Movies I Want Released on DVD

Now that you can get They Drive By Night and What A Way To Go!, those are off my list. Here's what's left at the moment.

The ones I've seen:

1. Night on Earth -- my favorite Jim Jarmusch movie, and I like Jim Jarmusch

2. When Night Is Falling -- cuz it's my all-'round favorite lesbian movie (I have a Canadian copy on DVD but want it out there for all)

3. Tampopo -- how can the archetype of the noodle western not be on DVD here yet?

4. Crossing Delancey -- reveals my weakness for romantic comedies that somehow manage not only not to piss me off but to leave me feeling smiley

5. The Gazebo -- not a great film, but one I saw on TV as a kid more than once & think of oddly often

6. Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? -- another childhood TV recollection; a goofball(?) Doris Day vehicle set (groovily, I recall thinking) in the Great Northeast Blackout of 1965

7. The Joy of Living -- Irene Dunne comedy from 1938 I also remember from TV (and wrote a poem about long ago)

8. Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios [Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown] -- felt wildly fresh to me when it came out; will it still? (surely it will, at least in the sense of "fresh" used in "don't get fresh with me!")

9. Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story -- I've got a video copy of the illicit film, and a DVD can be gotten through similarly underground means, but it'd be sweet if it were out there for the world

The ones I've not seen:

1. Johnny Guitar -- a camp (& lezbo subtext) classic

2. La Nuit américaine [Day for Night] -- François Truffaut's movie-within-a-movie movie

3. Howard the Duck -- sounds like no other film (but maybe better if you're getting stoned?)
