Re: Giant: Not Anamorphic!

  1. Richard, what I said was simple. You were blaming the wrong party.
    Whether Mr. Stevens, Jr. understands what anamorphic transfers are or
    are not was never my point - I have no way of knowing whether he really
    understands it or not, just as I have no way of knowing whether Leon
    Vitale and Jan Harlan understand it re Barry Lyndon and Clockwork
    Orange. They simply made their decisions and Warners was stuck with
    abiding it. I do wish Giant were anamorphic like the Canadian DVD, but
    Mr. Stevens, Jr. wished otherwise and he controls the film. Do check
    out the interview that Joshua Zyber linked to in one of his posts in
    this thread - Mr. Stevens, Jr. talks quite a bit about his reasoning.

    I've already addressed the 1:66 issue in terms of Warners' transfers.
    Films aren't shown in that ratio in this country and with really odd
    exceptions never have been. Widescreen in the US has always been 1:85
    or scope, and only one or two of Warners earliest transfers escaped
    non-anamorphic (Virginia Woolf and Baby Jane being two of them), along
    with the non-anamophic and scope The Wild Bunch.
