    Any word regarding whether 2006 might see the release of
    the remaining Boetticher/Scott westerns from Columbia?

    The Tall T was restored and was excerpted in the recent Boetticher documentary in 1.85:1 and looked great, so I am guessing that a transfer exists. Columbia will be aware of the Boetticher documentary and hopefully, they will be preparing at least one or two releases this year.

    The Tall T (1957, Columbia)
    Decision at Sundown (1957, Columbia)
    Buchanan Rides Alone (1958, Columbia)
    Ride Lonesome (1959, Columbia)
    Comanche Station (1960, Columbia)

    And also, Budd's Film Noir, The Killer Is Loose (1956, MGM/UA).

    Columbia, please bring them on! I would love to purchase all of those.

    Warners owns the rights to the seventh Boetticher/Scott Western, Westbound, along with his gangster picture, The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond. Hopefully one of those will come out on DVD with the TCM documentary as a special feature.

    Boetticher's Behind Locked Doors is on DVD, from Kino.

    Richard: It's my understanding that Bullighter and the Lady was produced by Republic Pictures production through the efforts of John Wayne, so I presume that Lionsgate would have the current DVD rights.

    Hopefully, a miracle will occur one day, and Lionsgate will begin to start releasing some of the hundreds of interesting films from the Republic library, that have remained buried in recent years.

    It's frustrating that Warner doesn't own all of them, they would've probably released them all in a box like the Peckinpah Westerns.

    There are a large group of films (including these) that I've pretty much given up all hope of ever seeing a release on a disc based format.

    Certain studios for whatever reason have virtually ceased delving into their deeper catalog titles.
