Yes Columbia released many F/L prints, but were only made available for the U.S. and Canada markets, "Born Free" was F/L for sure as well as a number of other titles like "The Jolson Story" long before derann released it, and one of my favourite 1930's films "Only Angels Have Wings" was also released. You had to bring them into the U.K. by some means, usually you had to use a friend in the States as I was told they would not send direct to the U.K., although I believe you could order them direct from JEF FILMS, at a slightly dearer price.
