I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea or knowledge of the use of the new widescreen processes that arose in the early 50's. If I'm to believe the info on many DVD's, many movies from that era were still be shot in the 1.33(or 1.37 to be technical) to 1 ratio Academy Standard. Am I the only one that finds this just a little confusing and disconcerting? I mean, how long was the 1.33 ratio still being used after 1953? Can I trust when it says on a DVD that it's the "Theatrical release format" that it really is? Were some directors and/or studios more prone to use the old standard? Certainly I can tell once I watch the DVD whether or not it's being shown in it's OAR. But that's not much comfort when you consider the fact that you can't return opened DVD's. Any thoughts?
