! (Masters Of Cinema).

    I would LOVE to see The Inner Sanctum 6 films released on Bluray ! Made by Universal in 1943-1945 with Lon Chaney Jr.

    Yes, and maybe while they were at it , they could make it a Lon Chaney Jr tribute box set and add Man Made Monster.
    I'd also love t be able to buy the complete Captive Wild Woman series on BD

    Let me throw out a really obscure Universal title I'd love to see released. It's FAST CHARLIE...THE MOONBEAM RIDER, a Roger Corman production for Universal. It's an odd film for Corman. A light-hearted look at early 1900 motorcycle riders and the first long distance cycle race with stars David Carradine and Brenda Vaccaro. Also in the cast are L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, Terry Kiser, Jesse Vint and some cool antique motorcycles. It's directed by Steve Carver of BIG BAD MAMA and LONE WOLF MCQUADE. It's been years since I've seen it and would love to see a Blu-ray of this one.

    Errol Flynn Fans! Let us protest Universal for NOT RELEASING what is probably the ONLY FLYNN FEATURE THAT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED ON DVD or BLU-RAY as of this date: "ISTANBUL" (1957). I might ALSO ADD the fact that, ONLY AROUND 20 TITLES in the decade of 1950-60 FROM Universal-International, were made in the combination of TECHNICOLOR AND CINEMASCOPE !!! THIS FILM WAS ONE OF THOSE!

    RED SKY AT MORNING (1970) is another title that has never been released in any format, anywhere in the world.

    To my list, I'll add COLLEGE CONFIDENTIAL, another Mamie Van Doren/Albert Zugsmith all-star camp classic. That's another title that hasn't appeared on home video.
