    Two more 20th Century Fox titles are about to be released on Blu-ray disc in France: The Black Rose (Henry Hathaway/Jack Cardiff)

    Black Rose, The.

    and Prince Of Foxes.(Henry King/Leon Shamroy)

    Prince Of Foxes.
    If there is no sub-title issue, I'll buy these. Both films have a first-class director and a superb cinematographer.

    Am I right in fearing that the French Blu ray of 'Le Bossu' with Daniel Auteuil carries only French subtitles?

    According to Amazon.fr that is correct. They're usually pretty good at letting us know if it includes English subtitles though I did have one instance of ordering a title that the site said had English subtitles and when it arrived, the disc had no English subtitles, just the original French soundtrack. I did get a refund.

    TENDER IS THE NIGHT looks fantastic in the new blu ray from France. It has to be a new restoration . Removable French subtitles.

    It's also Zone-free. I had a brief preview yesterday using my Zone A Blu-ray player.

    God, how I love this forum! Thanks, Billy. BTW...Roger Corman's excellent THE INTRUDER with William Shatner has also been released in France on Blu.

    Just watched the simply wonderful La Fin du jour (The End of Day), Region Free, 4K restoration. From Julien Duvivier, released in 1939. Highly recommended.

    I remember having some problems with it when I saw it back in the day, but I'd love to see it again to refresh my memory about its positives and negatives.
