    According to this site, the original version of this edition had
    incorrect aspect ratios, which cropped the films and destroyed
    composition:

    MGM recalled, fixed the ratios, and rereleased. I bought it. My UPC
    labels agree with the ones on the site that are listed as "corrected
    versions", but when I play the films (Shame, Persona) in PowerDVD, the
    scenes are still cropped to a 1.66:1 ratio, and look exactly like those
    on the site listed as "incorrect ratios". I've searched through the
    program options, but can't figure out what the problem is. Any
    suggestions?

    Thanks.
