5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film No Matter How You Watch It, 26 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anatomy Of A Murder [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
I acquired this DVD for 2 reasons
1) It was cheap (even in US dollars)
2) The US Version is Full Frame
Having watched both the full frame and widescreen versions of this - all I can say is no matter what the argument is on how it is shot, this is one fantastic film, a great courtroom drama with James Stewart, George C Scott,etc. I just love this film; the 2+ hr movie just goes by so quickly for me.
Some websites say it was shot full frame, others say it was widescreen, TCM shows a widescreen (aka letterboxed) version. Basically you can either watch it with more scenery on the top and bottom that may or may not have been to be viewed , or see the widescreen version which may or may not have had the top and bottom cropped..
Now I own the UK and USA versions so I can see it either way and enjoy it no matter how I see it...
This is a GREAT film and a must for courtroom drama fans, James Stewart fans as well as Otto Premminger fans (great director) who in his films was going for a more risky style (panties being mentioned in this movie wasnt exactly commonplace in film making at the time)
This film and Witness For the Prosecution I will highly recommend as they are both excellent courtroom dramas..
