It finally seems that the up to now ignored Universal library of 70s-90s films are getting some respect with no fewer than 5 boutique labels striking up licensing deals. Below is a list of 70s films either never released on video in any form, ONLY REACHED VHS or never made it to Bluray. The 5 boutique companies are Arrow; Criterion; Kino; Shout! and Twilight Time. Also, Universal have also been releasing some catalog films on Blu recently. Thought it would be helpful to see whats available and fun to think which company MAY bring them out. Recently announced (excitedly) were I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND (Criterion) and WILLIE DYNAMITE(Arrow). Have fun NOV (Never on Video) VHS (only) NOB(Never on Blu) Boldfaced (important films)

I think Universal is probably the most represented studio for catalog titles at the moment. Some of the films on your list they may not have rights to any longer, some may have rights issues, others may reqiure extensive restorations and some may not have enough commercial appeal to even bother.

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (1979) has been available (as an import) since October 2016. This includes both versions of the pilot movie and the entire series.
Just that little annoying fact of the theatrical cut only available in SD.

I've seen about 40 films on that list, many of them when they came out and I only own a handful. Most of these were not very good--then or now. Universal devoted most of its resources in the 1960s to television, including many TV movies, and so many of their theatrical movies from the time are glossy fluff that was designed to go straight to TV within a year or so of theatrical release. While filmmakers were challenging the Production Code right and left, Universal's output in that decade was the safest and weakest of all the major studios. While Warner Bros. was giving us COOL HAND LUKE, BONNIE AND CLYDE, BULLITT and THE WILD BUNCH; Fox was giving us THE LONGEST DAY, THE SAND PEBBLES, PLANET OF THE APES and BUTCH CASSIDY; Paramount was giving us THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, SEVEN DAYS IN MAY, EL DORADO, and TRUE GRIT; Columbia was giving us LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, DR. STRANGELOVE, THE PROFESSIONALS, IN COLD BLOOD, and EASY RIDER; and United Artists was giving us WEST SIDE STORY, THE GREAT ESCAPE, the James Bond films, the Sergio Leone trilogy, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and MIDNIGHT COWBOY, Universal was giving us Don Knotts comedies, God help us.

If you're talking about Universal's 1960s output, I'd rather see some of their TV movies get released, along with box sets of their TV series, e.g. "The Outsider" and "Name of the Game."

Still waiting for the only movie I still have on VHS. UFOria with Cindy Williams & Fred Ward. Completed in 1980 but sat on the shelf until Universal released in 1985. A funny and underrated film that has not been released on dvd.

How can you make a '60s list and not include The Hell With Heroes? Incidentally I have The Ipcress File, Blindfold, Coogan's Bluff and Madame X on Blu-ray disc already.

I got Midnight Lace on Blu-ray from Europe. The film itself, while labeled Region B, plays fine in all my Blu-ray players.

1970:
Puzzle of a Downfall Child (NOV)

1976
Swashbuckler (NOB)

1978
Moment by Moment (NOV)

1979
The Seduction of Joe Tynan (NOB)
Assuming NOV means never on video, I have DVDs of Puzzle Of A Downfall Child from France and Moment By Moment from Germany. Both are very good transfers. I have a blu ray of The Seduction Of Joe Tynan from France. A blu ray of Swashbuckler is available from Germany but I don't own it.

Kino has confirmed that it does have one Elizabeth Taylor title on tap via its deal with Universal. Speculation is that it is either Boom or Secret Ceremony. I'm hoping it is Secret Ceremony since it's the better movie.
