    I noticed that the Alec Guinness Collection does not have English subtitles. I find this feature very important for a number of reasons. This is very unfortunate as I was really looking forward to this release.

    Please, Anchor Bay, start support this. You are one of few that do not have it and it would raise the level of you releases considerable.

    The Alec Guinness set does have closed captioning. I happened to watch the first 10 minutes of THE LAVENDER HILL MOB while snacking on chips and the CC helped tremendously. [​IMG]

    It does have CC but no English subtitles, which I miss a lot. Many display devices also do not have CC.
