"And Now For Something Completely..." Wrong??
Haven't been around in a while, but I knew the folks here might be able to help me. I have the reissue of Monty Python's "And Now For Something Completely Different" DVD that came in the 3-pack with Holy Grail and Munchausen. Recently I've seen the standalone reissue in a full-sized DVD case, and on the back it gives the aspect ratio as 1.85:1. I do recall that the other two films in the 3-pack were 1.85:1 (albeit not originally), so I assume that may be why this one says that, even though my slim version has the same cover art and says 1.66:1. Of course this is also Sony who is famous for lying about aspect ratios on their covers.
Since there hasn't been any word about a Blu-ray of ANFSCD, I'm concerned about getting the ORIGINAL aspect ratio. Given that it's a UK film, the 1.66:1 seems like it would be the original AR, but of course there's IMDb saying it was 1.85:1. I know that some films like Dragnet were released on DVD in 1.66:1 because it shows no black bars on widescreen sets, but then a 1.85:1 version came out because it was correct. Then of course that was a US film.
So, does anybody know what the OAR of ANFSCD was, and whether the standalone DVD actually IS 1.85:1? I don't want to miss out on having the film in OAR if it's never coming out on Blu-ray, but I also don't want to spend $9.99 and find out that A) it's not really in 1.85:1 or B) it's in 1.85:1 but that wasn't the OAR.
