I just bought that 1949 Little women on iTunes for $4.99 so expect that to be announced immediately!
It would be interesting if WAC released the complete series of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (yes, there was a TV adaptation), with a young Richard Dean Anderson and a younger River Phoenix. A few years ago, some TV channel was airing reruns of the show, so the people who run WB's library department are probably aware that the show exists. All that matters is if the quality is up to par or it needs to be remastered.
Here's the theme song. I feel like the composer saw the title and thought that this was a sequel to The Magnificent Seven!
I hope 2020 brings some Classic Movie titles from my Wish List from WBArchive. 2019 I only added 1 wish list movie title ... Days of Wine and Roses. The other 4 titles were Animated titles. Popeye Vol.2 and 3, The Jetsons, and Jonny Quest.
While I definitely want those (and ANY of the other Fred Astaire musicals that Warner owns), I would be surprised to see more than one of Fred's films released in one year, given Warner's history of how they have been releasing his films on Blu-ray (not to mention the overall variety of musicals). Seriously WHV only released 2 of his films on Blu-ray (3 if we include their release of the Paramount film Funny Face when they still had the license), and WAC only released 2 over a period of two years (and haven't released any since Finian's Rainbow in 2017). Again, I hope I am wrong, as I would be very quick to buy them (and encourage them to release more)!
I'd love Three little Words but I'm really holding out for Judy/Gene in For Me and my Gal.
Same here, only The Bad & The Beautiful off my list last year.
Some people complain and act like WAC is just suppose to cater to their personal taste in movies. Just to name some titles, I had a great year of 2019 WAC releases because I like movies across different genres and film decades:
A Patch of Blue
The Thin Man
The Bad and the Beautiful
The World, the Flesh and the Devil
Popeye (Volumes 2 &3)
I bought all but three of those in your list plus some others and I'm pleased and/or delighted with every one of them! Warner Archive is my favorite Blu-ray label.
I agree that 2019 was a great year for WAC releases.
I have discovered so many great films I never watched before.
My favorites were The Set-up, Footlight Parade and The Bad and the Beautiful.
Of course, Warner put out one of my all-time favorite films, The Prisoner of Second Avenue last May in a stunning new transfer.
So, yeah, great year!
Well I've tried buying important classic movies because I think I should own them (& a good few of those released by WAC last year), but I've given up on that, it's just junking myself up, like having rows of books that you know you'll never read. So this year it's...someone releases a film I like & want, I'll buy it & be very grateful, other than that...pass, but I promise, no complaining.
Well, that's fair enough and I don't think anyone is going to suggest you buy discs you don't want. Perhaps I'm just lucky. Warner Archive keep releasing films I want on modestly-priced Blu-ray discs! I assure everyone I watch them all again and again. They do not sit on a shelf gathering dust!
Yes 2019 and 2018 were great years for WAC on Blu Ray. 2 of their best years.
put me down for these. Good choices!
Of course High Society is MGM, suddenly hopeful for a blu ray.
Captain Blood ! ....I wish ! It's Long over due on Bluray. Just 3 Flynn titles from WB ! R Hood, Dodge, & Sea Hawk. ??? : ( WHY ???? That's what I would like to know.
Ha, I wouldn't buy Captain Blood, but I'd buy They Died With Their Boots On, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, Gentleman Jim & The Master of Ballantrae in a heartbeat.
I really enjoyed all the Hanna-Barbera DVDs that were out in 2019...
Jonny Quest (Blu-Ray)
Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har-Har
The Jetsons (Blu-Ray)
Therefore, I do hope WAC will continue to put out more new Hanna-Barbera releases on DVD and Blu-Ray this year!
Curse of Frankenstein would be great.
Since we are trying to predict some of WAC's releases for the coming year, I should throw this thought out there. It seems like they have hinted at potential future releases with similar titles in the past. For a few quick examples, in 2017, they released Auntie Mame (which seemed to hint at Mame coming a year later) and The Sea Wolf (which, given its history, seemed to predict The Sea Hawk coming in late 2018), and in 2018, we got Two Weeks In Another Town (which seemed to predict the recent release of The Bad And The Beautiful). While it's obviously not a guarantee (especially since I noticed it and am throwing this out there), do we think any of last year's releases are hinting at what is to come this year? The closest I can think of (again, I'm just guessing here) would be Summer Stock predicting either The Pirate (although that seems unlikely given that George Feltenstein mentioned in the podcast on Summer Stock that that movie would have to sell for them to go forward on The Pirate, and the announcement of Summer Stock was not a well-received one) or For Me And My Gal, or another potential prediction might be Cleopatra Jones maybe predicting its sequel. Again, these are just my thoughts. Anyone else have any ideas?
Ha, pretty much impossible to second guess any WAC releases, but I'd be surprised if we didn't get Up Periscope this year. WAC have released a few 'scope war movies, Battle Cry, Merrill's Marauders, The Naked & The Dead, & this would be a continuation of that...but I wouldn't put any money on it
