Wow, I totally forgot this film was Cinemascope. The only time I watched it was a pan&scanned midday matinee type thing on some local cable channel, and I always thought it was 1.33:1.

Guess I've got me a DVD to buy...

Nope. It's CinemaScope all right.

Incidentally, I've been trying to find out, with no success, what the first 20th Century-Fox was to be shot in 1:85 after Zanuck's edict that all Fox pictures be made in 'Scope.

Anyone can give me the answer to that will earn my undying gratitude.

Yeah, I'm glad I waited on this one--I was inches away from picking up a copy at efilmic.
