I currently have the dvd version of this movie and what I would like to find out is - was there ever a laserdisc version of this film released and if so was it in the OAR of 2.35? I am asking this question because who knows if and when the studio will reissue it in widescreen. Posted Image Posted Image

The DVD is open matte with some P&S scenes perhaps since it was shot in Super-35.

I think Columbia owns this film.

Yes, the film was released in widescreen on Laserdisc. My copy rotted, though (goold old Sony) and I am lucky enough to live in a region where the DVD has also been released in anamorphic widescreen.
