Great movies you've yet to own on any media format?

mostly bluray, but DVD or digital as well. are there great movies that for whatever reason just never got around to owning, but always wanted to?

i've since rectified, but i never had The Bride of Frankenstein on anything. Kind of surprising since I loved Frankenstein and think I saw some of this and really enjoyed a long long time ago. Plus, some say it is better than Frankenstein. i think i saw that somewhere.

but, i did just get what i read is a good bluray, so that one, at least, is rectified. i'm sure this thread will remind me of others...

Our Man Flint and In Like Flint.

Really like these and had the DVDs, but sold them off a while ago thinking I'd get the Blu-rays, but I missed getting them when Twilight Time released them.

So now I play the waiting game again, or break down at some point and get the DVDs again.

Mountains of the Moon. For some reason, that was hardly ever released on any format. Would love to have a great remastered blu ray of that one.

Cold Turkey is a MGM/UA MOD.

Nothing well known but there are several lesser known titles I'd like to own.

Re: Great movies you've yet to own on any media format?

Oh, lots of stuff. I don't own Citizen Kane, Gone with the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, or anything by Stanley Kubrick. Why? Well, I didn't jump on the DVD bandwagon until 2006 or 2007, and since then have focused on rarer titles and imports, leaving stuff that will likely never go out of print for a time when I burn out on everything else.

Cannot think of one "Great" movie I do not own...now the definition of Great is subjective.
