I'd like to see LITTLE BIG MAN turned into a special edition with commentary by Hoffman and Penn.

I'd also like to see DVDs of

SCROOGE

BLOOD AND ROSES

DEEP END

THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK

Summer School would be great. With a commentary by Chainsaw & Dave. Seriously, it would be cool to hear a commentary from the some of the cast.

Please nobody laugh, but I'd really like to get Orca on DVD! Paramount's got some real gold in their vaults. I'd also be thrilled to get Police Squad!, Student Bodies and Popeye. (Not sure who'd get Popeye, because I'm pretty sure it was a Disney/Paramount effort.)
In my opinion, Paramount's made great improvements over the past few years (can't WAIT for the Top Secret! DVD) and I look forward to their future "catalog" releases!
Remember: Orca ;)

Happy to hear PAPER MOON is being considered!
Paramount, could you please enlist Peter Bogdanovich to record a commentary? And I am also eagerly hoping for DVDs of his films TARGETS and DAISY MILLER.
Thanks!

If Paramount does release The Tenant, Serpico & Don't Look Now this year, they will have really cut down on my Paramount want list. Besides some of the titles already mentioned, (Bang the Drum Slowly, Targets, Friends of Eddie Coyle, Disorderly Orderly, Phase IV, Deep End) these are high on my want list:
1900
Conformist, The
Day of the Locust
Hud
I Married a Monster From Outer Space
If
Looking for Mr Goodbar
One Eyed Jacks
Reds
Who's Minding the Store
Paramount, you're doing an excellent job in releasing your catalog titles. Keep up the good work!!!

THE BIG CARNIVAL (a.k.a., Ace In the Hole).
Denied so much as a VHS release. Millions of fans of the late, great Billy Wilder and classic cinema would give their eye-teeth to get their hands on a pristine copy of this timeless masterpiece on DVD. Cha-ching!

Martin Blythe,
Does Paramount still own Deep End (1970)?
Unman, Wittering and Zigo (1971)?
Child's Play (1972)?
I'd love to own all 3!

The President's Analyst, Smile, and Once Upon a Time in the West are the only Paramount movies left on my original list.

I'll add the Complete Andy Richter Controls The Universe and The Complete Police Squad.

I'll add my heartfelt support for a DVD of Billy Wilder's 'The Big Carnival'. The neglect of this film in the home video market over the years has been extraordinary. The least Paramount could do now to make amends would be to follow the promised 'Sunset Boulevard' (for which many thanks in anticipation) with a welcome DVD of this fine movie in memory of a great and much missed director.

'If...', 'Little Big Man' and 'One-Eyed Jacks' also get my enthusiastic vote among the other titles mentioned.

Let me put in a plug for the quietly creepy movie
The Sentinel (1982)
and an anamorphic widescreen re-release of Event Horizon with extra footage. (A "director's cut's" been rumored for this fall, but some hard (authoritative) evidence would be nice.)

If you're referring to the Michael Winner horror film starring Chris Sarandon and John Carradine, that's a Universal title. It's currently available on a so-so GoodTimes DVD. Great little flick, but we're not likely to see a U reissue anytime soon, sadly.
