    Can anybody here tell me what the real screen format size is??

    The box lists the program as full screen... yet I just watched it and it was shown in letter box on my TV?!?

    This was a made for TV movie that I found really great to watch the second time around... with out all the network TV breaks and the two night split!!

    And ad the 5.1 sound of the DVD makes it really nice to watch.

    Must be another misprint on the artwork, like Twin Peaks: Season 1.

    Yes, it's widescreen, and anamorphic also. A very pleasant surprise for a change. A quality presentation all around.

    What what what??!!

    I skipped this one in squarescreen on DVD because while watching the initial broadcast it felt like it ought to be in widescreen. I figured we'd find a widescreen release later.

    It really is widescreen anamorphic? Bad packaging almost cost them this sale!

    Artisan calls it 16:9 fullscreen when it's anamorphic. Don't worry about it.
    FYI- The Giant is played by the Muppeteer of Rolf, Pepe, Swedish Chef, and a host of other characters [​IMG]

    Okay, I am a classic Muppet fan, but PEPE rocks... ok! [​IMG].
    I'll be picking this one up after all. If Jeff says it's anamorphic, it must be [​IMG]. Pleasant surprise.
