    1.33:1 windowbox, I assume.

    There are black mattes on the sides when viewed on a 16:9 set and black mattes around the picture information when viewed on a 4:3 set.

    Thanks, Rutger. That sounds like a good way to do it. Ooh, now I'm going to feel bad when a classic 1.33:1 film is not anamorphic widescreen. [​IMG]

    It's a typo, I'm sure. Anamorphic enhancement was designed to offer increased resolution (33% more) for widescreen movies, but a 4:3 image within a 16:9 anamorphic frame for DVD results in a 25% *loss* of resolution.

    It's now been changed to "... brand-new 1.33:1 digital transfer ..."

    so is there any word on if this release will have the 1 red frame in the movie or not. i thought i saw that there is a version that does not. i could be wrong about that.

    i cant really say what this 1 red frame is as it is a plot giveaway but if you have seen it you know what i am referring to.
