Sweet and Lowdown DVD

Hi-
I can't find an answer to my question anywhere on this forum or anywhere else already. So here goes: The DVD I just got from Columbia House states the film is ONLY a full frame version. Yet amazon.com says the DVD is full frame and 1.85. Yet, the packaging states it is only full frame.
Does anyone know what's really going on with this?

Thanks-
Derek

being a Sony title, some time ago they decided that it was good for them to ditch the Widescreen on many Widescreen/Full Screen movies so they could sell them for less...Amazon is right, because it was released that way back then, but Columbia decided to keep the FS only..

Was this rereleased? The version I saw was in widescreen (may have had fullscreen on the flipside or something).

That's what they get for reissuing titles in FS-only with the same UPC code.

Yeah. The original release is a two sided DVD with foolscreen on one side and widescreen on another. Sony re-released this title with foolscreen only a year or two ago along with some other titles. You may find the thread about it here.
