:up: Those are my most wanted DVDs right there.

I'd also love to see Lubitsch's Merry Widow and Make Way For Tomorrow.

I'd love to see Lubitsch's To Be Or Not To Be make it DVD at all.

Any Lubitsch is good Lubitsch.

I also forgot the obvious Bringing Up Baby. :)

Any plans for a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers Special Edition Box Set??
 
Do any forum readers know if there are any plans afoot to produce a box set of the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movies from Flying Down To Rio to the RKO classics Shall We Dance etc? There is a Region 2 Box Set already out with introductions by Fred Astaire's daughter to each of four films. The set is good but there is room for improvement.

The Informer, but a complete John Ford Collection would be wonderful.

Have you all overlooked Gigli? :eyebrow:

In the 1990s Ted Turner issued a number of titles in the RKO Library laser disc collection. Among these were at least 10 Wheeler & Woolsey's, in beautiful prints with complete RKO logos.

Here's wishing ...

Two minds and a single thought.
Yes, it's about all they can handle at one time. - from Hips, Hips, Hooray!

I have Half Shot at Sunrise, and Hook, Line and Sinker, and I need to get Dixiana one of these days.

I have Sillie Billies, Peach O'Reno, Diplomaniacs, and Hook Line and Sinker on laserdisc, which were blind buys in a closeout sale. I am very grateful that I picked those up.
