Sony no longer has the rights to Night of The Juggler. The movie is now owned by a new copyright holder that's preventing it to be released on DVD, for unknown reasons. I would like Sony to release more of the Columbia comedy shorts. We already got the Stooges, Buster Keaton, and now, Charley Chase.

Harry Langdon is the next logical release. I'm hoping they do it. They could take care of his shorts in two discs, much like with Chase.

Andy Clyde would also be great, though it would be a massive commitment as he did nearly 80 shorts at Columbia (second in number only to the Stooges).

The more shorts they release, the better.

PEPE (a favorite of mine) was shown on TCM a few days ago in a beautiful HD transfer :). It is the short version but nevertheless it was to see it in HD. I hope it is available on streaming platforms soon.

What? No love for George Stevens' exceptional The Talk of the Town (1942) costarring Jean Arthur, Cary Grant and Ronald Colman? This has to be one of the sadly underrated politically-themed rom/coms of all time, with Colman's judge, on the cusp of become a Supreme Court nominee, embroiled in a local arson case in which Grant's wrongfully accused every man has fallen madly for the town's scatterbrain, played by Arthur.

love given, yes i would like to see that released,

another thing that i would have lie to see continue is the deal that Powerhouse /Indicator had with Sony/Columbia of being able to release items region free, god they were knocking the Hammer titles out of the park, great Randolph Scott set, i get it that the want to do north american releases through a company in the States, ( more revenue from deals). But sometimes a great boxset is the better deal.

See original thread here: The Columbia/Sony Wishlist Thread

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.

Movie series/Shorts & Cartoons

[*]The The Whistler series would be great as well, maybe as an Icons of Suspense: The Complete The Whistler Series. (+2)
[*]I would like to see Sony release more of the Columbia serials, mainly The Shadow and The Spider's Web, but would welcome others like The Spider Returns, Deadwood Dick and The Desert Hawk.
[*]I'll add my request for other series such as Crime Doctor, Boston Blackie and The Lone Wolf. (+1)
[*]COLUMBIA CARTOON CLASSICS!- featuring Screen Gems - Krazy Kat, Scrappy, Color Rhapsody series and The Fox and Crow shorts! (+1)
[*]A complete collection of UPA's innovative and groundbreaking JOLLY FROLICS series!
[*]MR. MAGOO - The Columbia Pictures theatrical cartoons: 1950-1959 (+1)
[*]I'd love to see Ub Iwerks' color cartoons done for Columbia in the late 1930s, esp. the art deco classic, "The Merry Mannequins."
[*]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. (+1)
[*]I would love to see a collection of the Five Little Peppers series.
[*]Please release your Hanna-Barbera properties: Jeannie (animated series) and Partridge Family 2200 A.D
General remarks

[*]Columbia Pictures Film Noir Classics V - The Reckless Moment, Shadowed, The Dark Past, Blind Spot, I Love Trouble (+1)
[*]Films starring Melvyn Douglas, Joan Blondell, Rosalind Russell, Lucille Ball, Evelyn Keyes, Grace Moore, Ann Miller, Glenn Ford and Cornel Wilde
[*]More 80's schlock
[*]I'd love to see an "Icons of the Old West" release featuring some of the Columbia B-westerns from Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, Bill Elliott and Charles Starrett.
[*]An Icons of Noir: B-Noirs set would be nice as well, 4 movies on 2 discs like their Screwball titles.
[*]A Blake Edwards box set
[*]Bill Forsyth & Christine Lahti commentary for Housekeeping
[*]Also, any other Lombard titles controlled by Sony. The more pre-Codes, the merrier.
[*]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

[*]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)
In Production / Planned (no guarantee)

[*]Peter Lorre collection (3-movies?): Crime and Punishment (1935), Island of Doomed Men (1940), The Face Behind the Mask (1941) - date tba. - status unknown - titles were mentioned in an interview with Mr. Schlesinger back in 2007 as "in work"

[*]Lost and Found (1979) - Melvin Frank - Released January 7, 2014. Sony Choice Collection.
[*]The Miami Story (1954) - Fred F. Sears - Released January 7, 2014. Sony Choice Collection.

Since we have a foreign film as best picture how about a re-release of the 1972 Oscar winner The Garden of the Finzi-Continis? The dvd's are out of print so a Blu-ray release would be nice.
