Lifeboat is available from Australia on Shock here. It is said to be identical to the Masters of Cinema UK edition. It plays on region A (I have it) though it is listed as region B.

The transfer is good, but not stellar, possibly the best it can look considering the state of the best remaining film elements.

I would also love to see a Sahara release. I watched it on TCM a few years ago and I thought it was great. One of my favorite Bogies, maybe an all-time favorite.

Not sure about the other 3, but "Lifeboat" is already out on blu:

Masters of Cinema did a Region B BD:

Shock/Veg used the same transfer used by MOC for a REGION-FREE blu in Australia:

I've got the region-free Aussie release and it's very good.
