Of course, when you spend up to $300K on just one film, it becomes difficult making a profit.
I fear we may never see the RKO, MGM and remaining WB 3-D titles ever again.
Second Chance, Dangerous Mission, The French Line, Son of Sinbad, The Moonlighter, The Charge at Feather River, Phantom of the Rue Morgue, Lumber Jack-Rabbit, The Bounty Hunter, Popeye, the Ace of Space, Louisiana Territory etc. just locked away in the vaults.

What happened to the releases of titles that were never available on DVD before?I think they've hit a point where a big chunk of the remaining unreleased titles: (1) are so obscure that it's hard to justify a remaster; or (2) are bogged down in legal and/or element problems. People have remarked about this on their Facebook page, and they reassure fans that they are still committed to bringing out unreleased stuff.

Should I be moving titles like Men Must Fight (1933) from my MGM wants list to my WB wants list? I assume this has absolutely no effect on any acquired titles, i.e. UA or AIP ?

Only way for me to buy these is well down the road from release date from third party sellers on Amazon.ca (if ever!) or pay through the nose from Amazon.com, which I did for Gwangi, which cost me at least $35.
The Archive has been wonderful overall, releasing so much great stuff that never had a chance before... but how about a little love for movie fans north of the 49th?

I've actually resorted to buying a lot of Warner and other R1 titles not available on our Amazon from Amazon.co.uk just because the exchange rate and shipping are cheaper. It really is crazy Warners won't sell up here STILL.
