[quote=“retask, post:72, topic:1926”]Which ratio was this movie actually shoot on? I mean, I think its obvious looking at some of the shoots in the movie that part of the picture is missing, f.ex. when Kinski is holding up the wanted poster in the beggining. In comparison with other SWs the picture quality is really bad on every release of this one, except the french thats a little better.
Where is the original print?[/quote]
We’ve been discussing this for quite some time, just read back this thread
I think it was shot in 1,66:1 (like for instance Django), which was a popular aspect ratio in latin countries in the sixties and seventies
Some still think it was shot in 1,85:1
The French disc, which has indeed good image quality, is in 1,76:1 approx; the new DVD seems to have the same AR, so they probably used the same master.
