    Thanks - good to know. I only have Region 1 DVD/Blu releases, however. Not sure if any other formats will play on my US player.

    These two both have blu-rays available. The Comfort of Strangers is I think region locked as Bob says but Light Sleeper is available on Amazon in a region free release from Australia.

    One film I’d like to see is OUR TOWN.

    It’ll be on TCM 31 Days of Oscar soon, it’s never been released and I think it’s PD.

    Any one know about this film?

    Lovely, affecting film with fine performances from its young and veteran cast. First-rate score.

    1976s HALF A HOUSE was nominated for Best Song Oscar...and vanished. Ive never seen it on TV and yet it had to have played in an L.A. theater at least one week to qualify for an Oscar. Truly MIA

    1990's MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON, directed by (of all people) Bob Rafelson is an amazing movie that seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth. The DVD was non-anamorphic and the non A-list Carolco library is festering somewhere in the Lionsgate vaults. An amazing movie that should have made Patrick Bergin a huge star. Same also goes for 1993's eerie THE MUSIC OF CHANCE, starring Mandy Patinkin, James Spader and M. Emmet Walsh that never had a DVD release.

    I'm a big Claudia Cardinale fan and one film of hers which has disappeared is Fury which co-starred Oliver Reed. This film has several different names but is missing in all of them! I'd have thought any film with both Claudia Cardinale and Oliver Reed would attract an audience so why has this film gone missing?

    Yes, I remember really LOVING Mountains of the Moon despite some really disturbing violence that took me by surprise. Haven't seen it since seeing it in the theater.

    I love this thread I started... I’ve about many obscure (and not so!) films listed! Great stuff! And it’s helping people
    Find films! Love it!
