I do recall hearing the UK video was framed better than the US release - if it indeed comes from the UK video - leaving more room on the sides but not an incredible amount.

So there we have it folks, turns out it's just another VHS to DVD transfer from the folks over at Televista, hopefully someday MGM will throw it out on a double feature or something the way it should be released and we can finally have a definitive edition.
Yuck, just a fullscreen DVD likely sourced from a VHS tape? Screw that then.

What happened to the "It IS definitely WIDESCREEN" from earlier in this thread?
