Look at your other thread

finagled,
I see you're new to the forum, but why don't you look at your previous post?

...the short answer: there are no such animals...

Region 1 DVDs are intended for North America - so the best that you would find is movies with a French (dubbed) soundtrack (for Québec, the French-speaking province of Canada), and/or with French/Spanish subtitles, sometimes also Korean and/or Thai subtitles.

There are -very rare- exceptions: for instance, the DVD of John Ford's 1937[!] The Hurricane features (mono) soundtracks in various languages, including German.

Of course there are (actually relatively few) movies on Region 1 DVD that are German-language originally: Das Boot, M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder (Criterion), Lola Rennt, Der Blechtrommel - these have (optional or burnt-in) English subtitles.

If you must have German language DVDs, Region 2 (Europe) is your best bet (but, of course, you need not only a multi-region player to watch them, but also one that converts the incompatible-with-NTSC PAL-encoded image on those discs to your incompatible-with-PAL NTSC display...)

Nothing's easy...

Na, wenn du sowas schreibst, dann kannst du sicherlich auch deutsch :-) Also, meine Empfehlung: Kauf dir eine codefree DVD Player und dann kannst Du deutsche DVDs aus Deutschland importieren :-) !
