    You can calm down... the back cover of the DVD states the following:

    2.55:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
    Remastered in High Definition

    i thought cinemascope came well after 1857?
    i would have guessd 1880 at the earliest.

    Josh is right, this is a widescreen release.

    The same cannot be said for all of their upcoming releases, though! [​IMG]

    Son-of-a-bitch (not you, David, I mean the news I read when I clicked on the exclamation mark).

    Ladies and gentlemen, the news comes here first...

    If I'm inferring David's hyperlink right, then the semi-cult favorite drag comedy "Just One Of The Guys" will be issued by Columbia/TriStar in full-frame.

    Damn...Might as well just stick with the VHS version.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    If "Legend Of Billie Jean" is released in pan-and-scan, I'm calling out the hounds.

    Well, another incorrect assumption shot down.

    I say again - Bonjour Tristesse and The Horsemen, two absolutely stunning transfers of films that wouldn't have even been released by any other studio. If you want my thoughts on these transfers I started threads here for both of them.

    So, Joe - amazon does make mistakes you know.

    Click on the exclamation point in Dave's post. The very sentence you copied!

    The title I'm referring to is not announced yet. When it is, and you see the back of the box, you will have no doubts.
