Thanks for all the information on getting a corrected DVD. I kind of put it all aside and was thinking if other things until I found this thread again. You can always depend on the kindness of strangers here on HTF

Zemeckis was big on using VV for FX work. He had first used them on BTTF II to shoot the multiple Michael J. Foxes. ILM found the old cameras which had been unused for decades, rebuilt them and renamed the system "VistaGlide" It was a viable alternative to using 70mm for FX work to reduce grain added through generation loss.

That's really fascinating. Some enterprising film buff should do a documentary on VistaVision showing its heyday in the 1950s (the technology won an Oscar) and its comeback as a special effects tool.

I too appreciate the info on replacing the 4:3 DVDs that were erroneously included in some sets. I sent my disc back to Disney and have now received the corrected disc.

A fugitive moves on, through anguished tunnels of time, down dim streets, into dark corners. And each new day offers fear and frustration, tastes of honey and hemlock. But if there is a hazard, there is also hope. - Closing narration to THE FUGITIVE, "Death Is The Door Prize".
