    I rented this on Thursday and noticed that the subtitles turned off and on in one scene in the movie. It's the same problem as the Monty Python SE disk, only in reverse. It's the scene where Satine and Christian are singing on top of the elephant. Right after he says the line (can't remember exact lines, but if you watch the scene you'll know), "Love is like oxygen" the subtitles turn off and resumes when Satine says, "A girl has to eat".

    So I went back to the main menu and turned on the Behind the Red Curtain feature (green fairy flashes on screen) and at that exact same scene where the subtitles dropped out, the fairy pops up. Has anyone experienced this problem on their player??

    I have a Sony DVP-560D.

    Thanks.

    Here's the time stamp : Chap. 14 0:00:12

    The subtitles disappear right after Christian says, "Love is like oxygen." and resume when Satine says, "A girl has got to eat."

    My player is a Sony DVP-360D.

    For anyone who's still following this thread, I went ahead and watched the Behind the Red Curtain feature and wrote down the times at which the green fairy appears. At these times the subtitles disappear and reappear while the green fairy feature is off and the subtitle track turned on.
