    I just found out that there's a November release of a Mankiewicz pack in France with FIVE FINGERS (which is available in the UK already), A LETTER TO THREE WIVES and DRAGONWYCK. Sadly my french is not good enough to find out more. Does anyone has any more information?

    I believe the publisher is Carlotta and that they usually have non-removable subtitles.

    Thanks.

    Don't know about removable subtitles but it will contain docs about:
    - Gene Tierney
    - the making of Five Fingers
    - Biogrpahy of Mankiewicz
    - Interviews with Mankiewicz himself
    - Critical discussion about Mankiewicz (with French critics)

    There aren't any review yet on the web. But the editor is one of the best. It's like a french Criterion. I owned two westerns made by them (Man of The West/Forty Guns) and the quality is perfect. The french subtitles are removable.

    I have had the opportunity to review these for a french site: do not hesitate to buy the set, you will not be disappointed by the picture quality.

    Thanks. I'm going to get it as a christmas present. DRAGONWYCK and A LETTER TO THREE WIVES were quite high on my to wish list, so it's perfect. Just out of curiosity, are all the extras in french?

    Yes. I just finish watching A LETTER TO THREE WIVES and you can take them out. Most extras are in french without subtitles, but the interview and the trailers are in english with removable french subtitles.
