Two Interesting PAL releases

It is releases like these that should get a person excited and get a multi-region player ! Outside of the forced French subtitles...which I have to check out yet, as I have yet to break the shrink wrap on both of them.

A PAL Region 2 release on the "Wildside" imprint...

IT'S NOT JUST YOU, MURRAY! (1964)
THE BIG SHAVE (1967)
ITALIANAMERICAN (1974)
AMERICAN BOY: A PROFILE OF: STEVEN PRINCE (1978)

DVD FEATURES (Applies to all films)

Fullframe Version
English audio

In addition I picked up this, which an aquaintance recommended...release via Studio Canal, from France, and a Region 2 PAL release !

FWIW, if you use a PC to playback your DVDs you can easily disable 'forced' subtitles.

If you have an eclectic retail outlet near you, probably there, but also xploited cinema.com and the usual online sellers should have this.
