I'd like to see more Paramount comedies and musicals (like W.C. Fields and Marx Bros.) mainly.

Universal has a gold mine of classic cinema that is hardly touched upon.

And a full special edition of Napoleon would be wonderful. Have the 5 1/2 hour cut from England, both the Coppola and Davis scores, plus the Kevin Brownlow documentary on Abel Gance... I'd pay any price to get this film on DVD.

PUFNSTUF! They put this on VHS but quickly went out of print, probably because everyone like me was waiting for the DVD! (Plus the VHS was 'formatted to fit your screen').
Glad SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND is coming though!
