"Love With The Proper Stranger". It baffles me that a movie with Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen is ignored for so long. A proper restoration is way overdue.
Love with the Proper Stanger just saw a Kino Lorber release. Not sure a UHD release is called for for it.

My Top choice would be Ben-Hur (1959). Lots of other titles would be nice such as Gone With The Wind, Lawrence of Arabia, My Fair Lady, Around the World in 80 Days (1956). By the way is 30P in the UHD standard for ATWI80D and Oklahoma Todd-AO titles?

Ah, thank you! I had no idea that a decent release had shown up, I'd given up on it ever happening. I'd still like to see a 4K release of it but finally having it in HD is a welcome change. This is one of the few romance/chick flick/rom-com type films that I truly like.

Many of those mentioned were mediocre, even with Blu-ray, such as Forbidden Planet (love the movie). 4k wouldn't improve them much except to accentuate the grain.
I'd love ALL 70mm movies to be transferred, first being Lawrence Of Arabia !!! Pretty please.

I would love to have some large format production in 4k that I like very much but they do not even have a decent Blu-ray release or even none at all:

Raintree County
Around the World in 80 Days
The Alamo
Ryan's Daughter
Zulu
Mutiny on the Bounty
Barabbas
El Cid
Fall of the Roman Empire
The Greatest Story Ever Told

All of these are stunning large format productions that should shine in the format and I cannot really decide which one I would like to be released the most, I always end up with two or three titles :)

To date, Archive hasn't gone 4K - I would've been shocked to see an "A"-list title like "2001" "relegated" to Archive! :)
I'd be more shocked if Warner didn't do something for that film's 50th anniversary. The idea of having that on a 4k UHD disc is starting weaken my resistance.
