My Universal Wish List From the Kino Deal

3 Stars

If you hate lists, please move on rather than simply criticizing this one. Thanks.

Now that Kino has told us there are 100 films in their new Universal deal, I have pulled that studio’s titles from my wist list and am replicating it below. Obviously, those in the spirit of this kind of post are encouraged to add to it. There are several pre-1949 Paramount titles which I assume Universal now owns. List does not include silent films.

Abbott and Costello: HOLD THAT GHOST; TIME OF THEIR LIVES; MEET DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE; BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME; MEET THE KILLER; RIDE ‘EM COWBOY

W.C. Fields: THE BANK DICK; NEVER GIVE A SUCKER AN EVEN BREAK; IT’S A GIFT…basically, all the Paramounts, perhaps as a box set?

All unreleased (domestically on Blu-ray) Paramount Preston Sturges films.

  1. Also to be mentioned, Kino has already confirmed that they did NOT get any Abbott and Costello movies. Also, as the previous poster mentioned, Warner owns the 1936 Showboat, so it would not be included in this deal (and it's also rumored as a potential release from Criterion, since WAC has released the movie on DVD a few years back, which is now OOP, which, with WAC, only happens for movies that are either given new transfers, or that they lose the rights to, or that are licensed out to somebody else).

  2. As far as my own wish list is concerned, I'm hoping specifically for Blue Skies (1946) and The Major and The Minor. After that, it's mainly any movies featuring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, or maybe some George Burns and Gracie Allen (heck, I'm hoping that some of the unreleased movies for any of them, particularly the 1936 Anything Goes, are included in the deal).

    Great list and almost every title would be a buy for me. Except Warner owns Show Boat (1936) due that MGM purchased it from Universal when they decided to make their version.

    Yes, thanks.

  4. It will be interesting to see what Kino will release. Whatever is not on Kino's list looks to be with Shout Factory. Aside from the MOD titles lately, it looks like Universal is looking to ease out of catalog title releases like the rest of the studios.

  5. The Great Imposter
    Change Of Habit
    Loving You
    Both Cat Creeps on one disc .
    The "Captive Wild Woman" trilogy
    Inner Sanctum films
    Man Made Monster
    Any "Shock Theater" films not already on BD.

  6. Nice list. Unfortunately, THE CAT CREEPS (1930) is lost.

    There are any number of things I'd hope for; most, I suppose, were produced by Paramount (1930s titles). In addition to the Fields and Mae West films, I'd like more Lubitsch, DeMille, etc. I'm hoping that DESIRE is on the list; seems like a good possibility for that one.

    There are some obscure Universal goodies such as THE ROAD BACK and NIGHT LIFE OF THE GODS that I'd love to latch onto.

  7. Here are a few of the films I'd like to see Kino (or someone) release on Bluray.

    The Smiling Lieutenant
    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
    Love Me Tonight
    Trouble in Paradise
    Three Smart Girls
    100 Men and a Girl
    The Cat and the Canary
    The Ghost Breakers
    Road to Singapore
    Road to Morocco
    Road to Zanzibar
    Road to Utopia
    Destry Rides Again
    Midnight
    Shepherd of the Hills
    The Major and the Minor
    My Favorite Blonde
    Going My Way
    The Miracle of Morgan's Creek
    Murder, He Says
    The Big Clock
    Night Has a Thousand Eyes
    Sorry, Wrong Number

    Universal lost the rights to those last two titles, so deals would have to be made elsewhere (though presumably they still have the elements).

    Yeah…I enjoyed SLAUGHTER ON TENTH AVENUE (and love the Richard Rodger's score) and would agree this would be a welcome Blu-ray. And anything with Rod Taylor or Barbara Rush would at least be worth a rent for me.

  11. Man on the Moon
    Melvin and Howard
    The Smiling Lieutenant
    (It's with Criterion)
    One Hour With You (It's with Criterion)
    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Only if it's the Fredrich March Version)
    Three Smart Girls (They didn't get any Deanna Durbin Films)
    100 Men and a Girl (They didn't get any Deanna Durbin Films)
    Road to Singapore
    Road to Morocco
    Road to Zanzibar
    Road to Utopia
    Going My Way
    Wake Island
    Anne of the Thousand Days
    Ruggles of Red Gap
    The Love Parade
    (It's with Criterion)

  12. ALI BABA AND THE 40 THIEVES w/Maria Montez & Jon Hall paired with SWORD OF ALI BABA W/Peter Mann & Jocelyn Lane (Virtually the same movie…fascinating look at a remake made up from tons of stock footage of the original)
    BLACK BART w/Dan Duryea & Yvonne DeCarlo paired with 1967's RIDE TO HANGMAN'S TREE w/Jack Lord & Melodie Johnson (another exercise in stock footage usage)
    DID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT THE TRAVELING SALESLADY? w/Phyllis Diller, Bob Denver & Joe Flynn
    P.J. w/George Peppard & Raymond Burr
    WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT FEELING GOOD? w/Mary Tyler Moore & George Peppard
    TEXAS ACROSS THE RIVER w/Dean Martin & Alain Delon
    THE HELL WITH HEROES w/Rod Taylor & Claudia Cardinale

    Can you tell I saw a lot of Universal films at the drive-in in the '60s?

  13. A film I saw years ago, and I don't think was ever realeased on any video format, and that's "The Great Man", directed by and starring Jose Ferrer. Made in 1957, it's a great companion to two other films from that year which exposed the reality behind media figures, "A Face in the Crowd" and "The Sweet Smell of Success"

  14. Bedtime Story is great, I remember enjoying it at the cinema & I saw it the other month on YouTube, so Brando could do comedy! It's odd how this film has disappeared (how many people know that Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a remake?). Anyway, I'm interested in all those old Paramount films, all those Bob Hope comedies, all those DeMille films.

  15. I’m happy to see any of the films released in the deal. But if I had to pick a top ten:

    All Night Long
    Anne of the Thousand Days
    Flower Drum Song
    Gambit
    Madame Sousatzka
    Mary Queen of Scots
    Midnight Lace
    Raggedy Man
    Sweet Charity
    Thoroughly Modern Millie

  16. Since Kino did not get Abbott and Costello hopefully that means that Universal has plans to release them chronological in four 7 film volumes like the 1st DVD releases. This may be their plan since they are releasing the monster films in collections. Releasing individual A & C titles doesn't make sense as it will take forever to release them all and they are good sellers for Universal. All 28 Universal titles were released complete on VHS, Partially on Laserdisc and complete twice on DVD.

  17. I’ve put together a short ‘wish list’ that combine Universal owned Paramounts as well as their own branded library. Strictly my own fantasy releases but if anyone official even looks into one or two of these I’d be deeply grateful.

    1) On the ‘mystery series’ or famous detective characters lists this opportunity presents a rare shot at getting a few sought after titles out of the vaults:

    The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1929) – a major missing release in the film cannon of Holmes. Other later Holmes films to look a are The Seven Percent Solution & They Might Be Giants!

    There is an opportunity to also release the Philo Vance films with William Powell as well as Warner Oland’s ‘Fu Manchu’ trilogy.

    These are for Vance:
    The Greene Murder Case
    The Canary Murder Case
    The Benson Murder Case

    and for Oland:
    The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu
    The Return of Dr. Fu Manchu
    Daughter of the Dragon

    And finally there was a lovely ‘studio all-stars’ picture entitled Paramount on Parade which includes a vignette spoofing the above detectives and villain!

    2) Some DeMille films stand out but The Crusades and The Sign of the Cross at a minimum seem much overdue on blu ray.

    3) Some are just self evident (WC Fields, Mae West, the various Twain adaptations, etc) but I do make an appeal for a couple of more obscure titles that should find their revival, namely:
    Little Miss Marker – a rare non-Fox Shirley Temple
    Crime Without Passion – Brilliant debut independent film by Hecht & MacArthur
    The Story of Temple Drake
    The Lives of a Bengal Lancer
    The Road Back
    (recent restoration run at MoMA)
    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949 film)
    Flesh and Fantasy – a wonderful portamento film, a sort of companion to Fox’s ‘Tales of Manhattan’. By rights it should be paired with Destiny, a film expanded from a cut segment.
    Gung Ho! (1943 film)
    The Private War of Major Benson
    Man of a Thousand Faces – just give in and do it, every Chaney nut will buy it twice!
    Freud: The Secret Passion – a CRIMINALLY overlooked John Huston masterpiece!!!
    Minnie and Moskowitz

    I’m sure I’ll be corrected on what can/cannot be accomplished but in any event, thanks for reading!!!

  18. I've noticed a couple of people putting the 1931 Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde on their lists. I stand to be corrected but I believe the rights to that are now held by Warners, not Universal. Like Universal's 1936 Show Boat, MGM got the rights when they made the remakes. The 1931 Jekyll was released on a double feature DVD with the 1941 remake by Warners (who controls the MGM library)..

    Well, I can think of another reason why the 1931 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (and several other titles mentioned) wouldn't be included in this specific deal: we were told that the movies included in this deal cover the years from 19322009. So a number of titles mentioned prior to that are unlikely to come from Kino at this time.

    Warner Bros. does indeed hold the rights for the '32 JEKYLL & HYDE. Maybe an eventual Archives title.

  21. I'd love to see this really obscure David Carradine Universal pic released on Blu-ray (I don't think it even got a DVD release): Fast Charlie…the Moonbeam Rider. Cast includes Brenda Vaccaro, L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong and Noble Willingham.

  22. 40 Pounds of Trouble (1962, Tony Curtis, Suzanne Pleshette — after turning down literally hundreds of requests, this was the first time Walt Disney allowed a non-Disney production to film in Disneyland)
    Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed? (1963, Dean Martin, Elizabeth Montgomery {one year before she got Bewitched}, Carol Burnett)
    Rosie! (1967, Rosalind Russell, Sandra Dee, Audrey Meadows, Leslie Nielsen — this neglected gem has never been released on home video in any format)

  23. I can't wait to see what sort of true classic goodies Kino has in store for us, but in the meantime, here's a random (newer) pairing I'd like to throw into the mix:

    Cry Freedom (1987)
    W.C. Fields and Me (1976) [Guilty Pleasure :roll:]

  24. Enjoyed all of the lists with lots of terrific choices. Especially all of the Preston Sturges comedies on Blu-ray. Plus I too have been looking for 1951's Bright Victory with Arthur Kennedy. I'd like to add Paramount's 1947 comedy, Dear Ruth with William Holden, Joan Caulfield and Mona Freeman, based on the Broadway smash hit.

  25. Some great titles in the OP list, THIS ISLAND EARTH, SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE, THE MONOLITH MONSTERS would be easy immediate buys for me, so long as the transfer was adequate. The Monolith Monsters could use a restoration (if possible), the others surely should get 2K or even 4K remasters with associated gentle clean up (NO DNR!!).

    Scott_Morris

    W.C. Fields and Me (1976) [Guilty Pleasure :roll:]

    I remember seeing that in theaters…!

  26. Still waiting for ISTANBUL (1957) VOICE IN THE MIRROR (1958) BEDTIME STORY (1964) FREUD (1963) IPCRESS FILE (1965) SINGAPORE(1947) HERE COME THE NELSONS (1951). Why is it that one cannot obtain a rare film that has been shown on TCM? :> THE SHARKFIGHTERS (1956) United Artists<?? DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (1932) is already out from Warner Archives! and with restored missing footage, and it's BEAUTIFUL!

  28. I'd love to see the 1941 MGM version of Jekyll & Hyde on Blu-ray. There is evidently missing footage from that one too.

    And someone mentioned All Night Long — I would love to see that on Blu-ray, with the deleted scenes restored. Along with Up the Sandbox and The Guilt Trip it's one of Barbra Streisand's most underappreciated movies. A commentary track would be nice too. James Spada having passed away last year, Streisand experts Christopher Nickens and Karen Swenson would be ideal commentators.

  29. some great suggestions — but how about some more previously unreleased films?

    what about all the early Technicolor films — there are quite a few starring Maria Montez including SUDAN, WHITE SAVAGE, GYPSY WILDCAT and COBRA WOMAN — also EBB TIDE starring Frances Farmer …or SONG OF SCHEHERAZADE starring Yvonne Decarlo

    Why not release for the first time any of Dorothy Lamour's starring South Seas epics like TYPHOON, HER JUNGLE LOVE, ALOMA OF THE SOUTH SEAS , BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON or RAINBOW ISLAND ??

    I second the vote for ISADORA but the directors cut that was released on dvd in the US on VHS , not the dvd/blu version released in the UK which is missing important scenes ..

    Buried Alive (1990)
    At Play in the Fields of the Lord (1991)
    Talk To Me (2007)

  31. Might as well face facts, the wishlist is basically what titles are either on DVD or unreleased. I want every Universal title I have on DVD in Blu ray format
    Narrowing it down the biggest / most desired ones on my wishlist
    Among the Living
    This Island Earth – domestic release
    Night Monster
    The Deadly Mantis
    The Land Unknown – domestic release
    Dr Cyclops
    Man Made Monster
    This Gun For Hire
    The Big Clock
    The Web
    The William Powell as Philo Vance movies

  32. I agree with most all of these lists! Hope I'm wrong, but will really be surprised if we see the most desired titles (DR. CYCLOPS, lesser Universal horrors, 50's Sci-Fi*). I became skeptical with all of the non-confirmations….I just knew the 1932 title would be MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE, and then the "no Bela Lugosi" titles statement. Maybe Universal is holding on to all of these gems for their own release or for Shout!, Criterion, or others to release. Hate to be negative about it, but just getting that feeling……..desperately want to be wrong.

    On the other hand, we might get some non-horror/sci-fi films like BEDTIME STORY, DeMille titles, etc, as many have listed. The recent German region B disc of UNCONQUERED (1947) sports a gorgeous HD transfer….that one would be great for region A!

    *God, no CULT OF THE COBRA! (but that's probably what we'll end up with)

  33. On another Kinote (heh, heh, heh), I've never understood how Kino-Lorber got their hands on so many Vincent Price titles when Shout! Factory released three box-sets of his movies, the majority of which were from the same studio. And for that matter, how did Theater of Blood end up with Twilight Time???

  34. I’m really hoping for some 60’s and 70’s titles:

    Secret Ceremony
    Charlie Bubbles
    Puzzle of a Downfall Child
    Taking Off
    Play it as it Lays
    Two People
    Blue Collar
    Nunzio

  35. Big Gay Andy

    On another Kinote (heh, heh, heh), I've never understood how Kino-Lorber got their hands on so many Vincent Price titles when Shout! Factory released three box-sets of his movies, the majority of which were from the same studio. And for that matter, how did Theater of Blood end up with Twilight Time???

    I wondered about that as well. I did not purchase Shout/Scream's 3rd Blu-ray set as there were no titles that interested me. On the other hand, on their first 2 sets, every title was something that I wanted.

    Other than the Dolls & Goldfoot things, I purchased all the other Kino Vincent Price movies (including the Western with Anne Francis), and I could not resist Theater of Blood so Twilight Time took my money for that (top flight Price movie).

    All along I had thought that Shout would have a dynamite 3rd box set, but Kino got them !

  36. Well, I thought Shout did a great job on all three Price sets. I also think that as long as Kino was releasing so many of his movies, they could easily have done a box-set. As for Theater of Blood, I have two Blu-rays of that one because the British release and the Twilight Time release have entirely different bonus features. (Same with Inferno, by the way.)

  37. Interesting lot of titles which I am also interested in Blu Ray editions. I should have had One Hour With You from France which came out the same day as If I Had a Million(which I got) but One Hour disappeared off my order and another Paramount title was announced scrapped. I have put it back in the cart but then I may not get it easily as Amazon is having a row with my government over sales tax that started in my country for imports from $1 and up from July 1 having delayed it from July 1 last year and they want 10% tax on postal or other delivery costs from overseas and the banks take 3% of the total if card used. So… I am angry and tried to speak to Amazon in US and my country. No response from Seattle and the runaround from the new local warehouse people which is near my house.

    Paramount on Parade is one I had on 16mm at about 75mins TV length with a very gray(worn sound track) and only when I upgraded by Bell & Howell projector did I get sound I could hear with a stronger amp. This film was much longer with 2-strip Technicolor inserts. At the end of the film Chevalier does his Sweeping the Clouds number with the chorus/dancers and it is obvious in the print I had(can’t find it now) that it was in color. Early in the century I read the UCLA report on their holdings and it was not that color sequences had deteriorated and been scrapped. One wonders, if this was so, why they had not been scanned to professional Beta tape just in case. Does any one know what the state of play is with this title?

    The Sign of the Cross had a prologue added in WW2 with a war theme but I have never seen a print with this on it.
    Sorry Wrong Number, and, Morgan’s Creek have remained with Paramount and I assume right played a hand. However, Paramount had some nice films in the 30s and into the 40s I saw on the TV here when the MCA package was bought(included Gulliver’s Travels then) but we did not see any of the earliest talkies that Paramount made like Tom Sawyer(love the late Tommy Kelly version) and Skippy for example. We can only hope while we are still here.

  38. I have been longing to see Paramount on Parade for many, many years. All one can get now is excerpts on YouTube with the most famous stars and numbers. Film historians have discussed the movie at length (Richard Barrios does a fine job with it in his wonderful book on early talkie/musicals), so a complete print is somewhere to be viewed (minus the missing Technicolor sequences only available in black and white), but it remains one of the early movies that's hard to get one's hands on.

  39. Steven Ward

    Still waiting for ISTANBUL (1957) VOICE IN THE MIRROR (1958) BEDTIME STORY (1964) FREUD (1963) IPCRESS FILE (1965) SINGAPORE(1947) HERE COME THE NELSONS (1951). Why is it that one cannot obtain a rare film that has been shown on TCM? :> THE SHARKFIGHTERS (1956) United Artists<?? DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (1932) is already out from Warner Archives! and with restored missing footage, and it's BEAUTIFUL!

    The Warner Archive '32 Jekyll's on DVD rather than Blu-ray though, correct?

    CHEERS! 🙂

  40. You didn't miss much with the WWII re-release of THE SIGN OF THE CROSS. Guys in an airplane flying over
    Rome comment on it's history. Then it's a drastically edited version of the original pre-Code film. At the end,
    the pilots are still yakking and it's the end.

    The Sign of the Cross had a prologue added in WW2 with a war theme but I have never seen a print with this on it.

    I've been able to see the 1950s TV reissue version thanks to a VHS recording made off AMC in the 1980s (back when that channel wasn't so concerned with zombies). It's fun to watch but the tv edit was clumsily done (some segments were deleted but their introductions remain). UCLA has done a restoration/reconstruction which like you I would love to see. My understanding is that the UCLA version is similar to the reconstructions done for Lost Horizon, the Judy Garland A Star Is Born, and King of Jazz in that some sequences are represented with stills with audio while others have the film element but no audio. One restored sequence with the singer Dennis King had its audio reconstructed with a contemporaneous 78 rpm commercial recording that King made. The restoration team found with some computer manipulation the commercial recording could be made to fit the film. Maybe someday this restored version will surface (yes, I know some will counter that it does get some exposure on the festival circuit, but if you're outside of LA or NYC you're at a distinct disadvantage).

    If I remember correctly, a rights issue is holding this one back from release; it probably has something to do with Fields' grandson.

    At the least, WC Fields and Me is available in HD on streaming services like iTunes and Vudu, so at least the content is readily available.

  43. battlebeast

    It isnt good? 🙁

    Was really looking forward to the new For Whom The Bell Tolls. The beautiful Overure and Entr'acte have been dropped. That was enough for me not to purchase as the Victor Young score is one of my favorites of classical film music. Then read the reviews especially bluray.com Enough said. Oh well I'll wait for TCM to broadcast it again and record….

  44. MYRT and MARGE (1933)

    This title is so, so overdue for a proper home video release. It sticks out like a sore thumb when you look at Stooge titles not available on home video. It's arguably the team's best work prior to their long stint at Columbia.

    Over the last several years, we've seen the solo Columbia shorts come out (Shemp, Besser, DeRita), the Shemp Vitaphones, several Healy MGM titles, the MGM shorts….. but no sign of MYRT and MARGE.

    MYRT and MARGE should have come out years ago on regular DVD or certainly as an MOD while Universal was doing those. Hopefully Kino can give it the treatment it deserves.

    …which is why I still hold on to my DVD copy of the movie. Maybe Kino could put out a Blu-ray of the restored version?

    …which is why I still hold on to my DVD copy of the movie. Maybe Kino could put out a Blu-ray of the restored version?

    Only if they make further deals with Universal. For the current deal, they indicated that they are not re-doing anything already available on blu.

    If I remember correctly, a rights issue is holding this one back from release; it probably has something to do with Fields' grandson.

    Re: “W.C. Fields and Me” (1976), that wouldn’t surprise me. And if that’s the case, I couldn’t really blame his grandson. I understand that much (maybe most) of the movie has very little to do with with historical reality, but I’ve always had a soft spot for those 1970’s depictions of Hollywood’s early years. Plus, I like Rod Steiger’s performance, whether it’s truly accurate or not. Speaking of guilty pleasures, I even picked up “Won Ton Ton” on blu when it came out, I’m mildly embarrassed to admit…

  48. Don’t know if it’s been mentioned yet, but I’d also like to single out Bob Fosse’s first directorial effort, “Sweet Charity” (1968). Saw a screening of it at UCLA the other night, and it’s a great time capsule of the swinging era, and a much better movie than its box office receipts would indicate. It would be great to see it on blu, with overture, intermission, and exit music included, along with footage of the different endings Fosse shot, if that footage still exists.

  49. Josh Steinberg

    At the least, WC Fields and Me is available in HD on streaming services like iTunes and Vudu, so at least the content is readily available.

    Yup, and I’ve got it! But there’s still nothing quite like the feeling of truly owning it by being able to hold that shiny little disc in your hands, eh? :banana:

  50. From the top of my head here are some of my Universal wish list (provided Universal still hold the rights):

    Raggedy Man
    'night, Mother
    Resurrection (1980)
    Melvin and Howard
    Uforia
    Heartbeeps
    Diary of a Mad Housewife
    A Very Curious Girl
    Red Sky at Morning
    Mary, Queen of Scots
    September 30, 1955
    Honky Tonk Freeway
    Mass Appeal
    The Milagro Beanfield War
    Henry & June
    Jungle Fever
    A Dangerous Woman
    Primary Colors
    Bright Victory
    Bedtime Story

  51. CinemaCynic

    2) Some DeMille films stand out but The Crusades and The Sign of the Cross at a minimum seem much overdue on blu ray.


    The Sign Of The Cross is being released in France on September 25th, along with, Reap The Wild Wind & Unconquered. I have the German release of Unconquered, & it looks superb, so I have high hopes of the other two DeMille's. I'm sure these will be on Kino's release slate.

  52. My list would be much too long. I want EVERY Universal(especially Universal)and Paramount film from 1929-1948. AND ONLY those that have NOT been previously released on DVD. Universal in particular has been very stingy in releasing their own film brand from that period. I realize that this is fantasy. I can only hope to get 2 or 3 new to DVD out of 100.

  53. I would love to see Kino tackle some of the Abbott and Costello catalog from Uni, also The Heiress – long overdue for Blu rediscovery, and Going My Way. Both of these latter flicks are Oscar-winners to varying degrees and such a shame they are MIA in hi-def. Deservedly in need of an upgrade.

    I would really love Tammy and the Bachelor, too – great Debbie Reynolds performance, and Sweet Charity – superb choreography from Bob Fosse. Deanna Durbin classics have also been sorely neglected – even on DVD we've yet to see a few materialize at all. Pipe dreams, me thinks – but dream, the dreamers of the world must. Where would we be without the dreamers? Indeed.

    I could never understand why "Going My Way" and "The Heiress"- and also "The Lost Weekend" , have not received blu-ray releases

  55. RED SKY AT MORNING (1970)
    LET'S KILL UNCLE (William Castle)
    SWORD OF LANCELOT
    COLLEGE CONFIDENTIAL
    DARK INTRUDER
    COMPANIONS IN NIGHTMARE (1968, made-for-TV)
    SECRET OF BLOOD ISLAND (lost Hammer film)

    I THINK that Tammy And the Bachelor was announced recently as coming to Blu-ray.

  57. RICK BOND

    I would LOVE to see The Inner Sanctum 6 films released on Bluray ! Made by Universal in 1943-1945 with Lon Chaney Jr.

    Yes, and maybe while they were at it , they could make it a Lon Chaney Jr tribute box set and add Man Made Monster.
    I'd also love t be able to buy the complete Captive Wild Woman series on BD

  58. Let me throw out a really obscure Universal title I'd love to see released. It's FAST CHARLIE…THE MOONBEAM RIDER, a Roger Corman production for Universal. It's an odd film for Corman. A light-hearted look at early 1900 motorcycle riders and the first long distance cycle race with stars David Carradine and Brenda Vaccaro. Also in the cast are L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, Terry Kiser, Jesse Vint and some cool antique motorcycles. It's directed by Steve Carver of BIG BAD MAMA and LONE WOLF MCQUADE. It's been years since I've seen it and would love to see a Blu-ray of this one.

  59. So many films that they could release . Of course if they're part of the deal . I would also love to see the 6 Inner Sanctum films on Bluray . Very underrated films . Lon is excellent in these mysteries .

  61. Errol Flynn Fans! Let us protest Universal for NOT RELEASING what is probably the ONLY FLYNN FEATURE THAT HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED ON DVD or BLU-RAY as of this date: "ISTANBUL" (1957). I might ALSO ADD the fact that, ONLY AROUND 20 TITLES in the decade of 1950-60 FROM Universal-International, were made in the combination of TECHNICOLOR AND CINEMASCOPE !!! THIS FILM WAS ONE OF THOSE!

  62. RED SKY AT MORNING (1970)
    KITTEN WITH A WHIP
    THE SWORD OF LANCELOT
    FLOWER DRUM SONG (aka CRAZY WELL-TO-DO ASIANS)
    LET'S KILL UNCLE
    THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN uncut
    THE GLASS MENAGERIE (1987, if Universal still has the rights)
    RESURRECTION (1980)

  63. RED SKY AT MORNING (1970) is another title that has never been released in any format, anywhere in the world.

    To my list, I'll add COLLEGE CONFIDENTIAL, another Mamie Van Doren/Albert Zugsmith all-star camp classic. That's another title that hasn't appeared on home video.

    I believe Kino already announced They Might Be Giants. DB Cooper and King of the Mountain are now with Lionsgate, Cattle Annie with MGM, Napoleon there may be a rights issue with it that has be holding it up (Criterion has been trying to get it I believe), Animal Crackers already released in Marx Bros collection by Universal. There is also an issue with W.C. Fields and Me which is why it has not been released. Not sure what that issue is.
