    I was just about to order Snow White until I found that Disney blew chuncks again and put it out in P&S. I don't remember the origional theater release being P&S. How could they hack such a classic?

    Just remember this: Nearly all (I say nearly all because there were a few exceptions, none of which you're likely to run into) films before 1954 were full screen - Acadamy ratio = 1.37. If you see a pre-1954 film in modern dimensions, someone has mucked with it.

    Incidentally, if you go far enough back in film history, you can find some films that were 1.12:1 - really square.

    Get Snow White now before it's too late and Ebay is your only choice (actually, it will probably be on dealers shelves for quite a while) - it looks and sounds fabulous and the supplements are terrific, plus they are well organized.

    Snow White was filmed in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, so you're seeing the intended image.

    Not all 1.33:1 transfers are pan & scan.
