This is a little known classic, and DVD Savant has the first review: http://www.dvdtalk.com/dvdsavant/s1324smile.html The topic isn't new, but what is it with these letterboxed releases? Is it such a big effort on the part of a DVD manufacturer to include anarmophic enhancement? (I'm not being rhetorical, that's a serious question.) As much as I love the film, I simply can't bring myself to order this. Looks like I'll have to wait for a Region 2 PAL release to at least get some decent resolution on the picture.
