A friend of mine ordered a normal big screen TV which is a 60 inch one. But it isn´t widescreen.

Yet he has this question:

1:Without the black bars on the left and right side of my little TV, am I going to see the whole picture of a movie, or do i need a widescreen TV for that?.

But the real question is: Will he get the whole picture just like in the widescreen one, but with Letterboxing?

Just to add a bit: He will get everything that's on the DVD.

However, many people with 4:3 TVs get pan-&-scan DVDs because they will fill the screen (or play the standard side of DVDs that contain both formats), so they do NOT get the whole picture. But this has nothing to do with the TV. The principle that the TV plays everything that's on the DVD is still true.
