    in all fairness, most of these discs were released before Disney "went good". Of course the ones (nightmare) that were re-released as SEs later still didn't get 16x9 treatment!
    Phenonmenon is another one I want 16x9

    Blackstar.co.uk just shipped my anamorphic widescreen Rocketeer today! Thank you, Malata!
    A lot of titles (from Disney and others) that aren't anamorphic in U.S. are anamorphic in Europe. I also ordered Vertigo, Babe, The Piano, Thelma & Louise, Tombstone, Pretty Woman, Frantic, Raising Arizona, There's Something About Mary, Legend of 1900 (over 40 minute longer director's cut), Stealing Beauty, and a few others from Europe. The last two aren't even available in the U.S. at this time on DVD.
    The Malata will probably be the most expensive $300 I ever spent, but any DVD player that can do nearly perfect PAL to NTSC conversion, and allow me to do the anamorphic squeeze trick on my 7 year old 4X3 53" Sony, is worth every penny. Oh, I already have an amamorphic Time Cop and Don't Look Now from Europe. Lovely...

    Legend of 1900 is available at www.dvd.it
    Do search for Tim Roth to find it since it's under the Italian title, but the DVD is listed as having an English track along with Italian. And the website is in English, easy to order if you click on the English language link at the top of the webpage. My copy shipped yesterday, ordered late last week. I'll try to post a note on the quality after I receive it, whenever that is. It took almost a month to get Don't Look Now from Germany after I received a shipping notice from the German Amazon.com.
