Wikipedia is (mostly) correct. The video quality of second issue of 'Terminator 2," while THX certified, was indistinguishable from the first SQZ issue.
There are two Japanese test/promo discs that have some anamorphic content in them - one for DTS and one for Dolby Digital.
All of the "anamorphic" discs provided images that were noticeably improved in detail over their standard letterbox editions and are thus nice to have if you're a laserdisc fan.
"Free Willy" is the most difficult to find, since it was the least popular. I had to purchase a set of all four Toshiba discs to get it, even though I had the other three. Now that I write this I think I still have some duplicates! ha
