Twentieth Century Fox has partnered with the Home Theater Forum to let film enthusiasts choose which titles will undergo HD restorations and presumably Blu-ray releases from its deep catalog.

Choices include:

1930s — Jesse James, Call of the Wild, The Little Princess, Steamboat Round the Bend and Swanee River

1940s — The Return of Frank James, Pin Up Girl, That Night in Rio, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Black Swan, Kiss of Death, My Gal Sal, Captain From Castile, To the Shores of Tripoli, The Blue Bird, My Friend Flicka, A Letter to Three Wives, Crash Drive, Mother Wore Tights and Hello Frisco, Hello

1950s — Don’t Bother to Knock, Cheaper by the Dozen, Carmen Jones, On the Riviera, Anastasia, Black Widow, Broken Lance, The True Story of Jesse James, The Tall Men, Desk Set, The Best of Everything, The River’s Edge, The Bravados, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?

1960s — From the Terrace, Morituri, Two for the Road, North to Alaska, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Let’s Make Love, Do Not Disturb, The Agony and the Ecstasy, Back Door to Hell, How to Steal a Million, The Undefeated, The 300 Spartans, Can-Can, the 1968 Bedazzled and Bandolero!

You can vote in each category once per day, and in complete self-interest I encourage everyone reading this to mash Bedazzled on a daily basis from now until the close of voting. Fox already plans to release at least one title per month as part of its Studio Classics line, which will include Cleopatra (already available in Europe), and likely Fantastic Voyage later this year. If you don’t like your choices, there’s a box at the bottom where you can write in your favorite for consideration.
