Default NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD George A Romero 1968

Romero's classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is released on February the 24th in this rather nice mediabook.
Their website lists the aspect ratio as 1;66;1 anyone picking this up?

Still not widescreen but 1;66;1 is better than 1;33;1 is it not?

Not really, as it is supposed to be full frame 1.33/1.37: 1

Any kind of widescreen display of NOTLD will compromise the framing. It has probably played cinemas around the world masked into a variety of ratios, but the correct one is 4:3.

Yeah I know 4;3 was the original aspect.
I don't have a telly from D E R anymore though!

I don't see how a 16:9 rendering of it is going to be desirable in anyway.

So you'd rather lose picture information?

Were you not bothered by panning and scanning when you had a 4:3 telly?

While on the subject of NOTLD, I was saddened to hear of Bill Hinzman passing away recently.His daughter said he asked to be cremated after he died as if he was buried he might just come back.
