I thought of starting this thread here, in case anyone knows anything.
The Sissi trilogy films, are among my favourite films of my childhood, and they were recently restored (2,5 years ago) and released in some excellent German Blurays (unfortunately without English subtiltes).
The films are presented both in full screen (1.33:1) and widescreen (1.78:1) and have both German DTS-HD MA mono and 5.1.
(I myself prefer the full screen presentation)
The result is outstanding! It's perhaps one of the 5 best restorations I've ever seen in Bluray of an old film.
Does anyone know, if there is any chance of these Blurays being released with subtitles in US perhaps?
I just contacted the Australian Umbrella Entertainment that had released DVDs of the films, in case they plan anything for the future.
Someone else had contacted Studio Canal at the time of the release of the German Blurays, but they said they have no plans.
Also, I can't find any contact info on Koch Lorber that had released the DVDs in USA. (Does this company exist still?)
These films would be a treasure to have, and I'm afraid we won't see them in English-friendly Blurays ever..
