    I haven't seen this on any of the other sites who were involved, but dOc has posted the transcript from Wednesday's press teleconference with Ron Howard. Most of it is about A Beautiful Mind, but it is interesting to see him taking Lucas and Spielberg's side in the revisionist issue.

    I'm a big fan of OAR, but it's refreshing to see that some directors have a much more pragmatic approach to these issues than some of us fanatics.
    It's also interesting to hear that he thinks of the 4:3 aspect ratio (open matte) when filming his widescreen movies. ie. Perhaps in a sense, both open matte and widescreen for some movies are OAR.
    I do find it sad though that Lucas won't release the original version of Star Wars. I much prefer it to the "updated" version.

    Thanks for your comments, Mr. Salas. It is my job to report news of interest to our readers. Reporters are not the news; the questions and answers are. And the byline is for the intro, obviously.
