I thought these were all going to released across all regions at the same time. I know the first batch are coming to R1 on July 1st and I think I'm right in thinking The Great Dictator is already available in France but when are they coming to the UK ? I fear the release may be delayed in Britain because the National Film Theatre seem to have a big Chaplin season planned for the summer and autumn which will also tour the country. Will a DVD release coincide with this I wonder or follow it ? Those of us anxious to get hold of the silent version of The Gold Rush may have go down the Region 1 route.
