Before selecting anything we are given a menu that has two listings:
We have also been given to aspect ratios to view the film in: the original 1.37:1 AR that the film was shot in and the 1.85:1 AR that the film was shown in. I find that both ARs are right, but it depends on how you want to view the film. The 1.37 AR has too much head room at the top of the picture. The 1.85 AR looks right to me as it gives the film proper looking framing. However you view the film is up to you and neither one of the ARs is wrong.
