    Would love to see one of my all-time guilty pleasures, SONG OF NORWAY, released on Blu (or even DVD).

    SPACECAMP (1986) is in my top 5 most wanted Blurays ever. :(
    I had watched a VHS recorded from TV many times during my childhood!

    But of course, if it was the ABC library, to tell you the truth there are much more films that I'm interested in from Columbia and Warner.

    Me too. Twilight Time and Kino both license from MGM and Fox so no reason why they both can't license from Sony. Disney used to sublicense in the late 1990's but really hasn't since 2001 so they seem even more unlikely than Warner. But not impossible. Sony just seems to be the likely one. They still have a lot of genre titles left including many Hammer films, tons of 50's and 60's westerns. Lots of stuff that fits Kino. They may even be able to re-license out of print top selling TT titles like Fright Night (1985) and The Blob (1988)

    Most of the titles you listed above are with Disney, but The Stepford Wives, Sleuth, The Heartbreak Kid and some other Palomar titles are with another company. Paramount had licensed them for remake rights and now they're back with that company.

    Just got my Prince of Foxes blu-ray and immediately had a get together to view it. Everyone just loved it. I post this here because another column seemed to denigrate it. Don't they realize that this certainly came from the best available elements? That said, we all noted the sharpness and clarity of the image, so much richer than the old DVD. I though it was wonderful throughout. Kino is to be lauded for giving us such a variety of titles, but it is for the classic historical adventure films and the rare silents that I applaud them. Just want them to know the joy they bring into our homes by doing this.

    I know that we're really not supposed to comment on Kino discs in this thread, but wanted Mr. Lime to know that this week's THE GENERAL/THREE AGES set is wonderful. Looking forward to STEAMBOAT BILL, JR/COLLEGE and 23 PACES next week! Also great to see more Republic titles...will SUNSET IN THE WEST be a color transfer?

    A pipe dream, I'm sure, but I kinda hope that it's Sony. Imagine if Kino and the 3D Film Archive were able to do the remaining Columbia 3-D movies? And imagine if Kino got a couple of Columbia serials out, too? The Spider's Web in HD anyone?

    Boy, would that be terrific!

    The 23 Paces to Baker Street restoration is stunningly beautiful. Schawn Belston and his crew should be applauded, not just for this, but all of their other Fox restorations we've had the honor to release.

    Yes, Sunset in the West will be in color and it looks great. Paramount did a great job with this one.

    I'm hoping for Disney & Co but Sony does own rights to 3 of my Holy Grails;

    Skatetown USA (1979)
    Thank God It's Friday (1978)
    Eyes Of Laura Mars (1978)

    Thank you for clearing that up. Would have been great if they were with you
