A second flat disc would be nice and I would pay a little extra for that. As it is these releases do not really work very well on my scope screen as they have an aspect ratio of ca. 2.2 to 2.5 in the middle and ca. 2.0 at the edges. I however think that more people prefer it in smilebox and the budget is certainly tight so with only one version being made available it is smilebox only.Will Krupp said:I'm in for this but is this ONLY a smilebox release? It was originally shot flat in 70mm (todd-70) and then re-edited and released in bastard Cinerama a few years later, yes? Won't the smilebox process in this case ADD distortion that didn't originally exist rather than correct the perceived distortion of showing the three panel system on a flat screen?
I was also thrown off by the "2000 edition" shown at the bottom of the Screen Archives page. But that didn't influence my decision to order this title immediately, as I have done for all the Cinerama titles.Strohmaier said:There are no limitations on the Cinerama titles. They will just print up more.
