Thanks for setting that issue straight, Jack. I was hoping you'd chime in.
I've kept a full-screen VHS because I find the additional top and bottom information interesting at key points of the film. A shadow is added to the lower part of the frame during the shower murder. There is no question that the widescreen version is right and better, although sometimes it seems a little tight.
Still an awesome achievement, any way you look at this film.
