Our votes will decide which of the following films are released onto DVD by Warner Home Video, so go vote.



  • All Fall Down (1962)

  • Bathing Beauty (1944)

  • Captains of the Clouds (1942)

  • Dive Bomber (1941)

  • Edge of the City (1957)

  • Greed (1924)

  • I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932)

  • Ice Station Zebra (1968)

  • International Velvet (1978)

  • Ivanhoe (1952)

  • Kansas City Bomber (1972)

  • King Solomon's Mines (1950)

  • The Letter (1940)

  • Lust for Life (1956)

  • Operation Crossbow (1965)

  • Party Girl (1958)

  • Random Harvest (1942)

  • The Search (1948)

  • The Shoes of the Fisherman (1968)

  • Test Pilot (1938)



Any thoughts on these films? We get five votes, and I know I'm voting for Greed and Party Girl, but after that I don't know. Hmm.

Cool, I'm voting... I'd love to see I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG and GREED on DVD.

Yes I voted. I don't remember which five I voted for with the exception of the two I really wanted to see on there. (perhaps I should have waited?)



Anyways



Greed is an absolute must, one of the greatest and most imfamous silent films made. It tells a great story and it's very compelling and entertaining to boot. I really cared for McTeague (I think that was his name, going by memory). Great scenes, great story, great morality play, just a great film. For it to not get the DVD treatment would be a real shame.



The other film I voted for was The Search, staring my all time favorite actor, Montgomery Clift. It's a story about a lost child during WW2, who is basically adopted by Clift and helps him find his mother. Fred Zinneman (High Noon, From Here to Eternity) directed it and gave it an almost pseudo documentary style. Clift is great as always and while he plays a character with a lot of passion it's nice to seem him play out of character from his almost typecasted tragic romantic type parts, proving that he DOES have range.





So those are the two I voted for and hope you will to. Also The Letter with Bette Davis I'm planning on watching in the next few days.

Monty Clift was one of the greatest, most important actors of his generation. Most people remember him for From Here to Eternity, but I prefer his work in Red River, A Place in the Sun, The Heiress, I Confess, and especially Kazan's Wild River, made after a car accident altered that lean, beautiful face--it's an unforgettable performance that hinges upon newfound insecurity.

The results:



http://www.turnerclassicmovies.com/MovieNews/Index/0,,82731,00.html



The five winners:



  • The Letter

  • Ice Station Zebra

  • Ivanhoe

  • Random Harvest

  • King Solomon's Mines



No Greed? I thought for sure it'd be one of the top five.



I still have the 4-hour version of Greed taped, from TCM, but I haven't watched it yet. I prefer to watch movies in one sitting, even long ones, but I have a feeling I might have to make two nights of it.
