    These two Italian posters would also make a good cover as well.

    You can do a little better at Barnes and Noble Criterion sale if you are a member and if sale is on when title is released, November 13th. Coupons have not been working for Criterions during Criterion sales at B&N the last few years. Still you never know. Always a chance they will work next sale.

    As a B&N member I decided to bite on this Amazon pricing.

    I bit on this price, too. I'm not a B&N member, so I will not get a better price than this during their 50% Criterion sales.

    Me too! I was going to say my old BD of Some Like It Hot would suffice...until I checked my DVD Profiler and found I had never upgraded from my DVD copy! :eek:

    Trigger pulled.

    You might say it's your preferred aspect ratio. Wilder might disagree with you.

    Can't imagine Wilder would care much, but yes, it is my preferred aspect ratio.

    1.85 is the intended AR. What’s the issue?

    DP John Seitz was nominated for "Double Indemnity" (1944); "The Lost Weekend" (1945) and "Sunset Blvd." (1950).

    DP Joseph LaShelle was nominated for "The Apartment" (1960); "Irma La Douce" (1963) and "The Fortune Cookie" (1966).

    DP Charles B. Lang, Jr. was nominated for "Sabrina" (1954) and "Some Like It Hot" (1959)

    IMHO, Billy Wilder cared very much.:popcorn:

    No issue! Just prefer the 1.66 framing and am glad it exists in this ratio on the MGM blu.

    But the 1.66 shouldn't exist, period. It is wrong and though I hate screen caps you can see just HOW wrong in every single cap. No heads are lopped off that weren't intended to BE lopped off for proper framing. Oh, and heads are also lopped off in 1.66. Billy Wilder and his cameraman's framing is the ONLY framing that counts.

    It's the old canard that someone decided to transfer all the UA widescreen films that were not 'Scope in the 1.66 ratio, whether they were framed to be shown in that ratio or not. No guesswork.
