    Aspect ratio?

    Anamorphic enhancement?

    Steve,

    IIRC AHDN was shot in 4:3 aspect ratio. IMDB confirms although they aren't perfect about such things.

    Richard Lester (director) and the cinematographer prefer the film to be shown at 1.33:1.

    Paul Rutan, who restored AHDN, has confirmed that 1.33:1 is correct, while 1.66:1 is ok for theaters. (1.85:1 will kill the film due to over cropping)

    It is about time, isn't it?

    I'm a little dubious about the full frame thing, but I suppose if that is the director's and DP's preference, I can't really complain.

    Isn't there supposed to be a "screaming" audio track, too?

    Makes me wish I would have waited for the Region 1 version instead of the Region 2 disc.

    I was out shopping today and i saw a Hard Day's Night DVD Region 2 for sale in a local store. The dvd cover was in Dutch but the language is in English with the option of Dutch subtitles. I noticed that it was also in DTS 5.1! Does anyone know if the region 1 DVD will also be in DTS or only Dolby Digital 5.1?
    here is the link to the dvd and the shop i found it in...

    I don't think the DVD had all the extra's as the future Region 1 version, but i didn't really pay attention to that.

    I saw this film at Rice University's Media Center in 1985. Richard Lester was in the audience, as he was there to take questions after the film. The film was shown at 1.33:1.

    From this, and other information posted here, I think we can infer that 1.33:1 is as correct an aspect ratio as any.

    Highlight of the evening: He said that during production he told John Lennon that he might have quite a film career ahead of him. Lennon's response: "It seems like such a silly thing to do."

    This is one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I'm just glad they finally settled on a release date. It's been pushed back too many times.

    I still hate the cover on this DVD. I would have thought they could have at least found an alternative poster from the movie to use. This cover is so generic and boring. I will probably use the cover of my original version for this one.
