Viewing Notes

Threw on my dvd from the Legacy Collection to check the aspect ratio which is in fact 1:33 as I knew given that I’ve seen this numerous times including twice on the big screen in 35mm 3D. So the 1:85 on the blu-ray is cropped. :-(

Decided to listen to the commentary since I already had the movie spinning. Pretty cool tho scripted likely to die with Universal requiring approval prior to recording. Lots of interesting factoids about all aspects of the production.
