I received the HBO Video disc over the weekend; contrary to what I'd read on a few DVD sites, the disc is letterboxed (1:85 aspect ratio) but not anamorphic. [It also runs the correct 123 minutes, not the 120 most sites list.] It looks OK on my 27" TV. The film, a Time-Life production released through Fox, might've received better treatment had it been either a Fox or Warner release. I was surprised that the movie, a vintage (and controversial) slice of NY life from the early 80s, didn't turn up at a recent festival of NYPD movies at New York's Film Forum, but I understand that the lack of a decent print was to blame. HBO seems to have gone with what they had for this bare-bones release and I doubt anything better will be coming.
