    In response to Nick I.'s comment above, there is a list over on my profile, that attempts to reconcile the hit ratio for guesses versus New Year's cartoons. This list is maintained real time with a little help from my friends including but not limited to Eric Levy and his attention to detail. Eric also has a nice list which performs the same exercise with Newsletter hints. Happy New Year!

      Glad you were able to enjoy the "New Year's Day" list. Visit the page and drop me a line in the comments if any revisions or amendments come to mind. Happy New Year and I'll add my voice to yours in hoping to see The Grand Budapest Hotel join the Collection one sweet day!

    Room with a View has already been done. I doubt Universal will give up one of their biggest sellers, so I'm thinking maybe Room at the Top. It was on Hulu last year and it remains one of the few Best Actress Oscar winning films unavailable for years. It would be a great film to revisit. And while I'm thinking Simone Signoret, where are Madame Rosa, I Sent a Letter to My Love and The Sleeping Car Murders?

    Wish those clock refers to LEWAT DJAM MALAM, an Indonesian classic that has been restored by WCF. Although in english the title has been translated to AFTER THE CURFEW. #2017wish

    Michael P: How did you get 'Klute' from the drawing? It's one of my most-wanted films on Blu, so it would be totally great if Criterion are going to release it!

      Greg, Todd - No, "Mysterious Object at Noon" is just TOO groaning a Criterion pun. I give them that one.

    Could the window be Murnau's Sunrise? I don't think anyone has mentioned that one yet.

    Does anyone else notice the one little stem coming off of the clock, maybe a sign of A Clockwork Orange? And if the candles do single out Sixteen Candles, I would like to see some John Hughes in the collection, some blu rays of his work have really low quality transfers.

    I wonder if those letters mean Goodbye to Language as a criterion release... Would be odd, since there already is a blue ray -- but then they surprised me with Certified Copy... Greg

    Yes, Jeanne Dielman on Blu-ray! I also see Sixteen Candles, and Ghost World. Anyone know what the musical notes are?

      they seem to be around the Cuban flags, so probably "Buena Vista Social Club" - considering how much Wenders Criterion has, that makes sense. I was hoping the flags mean "Soy Cuba," but "Buena Vista" is cool

      Jesse E., where do you see Grand Budapest Hotel? I'm most excited for that release, but don't see it in the picture. Or has it already been confirmed somewhere?

    Isn't the clock simply BEFORE MIDNIGHT?

    "Sixteen Candles" - surprised by this..."Something Wild" is one thing, but this one seems too light/commercial "Ghost World" - cool "They Live By Night" - another Ray, that's cool "Soy Cuba" - i'm hoping two Cuban flags means that, would be amazing "Jeanne Dielman" on Blu-Ray, that's cool don't know about the rest...

    Given the titles that recently turned up on FilmStruck, could the nice sunny horizon outside the window be a Clear Day, on which you can See Forever?

    SRT is a racing term -- so Aloha Bobby Jones?

    The cube with the question mark has to be Super Mario Bros. Right?

    Cuban flags with song notes: BUENAVENTURA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB. Alexander The Great with Fanny pack, FANNY & ALEXANDER blu-ray. SIXTEEN CANDLES is a very odd choice, but so was THE BIG CHILL.

    Could it be Sunset Blvd. The sun appears to be setting and there is a road next to it.

      No hyperbole...If Criterion announced a release of Sunset Blvd. it would be in the top 3 days of my life!
