    Great suggestions.
    I would love to see Guns for San Sebastián and Ryan’s Daughter available to us.

    A great list. From it I'll definitely be down for Captain Blood, The Harvey Girls and The Pajama Game (or, as we would say, The PYJAMA Game), and consider several others depending on whether we want to travel to Venice next year or not. Priorities.....

    For television (if that's all right), I'll guess

    Jamie Fox season 5
    Step By Step (remaining seasons)
    Jayna of the Jungle
    Hanging with Mr. Cooper seasons 4 and 5
    Adventures of Gulliver
    The Rounders
    Colt 45
    Wildfire (animated)
    Goldie Gold and Action Jack
    Fangface

    Thought I’d mention this here - the latest Warner Archive podcast is interesting listening. Amongst other topics they discuss some behind the scenes manufacturing problems that changed their plans for the year as well as the issue of some retailers not getting releases on street date when others do...

    More Errol Flynn (especially Captain Blood, The Charge of the Light Brigade, and Gentleman Jim)
    Spite Marriage (if Criterion didn't get it when they licensed The Cameraman)
    The rest of the Thin Man series
    Kings Row (1942)
    The Great Ziegfeld (1936)
    Good News (1947)
    Three Little Words (1950)
    The Big Sky (1952)
    Gunga Din (1939)
    7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1963)
    Many Rivers to Cross (1955)
    Advance to the Rear (1964)
    The Merry Widow (1934)
    The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944)
    The Strawberry Blonde (1941)
    Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939)
    China Seas (1935)
    San Francisco (1936)
    The Roaring Twenties (1939)
    Ben-Hur (1925) - the "extra" included with the 1959 set doesn't count since it is SD
    Don Juan (1926)
    Show Boat (1929)

    One special request - Whoopee! (1930) from the Goldwyn catalog. From what I have read, this is one of the only two-color Technicolor films that has survived with its camera negative intact. If this negative is still usable, this film could look as good as the recent "King of Jazz" restoration.

    I'm a bit more optimistic, I predict (maybe) one from mine.

    I wonder if Mystery Of The Wax Museum (1933) is a possibility? The caps from the UCLA Film Archives restoration look mightily impressive, I'd love a Blu-ray of that one. It's a really fun film, & nice to see Fay Wray sans big ape.

    Silents, silents and then more silents! So many were released in the early WAC days maybe I got spoiled. But aren't there a number of unreleased classics all restored, with new scores? They do seem to have fallen by the wayside.

    Well, Mr. Feltenstein said in the 12/24 podcast that the next year would see WAC releases from "all decades." Well, I doubt that the first two would ever show up, but hopefully at least a couple from the 20's will (hint, hint...THE WIND, THE CROWD, GREED).

    If they are kind enough to release Land of the Pharaohs, Scaramouche or the 1925 Ben-Hur I'd be jumping for joy. There were rumblings months ago over at NitrateVille that The Wind and/or The Crowd might be coming from WB. Not holding my breath for any of these however based of the Archive's track record.

    A few years back , Colt 45 seemed like a sure thing , but some "rights issues" delayed (and cancelled?) it's release . Is it possible this could be released ? It's the last classic WB western not released by WAC.
    I think we'll finally see some MGM Elvis Presley movies on BD .
    Attack Of the 50 Foot Woman .
    And no hope for the much coveted Warner Brothers detective shows .

    If it's true there will be releases from all decades, there must be a chance for Scaramouche (the re-make with Stewart Granger) which I watched on DVD last night. By releasing Moonfleet on Blu-ray disc, Warner Archive have shown they are aware of Mr. Granger's potential in swashbuckling period pieces.
