2.) Distinct Possibilities: (Titles that haven't been fully confirmed yet, but have either been mentioned by Warner or linked to Warner by other events/companies)

BOWERY BOYS COLLECTIONS - All 48 films in multiple boxes were scheduled to begin releasing in 2006. Warner is now looking for better elements. There is no new release date.

THE COMPLETE SHOWBOAT - George Feltenstein has stated that he would like to release the '29, '36, and '51 versions as a boxed set, but no timeline has been given for production.

ZABRISKIE POINT - Mentioned for May 2005 release at Roger Waters Online. Obviously, that didn't happen, but Warner says that "it is under consideration (for release) at some point."

KUBRICK FILMS - Warner says, "It is very likely we will revisit the other Kubrick titles (LOLITA, BARRY LYNDON, FULL METAL JACKET) as well in the future."

Additional LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION sets - According to Jerry Beck, there are plans for ten total volumes.

TEX AVERY COLLECTION - Jerry Beck said at one time that he would be working as a consultant on these as well. He has, however deleted the post in which he mentioned this. As of June 2006, Warner was saying, "the tex avery cartoons all require a full restoration which will be VERY VERY expensive. For us to release them, in any substandard form would obviously not make you folks happy. We are trying to find the financing within the various divisions of the company to justify this undertaking."


3.) Remasters: (Titles that have been released, but are being reissued because new, better materials have come to light in the years since release.)


AN AMERICAN IN PARIS New special edition with Ultra-Resolution restoration. Coming in 2007.

BONNIE & CLYDE - Two-disc special edition coming in 2007.

COOL HAND LUKE - Special edition tentatively planned for 2007.

THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING - Special edition coming in 2007.

None of the films in the collection will come with commentary. This set is very skim on the extras.

Shearer, have you heard if the Motion Picture Masterpieces collection will have any audio commentaries? I don't see any listed on Amazon, but you would think with something historical there could be lots to talk about in comparing real versus reel.

TAKE A TRIP WITH OSCAR?-WINNERS CARY GRANT & KATHARINE HEPBURN IN THE CLASSIC FILM

HOLIDAY

- Available On DVD December 5-


CULVER CITY, CALIF. (September 25, 2006) ? Spend a Saturday night with two of Hollywood?s most beloved actors, Cary Grant (The Philadelphia Story, To Catch A Thief) and Katharine Hepburn (On Golden Pond, The Lion In The Winter) in the heartwarming drama HOLIDAY, available on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on December 5. Directed by George Cukor (Rich and Famous, My Fair Lady) and written by Broadway playwright Philip Barry (An Affair to Remember, Marie Antoinette), Holiday tells the story of liberal Johnny Case (Grant) who is betrothed to a millionaire's daughter, portrayed by actress Doris Nolan (Irene, Follies Girl), but eventually falls in love with his fianc??s sister (Hepburn). This film brilliantly illustrates why Grant is considered one of the most acclaimed actors in movie history and why he and Hepburn were perfectly paired together on-screen. The HOLIDAY DVD includes a ?Cary At Columbia? featurette along with an exclusive photo gallery and will be available for a SRP of $24.95.

Holiday

Grant plays free-spirited Johnny Case, a self-made man with a dream in his heart of making just enough money to retire on and then travel around the world. Johnny proposes to his girlfriend the lovely Julia (Nolan) in Lake Placid, but it isn't until he pays her a visit in New York that he discovers she's the daughter of a wealthy businessman. Although his nonconformity ruffles the feathers of Julia's stuffy father, he's soon won over the whole family--most notably, Julia's rebellious sister Linda (Hepburn), who in becoming Johnny's greatest advocate finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. With the help of his friends, Johnny makes up his mind as to which is the better course, and the better mate. This film is not rated and has a run time of 97 minutes.

DVD BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE

?Cary at Columbia? Featurette
Deleted Scenes Photo Montage

"American Madness " is rarely shown on TV. I may buy if all the films have an audio commentary. The only " bad thing " about the recently released John Wayne - John Ford Collection is that only " Stagecoach ", and " The Searchers " provided an audio commentary. The John Ford Collection which included " The Informer ', and "The Lost Patrol ", among its five films, none had an audio commentary. Shame on TCM !

Thanks to TCM for adding this new DVD Genre Forum. I've been wishing there was one spot where I could refer to upcoming releases. Thanks to Edgecliff and Shearerchic04 and their posts. I hope they'll continue to add them here. In the meantime I'll search through the other forums to cull some information for this new thread.
