    "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" Picture taken from: ( http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/special/cinerama.htm
    Does anybody know when this will come out on DVD?
    It would be great for Christmas time, because of "The Shoe maker and the Elves" sequence, or would be welcome anytime for that matter.

    I heard from somewhere that WB is restoring the 2 MGM Cinerama films...since the existing LBX versions are 70mm "composites" which lose a bit of picture information from all sides.
    I think WB should make 2.60:1 (Cinerama ratio) anamorphic transfers for How The West Was Won and Grimm...but use the "smilebox" process that is being used for the Cinerama documentary.
    Basically, the sides are stretched and the image forms a "curved" image simulating the original cinerama format. If you'll notice, most shots in the 2 MGM Cinerama's look warped because of the flat picture.
    I think it would be neat to see WB make the first anamorphic transfer of a Cinerama movie...
