Universal, how about a Paramount Horror Collection next year?

Of course, it couldn't be called that, but here is what could be in it:

Island of Lost Souls
Murders in the Zoo
Supernatural
The Monster and the Girl
The Man in Half Moon Street
The Uninvited


Then there is still The Cat and the Canary, but that one belongs in a Bob Hope set

There are also several Universal Horrors still left in the vault for another collection or two:

The Great Impersonation
The Black Cat
(1941)
Man-Made Monster
The Mad Doctor of Market Street
Night Monster
The Strange Case of Dr. RX
Captive Wild Woman
The Mad Ghoul
The Ghost Catchers
Jungle Woman
Jungle Captive
The Cat Creeps
(1946)
House of Horrors
The Spider Woman Strikes Back


So have I missed any?

For Paramount (maybe a Vol. 2), I would add
THE UNSEEN
DOCTOR CYCLOPS
DOUBLE DOOR
THE WITCHING HOUR
MENACE
THE MAD DOCTOR
AMONG THE LIVING
MURDER BY THE CLOCK

For Universal, I would add
MYSTERY OF MARIA ROGET
SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM (well, all the "Blue Room" films)
and possibly the CRIME CLUB films.

I'd probably buy them all.

That statement, "I'd probably buy them all" should be enough to get the ball rolling. I expect "thank yous" from all of you once they are announced next spring.

Universal owns "The Old Dark House", do they not?

That one needs to be back in print; it should have been on their recent "Boris Karloff Collection"

Isn't "The Old Dark House" technically owned by Sony? I read that the original negative exists (except for reel 1), yet Kino's DVD is from a 16mm source. Columbia bought it decades ago for a remake, but the literary rights somehow were tangled up by Raymond Rohauer.

I don't think Sony owns it, I think it's still in the hands of the Douris Corporation, the caretakers of Rohauer's collection (and they also share Rohauer's inexplicable behavior towards allowing the prints to be seen...we should have much better versions of Buster Keaton's films available on DVD). The Kino DVD is taken from William Everson's private 16mm print. I don't know if the original negative still exists, but at the very least a superior source does exist (wether it's the negative or just a better print) in the Douris Corporation's archives, as evidenced by the scenes in Brownlow's Universal Horror.
