This subject was briefly brought up in another thread, but I feel it is important enough to have its own. I give credit where credit is due, and WB has produced a beautiful SE. However, I am a tad concerned about the way it has been cropped. Viewing screengrabs on dvdbeaver, it is apparent that the newer disc crops image on all four sides. The most concerning cropped shot is the first shot of Rick's hand ok'ing a check. The previous dvd showed the date December 2, 41. Now, I feel that bit of information is important to the story. But on the SE version, the 1 is cut off. WB and Lowry seemed to take great care in remastering this beloved title, so I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt by saying that they payed close attention to how this was cropped. I wonder what they used as a guideline, because this shot in particular seemed to be framed very specifically (not that others weren't, but this is a most obvious example.) I have noticed that a lot of WB remastered titles are cropped a little heavier than previous versions. Is this due to the process used, or are they being more faithful to the original framing?
