    Warner & Paramount quit dragging your feet on your Hitchcock titles "To Catch A Thief", "Dial M For Murder" and many other titles should be on the market already. These are titles that will sell well enough to warrant their release.

    Paramount is currently restoring To Catch a Thief so you can leave them off your ire list.
    Warner is the biggest culprit out there as they own the lion's share of Hitchcock films that are not on DVD:
    Dial M for Murder
    Foreign Correspondent
    I Confess
    Mr & Mrs Smith
    Stage Fright
    Suspicion
    Wrong Man, The
    And don't forget Fox with Lifeboat

    There are 7 of those 9 films I'd buy in a heartbeat.

    I'd be down for 3 of 'em
    Suspicion
    Foreign Correspondent
    (Well, at least if they are Warner's, they'll look fantastic if they ever do come out.)
    and
    Lifeboat

    Dial M For Murder is rumored for 2003...it'll be a Lowry Digital Images restoration, probably.

    What? No one is clamoring for "Under Capricorn"?

    (Actually, it's quite dull, but it's still better than "The Paradine Case".)

    Any word on Dial M for Murder? I heard rumours last year that it is supposed to be this year but have not heard anything since.
