Will we ever see the many great alan ladd titles, top-notch noirs, western and war films and classic horror like island of lost souls, etc. or are these films going to be withheld from the public forever? What will it take to get Paramount to actually release dvd's... a buy-out like the Sony-Fox-MGM deal? What are the chances that another company could just license out the majority of their classic catalog for distribution and home video? I find their negligence extremely frustrating, moreso than any other of the major studios. In my opinion, next to Warner Bros. they have one of the strongest classic film libraries. Many of these titles were released on VHS, so why isn't the studio doing anything with them now? I can't even think of the last time I even noticed a press release from them... Who feels the same way?
