I watched TCM's showing of "The Bounty Hunter" this week as well. Mistakenly thought I'd seen it before. But, no. It was all new to me. And very enjoyable too. This and "Sugarfoot" are the two Warner Bros. films from Scott's early 50's period as a top 10 box office star that seem to have eluded home video release. Would love to see both pop up in Blu-ray. I'd be perfectly satisfied to have "The Bounty Hunter" in 2D - but imagine how much fun it would be to see it in 3D!

So many vintage MGM titles I'd love to have on Blu-ray - from the silent era through the 50's.
After that, there's not that much I'm interested in getting.

Of the post-50's Blu's already available I've more or less got the ones I want (Ride the High Country, Tarzan Goes to India, The Golden Arrow (not much of a movie but Rossana Podesta's presence on any Blu-ray pretty much makes it a required purchase for me), Viva Las Vegas, The Loved One, The Glass Bottom Boat, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Boy Friend and My Favorite Year).

Which leaves me still hoping for the following MGM goodies:
OF HUMAN BONDAGE(1964) Kim Novak, Laurence Harvey
THE YELLOW ROLLS-ROYCE(1965) Rex Harrison, Shirley MacLaine
MORE THAN A MIRACLE(1967) Sophia Loren, Omar Sharif
RYAN'S DAUGHTER(1970) Sarah Miles, Robert Mitchum
THE WRATH OF GOD(1972) Robert Mitchum, Frank Langella, Rita Hayworth
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN(1981) Steve Martin, Bernadette Peters
TARZAN THE APE MAN(1981) Bo Derek, Miles O'Keeffe

Give me Blu-rays on those seven and I can close the books on my post-50's MGM want list.
And concentrate all my rampant MGM collectivitis on the mountain of pre-60's Metro movies I'm itching to own on Blu.

I'd really love to see a two-fer BD of the 2 versions of "She" like they did on "Prisoner of Zenda", but in a BD format. Do the 1935 version with Randolf Scott and the Hammer 1965 version with Ursela Andress...

As I posted in the 1935 thread, Warner doesn’t have the rights to the 1935 She, Cohen does via their ownership of the Rohauer library.

I bought a copy of the harryhausen colorised version....it was ok, but without a super clean B&W print to work from, the end results were laking, for me at least.

I have some of those, but haven't watched them in quite some time. I'll have to check on them.

That's why I made the Warner Archive DVD no longer working thread, so maybe someone from Warner would see what titles have crapped out on us. I was able to get replacements for a few when Sherri Bogard worked there and I was really thankful for that !

WAC released THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP on Blu-ray in 2015.
My film professor -a nephew of the great George Roy Hill - took me and a few others to the set of TWATG - Astoria Studios - when it was shooting back in 1981. Great experience and a very memorable film. GRH was a wonderful director. Was ambitious and had great taste. Never took the obvious route and made some great films that in other's hands could have been forgettable tripe.

Per Wikipedia, "The success of Butch Cassidy and The Sting meant that, for a time, Hill was the only director in history to have made two of the top 10 money-making films.."

I've waited years hoping to see it in 3-D.

I know some people wouldn't care, but I wouldn't be remotely satisfied with The Bounty Hunter in 2D. If it's only 2D, I'll make do with the recorded version. I don't need to own that.

It is so much more fun seeing these films in 3-D, and such a shame some of them never saw 3-D release in their original run. We got lucky with a few, like Jivaro, Dragonfly Squadron, and coming this November, The Diamond. None of the unreleased WB 3-D titles have had that chance.

I also would only be interested in a 3-D release for any of the following WB titles. WB just needs to scan the elements and send the files to the 3-D Film Archive to do the restoration.

We're coming into the 70th anniversary of 3-D's Golden Age. Other than Bwana Devil in 52, the majority of these films were released in 1953 and 54. If WB were to prepare even one or two of these titles for release to coincide with that anniversary, it would be so very much appreciated.

WB have released 3 of their titles on 3D-Bluray, the last being Kiss Me Kate in 2015. Then they just stopped. 3-DFA didn't stop. The audience is still there. In the intervening years 3-DFA have put out so many titles, and are into double digits on Golden Age titles.

WB are sitting on some great classic 3-D titles with big stars. It's frustrating. I'd love to see them all.

Who else would love to see these restored to life, into all of their Technicolor Bluray Beauty?
