For those people: change the widescreen setting on your TV...

1.0 out of 5 stars New ITV DVD of African Queen wrongly encoded in 16:9 instead of 4:3
ITV has made a grave error in the new DVD edition of The African Queen: while the original aspect ratio of 1.37:1 has been retained, the image has not been encoded in 4:3, but in 16:9, resulting in a 33% loss of image resolution and huge black bars at the sides of the image. It is virtually unwatchable on a 4:3 television set, producing a small image with a black border...

Though I've seen it quite a few times before I still love it a really great film.
I did however find the reworked picture quality disappointing and rather harsh.

This review is from: The African Queen [DVD] (DVD)
The very best Bogie film and his only Oscar (very well deserved). Made in the true style of classic films, it is one of the Desert Island DVD`s that I would take. Read the Amazon synopsis for the story if you don`t know it, I am only advising you to get it and get it sooner rather than later.
