Blu-ray.

I can remove the subs on both versions. Weird that the DVD isn't the same?

I bought it on DVD, I confirm non-removable subtitles (not a problem for me, my english is not great and my french, however, very good).
I have to check, but I think the "director's cut" is the italian cut...
The documentary is truly exceptional. Smiley

It's weird that they treated the BD and the DVD differently regarding subtitles. As I mentioned before the BD definitely allows removal on both versions:

Well I went back to my DVD, and the subtitles are removeable. That is, with both feature versions - not the supplements (it should have been the other way around). Could be you have to forward the film, remove the subtitles, and then go back to the start...

The "Director's Cut" seems the normal 122’ MGM's cut (so is the French theatrical version to been cut) and – I suppose – the Italian theatrical version (but I have to check, because "Cross of Iron", for example, in Italy was cut than the American version).
I will check also if the subtitles are removable in the way that Mike said…

Finally got my copy. Great job Mike as always! It's nice to see one of Peckinpah's later films get a good transfer. I really hope more start to pop up on Blu-ray in more regions. I realize this won't help many but I play Blu-rays through a computer and for me the subtitles were on by default but could be turned off with no problem.
