There are a number of titles that still show up in the wrong ratio. Depends what they can get from the distributors and TCM may not have been able to update all of their titles yet.

After having watched Inherit The Wind on TCM I wondered what was going on. I was able to watch it on my Sony VW600es and it actually looked very good. It the first film I've ever seen on TCM that actually looked like HD. I decided to take a look at this thread, which I haven't looked at in months. It appears my eyes weren't playing tricks on me after all. ITW even had strong contrast to go along with the detail.


This is really great news.

Some historical perspective - when Turner started running the movies from long ago, the channel was called TNT. I was able to watch it with a 10' satellite dish on C Band. The tv was a 25" Sony CRT and the picture was crisp and sharp. Sad to say, these same B&W movies viewed today on a 50" Kuro look soft.
