    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Summertime (1955) (Blu-ray)

    For every person posting in this thread about how the film hasn't been cropped for widescreen (and to be clear, it would unavoidably have to be cropped), a widescreen release would trigger 100 more complaints from elsewhere about the film losing picture compared to prevous releases.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Summertime (1955) (Blu-ray)

    Perhaps so, but would any of that image at the extreme edges of the frame have been visible in theaters in 1955? I don't think this really addresses the prime question of what ratio the film was actually intended to be displayed at.
