Essential Region B-locked / C-locked BD's

So, with Region-Free BD players a reality now, what are the Region-locked essentials that are worth it? As in, unreleased in the Region A market, or better than the Region A market.

I know Fox region-codes their titles and so do Disney, but they are the exact same in content, pretty much.

So, as a person who has none starting this thread, I was hoping others can chime in!

Night of the Living Dead UK region B
The Red Shoes UK region B HMV exclusive
The Good, The Bad, The Wierd region B
These are my wants but I'm not quite ready to commit to purchasing a region free player for them.

As I feared, the upcoming BFI Blu-rays of The Innocents and The Leopard will be Region B. Those two would certainly qualify as essential. At least with The Leopard there's the possibility of an eventual Criterion Blu-ray.
