    have an elderly gentleman who speaks only Spanish. Which region should I look to in order to fill this need and where should I obtain them?
    Thanks in advance

    Mexico and South America are R4. Many R1 DVDs have Spanish language tracks, though.

    Also make sure you buy any R1 from the US not Canada, as with some titles (such as Harry Potter), the Canadian version had a French rather than Spanish language track, in addition to the standard English.

    Spain, R2, probably has a wider selection of Spanish language movies on DVD than Mexico.

    Yes, but Spain is a PAL territory.

    ...ahh... was going to suggest Argentina... but it turns out it is also a PAL country (as is Brazil, apparently)...

    ...how about Venezuela then ?...

    ...or, better(!?!) yet get a 'region-free' player that converts PAL to NTSC...
    ...that would allow playing Region 2 PAL discs from Spain (for instance)...
