Your best chance is to contact Pathe Bellevue in Montreal. Among Quebec's
isolationist laws is one that Quebec actors must be employed in the dubbing of
any foreign content shown there. Pathe Bellevue is reponsible for most of this

I think it's where they shot the dubbing scene from the beginning of
_Jesus of Montreal_. I saw John Badham outside my apartment window once (1988?)
because he had come to town to oversee the dubbing of _Stakeout_; it was in his
contract that he should do this.

I have to digress further and say that Pathe is on rue Dorchester, across
from the Otis Technologies building. This is the Otis elevator people, but the
building is only two floors tall! Perhaps it goes down deeper than I realized.
