How about a Fox Studio Classics schedule looking like this:

The Innocents
Emperor Of The North (which is, I agree, a great and undervalued film)
A Walk With Love And Death
Prime Cut

I know it ain't gonna happen, but...

'Dark of the Sun' - I'm so glad someone else remembers this film, far superior to other 'mercenaries in Africa' movies such as 'The Wild Geese' and 'The Dogs of War' both of which are available on DVD...will we see this one released?...not very likely.

Some British selections...

I wouldn't mind a DVD of Four in the Morning, a 1965 film directed by Anthony Simmonds and starring a young Judi Dench. It's an interesting film, which I caught on ITV one night at (naturally) 4 AM - unfortunately my VCR stopped before the very end.

Also worth a look is the 1968 film of John Osborne's play Inadmissible Evidence, starring Nicol Williamson. Trivia time: this was the last black and white British film made in the 1960s.

If Mike can have The Innocents (and I won't argue), then how about Jack Clayton's other 60s films - The Pumpkin Eater and Our Mother's House?

I'd imagine the audience for these on DVDs would be very small, but I can at least hope.

Well at least there's a decent R2 release of The Devil Ship Pirates, which is, despite many sites saying to the contrary, anamorphic widescreen.

EDIT; sadly not anamorphic. From www.zetaminor.com:

"Although the film carries Columbia Pictures Corporation branding, the UK rights to the film have evidently ended up with Studio Canal (who previously licensed the film for VHS release to the Lumiere label). The film is presented in slightly-windowboxed format, in an aspect ratio of about 2.2:1. The disc is, inexplicably, in non-anamorphic format, perhaps explaining why the disc's sleeve sates the film is in "1.33:1" ratio."

It's amazing the sheer number of titles getting announcements now. Just can't believe that I'm soon to have Bringing Up Baby and Pierrot Le Fou on DVD

L'Armata Brancaleone (aka For Love and Gold, ?) (1966) - Vittorio Gassman.
If you haven't seen it (it's a bit neglected one and rare),if it ever gets a decent dvd release with english subtitles(there is only an italian release if i'm not mistaken, and a brazilian one but poorly translated), don't miss it by any means. One of the best comedies ever.

The Naked Prey http://imdb.com/title/tt0060736/

Great and surprisingly violent adventure film from the 60's.

I'd also like to see a decent release of Our Town (1940). The R1 DVD is one of the most disgraceful transfers I've ever seen, with barely audible dialogue.

Interesting to see the number of wishes fulfilled since this thread was started...but there's a whole lot more!

The announcement of John Wayne's The High and The Mighty has me hankering for a couple of other decent flying pics; Dana Andrews, Rhonda Fleming and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. in The Crowded Sky and Glenn Ford, Nancy Kwan and Rod Taylor in Ralph Nelson's Fate is The Hunter. Don't watch either before you jet off on your hols...

2. F for Fake - Orson Welles

3. It Always Rains on Sunday - Robert Hamer

4. If.... - Lindsay Anderson

5. Johnny Guitar - Nick Ray

6. I Walked with a Zombie - Jacques Tourneur (let's have lots more quality transfers of Tourneur's film please. I will not buy the poor ones available at the moment)

7. The Offence - Sidnet Lumet (plus The Hill and Prince of the City for good measure)

8. Leave her to Heaven - John Stahl

9. Le Souffle au Coeur/Le Feu Follet/Ascenseur pour l'Echafaud/Lacombe Lucien etc.... - Loius Malle (where is the early Malle on dvd?)

10. Point Blank - John Boorman

11. Two or Three Things I Know about Her / Weekend - Godard.

12. Les Belles de Nuit - Rene Clair.

13. Last Year in Marienbad - Alain Resnais

14. Ride the High Country / Pat Garrett - Sam Peckinpah

15. Hail the Conquering Hero - Preston Sturges

That should keep me going for a while.
Good to look back at my list and see that many of these are available or on their way
