A very nice list has been already posted. To this I would add, Interrupted Melody (1955), which I thought was fantastic! A great performance was given by Eleanor Parker, but the singing was done by Eileen Farrell. I also thought that Glenn Ford was excellent in this.

Good question! I'd say: Diamond Horseshoe, Song of the Islands, Footlight Serenade, Summer Holiday, Look for the Silver Lining, Daughter of Rosie O'Grady, and almost any of June Haver's movies.

Any of Deanna Durbin's movies that haven't already been released.

 

Any of Kathryn Grayson's movies that haven't been released

 

Any of Alice Faye's movies that haven't been released.

 

ONE NIGHT OF LOVE (1934)

 

I'd also like to see more of Jane Powell's movies on DVD. I don't really like her characters in her early films, but I enjoy her singing.

 

I'm also a fan of INTERRUPTED MELODY, and would like to see that one get a DVD release.

 

It would be nice to see some of Gloria Jean's movies on DVD other than IF I HAD MY WAY, which was released as part of a Bing Crosby Collection.

 

HIGH, WIDE AND HANDSOME

 

SHOW BOAT (1936)

 

INCENDIARY BLONDE

 

HAPPY GO LUCKY

 

SING YOU SINNERS

 

THE STAR MAKER

I like your selections too. When I saw "One Night of Love", it reminded me of another movie that Grace Moore made - entitled "When You're In Love". Her leading man was Cary Grant. It was such a good film. So I would add that one as well.

A lot of good titles have already been mentioned. I would add *Springtime in the Rockies.* I love those 40's Fox musicals. I heard in another thread it might be on the Betty Grable volume 2 collection which is rumored to be in the works.

I think "Yolanda" is scheduled for release soon. I read that somewhere.

 

McDonald/Eddy films apparently need a lot of restoration, but imagine they'll pop up eventually in a set.

 

I'd like to see some of the early Technicolor musicals (Follow Thru, Viennese Nights, Vagabond King)

 

Second some of the Jane Powell films (Girl Most LIkely, Holiday in Mexico, Date with Judy)

 

Love "Thousands Cheer" and suprised it hasn't made it to disc yet.

DATE WITH JUDY has recently been released on DVD

 

Other musicals I would like to see on DVD include:

 

GENTLEMEN MARRY BRUNETTES

EVERYTHING I HAVE IS YOURS

I LOVE MELVIN

CENTENNIAL SUMMER

Is "Skirts Ahoy" included in the Ester Williams set? I saw it for the first time a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Shame I couldn't record the film.

I'm patiently waiting for Volume 2 of the Esther Williams Collection.

 

I think there's a few more Doris Day movies that haven't made it into her previous 2 collections that I would like to have on dvd.

ANY of Kay Kyser's 7 feature films. None have been released on DVD. Matter of fact, this 'Big Bands in July' thing currently playing has shown only one -'That's Right, You're Wrong'. Wake up, TCM!!!
