Fantastic! It's in 2.35:1 Widescreen.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King Of The Khyber Rifles [DVD] (DVD)
Amazon has a tendency to lump all reviews of a film together, regardless of which release is under discussion, which can be very confusing. Also, Amazon's listing for 'King of the Khyber Rifles' states that it has been released by Pegasus, and that it is in 4.3 full-screen. Well, I received my copy this morning. The cover is exactly as shown on Amazon, but on the back it states that the release is by Elm Street Media, and that the presentation is in 2.35:1 widescreen. Having played it for confirmation, I can confirm that it is indeed in 2.35:1 widescreen.
I have been looking for this movie for years in widescreen, having previously only had it on VHS in full-screen taped off the telly. I have given it four stars because it isn't a great movie, but I love cinemascope releases of films about the Empire.
On a final note, if you want this film in widescreen, make sure that you get the Elm Street Media release (I know nothing about the Pegasus release listed by Amazon as being in full screen).

Hi, could you please let me know if the audio is 2.0 stereo or, which seems far-fetched, in its original 4.0 stereo format?

I am sorry to have to report that the sound is mono. The music is by Bernard Herrman, and you can hear strains from such films as 'Jason and the Argonauts' and 'Mysterious Island,' for which he also did the music. The give-away lies primarily in the low woodwind sounds.

You didn't point out this is non anamorphic widescreen, i.e. unless you zoom on a widescreen TV you'll have black bars on all sides.
