Don't even try to say that thing that sits on some shelves is a DVD. It looks like it was copied from my sister's tape.
Yeah, we have this dreadful "DVD". The winner of seven Academy Awards, nominated for ten, and all we get is a nasty, noisy, panned and scanned disaster. We wanted to watch it one night, and as soon as we noticed that it was a P&S botch job, out of the player it went.
I just did an IMDB search, and found out that it is available in Region 2 in widescreen format. I guess I'll be annoying the MPAA by purchasing an import and playing it on my computer player with DVD Genie.
Follow-up: I just asked my wife, and she told me that both "The Sting" and the butcher job of "Fly Away Home" have been returned to Columbia House. Luckily, "Fly Away Home" is being re-released in a proper wide-screen version for that Carrol Ballard's wonderful composition can be seen in all it's glory.
