    It’s public domain, why hard coded foreign subtitles?. It’s fun old pre-WW2 movie, kind of trashed for English viewers and other languages. Could have used separate SRT subs for any other language..

      Victor, I didn’t burn in the subtitles I found it like this with Spanish subtitles already hardcoded into the video, once they are hardcoded they can’t be removed, the only solution would be to crop it but I don’t do that, if you have a clean copy feel free to post a link for it and I’ll change it.

    This version is all over the internet, so far not one clean original anywhere. Some online sites list this movie for sale on DVD but I wonder about source and quality, if they are just reselling this apparent public domain copy. Ones I have emailed to ask have never replied.
