This came up on my Microsoft/Bing Rewards page today:

Viva Cantinflas​

He'd be turning 110 years old today. Check out the comedian's work!

If only we could get this released on Blu Ray.

'Entertainment for the whole family without violence or a dirty word.'
What dirty words were they using on screen in 1960?

I don't desire to damn the entire nation of Spain in terms of home media, but they do little to reign in illegal activities.

My stance is simple.

If a product is from Spain, I presume it to be a bootleg.

If that product is a "Blu-ray," I presume that it's a DVD level master in a Blu-ray bucket.

If a proper copyright notice isn't attached, that's a pretty good yardstick of propriety.

I’m in Madrid now and the vast range of classics on Blu-ray which don’t appear to be legitimate (practically all of them) is incredible. Many Warner Bros titles are there which have been released on Warner Archive and none of them have a WB logo. Some titles have studio logos, such as Universal for Freud but a comment on Amazon says the quality is more like DVD or even VHS. Why this situation has developed in Spain - to the extent that it seems studios don’t bother releasing discs themselves - is a mystery.
