    I'm trying to figure out which version of Kalifornia is the definitive ver. So far every site I'm look them up on they look like the same disc w/ same extras. And the search engine is down. Thanks

    The discs are identical. I prefer the jacket art on the Polygram though.

    Except the MGM version is anamorphic, and I'm pretty sure the Polygram one isn't.

    Incorrect. The MGM version is also non-anamorphic. In fact, it's the exact same transfer as the Polygram version.

    Nevermind, I was mistaken. Thinking of Fargo, perhaps.

    The MGM version IS the Polygram version with a new case and logos.

    The Polygram version says format is 2.35:1 and the MGM version says the format is 1.85:1. Shouldn't they be the same AR if it's the same transfer?
