Film Noir and Gangsters. Oh, and the Bogart depending on what's on it.

Anyone know if they're planning a second set of classic comedies?

You forgot the Tough Guys Collection. That's the one I'm most looking forward to. From your list, I'd pick Bogart.

If the Bogie set is basically a line-up of SEs w/ the Maltese Falcon and African Queen, then ... yeah, that one.

The John Wayne-John Ford Collection, of the ones which have been announced.

Astaire & Rogers Collection: Volume 2, of those which are still rumored.

The upcoming 14-disc Superman set for me too.

I think they're releasing a Bette Davis set too, but the only one I want from it is the 2-disc SE of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane...

I'm looking forward to several of the, but particularly the Gable and Ford/Wayne boxes—and the Jean Harlow set, if it comes this year.

There's also a Bogie & Bacall set due, including a new version of "The Big Sleep", which I am looking forward to.

It's the same version as is currently available, I'm afraid.

I'm saving my pennies for Mr Ford and Mr Wayne...

Didn't WB mention that Forbidden Planet is coming in Oct and will also be part of a classic sci-fi set? I'm looking forward to a lot of these, but will be very curious about that one . . .

WB keeps me in a constant state of arousel - of those listed in the OP, the Astaire & Rogers is probably my most anticipated.
