    I own the lousy Warner release of this great whodunit, and would like to know if it was released in widescreen on debut.

    I imagine it was released 1.85:1. What's the specific issue?

    I saw THE LAST OF SHEILA on its original theatrical release and it had an aspect ratio of 1.85. I don't see anything "lousy" about Warners release of it on DVD. It's an excellent approximation of how it looked theatrically, in anamorphic wide screen and a terrific commentary by stars Dyan Cannon, Richard Benjamin and Dyan Cannon.

    I, too, saw the original theatrical release, and it was 1.85:1.

    The DVD is widescreen anamorphic. I did not find anything wrong the release except colors were not so vibrant, but I contribute that to the film stock used during that era.

    The film is a great who done it and kudos to Anthony Perkins and Stephen Sondheim on the script. I am not sure there is any reason to upgrade, even if it was available as a Blu-ray.
