1938 release of Grand Illusion

Unread post by foundintranslation » Sat Jul 01, 2017 9:49 am

This is a bit of a cry from the heart to anyone who might have an old VHS copy of La grande illusion/Grand illusion in the attic....

I'm looking for a copy of the 1938 United States release of the film by 'World Pictures Corporation'. The credits looked like this:


It used to be available on Youtube, but seems to have disappeared over the years. I think it was released on at least one of the very many US VHS releases of the film.

It would be differentiated from other releases by the opening credits as well as by the subtitles. (Note: it's *not* the 1958 release with subtitles by Herman G. Weinberg, or the 1930s UK release which was titled, iirc, by Mai Harris).

If anyone had a lead on a copy, I'd be really grateful for a PM.
