    I have the region 1 and its Dolby 2.0 mono. I would think all versions would be the exact same, considering the age of the movies!!

    I'm pretty sure that Smokey and the Bandit 1 in the uk box set is in 4.3 aspect ratio where as the region 1 version is anamorphic widescreen. Both versions of Smokey and the Bandit 3 are non anamorphic widescreen.
    Hope that helps.

    This is what DVDCompare says...

    Smokey and the Bandit is 1.85:1 non-Anamorphic Widescreen on Region 1 and is 4:3 on Region 2

    Smokey and the Bandit 2 is 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widscreen on Region 1

    Smokey and the Bandit 3 is 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen on Region 1
