Separate names with a comma.
Discussion in 'DVD' started by Ryan Belfast, May 3, 2004.
Has there been any word on PAGE MISS GLORY (1935) yet?
Why is this still not available on DVD?
I'd love to see that, too - a Marion Davies set would be ideal, but I'm sure that's just wishful thinking on my part.
With the 1944 Jane Eyre finally set for release and probably the rest of the Astaire MGM films this year, Rapture (1965) is the only film left on my 'absolutely, positively must-have' list.
According to TCM's database, it was produced by Panoramic Productions, and is distributed by International Classics. However, it turns up on Fox Movie Channel once every few months...does that mean that Fox would have the rights to release it on DVD in the USA? I'm wondering who to send my begging letters to...it's one of the first films that ever really made an impression on me.
Cavalcade is going to be on Fox Movie Channel on 2/15/2007 at 3 am Pacific.
My top five:
Ace in the Hole (already shown on TCM)
The Last Command 1928
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World (uncut roadshow already mentioned earlier in thread)
Some of these movies mentioned by people in this thread are available in other regions.
Well progress has certainly been made since my original post. Jean de Florette/Manon des Sources have been upgraded to a very watchable transfer, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and O Lucky Man! have been released, and even Taureau is now available on DVD, although it is only in French and I haven't seen what the NFB has done with it as my order hasn't shipped yet.
Even Why Shoot the Teacher is apparently available on DVD, but distribution seems limited and I'm not sure what you actually get for the $50 + shipping they want for it, and the company that lists it has failed to answer my inquiry.
Yes, it's great to finally have a watchable copy of Jean/Manon on the shelf to watch anytime.
Stranger remains frustratingly elusive. I hope Paramount catches a clue next year when Warner releases their Natalie Wood set
my updated 2007 want list
1) Love With The Proper Stranger (Paramount)
2) Hold Back the Dawn (Universal)
3) Wanda Nevada (MGM)
4) The Wind (Warner)
5) any of the following...
Almost Summer (Universal)
The Brink's Job (Universal)
Looking For Mr Goodbar (Paramount)
1. The Grey Fox
2. Wrestling Ernest Hemingway
3. Quo Vadis
I've done pretty good since my original post. My top three are released, and the 4th is in process. Now if we could just get proper treatment for Our Gang. Several Norma Shearer titles have been released and several more announced, so even one of my extra comments has been covered.
Here's a new list:
1. The Compleat Tex Avery Cartoons
2. The Complete Our Gang
3. The Crowd, The Big Parade, & Greed (I'll be greedy and combine these)
4. A Foreign Affair (As well as the remaining Wilder titles)
5. Red Dust (...and other Harlow Titles)
Also more Lon Chaney would be greatly appreciated.
Four titles crossed off my old list, though there are still several crucial titles MIA in R1:
Looks like I can take Harold Lloyd, Popeye, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, and Battleship Potemkin off my list. Doesn't look like there's much hope for remastered Laurel & Hardy, Napoleon, or Thief.
vvv Reflections in a Golden Eye is supposed to have weird color grading. It was changed after initial prints much to the dislike of John Huston.
Taking Off (Forman)
Far From The Madding Crowd (Schlesinger)
One Eyed Jacks (Brando) (a proper release by Paramount or Criterion please!)
Reflections In A Golden Eye (Huston) (in NATURAL colour please!)
My Top 10:
The Accused (48) - Paramount
The Barretts of Wimpole Street (34) - Warner
Holiday Affair (49) - Warner
The Voice of the Turtle (47) - Warner
Margie (46) - Fox
Waterloo Bridge (40) - Warner
The Constant Nymph (43) - Warner (if the legal issues can ever be solved)
Let's Be Happy (57) - ?
Two Weeks with Love (50) - Warner
Pitfall (48) - Lionsgate
Very optimistic as always - in late December 2006, I made a list of my 200 most wanted films on DVD and some 28 were released in 2007, that's REALLY amazing!!!
Wow, I'm happy to have received 60 % of my wishes.
What is your hit/miss ratio dear fellow HTF member ?
Well, 3 1/2 years ago, my five most wanted were:
Christmas in Connecticut
Up in Arms
The Blue Dahlia
3 out of 5 have been released in those 3.5 years. I guess it could be better or worse.
Hips Hips Hooray
1. Ninja III: The Domination
2. Meet the Feebles - Legit and remastered
3. Howard the Duck
The Monster Squad - GOT IT!
5. Where the Buffalo Roam - With CORRECT music!
Well, I've gotten one! But since I am never satisfied, I will replace it with
4. One Eyed Jacks - Proper release as mentioned by others (Preferably Criterion)
I guess I should update my top 5:
Up in Arms
The Blue Dahlia
Night Train to Munich
The Devil & Miss Jones
The Great Gildersleeve
It's very hard to pick just 5, and I'm resisting the temptation to list things released but needing to be rereleased like It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
Four of my original 5 have been released.
Updated list -
99 River Street - from my original list
The Friends of Eddie Coyle
Until the End of the World
From my original and updated list, still waiting for:
Split Image(dream on)
Sin of Harold Diddlebock (a decent print)
Eleanor Powell set
Remaining Fred Astaire
My top five will include film series. Hope that is ok.
1) It Ain't Hay (probably a long way from happening)
2) Remember the Night (gotta be coming soon)
3) Blondie series
4) Rio Rita (hopefully coming later this year)
5) Boston Blackie series
