I agree 100%Sweeney Todd wrote:The invasion of wide-screen TV sets is a reality but certainly not an excuse. Any 1.33 or 1.37 movie can be seen on these sets, the only condition, if you don't want to squeeze or cut the image, is to accept two black bars on the left and right sides. This is the normal way to watch an old movie on a widescreen TV set. And idiots who want have the total surface of their screens occupied by image can squeeze or cut this image themselves - many people do that. So, as I said, the format of the screen is certainly not an excuse for the avalanche of criminally cropped old movies available on DVD.
