  • Well I don't really have much hope for this myself, but it can't hurt. If you enter TCM's website and go to John Wayne's biography found here:

    On the filmography at the far left press the more link you get all his movies listed. Click on any individual film and you can vote on it. This is to help show interest for having it released on DVD. Of course it would mean voting for those not released yet.


    Well I voted on a couple and intend to vote on more the coming days. Maybe if we all went in and did this it could help their chances.

  • PV, THANKS for the heads up on this opportunity.


    They even tell us why we should vote on a title -

    Because we'll routinely send your votes to major Home video distributors responsible for releasing classic movies on to DVD. So go ahead and vote and let your voice be heard!

    I just went through and checked out every title I don't have. Quite a few are currently not available, so I voted for those. Some are available, so now I know I can get them if I want them.


    Did anybody notice that The Shootist wasn't listed in that filmography? How weird is that?


    And what's up with this listing in Duke's filmography?

  • The only one on that list that I could think of really wanting that hadn't been "officially" released was Circus World. Not that its a great movie or anything but its another one of those that I remember watchign with my dad while growing up. Would be nice to throw it in once in awhile to reminisce.

  • Just going over some of my movie website's that post info on upcoming DVD releases and I come across this that was posted by the guys over at The Digital Bits :

    There are some rumors surfacing that MGM will release the complete director's cut of John Wayne's The Alamo (as previously available only on the special edition laserdisc) by mid-2009. This would be a delightful release for the film's devoted fans, so let's hope there's some truth to it, especially if a Blu-ray version is also in the works.

  • That's great Todd. It would be great to see that movie released in its complete from.

    Is there any other news of other Duke movies being released? These are the movies that have not been released prior to 1939.

    Wheel Of Fortune
    Lady From Louisiana
    Lady For A Night
    War Of The Wildcats
    The Barbarian And The Geisha
    Circus World
    I Married A Woman (a cameo appearance)

    I will have all of the movies when these are released.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo

  • Hello Hondo
    Happily,DVD of "Circus World" and "The Barbarian and The Geisha" has
    been already released in Japan. ofcourse I bought them.

  • Taka,

    These are movies in Region 1. I'm not sure what is your region, and what movies are released. But I will be glad to see about it. What region are you in?

  • I believe that region 2 is Japan Mike.


    SxViper is right.
    It explains the region code of DVD to make sure though it is thought what you know.
    From Wikipedia, DVD discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.
    The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region.
    the purpose of this is to allow motion pictures studios to control aspects
    of a release,including content,release date,and,especially,price,according to the region.
    region code 1s area is U.S. territories,Canada ,Bermuda.
    and code 2 's area is Western and central Europe and Japan,U.K. French.
    But, about Blu-ray Disc is different.
    In region for Blu-ray standard,area of region A is America and East Asia.
    Happily Japan and U.S.A. has the same code. waoh,Idon't have Blu-ray disc.:cry2:

    regards.

  • This is probably old news to all you folks but I just discovered that Paramount is releasing these films as 2 disc editions to celebrate the studio's 100th anniversary. (*Since I am already committed to this, I just decided to post the info on both of them. I apologize for the trouble this may cause.)

  • I feel like such an idiot.... I checked the posts for each of the movies respective threads and saw nothing. then I checked the General threads and found nothing. But I failed to check the movie reviews board.
    Thanks for moving it.


    It's no problem.
    A few months ago, Chester and I,
    scoured all the threads, and found endless
    ones, relating to new releases.
    We set about merging them all into one 'super-thread'
    and of course the best place to place it, was in the Movies
    Forum.


    Thanks for you post and your support.

    Best Wishes
