"This epic movie was and still is a milestone of its genre. Wonderful. So when it became available on DVD, I felt lucky and very satisfied for the way that technology provided all of us nostalgians out here with alternatives to the old film-rolls, VHS cassettes, vinyl records and so forth. The fact that the DVD had the format of 4:3 and mono sound did not bother me than at all. But, still, last year a new 16:9 format version of the film on DVD apparently became available. A jewel like this deserved to be bought again, I thought, so it could be given full ovation on the new LCD TV and then the extra picture area on the sides seemed tempting as well. So joyous I got hold of a new version and then it went in to the player at least. Quite right; extra material was there at the sides, but something did not add up ... It has been cut over and under!! So then; the 4:3 and the new(?) 16:9 versions have the same total square area, the same sound (fair enough, but sill) and just about the same colour quality.(The "new" 16:9 has got a vague red'ish blur.) A scam! That's my claim. Be aware now. It's just an attempt to squeeze additional dineros out of the classic. The "old" DVD 4:3 version is all that we need."
