a few films I' d like to see on DVD:

INFERNO (man left to die in desert by his wife and her boyfriend)
LEGEND OF LIZZIE BORDEN (Elizabeth Montgomery plays the lady with an axe to grind)
FINAL JEOPARDY (young out-of-town couple pursued thru the city at night by street gang)
GODFATHER SAGA (the 3 films run into one, in sequence, with deleted scenes included (I believe done for TV))

and aren't these overdue for special edition treatment?:

WUTHERING HEIGHTS (Lawrence Olivier)
JANE EYRE (Orson Welles)

I'd like to add one of my favorite films to your list,
The Hungarian film 'My Twentieth Century' (Én XX. századom, Az), 1989.
A lot of U.S. film critics thought it was one of the best movies released that year.

i want to see Fatherland starring rutger hauer on dvd

its about what if Hitler had won the second world war...but there is something in germany that isnt a ss police officer (hauer) and an american reporter struggle to unravel the conspiracy (the killing of the jews)

this is a thrilling movie that should be on dvd already !

NIGHT OF THE GENERALS - Omar Sharif as a wartime police inspector on the trail of an even-more-psychotic-than-most Nazi general, exquisitely played by Peter O'Toole. Excellent support playing from the likes of Tom Courtney and Donald Pleasance. Based on the novel by H.H. Kirsch, and all set against the backdrop of the Valkyrie plot!

THE KRAYS - Peter Medak directed this stylish biopick of the two most feared gangsters in swinging 1960s London: Ronnie and Reggie, the Kray brothers. Beautifully portrayed by the real life Kemp twins of Spandau Ballet fame, ably supported by Billie Whitelaw and others. A chilling portrayal of two men who made a lifestyle of fear and a profession of violence.

A STUDY IN TERROR - The first Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper movie (1965), based on a novel by Ellery Queen, predates Bob Clark's Murder by Decree (1979). Though not up to the high standard of Clark's film, A Study in Terror has its own share of thrills and chills, as well as some of the same cast, including Frank Findley in the same role as Inspector Lestrade!

Three of the best ever! So why no DVDs?

An UNCUT, WIDESCREEN version of "The Pirates of Penzance" (the movie - not the theater production) with Kevin Kline and Linda Ronstadt would make about a gazillion people's day.

Orson Welles' follow-up to Citizen Kane, Magnificent Ambersons. It's a better story than Kane and I am SO TIRED of showing Kane in every film class I teach! It would be so nice to rotate between them.

@ Jacob G. Castellaw:

Yes! that makes you low- brow, and everything else...Vibes shouldn't never been made at all. Vibes is one of the worst movies in history.

I wish the following Samuel Goldwyn films would get an official release on DVD:

The Dark Angel (1935)
These Three (1936)
Beloved Enemy (1937)
Up In Arms (1944)

And of course, Wuthering Heights (1939) - a special edition please!

If there is anybody out there from MGM and Twentieth Century Fox Home entertainment - you have released other Goldwyn films on DVD - please take note of this post!!!

'She', the 1960's version with Ursula Andress, not the '30s B/W version.

This Earth is Mine, with Rock Hudson, deserves to be released as a special edition.It was shot in the California wine country, has a beautiful sound track and was interesting
and entertaining.

The Competition has wonderful classical music, a fine cast and pretty good acting. Just for the sound and intensity of the stage performances, it richly deserves to be on DVD. Please!?
