Disappointed at Cinemascope aspect !
on 22 May 2007
Being a novice at buying DVD's, I didn't realise there were so many different aspect ratios. I love this musical and the songs are great, but the viewing was spoilt by only filling up about half my TV screen. My auto aspect showed this film on 14:9 Zoom and I could only stretch this slightly with my 16:9 Zoom aspect. I wanted this film so much so I tried to see what the difference was with the version released in 2006. Disappointingly, it doesn't give the details on Amazon's or any other websites descriptions. I have now ordered the Special 2 disc DVD as this offers both 2.55:1 and 1.85:1 versions, so should solve my problem. However, I'm annoyed that if there is a single disc of 1.85:1 it is not described as such and I will now have a spare 2.55:1 disc to give away. Very enjoyable film - remembered from my youth!
