Those are my most wanted DVDs right there.

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

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?

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.
