    Is there a DVD of the original "Shining" starring Jack Nicholson that is not in the 4:3 aspect? I hae checked occasionally, but have found no widescreen versions.

    Thanks

    Long story, but chock it up to the director's approved version being 4:3 and not widescreen. Perhaps there have been widescreen releases on other regions, but I think Region 1/North America has always been 4:3.

    It was in 2003 when this was posted, but not now! The 2008 SE DVD was 1.85:1 - and so is the Blu-ray.


    Yeah, I know it might seem lame to respond to a 12-year-old post, but I just wanted to put that info out there in case anyone happened upon the thread and didn't realize the then-correct comments were outdated! :)
