Hi All,

I know this subject has been covered before, however, exciting new releases are occurring at a rapid rate and I thought an updated thread might be in order. I'm also very interested in getting your most passionate responses now for a Pinterest Board I'm preparing on the subject. I'd personally be thrilled to learn of those films or television series I'm not familiar with, so feel free to wax poetically about why your choice should be released NOW! Really poor quality, censored, or non-subtitled DVDs that should be re-issued are fine to include but if you know that an excellent, legitimate transfer exists on another region I'd prefer it be left out. There are, after all, cheap multi-region players out there for one to satisfy a deep desire to see (let alone own) one's favorite film(s).

Any accompanying posters, stills or clips are most welcome.

John Frankenheimer's 1982 film The Challenge has never seen a legit release. I'd love to have it.

Thanks for those. I've posted all 3 after verifying No English Subtitles on the 1, No DVD on the other and only the Spanish language version on the 3rd. (I'd never heard of Nunez' Gal Young Un before...have you seen it and if so would you recommend it?)

Len Deighton's Game, Set, and Match 13 part TV series from 1988 ... the story goes that the author has withheld the rights which is a great shame as it's a fabulous series with a host of wonderful stars led by Ian Holm.

See: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092360/?ref_=fn_al_tt_4

Claude Lelouch's "Live For Life" (perhaps a French release?)

Hal Prince's "Something For Everyone"

And Sidney J. Furie's "Sheila Levine Is Dead And Living In New York"

Shameful all.

“Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!” – James Whitmore’s one-man show about Harry Truman was taped during two separate performances on the 14th and 15th of June 1975 at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. The two performances were the final shows in a nine-city tour that broke box office records in each city. The performances were taped with nine video cameras under the direction of Steve Binder. The video tape was later transferred to 35mm film, and the film was released to theaters in September 1975 before eventually playing on TV a few years later. Whitmore was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award. There have been plenty of one-person shows over the years on stage and TV, but this is one of the few that got a theatrical release.

Though I'm not fond of the movie, Looking For Mr Goodbar hasn't been release since the age of VHS.

Another vote from me. I really liked that film.

Another I would buy in an instant is the Jimmy Stewart film, Fool's Parade.

“W.C. Fields and Me” – Along with “Gable and Lombard,” this was one of two 1976 Universal Studios’ biopics of stars from Hollywood’s golden age. This one cast Rod Steiger as Fields, Jack Cassidy as John Barrymore, and Valerie Perrine as Carlotta Monti, Fields’ live-in secretary, and upon whose book the film is based. The film probably deserves to be seen for no other reason than its Henry Mancini score (the LP of which has yet to surface on CD). The film has never been released on any video format, but is currently available as a download.

Thanks for that one, Bob. I "Pinterested" it! An additional thanks for letting us know about releases on DVD or Blu-Ray we may have missed.

For me it's very disturbing and too long and meandering but for the performances and its realistic depiction of her dual lifestyle, it deserves a release so I've posted it. Thanks.
