    I am really hoping the clock means Chimes at Midnight.

    Could Outcast of the Islands be the last one?

    Any possibility of the larger clue being Kramer's On the Beach (1959)? Also, does anyone else think that there seem to be less clues in this one than in previous years?

    The one clue is clearly Requiem for a Heavyweight (hopefully the t.v. production)....

      Requiem for a Heavyweight is on the Golden Age of Television set. It's spine # 495 and had the original Marty, Patterns, No Time for Sergeants, Bang the Drum Slowly, The Comedian, Days of Wine and Roses, and Requiem for a Heavyweight. There's no Blu Ray for it, but that probably wouldn't make too big a difference because they are Kinescopes. But it's a fantastic set.

    I'm still hoping for A Face in the Crowd.

    2016 looks like it's going to be a great year as we're (probably) getting Three Kings (1999), McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971- yes, WB does license titles out), Fantastic Planet (1973- Criterion's 3rd animated feature!), Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls (1970), Dr. Strangelove (1964), Only Angels Have Wings (1939), The New World (2005), Phoenix (2015), Easy Rider (1969- upgrade), Oliver Twist (1948- upgrade), Chimes At Midnight (1965), A Taste Of Honey (1961), The Story Of The Last Chrysanthemums (1939), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), The Squid And The Whale (2005), and The Naked Island (1960) as standalone releases to go along with box sets featuring Wim Wender's Road Trilogy, Lone Wolf And Cub and Robert Drew's Kennedy documentaries! Plus, Criterion has already welcomed The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and Bicycle Thieves (1948-upgrade) so the drawing's off to a good start in keeping its promises!

    If Kings Of The Road, and Exterminating Angel are getting released, I'll be extremely happy.

    Is the 70's film Silent Running possible with Bruce Dern? There seems to be an overarching theme with the plants and Saturn and time and his ship was called the Valley Forge. Just a guess.

    I'm praying that people are right and it's the Wender's Road trilogy, especially since when the retrospective played in New York they never played Wrong Move! Squid and the Whale seems likely and I'm pretty confident about Chrysanthemum seeing as how Janus just restored it, saw it at Lincoln Center and would love to own it! Then Easy Rider, Phoenix, Dr. Strangelove, Chimes at Midnight and Taste of Honey seem like safe(ish) bets.

      Wrong Move is currently touring. It was not included in the Wenders series here in Cleveland in November but it is showing this Saturday. Check your schedule. They're probably getting it soon.

    I'm kind of getting a "Late Chrysanthemums" vibe, since they're right next to a clock.

    I have to say, if McCabe and Mrs. Miller is coming to Criterion, I am really, really pumped for that.

    When are they going to let Jason Polan do a Criterion cover?

    I'm excited for Three Kings and an Easy Rider update. I've been meaning to give Malick's The New World a watch as well...

    I hate being always right. I told you Christian Petzold's Phoenix was coming to Criterion.
