    Except for Ron's reviews of Destry Rides Again and Winchester '73, I can't find any review of all these Jimmy Stewart westerns coming out next week. I must be looking in the wrong places...

    The question is... are they all OAR (I know Destry and Winchester '73 are, but then they're Academy Ratio...) What about afilm like Night Passage, filmed in Technirama? And Shenandoah which should be (I think) 1:85...?

    Neither DVDpricesearch.com, DVDplanet or amazon lists the specs.

    Night Passage should be 2.21:1 or 2.35:1 depending on the source. www.widescreenmuseum.com has some nice frame grabs, supposedly from the laserdisc.

    Uh.. yeah... I know it's a widescreen film.

    The question is... what are the specs on the DVDs? I can't find them anywhere.

    According to Universal's website, the DVD will be Anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1).

    And it includes the trailer, but that is about it.

    I've got everyone of Jimmy's westerns on my Netflix list. I have always been fond of the westerns he made at that time. They are offen shown on TBS but widescreen will make a big difference on the cinemascope ones like "Night Passage".
