    Does anyone know whether the Region 1 release of "Mean Streets" is 16:9 enhanced? I see that the disc contains both the widescreen and full screen versions but it does not mention whether it is anamorphic.

    It's anamorphic, but I might hold off buying it,(if you were thinking of doing so), as Warner is planning on releasing a Martin Scorcese box set and this title might be re-released with a commentary or as an SE.

    That's strange, for some reason I thought it was anamorphic.

    Another reason to wait Nick.

    The current NON-ANAMORPHIC transfer is pretty good. I hope that Warner puts together a SE with an anamorphic transfer, though.
