Was just watching THE THING (purchased from Amazon in HD. Surprised to find it there in HD and further surprised that they have framed it in 16x9 widescreen! Surely WB knows that it's a academy ratio film! Hope if it ever makes it to blu-ray, it will be presented at 4x3, the format it was originally seen in. Jeez, this is not rocket science.....1951=no widescreen!!
