    Hi Folks,

    I've just started reading "The Tale Of Genji" by Murasaki SHIKIBU. (All surnames of people listed, are in capital letters!) It's the very first, genuine novel ever written, back in (c) 1000AD, and is about 1200 pages long! :eek:

    Anyway, there are three versions of the film in existance.

    1) Genji monogatari
    (aka The Tale Of Genji)
    Japan - 1951
    Director: Kozaburo YOSHIMURA

    2) Genji monogatari
    (aka The Tale Of Genji)
    Japan - 1966
    Director: Kon ICHIKAWA

    3) The Tale Of Genji
    (Japanese animation)
    Japan - 1987
    Director: Gisaburo SUGII
    Released by: CPM Central Park Media

    Does anyone know if an English dubbed or English-subtitled version (of any of the above three versions) is available on DVD, please? :confused:

    Thanks, in advance! :)
