Ha! No, the list of movies that fit your criteria must be rather short. For example, I'm already down to:
The King and I (1956) - 2.55:1
The King and I (1999) - Aspect ratio unknown, didn't find it listed online...but it's got to be narrower than that gargantuan widescreen 1956 version.
Yeah, the 1999 remake with the same title was animated, but there it is. Got a theatrical release, too.
Now, will anyone have the nerve to mention Napoleon (1927) with its partial 4.00 : 1 (Triptych sequence) aspect ratio vs the 1955 French version of Napoleon at 1.37:1? Oops, guess I did. See, the attempts are already beginning to show signs of desperation.
