Requests (now open!)

Hey y’all,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to add on the site.

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

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray of the said film is currently in-print and available to purchase online, good places to check availability of films on DVD and Blu are eBay, Amazon and TCMShop (mostly for American films).
  2. For British films make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD if it is available and still in-print on DVD/Blu in the UK I will not upload it.
  3. The movie was released before the year 2007 (up to 2006 is good).
  4. For non-English movies I will only upload those that are not available or out of print on Region 1 DVD, if it is available but on a non-Region 1 release make sure the label who released it it’s not listed among the blacklisted companies/distributors mentioned in Rule 6. 
  5. Make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube (or if it is there it has to be a low quality copy or no subs in case of a foreign film), it takes me a lot of time to look for and upload each film and to end up seeing 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’re looking for is listed there it means I don’t have it.
  6. NEW Last rule and probably most important one: I will NOT be uploading (and don’t insist) films where any of the studios mentioned up next have been involved in either the production or distribution of the requested film: NBCUniversal and all its subsidiaries, WarnerMedia (including everything from the pre-May 1986 MGM library), TNTHBOTurner Entertainment Networks, RKO Radio Pictures, Monogram Pictures, Cannon Group, Milestone Films, Castle Rock Entertainment, Orion Pictures, Lorimar, Gaumont, Pathé & StudioCanal (including Canal+, StudioCanal UK and Arthaus). To check this information you can go for example to IMDb, search for “Company Credits”, click on it and it will show you the production and distribution companies involved in the film.

1 request per user please, you may include a second film as an alternative if you think I might not have the first one.

Thanks for understanding.
Jon.

    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.

    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.

    Nice to see you back! My request, and this might be an odd choice, but the 1993 Super Mario Bros movie has to be it. It is literally not available on any streaming service. It’s not available to rent on YouTube, there is no Region A Blu-Ray (there is a Region B, but it’s unplayable in USA), and the film is not owned by any of your listed studios. It was produced by Hollywood Pictures & Lightmotive.

    Caravan aka Caravane (1934) by Erik Charell.
    This is the version with Charles Boyer and Annabella, not to be confused with the film of the same name and year with Charles Boyer and Loretta Young.
    My alternate is the Marcel Pagnol film, Jofroi also made in 1934.
    I think the problem with both of these may be about finding find English subtitles.

    It has come to my attention that a rip of the 1985 documentary Yama – Attack to Attack has shown up in some circles online. It’s about labour protestors in Japanese cities and it resulted in both of the film’s directors being murdered for their art.

    I would like to humbly request this film, as it sounds like an important and underseen work that should probably be made more available. I imagine that’s what the filmmakers would have wanted.

    Hello I never made any requests here before but I’m looking for various Colombian films. I’m from there and can speak spanish so I don’t need any subtitles in fact it be better without any cause it can get distracting. Anyway I have found many on youtube but there’s still many I can’t find or are on there in extremely bad quality or dubbed in english.

    The following films are the ones I’m looking for mind you all the titles are in spanish if you need an wiki or imdb page I’ll try and help you out with links to any but anyway here goes: Canaguaro 1981 (on youtube but horrible quality), La agonia del difunto 1981, El dia de las Mercedes 1985, Mariposas S.A. 1986, Milagro en Roma 1989, Con su musica a otra Parte 1983, Funeral siniestro 1977, Area maldita 1979, 27 horas con la muerte 1981, Triángulo de oro aka La isla fantasma 1984, Extraña regresión 1985 (this one is on youtube but dubbed in english), La boda del acordeonista 1986 (sometimes label as 1)coming out im 1985 or 1988), Técnicas de Duelo 1988 (on youtube but terrible quality), Pasado el meridiano 1967, Bolivar so Yo 2002 (on youtube bad quality), El embajador de la India 1986, Golpe de estadio 1998, Te Busco 2002, Todo está oscuro 1997, De amores y delitos: Amores ilícitos 1995, Ayer me echaron del pueblo 1982, El taxista millonario 1979, Un hombre y una mujer con suerte 1988, Caín 1984, Colombia Connection 1979, Pisingaña 1986 (on youtube horrible quality), and Los niños invisibles 2001.

    Sorry I asked for so many I just thought I’d take the advantage to ask as many as possible since the first time I found this site it was taken down 3 weeks later. Hopefully you can eventually find all of them. Oh by the way some of these are on youtube but not blocked in my counrty and I used a vpn and went through 40 countries but no luck with any of them but if they are in yours please let me know to see if my vpn will work if I set it to you country.

    Last but not least I want to thank you for this site and for all the uploads you do. Right now I do not have any financial way to show my appreciation and I don’t when I will have any but if I ever do I will donate as much possible to make sure this site stay up. Thank you for everything and have a nice day.

All I can find is a very poor quality, foreign subtitled pan and scan VHS dub. I’d love to be able to see a nice print of this. Thank you!

    Is it cheating to request from categories instead of individual films?

    * Anything nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film that you don’t already have.
    * Anything nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film or Best Live Action Short Film that you don’t already have.
    * Any winners of the Palme d’Or or Short Film Palme d’Or that you don’t already have.

    Just found your amazing site. I would love to see The Reward (1965) with the late, peerless Max von Sydow. Production Co: Arcola Pictures, Distributed by twentieth Century Fox, release date: 15 September, 1965. Have looked extensively online, the only dvd offered is 66 minutes (the original film runs 92 minutes). English subtitles would be wonderful, as a large part of the dialogue is in Spanish, but apparently the context still allows the story to unfold for those who don’t understand Spanish.

    Hi, I would love if you could add “Bawdy Tales” (AKA “Storie Scellarate”), a 1973 film directed by Sergio Citti and overseen and written by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Alberto Grimaldi produced. It is not on video ANYWHERE, much less Region 1. I have asked a number of U.S. boutique labels about releasing it, and their answer is always, ‘We aren’t interested’. I would love to get it on the site here. Also, as a backup, I’d also like to get Sergio Citti’s “Casotto” (Beach House), with Jodie Foster, from 1976, on here. Thank you for your time.

    The film documentary ‘Negative Space’ by Chris Petit seems to have vanished from the face of the earth, and since it deals with film criticism, it’d be good to see.

    And also, the work of Axel Corti is decidedly underseen, other than The King’s Whore. There is only one subtitled film of his on YouTube, (though it is a good one) Young Freud:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwK-U636Roo

    Almost anything else he did would be good to see, the filmography on Wikipedia is full of fascinating looking films: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axel_Corti

    Hi Jon,
    I’ve been trying to track down a 1998 mockumentary called The Thin Pink Line for some time. It’s a gay parody of The Thin Blue Line, and it features an incredible cast of comedic talent, including some of Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer’s earliest film appearances. As far as I can tell based on my own attempts to find it, its only home media release was a DVD in Japan some time in the mid-noughties. Otherwise, I can find no trace of it. If you were able to track it down, I think it could be a wonderful addition to the story of nineties alternative comedy.

    Great to see this site again, welcome back! I’m after a copy of

    Strike Me Lucky (1934).

    There have been no commercial releases of the film that I am aware of. However, I know prints were transferred to VHS back in the late 80s/early 90s for film aficionados (that’s the only time I’ve seen it). Given the calibre of people on this site, there’s a good chance one of them has a copy… thank you.

    Thanks very much for this site. Some wonderful Japanese films I had not seen before.
    Looking for Tomu Uchida’s MORI TO MIZUUMI NO MATSURI 森と湖のまつり (The Outsiders / Festival of Lakes and Forests) (1958). I know there was at one time an R2 version Japanese with no subtitles.

    As a backup Koreyoshi Kurahara’s THE WOMAN FROM THE SEA (海底から来た女 Kaitei kara kita onna, 1959). I was living in Japan at the time and caught the 2008 Tokyo Filmex retrospective which showed 12 of Kurahara’s films. Some of those shown were later released in R1 with subtitles in a set titled The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara. Unfortunately, THE WOMAN FROM THE SEA was not one of them – it especially would have fit better given the title of that set. It is about a young man who becomes infatuated with a beautiful young woman who can transform herself into a shark, in which guise she terrorizes the fishing village where the young man is vacationing. Some great underwater filming

    All of my requests so far seem to be out of circulation, so here is one more:

    “The Chaperone” (1974) directed by Jourdan Alexander

    From the website allhorror.com – “The only known home video release occurred in Australia on the King of Video / Video Budget label and their release is reduced down to just 70 minutes from the original 87.”

    I believe this 70-minute version is actually the R-rated cut. It was also released in a version that included X-rated material filmed later with different actors.

    Second attempt to post this.
    The 1934 Sophie Tucker vehicle “Gay Love,” which is a title with a different meaning now than it had when this musical starred “the last of the red-hot mommas.” Don’t know why it’s so hard to obtain her actual movies, and just because this one was produced in the UK by British Lion Film Corp. that does not explain things, even if IMDB only gives it a rating of 6.5*.

    “Sophie looks stunning in this film and sings four songs, only two of which she ever recorded, according to a reviewer, who points out that there is enough bawdy suggestiveness in the picture that it could not have been made in the US at that time, Turns out, the picture came out in February and the Hays office and its notorious production code to protect adults in the land of the free did not go into effect until the middle of the year.

    Sounds irresistible to me. Anyone?

      Hi.
      Only have ‘That Enchanting Night’ at the moment, don’t know how’s the quality of English need to check, some of the subtitles for Chinese films are really terrible but hopefully they are decent. ‘Fascinating Affairs’ looks like it was released on VCD many years ago but I can’t find a copy online, will add it on the Wanted list.
      Thanks!

    Hello again Jon, and thanks so much for the previous Monica Vitti gem. Here are 2 more that I’m looking for, if you can find them of course:
    – Le Quattro Verità (1962) – this is a film with four segments, La Lepre e la tartaruga (loosely adapted from La Fontaine) from Alessandro Blasetti is the one with la Vitti. There is a very short clip on YouTube, but I’m pretty sure the actual segment is more than 2min long! Perhaps her role is that short, though.
    – Francesca è mia (Roberto Russo, 1986), to function as a double bill with Scandalo segreto.
    Thank you again! Good luck 🙂

      Hi again Apneia,
      No luck with those two for now but I’ll let you know for sure in a few days, I will ask a Italian collector friend if he has them, so far only been able to find French and Spanish dubbed copies of “Le Quattro Verità”.
      Thanks a lot for the coffees! It’s of big help right now, really appreciate it 🙏.
      I’ll be in touch.

      Best,

      Hi Alan.
      I have this one, it’s also currently available to watch on Dailymotion if you don’t want to wait till I get it up: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5h83ku
      Same copy that I have which is not in the original AR (1.66:1) but a 4:3 copy from a TV broadcast but good quality.

    Actually, another request… More important than the previous ones. If you could find the film Elise ou la vraie vie (1970), also with Marie-José Nat, also by Michel Drach, I would be extremely grateful. It is extremely difficult to find, even here in France. There is a substantial clip on YouTube, some 15 min. It was a notable film in its time, so there must be a copy somewhere.

    Thank you so much for providing this incredible content for free! I still can’t believe this site exists.

    If possible, is there any way to upload a hi-res version of Harvey Keitel’s 2006 film “A Crime”? IMDB URL is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489010.

    I searched everywhere and found it with great difficulty in extremely low-res (289MB) so I thought I’d request a hi-res version. Please forgive me and ignore this if I’ve inadvertently broken any of your rules — if I have, please rest assured it’s not intentional. I have the utmost respect and gratitude for you — providing us with such stellar rare content must be a feat and doing it for free is just… a rarity in itself. Thank you again for everything that you’re doing here.

    Jon, you’re doing the Lord’s work here. Seriously.

    Have you ever heard of come across ANGELO MY LOVE (1983), It was directed by Robert Duvall and it deals with the Romani community in NYC. It stars non-actors / real member of the community, including the lead who was just 13.

    The only versions on youtube are baaaaad – 360p and even 240p. There’s never been a DVD/Blu-Ray release.

    On youtube I have come across VHS copies. But more interestingly, I have found LaserDiscs. I wish I had a player! If that is something that interests you. I’m happy to purchase it as a contribution for rarefilmm, of course!

    “The White Birch” episode of “The Name of the Game” (Nov. 28, 1968) guest starring Boris Karloff. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0657049/?ref_=fn_ep_tt_1
    Karloff plays a Solzhenitsyn-type writer trying to smuggle his new manuscript to the good guys at Howard Publications from under the eyes of the Soviets on a moving train.

    “The King of Denmark” episode of “The Name of the Game” (Feb. 20, 1970) guest starring Margaret Leighton. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0657030/?ref_=fn_ep_tt_1
    Where the good guys at Howard Publications are trying to determine if they’ve found the lost first version of “Hamlet”.
