• The Great Escape 1998 DVD release 2.69:1. Why?

    From cinemad@21:1/5 to All on Mon Jan 25 00:09:04 2016
    According to www.beaverdvd.com the 1998 dvd release was 2.69: 1.
    The film was filmed in anamorphic Panavision which is 2.35:1
    Anybody know the story here?

    Incidentally I'm not very impressed with the Blu-ray release(2013)
    The colours look dark and muddy.
    What condition is the ocn in?
