Leonard Maltin says Panavision; Amazon says 1.85:1. Who's right?
I'd like to know as well. Since there was a massive amount of panning-and-scanning in the VHS of it I saw, I'm tempted to go Panavision 2.35:1.
If you like the movie enough it shouldn't matter what the aspect ratio is (as long as its OAR). My advice is to just buy the DVD if you like the movie.
The movie is 2.35:1, and I'm pretty sure that's how it's presented on the DVD. It's been awhile since I've seen it...and I'm too lazy to go dig it out...
It's Panavision. www.widescreen.org has P&S vs. Letterbox comparisons.
P&S on 1 layer, 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen on the other
It was shot properly with anamorphic lenses, so the P&S version loses a ton
I saw this on ABC in HD a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. A few days later I bought the DVD and it has a very clean, anamorphic 2.35 transfer. The DVD is very light on extras but contains a well done audio and video presentation of a very good film.
A question on this one for those that have the DVD
the packaging lists a commentary but it doesnt seem to be on the disc (not listed in features or audio options)
am I just being blond or is the packaging wrong?
I don't know about anybody else here, but there's something special about a 2.35:1 film shot in Panavision versus a 2.35:1 film shot in Super 35.
It just seems to be more...I don't know...you get the point, I hope.
Rain, how much more gorgeous was it in the theater?
It's like anamorphic DVD and non-anamorphic with a crapload of grain thrown into the mix from the blowup.
I can ALWAYS see the degredation of Super35 theatrically, and I can ALWAYS tell when somethings anamorphic, even before I see a light source
Moe- Packaging is wrong, no commentary.
My mother met Homer Hickam last week at a book trade show, she says he's a VERY nice man
Agree about scope vs. s-35
the only good thing about s35 is that you get deep focus easier and with less light, but everything is a tradeoff isnt it?
that sucks about the commentary, was really looking forward to it!
and did your mother know it was him, or did someone point him out to her after they had said hello ;-)
"What did he say?" "Who?" "Homer Hickum!"
She's a big fan, and has been teaching the novel for the past 2 years to her students.
She saw his name on the guest list and ran over
