Presumably this will NOT have forced French subtitles as it's a release from a major Hollywood studio?

If that is the case, then it's very good news. I'd almost given up on Paramount releasing their classic titles from the 60's and 70's as they've been so quiet lately, but let's hope this presages several more such releases. How about Chinatown or Rosemary's Baby for example!

I wonder if Paramount will use that Scorsese restoration that was done a few years back?

I don't know whether this means very much at all, but Play.com have a "coming soon" page for it. Here's the link:

Well, since Italian is considered the original language this release may not have any English at all - perhaps just the original language (Italian), a French dub, and French and maybe other European language subs. But as Paramount also has the distribution rights for the UK and North America, a blu-ray release only in France is highly unlikely, and a UK and/or US release will likely have English lossless audio. I've been making do with the UK PAL DVD from Paramount, and will jump at the chance to upgrade to blu-ray.

That Play page has been around for a while. Just a placeholder page like Amazon has. That said, I would be shocked if this didn't see a wider release around the same date as the French release.

That's debatable, and I suspect most people outside Italy consider it an English language movie. I don't think any of Paramount's DVDs even included the Italian audio.

Yes, it is debatable. Now that I think about it, Paramount may not have a license for the Italian audio, that may belong exclusively to the Italian studio. Just checked my UK PAL DVD by Paramount, and it has English 5.1 and French, German & Spanish mono dubs. But Italian is the original language. Sure, Fonda, Bronson et al were saying their lines in English during filming, but that dialog was never used, just the sound effects were kept. They then read their lines in a studio for the English dub, while Italians read those lines in Italian for the original audio.
