See original thread here: The Columbia/Sony Wishlist Thread

So, here it is. It's a good idea to collect those wishes in one thread. This way it's easier for the folks over at Sony, to response to suggestions and so on and with Mr. Schlesinger being a member of this board, maybe we can lure some information away/out of him (hope you get the meaning of what I'm trying to say ;) )

So I happened upon the original thread the other day and started reading it again. I was surprised to see that in the 4 years since it was created, approximately 70% of HTF members' title suggestions have been released either through the Sony MOD Choice Collection or through third party licensing. That's quite a significant amount and I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates it. (Do we have Mike S. in part to thank? :) )

Anyway, I thought it was be nice to resuscitate and continue the thread to give Sony some more ideas on what to release by gauging interest. Also, it might spice up the selections for the Choice Collection which have been a bit stale lately. I've removed all the titles from the list that have been released, and a few that we know for sure don't belong to Sony, I've added a good amount of new titles that were left out last time, some from my own wishlist and some I've seen other members mention in various threads. Don't be shy to suggest anything that you want that I left out.

I hope this helps. Keep up the great work guys.

  • Anything with the likes of Barbara Stanwyck, Melvyn Douglas, Rosalind Russell, Irene Dunne, Carole Lombard and Jean Arthur that may still have lying around. I would gladly get a third and fourth screwball comedy icons. (+1)
  • I'd love to see a five pack of these WWII films: Anthony Mann's THE HEROES OF TELEMARK, Peter Glenville's ME AND THE COLONEL, Carol Reed's THE KEY, Anatole Litvak's THE NIGHT OF THE GENERALS, and Carl Foreman's THE VICTORS. All but THE VICTORS have already been released on R2. Hell, it would be worth releasing them one at a time (on "Martini Movies"?) just to get them out there.
  • I'd like to see a British horror set, perhaps containing: Night of the Demon (the current one costs more then an Icons Set!), Creeping Flesh (currently OOP), Creatures The World Forgot, Corruption
  • COLUMBIA RESTORATIONS: WESTERNS IN THE AGE OF NOIR: set based on this series with: GUNMAN'S WALK, FACE OF A FUGITIVE, REPRISAL! & THE WALKING HILLS.

  • Icons of Espionage I: Man on a String (1960), The Deadly Affair (1966), The Looking Glass War (1969)
  • Icons of Espionage II: Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die (1967), Assignment K (1968), Hammerhead (1968)

Ditto on the classic cartoons! I mentioned in another thread here that I'd love to see Ub Iwerks' color cartoons done for Columbia in the late 1930s, esp. the art deco classic, "The Merry Mannequins."

Great list up to 1971, less so afterwards. I confess that most of the 1980s and '90s titles are unfamiliar to me.

A big problem with many of the foreign titles listed is that the rights are probably no longer held by Columbia/Sony. I'm sure that's the case with the Japanese animated feature, LITTLE PRINCE AND 8-HEADED DRAGON (1963), which was produced by Toei Animation, which is actively trying to market its output overseas and is releasing some classic anime titles through Discotek Media in the U.S.

The more Columbia comedy shorts that get released, the better.

The biggest priorities among those have to be the Harry Langdon series and the Andy Clyde series. The Schilling & Lane series would also be welcomed, as would be a lesser series like the Tom Kennedy & Monte Collins shorts.

I would have to guess the Langdon's may be the best bet for release. He probably has the most name value, and his series could be hammered out over two discs. Clyde did 79 shorts at Columbia; that would be a big undertaking.

I'd love to see a release of the Frank Tashlin-scripted GOOD HUMOR MAN (1950) with Jack Carson and Lola Albright. Like the 2 Fuller Brush comedies, this film is chock full of wild cartoon gags and some incredible stunts. Plus the irony of bad guy George "Superman" Reeves thwarted by the local kids' "Captain Marvel Club".

I would like to see THE GOOD HUMOR MAN released also. It is a simple film that has some great comic moments. I have never really been a Jack Carson fan but he makes me laugh out loud in this film. Jean Wallace really does a great job as the young woman he tries to help and both Lola Albright, as Jack's love interest and Peter Miles as her kid brother give a good performance that plays off Carson well. What I would also love to see is collection of the Five Little Peppers series. Those four films are a complete guilty pleasure.

Ah, I knew I was forgetting something. I've been waiting ages for that one to turn up somewhere. After the two Fuller Brush comedies, I was sure this one was going to turn up to on the MOD line, but the wait continues...

I would add to the list the Joseph Losey remake of M (1951).

Sony no longer controls the Losey "M." I believe the rights reverted to the producer.

Yeah, they are nice movies. They showed all of them on TCM a year ago.

A small addition to make but for those of us in the HB thread please add the Sony owned titles of that library. Jeannie (animated series) and Patridge Family in 2200 A.D
