    Chimes At Midnight is available as an R2 PAL disc from Spain, but the AR is listed as 4:3. I can find no info on the films OAR, but obviously want to avoid P&S. As this is from the 60's, I doubt it was shot full frame, but I'd like to know for sure. Anyone know?

    The disc is letterboxed at around 1.75:1. I don't have it on hand to check at the moment. I think the 4:3 in the listing means it isn't anamorphic. The disc looks quite nice, by the way.

    Wow, thanks Jeff, sounds like a good buy to go along with the Bunuel's I was going to order.
