MISSING LIZ MOVIES ON DVD,
This review is from: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Film Collection (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf 2-Disc Special Edition / The Comedians / The Sandpiper / The V.I.P.s) 5 Disc Set (DVD)
The movie BOOM was obviously not included as it is a Universal release, whereas the 4 titles are Warners and MGM[library owned by Warners]. My big gripe is the fact that Elizabeth Taylor's MGM movies from the '50s are still not available on DVD: Beau Brummell, Rhapsody, a decent transfer of The Last Time I Saw Paris, Raintree County, The Girl Who had Everything. These are now owned by Warners, and it's a disgrace that they have never been released on DVD. Hopefully, with the new Liz/Burton collection, someone at Warners is paying attention. A gem in the new collection is THE VIP's - made after Cleopatra and rushed into release before Cleo hit the screens, to capitalise on the red-hot duo, the movie is glossy, all-star fun.

I agree, am waiting for a remaster of "Raintree County". What's the problem? I don't think most of the producers of DVD's have seen any of the films from the '50's.

I too, absolutely agree with you! I have been waiting for years for 'Beau Brummell', 'Raintree County' and various of Elizabeth's MGM movies from the 1950's to be released on DVD. I live in England and from time to time I visit the Amazon's American website in the hope that I might spot one of my 'wish list' ET movies on Region 1. No luck so far.... I'm now hoping that, with the passing of this magnificent, iconic woman, whoever has charge of such things will put together a boxed set of Elizabeth's work. Goodness knows it is long, long overdue.

Probably licensing issues. Usually is the case when they can't get all of the films on one release. These are all Warner films. MGM is a different company and has the rights to many of the other films. So of course Warner can only box the films they have the rights to.
