    Watched this yesterday- excellent film, and great picture quality. No sign of Edge Enchancment. Set the TV to "Wide" but the far left & right corners are squashed (when a bloke was in the corner they were dead thin)

    I don't think it's my TV- was this filmed in Panaromic version (sides of the theatre curved in?)

    It was filmed in CinemaScope Aspect Ratio 2.35:1.

    Was this that made you think of Hardy Kruger in your other post?

    Did you spot Anton Diffring and Derren Nesbitt out of Where Eagles Dare in it?

    Well I watched Blue Max yesterday and I remembered and I recognicez Kruger (short part, one of pilots) and that POW film, so yep I guess so.

    Haven't seen Where Eagles Dare for years, got in urrrgghh....VHS so I'll wait until the DVD release comes out.

    So Cinemascope is the one with curved theatre screen?

    Cinerama was a curved screen and used 3 separate screens and projectors it was a ratio of 2.60:1 to 2.80:1 , the Blue Max wasnt shot in cinerama which was a short lived film format, it was shot in Cinemascope and one of the last films to be shot using these bulky heavy cameras.
