    With the recent release of the stuck in public domain hell of BIRDS OF PARADISE...I was thinking of others I would like to see rescued....
    BORN TO WIN...this Ivan Passer film is as good as his revered CUTTERS WAY.
    THE HARRAD EXPERIMENT...a controversial film at its time of release...this is an interesting experiment.
    A GUNFIGHT...this. is a nice little western with a great cast
    EMBRYO...an unfairly thrashed film that was ahead of its time
    DEAR MR WOINDERFUL...Joe Pesci gave a great performance
    WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS...I watched this every time it aired
    I'm sure there are many others

    The first one that popped into my head: Life with Father. Oh, how splendid would that 3-strip Technicolor look with a proper restoration and on Blu-ray!

    I asked WAC on Facebook if they were considering this title for archive release since they had a history of doing PD titles right. They said that they do not have the rights to the film anymore. I agree a Blu would be splendid. All the PD DVD's look so washed out and I really wanted to see this title done right.

    Even the print that's shown on TCM occasionally looks wan. A real shame.

    One Eyed Jacks. The current BRDs are utter garbage and don't count. It is rumoured that The Hell With Heroes is PD. I don't know if that's true but it's certainly missing in action and I'd love to have it on BRD.

    How they even thought they could get away with such a subpar Blu of a great western is beyond comprehension. "SacreBlu!".
