Product Description

How the West Was Won (Dbl BD Book)

]]>

Additional Features

Here at last is a properly formatted version (2.89:1 aspect ratio) of How the West Was Won, a movie shot in the super-widescreen Cinerama process that required three cameras joined together to create an all-encompassing visual experience. Unless you have a big curved screen in your home, this won't quite be the same on home video, but the image is truly fascinating to look at, ultra-sharp in its definition, and at times downright weird--as though the entire film had been shot with a wide-angle lens. Digital technology has allowed for a removal (or at least an artful de-emphasizing) of the vertical "joins" where the three different frames meet. The first Blu-ray disc has a widescreen version tailored for home viewing while a second has a special Smilebox process transfer replicating the Cinerama wraparound experience. Also on the first disc is an informative commentary with a group of interested parties and a genuinely terrific feature-length documentary, Cinerama Adventure, that gives a thorough history of the cumbersome but thrilling process. A book of production information, stills, trivia, and poster art is also included. --Robert Horton
