This wan't easy, but I got my hands on a copy of the fully restored edition of "Falstaff (Chimes at Midnight)" that was briefly released by Studio Canal about six years ago before being yanked back off the market. If you're a regular here, you probably know that this was a PAL DVD. I've re-encoded it for Region 1 and burned it onto a high-quality Verbatim dual-layer DVD+R (which was necessary because of the large file size--it wouldn't fit on a single-later DVD-R). I've tested it on two different Region 1 Sony players (one DVD player, one Blu-ray player), and it plays perfectly in each one.
If you haven't seen it, this print looks and sounds absolutely fantastic--much better than anything else on the market, including what is basically the best readily available Region 1 copy (found here: http://www.amazon.com/Chimes-at-Midnigh ... 884&sr=8-3
I'd like to trade this copy for the newly released edition of "The Magnificent Ambersons" on DVD that comes as an add-on to the "Citizen Kane" Anniversary set. Since what I'm offering is very rare and took a lot of work to put together, I'd like the real thing (original DVD, box and artwork), not a copy. If you're interested in trading, please reply and to this message and let me know.
