    I'm sorry that Universal seem to have put a halt to this series. There are still so many Universal "programmers" of the 1950s that I want to see. Just yesterday I saw a photo which reminded me of a MIA Tony Curtis film: The All American.

    Yes, Universal has a fair number of Tony Curtis 1950s films that have never been released on DVD. I'd like The Square Jungle.

    I don't think I've ever seen that film. I'd certainly like to.

    I don't mean to gratuitously harangue Universal's home media dept. but if they had any marketing savvy they'd try to iron out whatever rights entanglements are keeping them from releasing this:

    It would make me (Shirley Jones fan) and my best friend (James Cagney fan) very happy if Universal would please release:

    That would make me very happy too. I have an off-air recording onto VHS which I've copied onto a DVD-R but, of course, it's of appalling quality: pan-and-scan plus VHS!

    I just read the rave review of the 1933 Universal film ONLY YESTERDAY in the latest New Yorker. Now hoping
    someone from Universal will read this and maybe issue a DVD-r. It sounds like a true gem.

    Margaret Sullavan's first film, directed by John M. Stahl. I loved this film when I saw it a lifetime ago, and fell in love with Sullavan's performance (and that voice!). It reminded me of the latter Letter from an Unknown Woman. I'd love to see it again, so a DVD-r would be most welcome.

    More than a year has gone by without any new releases (Nov. 23, 2016 was the last update). I wouldn't hold my breath regarding a revival. The Warner Archive is the only company still putting effort into its MOD program. (February saw the most recent Sony Choice Blus.)

    It would be really nice if Twilight Time would make a deal with Universal to release many of their 50's and 60's titles.

    It takes two to tango and two to make a deal. I'm sure Twilight Time would be happy to release Blu-ray discs based on high quality masters of Universal-owned titles. Unfortunately very few high quality masters are created by Universal.
