Then you'd better not look at what else we lost.

This *is* frustrating. Not sure why but somehow with the "new" technology of DVD I assumed somehow the media would naturally lead to archival keeping of titles for ever. Maybe cause my local video stores keep everything for ever or maybe because I never had places like GC or NetFlix before with all inclusive titles I never noticed that video titles were "out of print".

That's why it still makes sense to buy copies of titles you know you'll want to see in five years. Only the most popular titles, i.e. the least common denominator, will have long catalog life. There are many movies that never made (or are only now making) the leap from VHS and LD to DVD. Better hope you store them carefully, because it's supposedly illegal for you to make copies, even if you're facing bit rot.

(BTW, I'm not putting every missing title I find on this list, only ones that were available when put in my queue. So you should assume even more rapid catalog turnover)

Vittorio De Sica's Shoeshine, nominated for an Academy Award in 1948.
This one has in my queue for over a year, so I'm especially disappointed.

What we were renting was a Canadian import (which was itself admittedly bare bones, as Brockton's review states, though was still better than nothing). When it makes it to a legit release here, you can bet we'll get a bunch.

Well, it wasn't available last year at "RedCine," but it is now. Might want to check your suppliers.

No, alas, it's still not available - not in a legitimate, American Region 1 release anyway. The version we used to have was a Canadian import that was truly atrocious, abysmal, a travesty, etc. There's also a Region 0 release that is apparently just as bad. We're still holding out for a "real" release.

If you hear anything different, though, feel free to forward the info on to us!

I'm sure if we check Underdog's doghouse, we'll uncover the mystery.

(Remember that Brady Bunch episode where Tiger took all of the kids' stuff and hid it in his dawghaus.)
