Hi,


did anybody do a copy of the pledge when it was aired by HBO ?

As it is a Super 35 movie I wonder if it was really cropped or an open matte presentation.


For CRT users it would obviously be easy to blank the parts that weren't shown in the theater.


I compared another Super 35 movie, Gladiator, with the DVD and didn't notice any cropping, only more of the Super 35 print was shown.


Thanks

THE PLEDGE is not Super 35 (despite what the invariably inaccurate imdb technical specs claim). It was shot using (uncredited) anamorphic lenses -- see Widescreen Review mag for confirmation -- meaning any non-2.35 AR is modified.

Thanks Michael,

that's too bad - I had hoped from reading imdb that it might be open matte, but this is obviously impossible.

Shame on HBO as always !
