We located this 1970 Film BORSALINO, English Version with No Subtitles in a small video store in French Canada.......It is not easy to find anymore and most of the old ex-rentals have been tampered with...........Borsalino features Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo as charismatic gangsters in 1930s Marseilles who join forces when they meet brawling over a woman.. with fixed horse races and fights, they start to find themselves doing jobs for the local gangster bosses. When they decide to go into the business for themselves, their easy-going approach to crime starts to change........Inspired by Eugene Saccomano's novel The Bandits of Marseilles. ...The version we have is 2 Hours 5 Minutes long and is the most complete we have been able to find....We have never been able to locate a French Version in 9 years of looking........BQA Films
