    I just bought what seems to be the more recent of two editions of The
    Cat from Outer Space, a Sandy Duncan vehicle. Both were put out by
    Anchor Bay. Mine has the UPC 0-1313-12401-9-1. There is information
    online to the effect that this disc has both a pan&scan and a
    widescreen (1.85, I think) version, but all I see is the pan&scan,
    which is certainly unusual for Anchor Bay (more typical of Artisan),
    especially considering that the first edition of the DVD was
    reportedly in OAR. What's more, when I checked the disc ID for entry
    into my DVD Profiler database, the disc said "Disc 2", although there
    is only one disc. Profiler was even showing two ID codes. The
    established profile said not that there were two discs, but that the
    disc was two-sided, but mine has artwork on one side. The cover simply
    shows "Full-frame Presentation" under (urp) "Features" (reminds me of
    "It's not a bug it's a feature....").

    Is Anchor Bay selling two different editions under the same UPC?

    Anchor Bay did release pan/scan only editions after their intial releases based
    on some chains (Walmart and Kmart) wanting pan/scan only for their customers at
    a lower price. I've seen AB's reissue of NEVER CRY WOLF in pan/scan only, and I
    guess CAT is another such release.
