WB:
Release the classic WB and MGM silents like Ben-Hur (1925), He Who Gets Slapped, Greed, Don-Juan, etc...
There is a GREAT market for these films!
Paramount:
Release your Valentino and von Stroheim classics to DVD. Again, a lot of people would grab a copy of a film such as The Sheik, Foolish Wives, or The Wedding March.

And THE CROWD and THE WIND... I concur, but Warners, which won't even release most of their SOUND classics, are not likely to listen.

What Dick said...

------------------
He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
-- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

Actually I don't think Paramount controls those titles anymore, most of their pre-50's back catalog went to Universal, I think.
But yes, Warner should put out what they've got, I just won't be holding my breath.

Are you sure? I know that Paramount still controls A Kiss for Cinderella, because they're the ones who refuse to let anyone use the pristine print at the Library of Congress.

Could someone provide a few screen captures to show the problem?
I skeptical about this being a problem since LDI spent quite a lot of time restoring the movie.
