Room at the Top
Sons and Lovers

Well, LA Confidential is available. In fact, it's been said that Warner plans on rereleasing it for the 10th Anniversary (although it looks unlikely that it'll be released in time).

LA Confidential is out. It's not the most comprehensive release though.

Unless you can get it very cheap, at this point I would just wait for a re-release of L.A. Confidential, which hopefully won't take too much longer. The disc came out in 1998 and the transfer is kinda dated now.

The Last Command (1928, Josef von Sternberg) is a biggie. Criterion has confirmed that they'll release some of his silents, which probably means they have the rights to the ones Paramount controls (the other two are Docks of New York and Underworld). Emil Jannings won an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance. I think it was only nominated for BP.
