I noticed that the previous version of North By Northwest was 1.66:1, but seemed to cut off parts of the picture (notibly the MGM byline under "North By Northwest" gets cropped a bit). The DVD is 1.78:1 and reveals MORE information on the sides than the 1.66:1 LD. I read somewhere that MGM's flat (35mm non-anamorphic) productions were made at 1.75:1 when they started putting out widescreen films. This leads me to belive that the DVD video transfer of North By Northwest possibly could be from VistaVision. Anyone care to share their thoughts?
