For those who are a fan of the movie "How The West Was Won", check out the new DVD or Blu-Ray version. Quite amazing what the studio has done. They completely digitized the three panel Cinerama process and stitched them together into one complete image with no lines. They also visually matched the three panels. The picture is absolutely amazing!

The Blu-Ray version contains a "Smilevision" version which works quite well on a large screen home theater system. See the attachment for a comparison.

Highly recommended!

I was watching the Blu-Ray last night on my 106" front projection system. I compared the flat widescreen version to the Smilevision version. The difference is amazing. The illusion of the curved wide screen look pretty convincing. Don't know how it would look on smaller screens though.

I have been waiting for the studio to do something like this to any of the Cinerama features. With digital technology progressing, it was only a matter of time. The older DVD release looks absolutely horrible.
