    Michael- Thanks for the additional updates! I hope that Fireball 500/ Thunder Alley & Mini Skirt Mob/ Chrome And Hot Leather are in their OAR. I believe Fireball 500 was never released on video. Don't know about the other three titles but I'm sure the cheese factor is high which makes them a sure bet!

    The 'Cherokee Kid' mentioned came out in 1996, not the 1927 version. This one stars Sinbad.

    We almost forgot Charly (1968) on March 8th, the great feature that earned Cliff Robertson a Best Actor Oscar [​IMG]

    Also Panic in the Streets and House of Bamboo will have a release of March 15th by Fox

    Thanks Eric for all your suggestions.

    I am absolutely interested in John Ford's Arrowsmith & all Fox SC plus many others.

    Just too much coming out at once that's the only thing stopping me

    I tried to locate 'What A Way To Go' over at Deep Discount DVD but I can't find it. Where am I messing up? I really want this one. It is one of those movies I could watch over and over. What a great all star cast too!!!!

    Randi - I would not be too concerned - yet - as the official release date is Jan.11 which you no doubt are aware of and some titles just do not get released earlier. Tried getting it myself but was able to snag King Solomon's Mines and Ice Station Zebra - I'll be watching one of them tonight. Had to pass on Random Harvest until later. I'm still working on buying the Twilight Zone Definitive Collection - expensive but worth it. Thanks again everyone for the continuing updates as I knew quite a few were missed. I am really interested in alot of them but thought Satan Never Sleeps sounds like a good film - stars William Holden as a missionary who ends up fleeing communist troops that pursue them as they try to escape mainland China. If anyone can supply some more info on it that would be great. I would assume the OAR is 2:35.

    It seems like many of the on-line retailers are having difficulty updating their preorder listing with many of these titles. I wonder if the studios are giving them incomplete dvd release listings?
