Yes, folks, the new CASTLE KEEP widescreen edition is indeed 16x9.

    It's great that Columbia has responded to the brickbats and released a widescreen edition so shortly after the lame debacle that was the pan n'scan release.

    It doesn't mention its Anamorphically enhanced/16x9 anywhere on the package and marketing really should have put a widescreen banner on the front or something to differentiate the release...

    For the record though, the dvd is anamorphically enhanced as is the trailer which is included.

    What's Castle Keep? I've heard of The Keep, and I've heard of The Castle -- but not Castle Keep.

    Now if they would respond to the thousands of other customer complaints regarding OAR and cheesy-looking catalog transfers and ridiculously high retail prices...

    You mean like these amazing transfers of Lord Jim, Bonjour Tristesse, They Came to Cordura, 3:10 to Yuma, The Swimmer, Baby, The Rain Must Fall, Radio Flyer, Devil at Four O'Clock, Eddy Duchin Story, Picnic, The Professionals, Requiem for a Heavyweight - well, I could go on and on. All of the above are, of course, not cheesy and all are in their OAR. I think you'd be hard pressed to find ten percent of Columbia's output on DVD that isn't presented correctly. It's maddening when they don't, but this rush to constantly damn a studio that most of the time gets it right is not really fair or accurate.

    Excellent news, I can add this film to my collection now.

    It's good to hear customer feedback can make a difference. Now if only they'd listen to us again and release A Midnight Clear in OAR.
