I've always enjoyed this film. I'm baffled by Kino's decision to present this version in the 1.28:1 ratio. Since this was a silent film with no sound on film, this should have been 1.33:1, no? Or at least, I should think so...

Maybe it's to mask the round edges of the camera aperture?

Here's the MoC and Kino editions overlaid in a GIF:


Looks like Kino's is probably the most accurate after all. The earlier MoC DVD and the Kino Blu-Ray share the exact same geometry.
