A Countess From Hong Kong ADDED

Postby Antonio_Torres » 17 Apr 2019 03:49

I would like to request the film "A Countess From Hong Kong" directed by Charles Chaplin, but it is the Blu-Ray released in the U.S. on February 5th, 2019. Currently there is only one listing on the site of the release in France.

Doesn't seem to be any reviews available but it appears to be barebones, 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio Mono, English HoH subtitles and that's it. Hopefully someone owns it or knows of a review which mentions the specs in-depth.

I didn't enjoy this film at all personally :lol:

I did not enjoy this film either if I am going to be honest :lol: . I just have a large Chaplin collection of my own and my copy of the movie just came in the mail and I just watched it and it honestly is not the best. It does not even have a menu to click play from and there are no extras whatsoever!

It's a manufactured-on-demand title isn't it? If you own it, could you post the full specs in the Your Comparisons section and we'll get it added?

Thanks!

Soundtracks: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mono
Subtitles (are they optional?): English SDH (yes)
Cuts: (and if you know it, precise run time) Yes (see comparison footnote; 107:57)
Commentaries: None
Extras: None
Notes: Not even a menu to press Play: it starts up automatically on insertion
Easter Eggs: None
Amazon ASIN (UK, French, German, USA releases only): B07MLB1CX5

You're welcome. You could also note there's just one other BD available, from Elephant Films in France (ASIN B073X8N35J).

I don't see why that is necessary when it is the winner.

Of course: I just submitted it! I meant to say there's one other from Cult Media in Italy.
