Some of the items on my wish list: Fritz Lang Box Set, Beggars of Life, and John Bunny - Film's First King of Comedy. I've been good this year. I promise.

In the Christmas Miracle category, I'd line to see a Blu-Ray boxset of Lillian Gish's MGM silent films. Realistically, I'd be very happy with Jeff Codori's biography of Colleen Moore.

The EARLY WOMEN FILMMAKERS set, the JEAN PIERRE MELVILLE set from the UK and the recent Lon Chaney double feature from Ben Model.

I’ll be leaving out cookies and milk near the chimney, if that’s an incentive.

Would love for somebody to release Greed on blu-ray.

And the winners are...

OMG, we've broken Jim Roots' record of non-winning at long last! There must be something wrong with the Random Number Generator... he wins The Lost World.

And Cinefan wins the Women Filmmakers Set.

I will contact both. Congrats to both winners and to all participants, big thanks to our friends at Flicker Alley for sponsoring the contest, and may Santa bring you all what you wish for.

I've been away for four days and came back to make a discovery: sucking up to your betters actually works!

Seriously, it's hard to believe I actually won anything. This is a guy who buys three lottery tickets every Friday and doesn't even get a "free ticket" reward out of them for decades. In the Lotto 6/49, where you have to pick six numbers, the six I always pick have never turned up together in the 35+ years history of the draw. (I keep picking these numbers because they're surely overdue, aren't they?)

Anyway, I'm extremely happy to win something meaningful for once! I last saw The Lost World at the Cinesation in Saginaw in 1998, with Sam Rubin sitting in the same row visibly excited. Watching it at home will certainly bring back a happy memory or two.

Thanks to Flicker Alley, Mike, and anybody else!

Congrats winners!!

Since it's the season of giving, let's keep the wish list going, shall we?

In addition to the return of the fashion faux pas of tucking our sweaters in, I wish that Criterion keeps their Lloyd and Chaplin series going... and adds additional silent geniuses to their list, like, say... Arbuckle?

If you could wish for 1 movie or boxed set for Christmas, and get it, what would it be?

My choice this year: a boxed set of all lost George Larkin serials:
Trey O' Hearts (1914)
Grant, Police Reporter (1916-1917)
Zongar (1918)
The Adventures of Ruth (1919)
They call me "Dangerous Dal"

I merged this with a thread that is on the same subject.

Congrats to the winners!!

After all these years, I'm still wishing for a blu-ray box set of upgraded restorations of the Thames Silents series that Brownlow, Gill, and Davis did a quarter century ago. I'm grateful for The Big Parade, of course, but whoo, how nice it'd be to have The Crowd, A Woman of Affairs, Show People, The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg, The Wind, &c with those wonderful Davis scores.

But considering the bounty of releases we've seen in the past year alone, I'm not about to complain!

My Christmas wish is very special. I hope that one day all lost films suddenly re-appear. There are lots of silents and early talkies I would like to get acquainted with. Among the latter are "quota quickies" made by WB's Teddington Studios in Great Britain in the 1930's. Think if all lost Norwegian, Danish and Swedish silents of the 1910's were available for film enthusiasts in 2018. Naturally it is an impossible dream. Chistmas is the season when our deepest wishes are allowed to be put forward, although my heart knows that they'll remain unfulfilled.
