Conan the Destroyer is only available in non-anamorphic, regardless of whether you buy the single disc or the Conan Franchise Collection 2-pack.
"My opinion is that (a) anyone who actually works in a video store and does not understand letterboxing has given up on life, and (b) any customer who prefers to have the sides of a movie hacked off should not be licensed to operate a video player."-- Roger Ebert

the region 1 edition of conan the destroyer is not enhanced for widescreen. however the region 2 and 4 is.
this version is enhanced for widescreen and is not edited. this version includes commentary with the director and a couple of the cast members.
Amazon.co.uk: Conan the Destroyer [1984]: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, Mako, Tracey Walter, Sarah Douglas, Olivia d'Abo, Pat Roach, Jeff Corey, Sven-Ole Thorsen, Bruce Fleischer, Ferdy Mayne, Angel Ashley, André the Giant, Ma

this version is also enhanced for widescreen and is edited for a bit. this version includes acommentary track with sarah douglas (queen taramis)
Amazon.co.uk: Conan The Destroyer (Collector's Edition) [1984]: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sarah Douglas, Olivia D'Abo, Grace Jones, Mako, Pat Roach, Tracey Walter: DVD

HBO and cinemax HD on direct tv have shown Conan the destroyer in HD. its not formated at 2.35. it fills up the whole screen, but it is in HD.
