    Could be Hammer's She (1965) this year, get a bit of synergy going with all these Hammer announcements, & maybe sell a few copies.

    Now that Modern Family is coming to an end, perhaps WB should revisit that show, and if the retail blu-rays weren't profitable enough, maybe they would consider releasing seasons 5 onward as part of the Warner Archive, where they can keep a tighter grip on inventory and pricing?

    I refuse to buy any seasons on DVD. If my collection of this show has to end with season 4, so be it.

    Modern Family is actually a Fox show, so that would be up to Disney now.

    Ha, case closed then. I love this show, Sky (UK) has it on repeat all the time & I record & watch them. I must have seen each episode about ten times. The perfect sit-com featuring the legendry Ed O'Neill.

    Ah, yes. I don't know why I had in my head that Warner released them.

    i get it, not a request, just speculation of the many wonderful titles that Warner, has that could be released, well some sign of hope, That Tex Avery set is forthcoming, i hope to see many surprises this year, maybe they will shock all of us and upgrade some of the Samuel Goldwyn titles if possible.

    As far as the Goldwyn titles are concerned, the Archive is apparently reissuing Guys and Dolls next month, so that seemingly confirms that Warner’s license for the Goldwyn library is still good. Dodsworth apparently got a new restoration so we should hopefully see that getting a release soon and we can hope that more of the Goldwyns get released (my primary want from that library is Wuthering Heights).

    While I definitely agree that WAC's upcoming reissue of Guys And Dolls bodes well for the possibility of WAC releasing some Goldwyns, I still feel like it's a longshot (and I still forget it when it comes to any of the 30s Goldwyns). After all, if the Goldwyn library is supposedly in bad shape (at least, that's what it seems like I've heard a number of times here on this forum), and WAC is VERY reluctant to release any of their own 30s films (four years between 42nd Street and their next 30s film, plus RAH claiming all four were "full restorations"), so I just can't see it happening. That being said, they've been proving me wrong on a number of things, so maybe! Although, it is likely to be a while if it does happen, since it took nearly a year between their re-release of Meet In St. Louis and their first Judy Garland/pre-1954 MGM musical release of Summer Stock, and we still haven't seen anything further for 3D films after their re-releases of Kiss Me Kate and Dial M For Murder last September.

    A handful of classic musicals (which I'll probably buy), a bunch of low budget kitschy horror movies (a very few I might buy) and mainly more modern stuff (I probably won't buy). Just no surprises as usual.

    The Goldwyn title I would be particularly interested in would be a remaster of "Whoopee." Yes, WAC already put out a DVD-r from an older master, but this film is one of only a handful of two-color Technicolor movies to survive in its camera negative. A restoration of this film has the potential to look as spectacular as the recent "King of Jazz" restoration. However, I realize that this film isn't likely high up on Warner's priority list.

    We must remember that Warner does not own these films but but has a lease arrangement with the Samual Goldwyn Estate. I’m not sure that Warner’s would spring the money to upgrade these titles. The Guys and Dolls Blu-ray is just a re-release of their original re-release of the MGM release
