    Anyone know where I can find a copy of Robert Altman's "Images" with John William's score in a widescreen presentation. Either NTSC or PAL (prefer NTSC). I know there is a rather bad Pan & Scan of this movie in Pal format. But widescreen is what I am looking for. (It is not for me.....for someone else who already has the Pan & Scan version).
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, I'd just like to see Images...
    I've never seen that one.
    On TV, or available on home video.

    Unfortunately I don't think Altman's Images has ever been given a widescreen transfer on home video in any market or medium. It's a damn shame too, it's one of his best and most interesting pieces.
    I have a cruddy p&s copy from cable TV made many years ago and I'm happy to have it. How sad is that statement?

    I know this isn't answering your question but.... Man I'd love to see this movie! From the reviews on IMDB it's even better then 3 Women! One of those same reviews claim that Robert Altman has gone on record as saying the negative was accidently destroyed by Columbia. If that's true I doubt a letterbox version does or ever will exist.
