    I would be happy with one pre-1970 catalog title from WB each month.

    Seconded but it better be an improvement over the version that is available on Netflix / Amazon / vudu.
    With the budget necessary to do this one right it may not really be a Warner Archive release anymore.

    Here are two others I'd like to have even more as for both we hardly have a good SD version:

    Raintree County
    Greed

    Both are probably also too big for an Archive release but one can always wish and hope I guess...

    make it simple 1 WB title, 1 RKO title, 1 MGM Title, 1 Allied Artist Title, 1 Goldwyn title and 1 Paramount title per month would be a start


    and if we are also accounting for DVD, or the hopes of better, how about the last of those remaining Charlie Chan films

    I'm a huge MGM fan; I always wonder if their license on the MGM catalog is going to run out someday and that's why so few MGM pictures ever made it to blu-ray. MGM was the grandest studio of them all yet its catalog has been long neglected.


    If they're handling MGM's Garbo pictures, then I'll point out that all we have is Ninotchka and Grand Hotel. Hope 2016 follows up with Camille (and about 10 more).


    The "Maisie" series


    More MGM musicals: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The Harvey Girls, Ziegfeld Follies...dozens more.

    Considering the quality that Warner has been giving us for some time now I am sure that you will be happy with the release when it finally happens :)

    I don't know the details on this MGM deal, but how about Since You Went Away and I'll Be Seeing You?


    Both are extremely deserving of a Blu-Ray release in my opinion. And I believe that MGM currently holds a license for both of these from Disney.

    Iirc WB now owns most of the MGM library. From wikipedia:


    "Following his brief ownership of the company in 1986, Ted Turner formed Turner Entertainment Co. as a holding company for the pre-May 1986 MGM film and television library, which he retained. After Turner's holding were purchased by Time Warner in 1996, they ultimately became integrated into the Warner Bros.library...."

    Ha, it's not a licensing agreemen. Warner owns the MGM catalogue outright (well up to the mid-eighties). As I remember it, MGM bought an ailing United Artists, & Ted Turner bought Warner, happy with that, he then bought MGM, so now he owned the catalogues of three big studios. But he had to sell some of it, & this is where it gets complicated, he sold the MGM name & the United Artists catalogue, & thats why MGM releases UA titles, well, more like licensing them out these days. So, all those great old MGM movies, if Warner don't release them, nobody else will.

    MATINEE is Universal, and there is a very decent German Blu-ray already available. I second your request for DARK OF THE SUN.

    I agree with at least 50% of the choices in this thread. Makes me so aware again of what is missing on Blu-ray from WB, let alone from Paramount, Disney, etc. It seems likely we will see just about every single AIP movie on Blu except for the few held by Susan what's-her-name. The United Artists library is getting released en masse by numerous smaller companies. But some studios are simply not licensing heir product as efficiently as they could, and my major complaint with WB continues to be that it is sitting on countless Paramount treasures and releasing nary a one of them through the Archives as yet.
