    Two of my favorites from my childhood "Chiller Theater" days.

    I wonder though if The Neanderthal Man should have been 1.85x1. Perhaps one our many resident aspect ratio expert can chime in on this.

    Not a deal breaker either way. Just glad, and amazed that these 2 titles are going to be available on blu-ray.

    On the recent 4 Fer release DVD, which I think is through SHOUTtoo , NEANDERTHAL MAN was 1.85, but according to all the postings and screengrabs I have seen, it seems it really should be 4:3. Someone thinks the HD master on some cable station that requires films to fill the screen was used. In any event, if the press release is correct, this has been fixed.

    I watched it about a year ago on Netfilx (streaming in HD) and it was 1.85x1.

    Neanderthal Man began production late 1952, prior to the widescreen switchover. Academy ratio is correct.
