What lost movies do you wish were available domestically on DVD that haven't made the leap to the digital arena yet?

It's a long list for me, but here the first few that came to mind (And I'd love to be wrong about any of these, so please let me know if I am). I'd love to hear what others are looking for as well...

RAMPAGE, William Friedkin
SORCERER (letterboxed), William Friedkin
DARKER THAN AMBER, Robert Clouse
DREAMS OF GLASS, Robert Clouse
CHINA 9, LIBERTY 37, Monte Hellman
FLIGHT TO FURY, Monte Hellman
BACK DOOR TO HELL, Monte Hellman
TIGER BAY, J. Lee Thompson
SCREAM FOR HELP, Michael WInner
THE NIGHTCOMERS, Michael Winner

Well, now that Baby Doll is coming and we're seeing more Buñuel (though we really need all )...I would say a trashy little mostly unloved Jim Thompson adaptation called This World Then The Fireworks is right up there...also there's a movie called Emerald Cities I wouldn't mind...and Superstar (the barbie doll Karen Carpenter movie, not the SNLsploitation movie)...and a US release of Moolaadé perhaps most of all...

Not sure how mainstream it was at the time? 'Evil Roy Slade' starring John Astin as the meanest villain in the west.

I'm surprised you didn't mention Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop, no longer available, a used copy at Amazon is offered at $250! A letterboxed Sorcerer would be great. I think it is much superior to Clozout's original The Wages of Fear.

My list is endless, especially foreign films. I'd settle for all of Mizoguchi and Ozu for the next year or two.

But, also, Roman Polanski's Cul-De-Sac, and a bunch of Harold Pinter scripted flics - Joseph Losey's The Go-Between, William Friedkin's The Birthday Party, Jack Clayton's The Pumpkin Eater, and Clive Donner's The Caretaker.

"Inevitable Grace" tops my list. It has never even been available on videotape. I've been wanting to see this movie since it came out in 1994, but I may never get to since I doubt that it will ever come out on DVD.

Another movie on my list is "Begotten". It used to be available on DVD, but it is now out of print. I hope that some video company will rerelease it someday. Fortunately, I have seen this movie.

Edited to correct this post.

Rjk13, I should have included Two-Lane Blacktop - I own the tin-box collectors' edition that came out a few years back, with the booklet and documentary, glad I snagged it when it came out a few years ago.

Friedkin's The Birthday Party, The Night They Raided Minsky's, and The Brink's Job were all staples of late night TV back in the day, and although they all have problems I'd love to see them make it to DVD.

John Frankenheimer's Grand Prix.

James Garner, Eva-Marie Saint, Yves Montand, and F1 cars before ground effects. Yeah, the story needs help, but the 60s race footage kicks ass.

Sands of the Kalahari 1965

Fraulein Doktor 1969 Dino De Laurentis

Don Juan 1926...are you listening Turner Classics?

*The first two movies are available special from a specialty hard to find movie site on ebay. But these copies are in sub par quality. Since these were big major productions of the 60s it's unbelievable that they've never had a VHS, Laserdisc or even a Betamax release in the last thirty years since home video has been around. It would be nice to have the major American company that released them, Paramount, to fix up a great DVD with interviews of surviving actors and personnel and outtakes & trailer footage as is the norm in most classic movie dvds.

I'm glad that I'm not the only person who remembers that movie. Bing Bell. "Is there somebody at the door?"

I'd also love to see Lassiter and High Road to China with Tom Sellock finally come out on DVD. It just seems wrong for Runaway to be out on DVD while those two are restricted to VHS and cable...

I can't believe no one's mentioned Nicolas Roeg's

It's one of my favorite films, it's been called the "Greatest British Film Ever" and several rock stars absolutely worship it (Courtney Love, Suede, Primal Scream.)

Unfortunately, I've resigned myself to the fact that we'll NEVER see the original uncut version. But a Criterion Collection version would be nice. A small cult of people are eagerly awating it but they think they're so cool, they'll probably never admit to it.

Hit! (1973) with Billy Dee Williams, Richard Pryor & Gwen Welles. A long movie at over 2 hours and a better than average action flick. Hard to find even on VHS. This is often confused as a blaxploitation film but it's not that. It's a topnotch police/crime drama and some compare it to Soderberg's Traffick .

Croy, according to TheDigitalBits.com, Emperor Of The North ('73) is scheduled for Dvd release on June 6th 2006.- Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine's climactic showdown is one of the most bad ass fight scenes ever put on film.

Myself, I've just about given up on The African Queen ('51) ever hitting disc.

Crazy Borgnine rocks.

African Queen didn't make it? I just assumed it had. Is there some legal/property right dispute holding this up? Get some commentary about Bacall (I know she wasn't in the movie) saying how Bogie was drunk the whole time.

Vice Squad(1982)the reviews on IMDb are hilarious. But i remember it as a slick well made pimp/prostitute chiller. Could be fixed up as a great DVD with backup/bonus material such as interviewing the cast members, director, trailer, and as much cutting room floor footage as can be found.

It's out. IIRC, it came out in early April since I picked it up to check it out on Netflix. Nate and Hayes , with Tommy Lee Jones as a peglegged pirate went off my "this will never come out on DVD" list yesterday, and next week "Gwendoline" aka "The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of Yik-Yak" arrives in both the US theatrical release and an unrated director's cut. I really wish they would have been released in a 2-disc set...

Thanks YD. And although they didn't make it on my top 10 earlier in this post, more of my favorite missing movies - The Quiller Memorandum, Operation Crossbrow, The Illustrated Man, and Von Richtofen And Brown by Roger Corman all appeared in the last couple months as well.
It hasn't been a great year for unearthing true grindhouse-era obsurities, but 2007 has been golden for bringing back classic studio pictures that've been languishing in the OOP/ VHS abyss for the last two decades.
One of my main wishes at this point is to see more of Paul Morrissey's post-Andy Warhol films make it to DVD, like Hound Of The Baskervilles and (especially) Beethoven's Nephew.

Crooks & Coronets- (w/Telly Savalas, Warren Oates, Cesar Romero Dame Edith Evans and the actor who later played Captain Peacock on "Are You Being Served". This comedy I used to love every time it showed up on broadcast tv in the 70s & 80s albeit in a cut version. I remember Savalas & Oates being chased up a tree by a lion and it used to crack my family up everytime.

I can see where A Bullet in the Head might be out of print but I'm surprised The Killer would be. They just came out with a special edition Hard Boiled two disc set. I imagine this will happen with The Killer in the near future.

I've seen "The Last Dinosaur" included in those Dollar Store "twofer" DVDs before. Not sure if this particular one is still available. It certainly deserves a higher end re-release.

I don't think "The Last Dinosaur" is available anymore, but I've seen bootleggers trying to sell the Japanese version copied onto disc.
I'd also like to see "Valley of the Wolves : Iraq". It was oringinally released overseas in 2006. No U.S. release yet.

Despite a filmography that includes the first two James Bond movies (Dr. No / From Russia With Love), alot of Terence Young's films haven't made it to DVD here (or have already gone OOP). I'm specifically looking for Mayerling (1968 version, with Omar Shariff and Catherine Deneuve) and Red Sun with Charles Bronson.
The latter is already going for $129.00 on Amazon!

Goliath Awaits(1981-two part tv movie)
His Private Secretary(1933)early John Wayne and not a western. Saw parts of it on a local PBS station one Sunday morning and I've been trying to find ever since.Impossible. Evelyn Knapp was memorable in this obscure Wayne title.

thanks for that Flash. Probably no preprint materials or camera negative survive for a flick of this vintage. Come to think of it that PBS copy wasn't all that great either but being an early Monogram or Republic I don't expect great preservation.

This has started cropping up on bargain bin DVDs from PD specialists like Brentwood. The print's no great shakes, and its not letterboxed (a shame since this is one of Hellman's only widescreen movies). But hey, it was only a buck and at least it doesn't have Danish subtitles (like the VHS version I've had until now.)
