I own this set & I like it a lot. My least favorite movie is Gidget Goes to Rome. I can't add to the others comments about the formatting issue, I just appreciate that the movies are available to buy & watch.

Butchered movies in a 3 pack
Yarby | Medina, OH United States | 08/04/2004

"I was ready to snatch these up....until I saw those dreaded words on the back of the case: "Full Frame"!

These movies were made in the late 50's, early 60' there is NO EXCUSE for issuing them in this format. They were shot in 2.35:1 almost HALF THE PICTURE IS MISSING!!!

This is the second time Columbia Tristar has deeply disappointed me on films I wanted in DVD. The first was their butchering of "Where Angels Go Trouble Follows" and "The Trouble With Angels".

Alas, they will remain missing from my film library until they are released in their proper ratio!!"

"GIDGET was shot and released in CinemaScope, and yet the DVD is an unwatchable panned and scanned copy, which crops out 50% of the frame. Unacceptable, especially since TCM airs the widescreen version on cable! The film is ruined; don't bother.

The sequels were not Scope; they do not suffer as much.

Avoid and boycott this DVD until they go back and do it right."
BEWARE - Gidget DVDs are pan & scan

"I was all set to pre-order this DVD set of the first three Gidget films when I learned that they are pan & scan, not widescreen. All three films were made in widescreen, and the original "Gidget" was filmed in Panavision--meaning that the pan & scan version will cut off 1/2 of the picture. (I'm not sure if the other two Gidget films were Panavision (2.35) or 1.85 widescreen.)If you're thinking about buying this as a permanent part of your DVD library, you may want to wait until Columbia does a proper job on the DVD. Even if you don't have a widescreen televison now, you will before too much longer..."
