Max Dugan Returns- I mention it on quite a few forums yet noone seems to have heard of it before.

Torch Song Trilogy - My favorite film. I can't believe it's not on DVD yet.

BTW, I saw Max Dugan Returns at the dollar theater when it came out.
I barely remember it though.

Two that I can think of...

Get Crazy - Alan Arkush's follow-up to "Rock and Roll High School." The best comedy no one has ever seen.

Twice Upon a Time - G. Lucas's only exploration into film animation from the early 80's. Directed by John Korty, its what would happen if someone tried to make a Terry Gilliam cartoon while on acid. DVD would have to have both soundtracks (family friendly and a bit naughty). Also has a great opening theme song by a then unknown Bruce Hornsby.

First - on the post by shill66. I'd like to see those titles too

There are quite a few "obscure" titles I'd like to see on DVD. In fact, I'd guess that I could find hundreds if I took the time to put together a comprehensive list

Try these five for starters

Shout at the Devil (1976)

Dr. Kildare's Wedding Day (1941)

Locket, The (1946)

Million Dollar Baby (1941)

Earl of Chicago, The (1940)
