Dear Diane,

both titles are available in Italy - but no English subs:

- Profondo rosso

- Indagine di un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto

In the US Profondo rosso is available in Italian and English with
English subs - according to Digitally Obsessed:
The languages mentioned by for the Anchor Bay version
probably are not correct
This seems to be a first class edition.

with kind regards

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
