My two titles though were from Selznick International Pictures. So while MGM has released both to DVD, ownership falls under Disney these days and MGM was only the licensee.
But surely something could be worked out to get both out on Blu-Ray via this program.
ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE ------WRESTLING ERNEST HEMINGWAY----THE BUTCHER BOY--WHOS LIFE IS IT ANYWAY?
Thank Heavens for Battlebeast's post. A quick scan shows that he's the only one to mention films which haven't received ANY release. I do, of course, understand the desire of so many to have favorite DVDs bumped up to Blu-Ray. But where are all the requests for silents and films of the 30s and 40s which haven't seen the light of day since God was a pup? There are still quite a few early Oscar nominees awaiting their release, including a surprising number from the 50s. So OLDIES, PLEASE! I thank you.

Its time to release THE DEVILS.
This film is out on blu from Kino and it looks very good.
Is there a list somewhere of all the blu-rays from Warner Archives?
The Last of Sheila
My Favorite Year
LOCAL HERO is WAY overdue.
Here is a link to the Warner Archive list at the WB Shop filtered for blu rays.
A prerequisite for an Archive Blu-ray release is not that those movies were never released in any home video format - if you think about it in most cases that would mean that they were never thought of as viable enough for a home video release until now which would not really indicate that they'd be successful as a Blu-ray release.
Instead you will have titles that have at least been released to VHS, LD or DVD which if I remember correctly is something that can be said about all previous Archive releases, too. The movies that are even more obscure probably have a better chance to be released as a Warner Archive DVD.
Warner please release these Herbert Ross films on bluray! GOODBYE MR CHIPS[ Peter O'toole at his finest] THE GOODBYE GIRL-[Oscar for Richard Dreyfuss] PENNIES FROM HEAVEN-----PLAY IT AGAIN SAM [Woody Allen at his best]
any (all!) 3-strip technicolor reconditioned films especially those great MGM musicals....
THE NAKED SPUR please!!! Anthony Mann+Jimmy Stewart +gorgeous Technicolor cinematography. What's more to like?
Tony Mann was a very visual director, shame he must have fallen out of favor at some point as we see very little of him, at least when it comes to really good Blu-rays of his movies.
Okay ... some specifics from either Warner or MGM for which I have my fingers crossed:
Silents: FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE, GREED, THE STUDENT PRINCE IN OLD HEIDELBERG, THE SCARLET LETTER
1928-29: HOLLYWOOD REVUE, COQUETTE
1929-30: BULLDOG DRUMMOND, DISRAELI, THE ROGUE SONG
1931-32: THE GUARDSMAN
This is, of course, just a start ....
AFAIK - Only fragments of the THE ROGUE SONG are known to exist.
I HAVE Kino Blu ray... and it DOESNT look good...your bar is set very low if you think that is ˝very good˝. especially since we are hearing all the time that WB has better print than Kino Lorber and is working on it... Like I mentioned in some other post, even the SD trailer for A Star Is Born (1937) from WB looks better than Kino HD.
