I mean, I already know that MGM doesn’t have 99% of their pre-1986 catalog (there’s odd exceptions like “Flipper”). Any home Blu Ray release from MGM is distributed by Fox. Also Fox doesn’t own any MGM/UA films, they just act as a distributor for home video releases/licensing.

I'm fairly sure that Spider's Web is a similar situation to Dragon Tattoo - a Sony film that MGM was allowed to co-finance. It's not an MGM-owned film that Sony just distributed.

In order to get distribution rights for Skyfall, Sony had to give MGM a piece of Dragon Tattoo (which was nearly done filming at that point) and other titles on their slate:

https://deadline.com/2011/05/mgm-and...tattoo-133105/

As a quasi "sequel", I think Spider's Web is part of the same agreement.

So, I'll ask again. Which MGM films were released by Fox? Is there a list somewhere that I can reference?

Any title you see on a product page that says “Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer” is actually a Fox release.

Fox began distributing MGM's home video releases in 2006 or 2007, I can't remember exactly when.

May 31, 2006:

MGM and Sony had a falling out and MGM pulled their DVD titles and moved to Fox:

Sony was later reported to have lost at least $50 million in revenue a year as a result of losing the MGM domestic DVD distribution deal:

I’be been gradually filling out my ”Fox Studio Classics” section over the last few years but still have several more non-favorite titles left to go. Have tried to pick up all the Twilight Time releases that originally had corresponding FSC DVD releases as well but missed out on a few before they sold out.

I’m not sure what’s more disheartening, trying to grab all of these before go OOP or seeing the Best Buy $5 bin filled with copies of “How Green Was My Valley” - a film that absolutely everyone should see at some point in their life, mixed in with copies of Terminator 3.

In terms of the Blu Ray line I'm up to 20 with my Studio Classics but overall (without the official branding on Blu/other label releases) I'm at 31.

Well, it’s interesting that some titles that were, and are, considered part of the Studio Classics line weren’t labeled as such upon their blu-ray release. Still, I consider films like “Grapes of Wrath” and “An Affair To Remember” to be indisputable.

Here’s my little devoted section, have not counted the exact number:

I also put some of the DVD labeled ones (such as Grapes and Affair) with the Blu line. I've quite enjoyed the line and discovering some of these films. It's probably the closest I've come to being a line/label completionist (for the Blu line that is).

When is someone else finally going to license Leave Her to Heaven? I missed the boat on the Twilight Time disc, and unlike others I missed (like The Driver) there are no foreign options for this film, even Region B locked. There is a Spanish release, but it might be a bootleg (as many releases from Spain tend to be for some reason). It was recently inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry too. Kino says they’re interested “if and when” they do another deal with Fox, but I have a feeling it may not happen for a while. Definitely one of my top titles currently unavailable on Blu-ray.

The fact you can pick up these classic films for little more than the price of a fancy coffee drink is probably the reason that Fox didn'tt releasing more catalog titles itself. Get these bargains while you can.

I'm just assuming they're emptying out their stock after the Disney takeover, and more than likely most things are not ever going to get a new release from them and if so it will be for much more than the price I got these for in the Best Buy dump bin.

I don't know. Some of those titles, such as Wall Street and Raising Arizona, have been around that price point for years. I know I picked up a lot of Fox titles for similar prices during half-price sales at the old FoxConnect site. I don't think that this is a temporary inventory dump and I fear that Fox catalog will not be available from Disney at any price in the future. My hope is that Disney at least licenses those titles to Criterion, Kino and others, even if they end up costing more than a cup of coffee.
