Okay, so about two years ago I buy a copy of the original HBO Home Video DVD release of Sidney Lumet's Q & A. It didn't say anywhere on the case that it was widescreen but I figured "what the hell, it'll probably never see the light of day in OAR anyhow." I get back to my apartment, pop it in the player and lo and behold! it's widescreen (anamorphic 1.78:1)! Now, this last Tuesday I walk into Best Buy and, what's sitting there on the shelf? -- a new Fox Home Video release of Q & A. Only this time the package states that it is indeed 16x9 widescreen and 2.35:1 to boot! I check the IMDB (which, I know, is not the most reliable resource in the world but I couldn't think of anywhere else to look) and find that they say the theatrical aspect ratio for Q & A is 1.85:1. Needless to say, I am muy mucho confused. I suppose the thing could have been filmed Super 35 and then matted to whatever the heck you want, but what was the actual ratio it was projected at back in 1990? I don't know of a single other Lumet film that was done in anything other than 1.66:1 or 1.85:1. Anyone have any idea? I'll trade up if the new Fox DVD is the true, correct AR but would like to make sure before I go lay down $10.00 (yes, it's pretty cheap) for a movie I already own.
