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 so that it can be uploaded, they are the following:
- 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).
- 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.
- The movie was released in 2008 or earlier.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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), TNT, HBO, Turner Entertainment Networks, RKO Radio Pictures, Monogram Pictures, Cannon Group, Milestone Films, Castle Rock Entertainment, New Line Home Entertainment, Orion Pictures, Lorimar, Gaumont, Multicom Entertainment, Big World Pictures, Pathé & StudioCanal. 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.
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:
“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)
“Chacun sa Chance” (1930)
“Verdict” (1974) — Jean Gabin and Sophia Loren.
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:
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.

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.
The movie The Fall is based on (The Fall itself, while difficult to find, is not impossible) is a Bulgarian film called Yo Ho Ho from 1981. Can’t find it anywhere but would love to see it
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.
Hollywood Pictures= Disney. This title can’t be uploaded here. It might be OOP now, but it’s extremely common
Welcome back, again!
I would like to see:
FACE TO FACE (1976) Ingmar Bergman’s 177 minute 4 part television version.
there’s a crummy copy on YouTube without English subs. and neither that original cut nor the roughly 2-hour theatrical were included in Criterion’s recent Bergman set.
Hi Jon, Great to have you back to give us some winter cheer!
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.
Not subtitles for either of those, Tony, sorry!
So great to see the site back – thank you for all your efforts to make it better than ever!
I’d love to see the two Chris Petit and Iain Sinclair films that form a loose trilogy with ‘Cardinal and the Corpse’ which you have. Those films are THE FALCONER and ASYLUM, both BBC productions and not available anywhere.

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.

Marry me again (1953)
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.
I’m looking for a copy of LA NOTTE DEI FIORI (Night of the Flowers) directed in 1972 by Gian Vittorio Baldi and starring Macha Méril, Hiram Keller and Dominique Sanda. Thanking you very much in anticipation!

Huge fan of your work, Jon – and as such I’m not fussed about a particular film. But any otherwise unavailable British film from 1925 to 1935 would do me perfectly, the more obscure the better. Otherwise, your choice – I know it’ll be a good one. Cheers!

If you could add Bloodhounds of Broadway, from 1989, that would be great Thank you for what you’re doing!
I was wondering if you had access to the 1959 remake of THE BLUE ANGEL, starring May Britt and Curd Jurgens and directed by Edward Dmytryk. It seems pretty hard to see these days … I saw it as a kid and its glossy weirdness haunts me. Thanks so much for posting so much outstanding stuff, and I hope this finds you well.
Would love to see a nice print of:
THE SEX SYMBOL, with Connie Stevens (the uncut European version)
MARILYN: THE UNTOLD STORY (superb TV-film with Catharine Hicks)
SOMETHING ABOUT AMELIA
Sorry, I forgot second choices.
The Long Weekend (O’Despair) (1989) by Gregg Araki and Lion’s Den (1988) by John Ottman. Again, thank you so much!!
My last request has resolved itself, since I’ve found The Sea Children. So I’ll start anew.
Request: The Last Summer (2004)
Alternate: Emma And Daniel: The Meeting (Emma & Daniel – Mötet, Sweden 2003)
Thanks for letting me know about The Sea Children.
You can rent The Last Summer (2004) on Vimeo for $2: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thelastsummer
No Eng. subs currently available for Emma & Daniel but you can download a copy in original language from uloz: https://ulozto.net/file/VF5IYP13XhEP/emma-och-daniel-motet-2003-swedish-dvdrip-xvid-andreaspetesson-avi#!ZJV2MwR2A2DjBGZ2ZmyvLzZjMQxjZIOSnSuZZRZ4HRkvqmSyZN==
Hello! I love your website and I want to thank you over and over again for this precious initiative. I have a particular request for a series that I have been looking for continuously without any results. It is available online but without subtitles so I can’t fully enjoy it. The name in English is My uncle Napoleon, it is Iranian. I would appreciate if you could just find the subtitles for me in an .srt file. Thank you in advance.
Thanks for the kind words and support, Wijess, truly means a lot to me.
There’s a poor copy of the whole series floating around but without subs unfortunately, maybe one day it will be subbed but there’s not many Iranian fansubbers out there I’m afraid, it’s a shame because there’s a lot of great, obscure Iranian gems out there that need subs, maybe one day 🙏🙏
My requests are two hard to find Chor Yuen films:
Fascinating Affairs (1985):
and if hard to find:
That Enchanting Night (1987)
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.
I suspected as much but honestly i’m content we getting my hands on any copy. Thanks for the hard work. I appreciate it.
Thank you so much for everything you do! What a treasure trove!
I’d be ecstatic if La mort d’un bûcheron by Gilles Carle were to one day become available here.
Thanks again for everything, sincerely.
I forgot to make note of the release year. My apologies!
La mort d’un bûcheron (1973)
I have this but only English dubbed or French but without subs, is English dub OK? Let me know and I’ll add it to the queque to upload.
I attempted to find English subtitles to pair with the original audio, but to no avail. The dubbed version would be more than fine.
Thank you so much, Jon! I deeply appreciate your help.
Thanks once more for all the hard work you do.
I don’t think my comment went through, but I just want to say thanks for your hard work. Also, I was wondering if you have Heinosuke Gosho’s Elegy of the North (1957) available for upload. Much appreciated.
Thanks for the support!
I added Elegy of the North to the uploading queue 🙂
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.
Hi, really appreciate everything you do.
Im looking for Foam bath(Habfürdö) from 1980 with english subs.
Added to the queue.
I am such a fan of this website. Thank you for providing all of these films! I’m looking for Tulips (1981) directed by Rex Bromfield, Mark Warren, and Al Waxman. I haven’t been able to find a way to watch or purchase it,
I added ‘Tulips’ to the queue, it’s from VHS so don’t expect great quality, seems to be all there is avaialble for now.
Hi! Thank you much for all these wonderful movies.
I want to watch Only the Brave 1930 Gary Cooper, Mary Brian.
In KG has a VHS/DVD version with reasobable quality. If anyone could make a good rip.
This site is amazing. If I could get any one film on here it would be Gakuryu (Sogo) Ishii’s Crazy Family. Alternate choice would be Nobuhiko Obayashi’s Chizuko’s Younger Sister
Again thanks for the great uploads
Added “Crazy Family” to the queue.
Focus (1996) Satoshi Isaka
Added to the queue. Very interesting suggestion btw.
Hi! Thanks so much for all your hard work, your site is a literal godsend.
May I please request Our Last Day (1999) by Soi Cheang? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14149556/
I’ve been searching for WEEKS with zero success.
The Name of the Game Episode 02.04 The Emissary
Some movies that I believe would be important to have here:
The False Road 1920
The Witness for the Defense 1919
Lost and Won/Castles for Two – Marie Doro
On Dangerous Ground 1917
Destiny’s Toy 1916
The Great Divide 1915
– The Ice Flood 1926 upgrade Grapevine
– The Fighting Coward 1924 upgrade Grapevine
Best of all!
Sorry but I don’t have those at the moment but I might be able to get a copy of some of them, there’s a copy of ‘The Fighting Coward’ on Youtube, not very good quality but seems watchable.
The Great Divide looks like Grapevine successfully raised funds for a restoration along with some other Siegmund Lubin shorts, you can pre order it on their website: http://www.grapevinevideo.com/great-divide-1915.html $20/25 for DVD/Bluray for stuff this rare I think it’s a pretty good deal.
Hi, I wonder if you can find Junji Sakamoto’s Another Battle (2000) with subtitles? The Japanese title is Shin Jingi Naki Tatakai, but it shouldn’t be confused with the 1974 movie by that title. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0269859/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 (it’s supposed to be tied to Fukasaku’s ’70s series, but not in any direct way).
Also, I believe I have one of the movies on your “also looking for” list on a bootleg DVD. I’ll try to dig it up and let you know if I do.
I have a copy but no subtitles for it unfortunately 🙁 If you have any other suggestions feel free to post again.
I’m very curious about which film would it be the you have from my Wanted list, please email me if you find it, I really want to try to shrink that list to the ground as much as possible.
Hi! I would like to request a filipino film called “Hesus Rebolusynaryo” or Jesus the Revolutionary by Lav Diaz. It was released in 2002 and is impossible it seems like to find. Thank you in advance!
Added to the queue.
Hi. I’d like to request Yasuzo Masumura’s Lullaby of the Earth (1976). Or really, any of Masumura’s lesser-seen films.
I added it to the queue.
Congratulations again on the new site. Do you have Yûrakuchô de aimashô(Koji Shima):https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0329793/
As an alternate I would like to suggest: Taiyo No Kisetsu by Furukawa:
Added “Season of the Sun” to the queue, it’s been subbed recently 🙂
Here are my requests:
“Moving” by Shinji Sômai https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107736/?ref_=ttco_co_tt
“The Earth is a Sinful Song” by Rauni Mollberg https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071786/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0
I am also trying to get a copy of “Dans la ville blanche” by swiss director Alain Tanner fully subtitled. The Youtube version, apart from being a real bad copy, doesn’t subtitle all the German or Portuguese parts. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085400/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0
Thanks a lot for all that you have been through to make this website possible!
I’ll add the Finnish movie to the queue, the other two films you are looking for are already on the site:
http://rarefilmm.com/2021/04/dans-la-ville-blanche-1983/ (Not sure if the German and Portuguese parts are subbed but they might be, if they are not please let me know).
Onna wa nido umareru AKA Women Are Born Twice (1961) by Yuzo Kawashima
The file of youtube is bad.
Added to the queue.
Really trying to get a copy of Schanelec’s PLACES IN CITIES (1998) and I STAYED IN BERLIN ALL SUMMER (1994)
Added Plätze in Städten to the queue.
1996’s Crimetime directed by George Sluizer.
If at all possible, cheers.
Added to the queue.
Hi Jon! Looking for two titles that aren’t on YouTube and adhere to guidelines:
– Heaven and Hell aka Shaolin Hellgate (1980, Chang Cheh)
-The Invisible Avenger aka The Invisible Man (Tomei Ningen) (1954, Motoyoshi Oda)
Added to the queue.
Be aware that the English subs will probably not be very good as this seems to be the case for most HK and Chinese films that include English subtitles in their retail DVD/Bluray releases.
Thanks for all you do, Jon, and thanks for keeping us updated on the site’s ups-and-downs via Twitter!
I have a couple of films I’m looking for:
The Story of Shunkin / Shunkin Momogatari (1954)
Women in Prison / Joshu to Tomo ni (1956)
Thank you for the support!
No luck with those two films unfortunately, there’s a copy of The Story of Shunkin out there but no subs for it unfortunately 🙁
Will add Joshu to Tomo ni on the WANTED list.
Thanks for all your amazing work to keep these important films alive. I’m looking for two films (well, a lot more, obviously, but I’ll keep it short….):
The Indians are Far Away (Patricia Moraz, 1977), starring Isabelle Huppert
Il Prato (The Meadow) (Taviani Brothers, 1979)
Yokohama BJ Blues (1981) please.
Added to the queue.
Thanks for all you do Jon, do you have any of these Masumura please ?
The Most Valuable Wife (1959)
Beauty is Guilty (1959)
Flood / Hanran (1959)
Stolen Pleasure (1962)
The Husband Witnessed (1968)
Thousand Cranes (1969)
Only one of those Masumura films is not available (Beauty is Guilty) the rest all exist but none with English subtitles unfortunately, I’ll keep an eye on them as they might get fansubbed soon, sorry I can’t help this time..
Do you have an English language print of The Condemned of Altona (1963) with Sophia Loren, Maximilian Schell, Fredric March, & Robert Wagner?
Not at the moment.
Hi! Requesting the following: The Deserter and the Nomads (Zbehovia a pútnici’, Directed by Juraj Jakubisko, 1968). There’s a poor quality youtube version, but it doesn’t have any subtitles. Thanks!
This one is coming soon.
I’ve been desperately looking for some of the really rare Lina Wertmüller films. Do you have any of these? I’d be over the moon if you had any single one.
