An exemplary DVD of Fritz Lang's criminally-overlooked late noir, thankfully in high quality and with excellent extra stuff.
Someone suggested that it might be misframed - which worried me at first, but it turns out that the SuperScope version was a faked form of the 4:3 original. Informed websites reveal that the film had actually been shot in 'Academy Ratio' with widescreen top-and-bottom cropping in mind, but it's obvious from the framing and headroom on my disc that nothing's missing from the picture.
A really good buy. May more follow!
