Dream DVDs: Special Editions and Box Sets That Could Be

I'd like to see a DVD boxed set release along the lines of the old "Dawn of Sound" laserdisc set.

I can come up with about three volumes of stuff as follows:

 

V1-Lights of New York/Hollywood Revue/Show of Shows/The Big House/Disraeli/A Matrimonial Bed

 

V2- Noah's Ark/Sally/Under a Texas Moon/Dawn Patrol (1930)/The Last of Mrs. Cheney (1929)/Untamed

 

V3- The Singing Fool/So Long Letty/The Unholy Night/Coquette/Min & Bill/Madame X (1929)

 

These should all belong to Warner Home Video.

If they only want to put out one volume I'd include the following:

 

The Singing Fool (1928 Part Talkie with Al Jolson)

Lights of New York (First All Talking Picture, but horribly creaky)

Hollywood Revue (The best of the all-star revues of the early talkie era)

Disraeli (early Academy Award Best Actor winner)

Min & Bill (early sound comedy)

The Big House (First film to win Academy Award for best sound)

 

I omitted "Hallelujah" and "Broadway Melody" because they're already on DVD.

The problem with all of this is I'm probably the only person who would buy such a set.
