I understand that the Broston epics "55 Days at Peking", "El Cid" and "Fall of the Roman Empire" are available in France in widescreen. Anyone know if the English language track is the original soundtrack (with Heston et al) and if the credits are in the original english. I'm seriously considering purchasing these. I know Miramax are supposed to be working on new DVD versions of all these movies. They may eventually be better than the above R2 discs but Miramax have been at it for two years and could go on another two years for all I know. Meanwhile I want to see these movies in something approximating their original glory now. Maybe I'll upgrade later if the Miramax discs ever appear.
