Requests

Hey guys,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to upload.

Remember I can’t just upload any movie, there’s a number of “rules” that need to be followed in order to “green light” a film, the rules are the following:

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray is available to purchase online.
  2. For British films make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD otherwise I cannot upload it.
  3. The movie was released before the year 2004.
  4. For foreign films I will only upload movies that are not available on Region 1 DVDs, if the movie was released on DVD/Bluray but only in country of origin make sure it’s region locked, some studios release them region-free and include English subtitles, in those cases I will not upload them.
  5. Lastly, make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube (or if it is it has to be very low quality), it takes me a lot of time to upload movie film and to see that it’s already up on YT it ends up being a waste of time so please check before requesting it here. Also, check out the WANTED films list, if the movie you want is listed there it means I don’t have it.

1 request every 2 months each person (updated). Actually, you can post 2 requests if you want but the second one will be used only as a backup in case I don’t have the first one. Please respect this, post only once after every 2 months and DON’T post more than 2 films.

In order to keep this section as clean as possible and easy to navigate I will delete the comments after your requests have been uploaded, for those films that I don’t have I will add them to the WANTED list.

 

Thanks.
Jon.

—— NOW OPEN ——

Note: just so you guys know, due to a side project that I’m currently working on all requests made on September will not be posted on the site until early October. Thanks for your patience.

    Thank you for your hard work. Amazing!

    There are several films with the legendary Jean Gabin which still have never been subtitled into English… All of these titles are available on DVD (or VHS) in Europe, but do not have English subtitles:
    “Gloria” (1933)
    “Varietes” (1935)
    “Le Messager” (1938)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “Tonnerre de Dieu” — there are DVD copies circulating, but only in very bad phonetic English (1965)
    “Pour un soir..” (1931)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “La Sang a la Tete” (1952)– very bad phonetic English-subtitled version available online
    “Coeurs joyeux” (1933) — I actually own a very good copy of this on a CD-ROM (but it doesn’t have any English subtitles)
    “La Cas du docteur Laurent” (1956)
    “Drapeau noir flotte sur la marmite” (1971)
    “Paris-Beguin” (1931)
    “Chacun sa Chance” (1930)
    “Verdict” (1974) — Jean Gabin and Sophia Loren.

    Thank you!

    Maybe there are some French-speaking rarefilmm fans who can help to subtitle some of them? (( can dare to dream!)

      For subtitles I find the best site is:

      http://www.opensubtitles.org/ followed by https://subscene.com

      If you can’t find subs in English (or your desired language) or you need to
      resync, adjust or otherwise modify them, I use very good freeware:

      http://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit

      It will do automatic translations using Google which can range from quite good
      to somewhat comical, but mostly you get the idea. To English, I find transations
      from Portuguese, Spanish and Italian to be quite good. From Romanian not bad,
      from French not so good (I think French is much more idiomatic). From Germanic
      and Scandanavian not bad. In any case, you may not get the subtleties of the
      original, but you will understand what’s going on.

      If you are really desparate, there is a Python script which uses speech to text
      libraries to create a subtitle file directly from the film, then uses
      translation libraries (using Google) to translate them. (this part doesn’t work unless you register for a Google API key, so I use subtitleedit to do the translation as they recommend in the instructions below)
      I’ve tried it and the results are reasonable. It drops some of the dialogue but it does handle a good part of it and will give you an idea of what’s going on. Sometimes the results are pretty good and other times not so much. But it is quick (about 5m) and easy, so give it a try. If the results stink you are no worse off.

    Greetings. Back in the late 1970’s I saw this Brazilian Film in a theater in Mill Valley. The plot was that some evil developer was trying to buy all the real estate in this community to redevelop.The community revolted against this plan. I think boulders were rolled down the hill at cars? After they won the people partied; dancing in the streets. Any excuse, these people partied. After seeing this film, our friends and I would say, Let’s Bahia or party. Does anyone know the name of this masterpiece? or where I can find it with English subtitles?

    For some reason I’ve retained the memory of a very positive review of a film called, (I think,) “Barnardo of the Mountains”, released sometime mid 1990’s. All I remember is that it was a partisan war drama so I’m guessing could be from Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, etc.. Haven’t been able to find mention anywhere. Also just to reiterrate a request for “Les noces de papier” (The Paper Wedding) 1989 made for television Canadian film directed by Michel Brault with Genevieve Bujold. Thanks for all the wonderful work. Cheers.

      Hi Gabrielle. Zuckerbaby (1985) is on YT w/ eng subs, but it is cut up into 7 parts. If that’s suitable, here’s part 1 – https://youtu.be/GLunqAVXkSI

    Hello Jon. I may be asking about a movie you are working on, since you have mentioned it in the past—Marie-Louise (1944 or ‘45). I think it is the first foreign-language movie to win an Oscar in any category (original screenplay). No particular hurry, just wondered if it was still on the way. Nick Jason

    Hi Jon,

    I’ve been searching for this Movie for over 30 years:

    https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0239479/

    This Title aired frequently on a UHF station, in the Metro Detroit area, during the early/mid 80s. During a time-frame before my parents bought their first VCR. So unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to tape it on VHS.

    It’s supposedly available on DVD in Japan. But, I’m not sure if that edition was dubbed into an Asian language, or if it has subtitles (of any language).

    I’m looking for the original German Language Print: “Haschen in der Grube” (1969) and/or the Dubbed into English Version released in U. S. theatres under the title: “Run, Rabbit, Run” (circa 1973). Please don’t confuse what I’m looking for with an unrelated American Film entitled: “Rabbit Run” (1970), starring James Caan. I’m NOT searching for the latter.

    A Still from “my” Movie:

    https://www.google.ca/search?q=run+rabbit+run+1969&safe=active&client=safari&hl=en-ca&prmd=visn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiUttb3tfLgAhWFy4MKHYfpAKgQ_AUoAnoECA0QAg&biw=375&bih=549#imgrc=kExGhXG29_lRhM

    Proshchaniye s Peterburgom(Farewell to St Petersburg) 1972 by Yan Frid. A Soviet film about Johan Strauss made the same year as the US version of Strauss The Great Waltz.
    Le pays sans étoiles 1946 by George Lacombe. This is an early film with Gérard Philipe but surprisingly no subtitles available as far as I know

      Rick – If you ever get to London, you can make an appointment at the British Film Institute and for a reasonable fee, you can sit down at a Moviola and they’ll run a 16mm print of THE DOLLAR BOTTOM for you. That’s how I saw it last fall, along with a VHS copy of the incredibly rare nominee, THREE RUSSIAN GIRLS.

    This is an excellent production of the original version of the Clair Booth Luce play.
    There was a DVD offered by PBS in the early 2000’s but that is long OOP. This was also on YT, cut up into 10 parts with terrible video and even worse, unsynchronized audio, but even that is gone.
    Thank you for all the work you do.

    and as a backup, the Hungarian short film Bizonyos jóslatok (1967) (aka Certain Prophecies) which was directed by József Nepp and Ottó Foky and actually appeared on Chuck Jones’ lost Curiosity Shop TV show…

    Hi Jon,

    Terrific site!

    Looking for Morgen in Alabama, aka Man Under Suspicion (1984) by Norbert Kückelmann, starring Maximilian Schell. From West Germany. I have several resources at my disposal, including karagara and a guy in Europe with a catalogue of 85000 titles for sale, and none have this listed!!! It isn’t on any torrent site either!

    If you can find it I’ll be incredibly gratified.

    My #2 title – a backup – is Claude Boissol’s super rare 1960 technicolor farce 3 Etcs and the Colonel, aka Trois etc. du colonel, aka Tre eccetera del colonnello.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    The closest I’ve ever come is a 35mm print of this that was circulating on Ebay a couple years ago for about $200. I didn’t spend the money but I wish I had.

    Uma(Horse) 1941 by Yamamoto. This film was co-directed by Kurosawa and for some film experts should be considered as his first film as Kurosawa directed most of the scenes.
    La danse de mort 1948 by Marcel Cravenne. This is a French film version of Dance of Death(Strindberg) with Erich von Stroheim in the title role

    Wonderful to see you back — it’s amazing how many requests you got in such a short time!

    I’d love to find the first film made by Ed Hunt, who made the absolutely incredibly weird Flying Saucer movie Starship Invasions. It’s called Point of No Return and it’s from 1976. Here’s the IMDB link:

    As a backup, how about the wacky Hong Kong feature, Snake Curse (She Zhou) from 2004. There’s a version dubbed in Hindi with no subs on Youtube, but it’s so insane that one hopes for a better version.

    Incidentally, any idea where I could find the subs for the Czech time travel film Neco je ve vzduchu? it’s up on youtube, but so far no subs anywhere! And Czech is a language which is notoriously hard to autotranslate…

    Thanks for all the great films! I’ve caught quite a few of your uploads on Ok.ru, and plan to watch yet more! Keep up the great work, and I’m glad to hear that things are going well enough that you can resume the requests! Thanks!

    I’m not sure why Atom Egoyan’s CITADEL has had such limited circulation – I’ve heard that he’s worried that the opinions expressed within it about Lebanese politics would be too controversial to give the film a wide release – but I’ve waited since it was completed for a chance to see it. I still haven’t had one.

    Don’t know the title about this one, maybe you can help: I am looking for a movie about a couple on the run after having committed a crime. One scene takes place on a deserted beach. The guy gets shot (by mob hitmen?) standing by the sea, while his long-haired brunette girlfriend watches from afar, sitting in the dunes. The bullets make an eerie sound on the quiet beach. The guy falls down and the waves wash over his body. I think it is a French movie, maybe Spanish, definitely European. Probably 1990s. Thanks in advance.

    Would love to see A CLASH OF LOYALTIES (1983) starring Oliver Reed. It’s a historical epic made in Iraq almost a decade before the first Gulf War, and I believe Saddam Hussein had some involvement in the financing!!! There are copies on YouTube, but there on no subtitles on the foreign parts, so it’s only possible to comprehend the English language sections, if, like me, you only speak English. A subtitled or dubbed version would be marvellous if one exists at all (I believe there must be one somewhere, as it was shown many years ago – in ’84 I believe – at some film festival).

    Also, I would like to see THE CONDEMNED OF ALTONA (1962) starring Sophia Loren, Fredric March and Maximilian Schell. Seems to have vanished off the face of the planet for some reason.
