This folder's long overdue for a thread on what is arguably the best Eurospy series -- that of the French James Bond: Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, aka OSS 117.
The character may be most familiar to fellow CHFBers thanks to Jean Dujardin's portrayal in the two hilarious recent spoofs, OSS 117: CAIRO, NEST OF SPIES and OSS 117: LOST IN RIO.
Gaumont in France has just released blurays of all five of the '60s OSS 117 titles (two of which star SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD'S Kerwin Matthews, one of which stars PSYCHO's John Gavin, and the other two starring Frederick Stafford of TOPAZ and WEREWOLF WOMAN fame) -- three of them with English subtitles (a first for Gaumont as far as I can tell -- at least with these titles), two of them at least with French subtitles (which can get me by).
The best part? I just got them via Amazon.fr for about $11 each, shipping included!
The ones with English subtitles may or may not be all-region, but, to play it safe, interested fans should check whether their bluray player can be code-adjusted to play Region B blurays.
