I think this thread will explain, if not excuse, why it is shown in P&S.

It seems like all the footage isn't available in letterbox.

One thing that TCM has done is that it has shown two classic MGM musicals, "Brigadoon" and "Seven Brides.." in the 1.85:1 versions. The films were released in the U.S. in Cinemascope and originally in Europe in the "flat" versions. They're not pan and scan but separately photographed, mostly similtaneously with the widescreen shooting, but with some scenes shot at a different time (primarily the musical numbers). I had always hoped that MGM, then WB would have released these two with both versions on DVD.

There was a 2-disc laserdisc set with both versions of "Seven Brides", but looks like the DVD only has the Scope version.

TCM is not perfect, but it's the best alternative, film buffs have for watching classic films in their OAR.
