I think, for the most part, this is going to become a list of Criterions that are out of print. That being said, mine are:

Charade
Dead Ringers

I'd say any single DVD that SELLS for $50+ on e-bay could be considered valuable. Off the top of my head that would include:

Little Shop of Horrors 1st release w/alt ending

Some OOP Disneys:
Lady and the Tramp
Jungle Book
and a few more I'm sure

Some OOP Criterions:

Salo
The Killer
Hard Boiled
Spinal Tap

(not sure if the rest sell for more than $50)

Aeon Flux

The OOP Marx brothers movies

I'm sure there are more, I just can't recall them now.

Since a disc's "value" is based on what someone might be willing to pay for it, the easiest thing would be to check on eBay and sort by highest price.

I recently sold my Lady and the Tramp and Jungle Book LE's for over 50 bucks each. I think The Little Mermaid and 101 Dalmations are pretty expensive now too, but my kids won't let me sell them.

Also, the Disney Treasure tins of cartoons are worth a lot more than the $20 retail price.

THe funny thing about 'collector's items' is that real collectors items aren't expected to be collector's items - they just become so. Think of Original Star Wars figures - or old glass pop bottles - no one expected these things to become worth money - they just did...

The Lucertola release of Mario Bava's Rabid Dogs is pretty good, sold mine for $100 on ebay recently. Would have sold Sid and Nancy but the extras are so much better. I heard Double Indemnity will fetch some bucks.

Eraserhead is probably the most Valuable 1-disc DVD without even being OOP.

More like the most CRAPPY DVD without being OOP.

Another one to add could be Mulan.

Going strictly by eBay frenzy would have you guessing that 2 disc copies of Fight Club and the recently OOP versions of Alien and Aliens are rather valuable.

Which goes back to my motto - If it has to be labeled as a "collectors item", then it probably isn't.

I wouldn't ever sell my Little Mermaid, but 101 Dalmations pretty much blows (IMO), so I might try to make a few bucks off of that one.
