    I was looking at the Studio Canal Region 2 French editions of the following Fernandel movies: 'Coffret Don Camillo : l'intégrale' which contains all 6 movies in the series and two other editions: Le Petit monde de Don Camillo - Edition Collector and Le Retour de Don Camillo - Edition Collector. The last two have the English sub-titles but the information about the 6-movie collection is confusing. I checked several sites and some claim that there are English sub-titles and others say it's only in French and Italian. Does anyone have the 6-movies set and could clarify the confusion.

    Irina,

    Thanks a lot for pointing this release out to us: I have been waiting a long time to replace my VHS tapes by DVD versions!

    Here is some information I found on another site. It suggests strongly that all have French, English and Spanish subtitles.

    I think I'm on my way to order this box from Amazon.fr!

    BTW, just to be sure you know: "Le Petit monde de Don Camillo" and "Le Retour de Don Camillo" are included in the box.
    Enjoy the movies yourself too!

    Jerôme,

    Ha thanks! I love seeing a film with the original language track, but often need subtitles to catch certain parts of the dialogue.

    Ordered the box!

    Thank you both Jerome and Cees for the time spent researching my question. I will probably also order the set. It's a shame that Fernandel could not play in the 6th movie; he declined the offer due to the failing health.

    I just check these films :

    La Grande bagarre de DC : french track, spanish and english subtitles.

    DC Monseigneur : italian & french track, spanish and english subtitles.

    DC en Russie : italian & french track, spanish and english subtitles.

    And Yes they have the subtitles.



    In fact, he shot it with Gino Cervi under the direction of Christian-Jaque, but the shooting was interrupted and never finished. You can see behind the scenes footage on the special features of the first DVD.

    one year later, another crew and cast shot Don Camillo et les contestataires
