    49th Parallel will be released this year along with A Canterbury Tale by Criterion.

    I'm also confident that Sony will release A Matter of Life and Death this year.

    Amazing that, after all these years, The African Queen still is not on DVD.

    I don't trust that site too much...I tried to vote for The Devils, and it says it is already available on DVD and I can buy it from them for $29.95.

    Plus looking at that top ten list, I have a feeling some people are voting multiple times. Letty Lynton is the second most wanted film not on DVD???

    You can't vote more then once, it won't let you. I accidently(no, really) did it and it said I already voted.

    Please vote for the Films of Ronald Colman..especially Prisoner of Zenda, The Masquerader, and A Tale of Two Cities.

    I noticed that The Magnificent Ambersons ranks a pathetic 21st. I know it does not exist as Welles intended, but it's still a fine film and deserves a DVD release (lavish or otherwise).

    A Matter of Life and Death does not appear under either title in the database even though TCM showed it during their Powell festival recently. I hope Gordon is right and this movie gets a proper R1 release this year.

    The funny thing is, I love the TCM website, but I've never noticed the vote option before.

    I'm guessing people have multiple e-mails, if you do you can vote for the same title more than once.

    Unless Letty Lynton is more popular than I ever thought.

    I voted many, many times, but you can only vote once per title. Is that the confusion?

    Vote for different films once. Don't vote for the same film a second time using the same email address - use an alternate address if you must.
