Whats the correct Aspect Ratio for Death Race 2000 ?

Was thinking of picking this *cough* Classic *cough* and noticed its Full Screen.

Was this the OAR or is it pan and scanned ?

open matte

Paul Bartel's other masterpiece "Eating Raoul" was shot open matte intended for 1.85:1, and DR2K is no different.

Thats the first place I looked but couldnt see anything mentioned in the technical section (other than its shot on 35mm).

I may have over looked it somewhere or its hidden in a section I never got to.


Anyone know ? All DVD's I've seen have it at 1.33. Was it ever widescreen ?


Thanks

It is NOT pan & scam!

It IS Open Matte!


Since a matted release is highly unlikely. I would say get it,its a great movie & alot of fun

i wouldnt buy it, by buying it, you are telling these studios that you dont mind FOOLSCREEN. it is not in its OAR, dont I wouldnt bother. I wish a superior studio like BU would pick this up.

This was put out on Roger Corman's own New Horizon/New Concorde DVD label. None of the films he releases on his label--from Grand Theft Auto to The Student Nurses to Piranha--are widescreen; all are open-matte full-screen presentations.

They're Corman's films (produced, if not directed) and it's his label, so one assumes that is how he wants them presented on DVD.

Pretend he's Stanley Kubrick, and then it will be all right.
