It's readily available unsubtitled in France - on my last trip across the
Channel a month or so ago, I noticed it on VHS (SECAM) in two or three
video shops.  You should be able to order it from, if this
is any use.

A related request - does anyone know where I could get hold of an
unsubtitled VHS, DVD or laserdisc (or, if DVD, with electronic subtitles as
a menu option rather than burnt into the picture from the source print -
i.e. it is possible to watch the film without them) of M?

Many thanks
