    THE GREAT ESCAPE- one of the greatest world war two films is in need of an aspect ratio adjustment. The current dvd has an aspect ratio of about 2:78. When the special edition which I understand is in the works, comes out I hope it is corrected to its proper aspect ratio of about 2:35. Believe me this film was not filmed in ultra-panavision 70.

    The current DVD is misframed, revealing too much image on the right side.

    Many people are hoping to see a SE of this title, myself included.

    How do DVDs get misframed? Is no one paying attention to what they're doing or do they just not know what they're doing?
