    It's nice to see that TNT can turn off the stretch-o-vision every now and then.

    No, 4:3, or what looked like it, not 16:9.

    GWTW was not filmed widescreen. Widescreen was not widely used in 1939.

    And it looked very good Sunday morning.

    I thought we presented GWtW pretty well. It looked good through QC and looked pretty good on the air.

    I think the vast majority of folks would like it if you showed all your 4:3 material that way vs. playing with the aspect ratio.

    Well it is a very complicated issue that involves way too many people with powers of decision. Television is not easy ya know.

    Yes, but there were widescreen films before CinemaScope. GWTW was not one of them, however.
