    I think Jose was joking with the 1.37 remark.

    Of course it was shot for 1.85, Universal had been shooting that way for 4 years, and by the time of release in 1958 there was virtually no theater in the US that would have shown it in any other ratio.

    That's what I'm thinking. I also am wondering about the scanner quality since the difference in the picture between the MOC and Universal does not seem that much better to my eyes. I thought that a 4K scan of the original negative would look better than it does (which is not to say it's bad, just not that big of a difference).

    Hi Kevin. Although he seems very knowledgeable, I always have a hard time understanding Torsten's writing, probably because he's not a native English speaker, and his verbosity gets in the way of the meaning. However, 'color timing' is done on any film, color or B&W. It's how the grayscale, etc. are set. I don't know if it includes contrast too, but I think it does.
