Things I wish would be released on DVD ...

... (just in case somebody in the business happens across this journal ***extremely optimistic expression***)

Laura: 'cause I know who did it and why and I can still watch it over and over and over ...

Robinson Crusoe on Mars: despite the corny title, the first half is an incredible depiction of the effects of isolation ... the scene where Paul Mantee is hallucinating that his dead co-astronaut has come to "visit" him is beyond creepy. (yeah, the second half is rather silly, but that's what the "stop" button is for. And it grows on ya after a while).

After the Thin Man: and all the rest of the Thin Man movies as well ... I adore William Powell and when he's teamed with Myrna Loy, he transcends adorable.

Libeled Lady: while I'm wishing for Powell and Loy, why not wish for Powell and Loy teamed up with Spencer Tracy and Jean Harlow?

Medicine River: half an hour into this made-for-TV movie, I got off the couch and sat on the floor, on the theory that I was less likely to injure myself when I fell over laughing. Tom Jackson as a conman and Graham Greene as his bewildered straight man ... BRILLIANT!!!!! (the original novel by Thomas King is also a must-read)

Sex and Chocolate: one of the, if you'll pardon the term, sweetest (as well as charming and believable) romances I've ever seen.

I'm sure I'll think of more as soon as I hit "Update Journal", but these will do nicely to start with.
