    DVDFile is reporting that Artisan plans to release Operation Petticoat on 9/18 in full frame. Does anyone know the OAR for this film?

    I didn't see this thread before I posted my own rant, sorry.
    I can find no info anywhere on what the OAR was, but there are widescreen vhs copies available, so we do know that full-frame in this case means pan & scan.

    Leonard Maltin always lists the "scope" process used in widescreen films, and he doesn't mention one for OPERATION PETTICOAT. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this is an "open matte" full frame release and not pan and scan. But I'm disappointed that this isn't going to be enhanced for widescreen. [​IMG]

    Well, I guess this will be one more title for my Will Not Buy List ... i.e. DVDs released without OAR and/or widescreen enhancement. I'm up to 38 titles. [​IMG]

    I watched my copy of Operation Petticoat last night and thought it looked good. Some grain was evident in some scenes but probably the best this film has looked on home video. It's letterboxed for those who are interested, and it looked like a 1.66:1 framing. Sound was decent but is only mono, and no extras are present.
