    I wonder if Warner will be announcing the Blu-ray release of Samson & Delilah soon?

    You get the Duke in the right role and there's no one more convincing. Oh, my gosh, Gunfight At The OK Corral too...holy grail film for me.

    John, could played any role, wished he did more comedies though; he was a natural at that.

    Definitely agree, it is ALMOST a carbon copy of Rio Bravo, even the director, Howard Hawkes, admitted as much. Still a good movie, James Caan in the Ricky Nelson role, Robert Mitchum in the Dean Martin role, Arthur Honeycutt in the Walter Brennan role, and John Wayne in the John Wayne role. :P

    Red Buttons was the real star of Hatari for me, plus a tree full of monkeys.

    Thank you, Warner. You're the only studio who gives a damn about classic titles on Blu-ray!

    I would say Fox has done a decent job as of late.

    But, yes, Warner reigns supreme!

    Paramount could of released these titles by themselves, but I have a feeling these releases won't see much special features though. I'm sure someone could put together a nice featurette or documentary about the making of Harari!

    Well we are talking Paramount films here, two of which have already been released in Europe, but I'm not going to have a go at Warner, as I'm sure next year they'll be releasing lots of lovely catalogue titles.

    El Dorado is definitely a spiritual successor to Rio Bravo and possibly even more laid back in its own unique Howard Hawks style, effortlessly transitioning from serious to pure farce.
    Had more of the expectation of El Dorado, given that one was one of the few films (out of 10) Paramount released in their Centennial Collection DVD line. Looks like WB has free reign on anything classic Paramount that isn't already out on blu.

    WB just wants own everything plain and simple, I'm surprised that the Audrey Hepburn titles haven't been re-release by WB yet.

    I have my doubts also, but I'll hope so anyway.

    I actually prefer El Dorado to Rio Bravo, I suppose because I saw El Dorado at the cinema back in the day, also I find Rio Bravo is paced just a bit too leisurely.

    I like El Dorado more as well, but they're both fine movies.

    It's great to see these being released in March. I figured WB/Paramount would wait until the Father's Day time frame to release any Duke or classic westerns on Blu. 3 more great films I can cross off of my want list. Thanks WB :banana:

    How about The Sons Of Katie Elder, In Harm's Way, and Donovan's Reef for Father's Day?

    I pretty sure the Audrey Hepburn films stayed with Paramount and not part of the Warner deal.

    Which Hepburn films are you taking about? Because Breakfast at Tiffany's (BD and DVD), War and Peace (DVD), Sabrina (DVD) and Funny Face (DVD) are all will Warner now as they are sold at WBShop.com
