Which Classic 20th Century Fox Film Should Be on Blu-Ray?

posted by Nell Minow

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced today a one-of-a-kind campaign, VOICE YOUR CHOICE, allowing film enthusiasts to decide which classic films they would like to see digitally restored and transferred to Blu-ray for the very first time. The program celebrates Fox’s most notable films from the 1930’s thru the 1960’s featuring performances by famous actors such as Henry Fonda, Shirley Temple, Paul Newman, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne and more. Throughout the campaign, fans will also have the opportunity to write in and submit additional titles. Voting begins today at www.hometheaterforum.com and at www.foxconnect.com.

In addition Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will celebrate their extensive collection of classic movies by releasing at least one title on Blu-ray per month under the banner “20th Century Fox Studio Classics.” Drawing from Twentieth Century Fox’s rich catalog all releases will be Academy® award-winning or nominated movies from the 1920’s thru the 1960’s.

The “Vote Your Choice” options include some of my favorites: Shirley Temple’s “The Little Princess” and “The Blue Bird,” the charming romance “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir,” the dashing “Captain from Castile,” the witty “A Letter to Three Wives,” the rollicking story of “motion study” pioneers Frank and Lilian Gilbreath and their twelve children, “Cheaper by the Dozen,” the wild satire with Jayne Mansfield and Tony Randall, “Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?”, the delightful caper film, “How to Steal a Million,” and the Tracy/Hepburn classic, “Desk Set.”  Here are the candidates — cast your vote!

The Little Princess Steamboat Round the Bend
Swanee River
