Does anybody have a list of the anamorphic widescreen Criterion discs? Also, when did they start using anamorphic. I wanted to buy "How to Get Ahead in Advertising" but its letterboxed and I have to zoom in on it and the picture is terrible, so is a new version coming out now? Thanks.

Just go down the list and click on each one to see. For example, "How To Get Ahead..." says:
Film Info
1988
94 minutes
Color
1.85:1
Dolby Digital Stereo 2.0
Not Anamorphic
English

Why aren't certain early Criterion DVDs anamorphically enhanced?

Criterion began releasing 16x9 enhanced DVDs with Insomnia (spine #47). Ever since, we have released anamorphic DVDs whenever possible. A large percentage of Criterion DVD releases are indeed enhanced for 16x9 televisions.

Criterion is considering the possibility of re-releasing some of our early DVDs in 16x9 enhanced editions. Please keep an eye on our website for any future news and updates regarding this project.
