    Well, the HTF Chat with great team at Warner Bros is almost here, so I thought that we could set-up a thread where we could air our views and put our title requests. Then at the Chat we could show the Warner Reps the thread so that they could take it away with them and action some if not all the requests. This would also be a good chance for HTF members who can't actually attend the chat. So, lets start airing those Warner issues and listing those titles we all want.

    Fellas, use this for title requests only. For other issues we want an 'on the fly' answer.

    Great idea, Martin. [​IMG]
    Are there any plans to release the Roman Polanski classic The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967) in the near future? If not, would Warner ever consider allowing another company such as Anchor Bay or Criterion to market this great film? Thank you for your consideration.

    Could I add my vote for:
    A LITTLE ROMANCE
    I know this one gets requested a lot, but it is a GREAT film starring Sir Laurence Olivier and Diane Lane. An audio commentary and retro documentary with director George Roy Hill and star Diane Lane would be a great (and unique as far as I know) opportunity to hear what it was like to work on your debut movie as a 12 year old kid, and it's subsequent impact on life and career.
    THE WANDERERS
    A cult classic if ever there was one. An audio commentary from Philip Kaufman would be cool as would a retro documentary.

    Another vote for Wyatt Earp. It's conspicuous by it's abscence and long over due.

    I'd like to ask for two by Audrey Hepburn: THE NUN'S STORY and WAIT UNTIL DARK.
    Thanks for starting this off and keeping it going.

    My priorities on my WB "want" list are Turner-owned titles and a few obscure always-owned-by-WB titles.
    If at least half of the titles on my list inspire WB to release them, I'll be a happy camper. (Can you say Ben-Hur (silent version): SE? How about "No Time For Seargents"?)
    I second the idea for a Thin Man box set.

    Warner,
    Here's another vote for Fearless Vampire Killers; this unique film really deserves to be released on DVD. Any possibility of a special edition with a commentary by Roman Polanski?

    Release Fearless Vampire Killers on DVD!

    Oh, and in case I can't make it, tell them to release anything and everything with Bogart. I'll buy each and every one they release.
