    It's just some poor descriptions on packaging. People are going to be REALLY let down when they recieve "replacements" that look exactly the same.

    Before I try to read all of this...

    is this just a misunderstanding of openmatte/matted presentation or a legit issue of mis-framing/cropping for MGM widescreen titles?

    It's just misrepresentation of the difference between Widescreen and Full Screen on the inserts of many of MGMs discs. The comparisons would show a widescreen image of a 1.85:1 open matte film and then place a 4:3 ratio box within that image to show how information would be cropped out. However, since the films are open matte, those representations would be incorrect and misleading.
