A source of NTSC videos in French without subtitles is
Bonjour America Inc in Plattsburgh, NY . Their number is
1 800 330 9565. We have also gotten videos from Vedette
Visuals in Tacoma, WA but I don't know if they are still in business.
The phone number I have for them is 206-564-4960.
Good luck with your search.
