2012 TCM Film Festival as Platform for Upcoming BR Releases

Realizing how the TCM Film Festival has become a platform to exhibit new restorations and perhaps even assess the potential of a catalog film releases on Blu-Ray, I decided this thread will create a good reference for any related discussion:

2012 Festival Line-Up
ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT - Restoration premiere: Released on BR Jan 2012
CABARET (1972) - Premiere of 40th anniversary restoration, late 2012 BR release appears to be a certainty.
CALL HER SAVAGE (1932) - 80th anniversary restoration.
CASABLANCA (1942) - 70th anniversary restoration; Release due in March 2012.
CHINATOWN (1974) - BR release scheduled for April 2012.
GIRL SHY (1924)
GODFATHER II (1974) - already released on BR
GRAND ILLUSION (1937) - 75th anniversary restoration: to be released in UK and France soon, hopefully this means a Region A release is not far behind.
GUN CRAZY (1950)
HOW THE WEST WAS WON (1962) - Already released on BR
LOVE STORY (1979) - released Feb 7, 2012
RAW DEAL (1948)
SABRINA (1954)
SINGIN IN THE RAIN (1952) - 60th anniversary restoration premiere, Late 2012 BR confirmed
THE THIEF OF BAGDAD (1924) - Fairbanks' Pirate was released on BR last year, so hopefully that means this gem is coming soon.
TWO FOR THE ROAD (1967) - 45 anniversary restoration
WINGS (1927) - released Jan 2012
THE WOMEN (1939) - Hopefully "new print" means BR release likely.

Swing Time

Cabaret and the Hepburns seem like no-brainers

Cabaret is a must as Warner never did justice to on DVD by releasing it non-anamorphic.

A Blu-ray of Gun Crazy seems unlikely, but would be welcome news. Also, Nothing Sacred was released by Kino in December.

It would be awesome to get Two For the Road on BD. My wife and I just watched this movie last night and really liked it. Very original, great cinematography, great costume, clever script, etc.
