    This is a classic French was movie recently made available in Region 2, and I believe it was an anamorphic transfer of the original 2.35-to-1 print. I saw this film as a kid when I lived in Europe for a couple of years and would love to own a Region 1 version of the DVD.
    Anyone know anything? has the region 2 version for sale...
    I'd hate to be reduced to finding a VHS copy of the movie.

    0 does not have it for sale's been OUT OF PRINT for a long time now. I'm a huge fan of the film myself but as it is a typically european film (starring the totally unknown in the U.S. Louis de Funes) I wouldn't hold my breath.
    I saw this as a kid as well and LOVED it. Well, let's hope the french at least re-issue the DVD. The one good thing is that all the soldiers speak in their native tongues (Germans speak German, English speak English and so on) The French version is also much longer than those released in other countries. I know the German version had 30 minutes hacked out of it.
