Rather than take the "On the Waterfront" thread off-topic, I started a new one. I hope the subject isn't too off topic for this forum, but I have a question regarding watching Academy ratio films on an Academy ratio SD TV set using a Blu-Ray player. I have a 35" Mitsubishi 4:3 TV set from 1994 which still gives an excellent picture. Given the state of the economy and the fact that I seldom watch widescreen movies (my favorite era is 1920s-1950s) I have no plans to buy a 16:9 set anytime soon. But it's clear that I may want to get a Blu-Ray player within the year, since that's the direction things seem to be headed for deluxe releases such as "The Robe." And if Blu-Ray is the future, I might as well start buying BD discs of my favorite films from the classic era as they come available. But how will Academy ratio films such as The Wizard of Oz play on my 4:3 television? Will it be window-boxed within a 16:9 window? How about "The Robe?" I assume it would look exactly the same on my set as an SD version would? Please enlighten those of us who would appreciate the improved sound of BD but who have no plans to jettison their $2500 Academy-ratio TVs anytime soon.
