    Travel and of course, movies, especially the oldies.
  1. When TCM went all digital that means all their movies have to be in a digital format to be shown. They cannot be VHS tape or Laserdisc or 35 or 16 mm film or any analog form(the old format). So a good reason some movies are not shown anymore on TCM is they have not been digitized to be shown in that newer format yet. I know my Comcast cable system is now all digital for every channel. Blu-ray is a high definition DVD player that Sony is pushing. HD-DVD is a different high definition format that other companies are favoring. They are not compatible.

Strange Cargo, The Mask of Dimitrios and Edge of Darkness should make the cut. My personal favorite It All Came True could also squeeze in a Bogey box set because it is an Ann Sheridan-Humphrey Bogart musical-comedy that deserves to be more widely seen. Making a list of potential releases would be an interesting exercise in wish fulfillment.
