    Over at DVD Times , they put up the specs for Walt Disneys Cinderella due out in October.
    the specs say its. 1:78 Anamorphic Widescreen - kind of odd as this was shot in 1950 with Academay (1:33) ratio !!!

    Some of the bonus features may be in that ratio. The movie certainly won't be.

    The site may also be confused with the Cinderella cheapquels, or may have made a mis-print.

    It must be wrong. Ultimate Disney says it's 1.33:1. I doubt Disney would pull a stunt like this, expecially when the OAR is the ultimate ratio of "family-friendliness": 1.33:1.

    ...the OAR is the ultimate ratio of "family-friendliness": 1.33:1.

    ...actually, the OAR (= "Academy Ratio") is 1.37:1

    If you're going to get pedantic, you might point out that although Academy Ratio for 35mm film is geometricaly 1.375:1, the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers has [as I understand it] recommended 4:3 as the shooting and projection aperture-plate ratio for a very long time. This is as much out of consideration for the 1.334:1 ratio of 16mm film as anything else -- TV has historically had enough overscan that 5:3 and 4:3 are scarcely distinguishable.
