    According to IMDB Marty is 1.37:1 and disc is full screen. And Topsy-Turvy is listed as 1.85:1 as is the disc so I assume these warnings are erroneous. Can anyone please confirm this for me?

    Yes, I believe that these warnings are erroneous.

    I own Topsy-Turvy and it is not changed in any way to fit a 4x3 screen. It's 16x9 anamorphic with an aspect ratio of 1:85:1.

    Marty (which I don't own) was shot, I believe, at 1:37:1. (Actually, I think that there are two versions of Marty--one shot for TV and the other for the theater, but both are in the Academy format. Actually, now that I think about it, I think that there are two TV versions with different actors playing the part of Marty.)
