Some excellent DVD news from France. Great company for the odd rare title, Elephant Films.

Great news.

It makes me want to talk about available elements, though. We had been led to believe the only available tape transfers of Baretta had been consumed in the Universal fire. Is this release from the 35mm masters? Or are there some tape transfers of Baretta (and perhaps some other Universal series) becoming available from another source?

I was thinking the same thing. It might be possible that a source overseas has found a set of usable master tapes. If so, could it be the entire run of the series? Let's hope that they are complete uncut original broadcast tapes and not hacked up syndicated versions.

Great news but I'll take a wait and see attitude. I already have a set of cut episodes for season 2 so I don't really need another one.

I'd be more inclined to think another set of pre-existing tapes finally turned up after nine years. If there's a R1 release, I will get it. This and "Joey Bishop Show" hold the record for the longest stalled title on DVD.

You could order it on Amazon.fr just like Amazon in the US. The currency will be converted. However, after looking at reviews it appears there is no English soundtrack, It appears to only be in French. Bummer.

Thanks. For now at least I guess I will have to be content with the episodes I have that we taped off TV. Hopefully the french release means that useable prints of the episodes exist. Perhaps we will see more US DVDs released.

It'd be amazing if the only tape transfers were dubbed ones without the original English!

The last time I saw "Baretta" in syndication was on the Canadian "SUN TV" channel about 15 years go. If you see the bootleg copies online they will have the Sun TV logo in the bottom right.

I always thought the reason that the rest of Baretta was held up was because of Robert Blake's legal problems. Would love to see the rest of this series eventually get released.

I think the legal troubles prevented further releases while the tape transfers used for Season 1 were still available and then the fire took care of all of those.
